Programs and items in your computer pale in comparison to what you do online in a web browser.

Your internet service provider has more "info" on you than Origin.

"Some guy stole my credit card details already so I might as well share them with everyone else"
I can see the logic there.


Not at all bummed out about not having a computer for this game yet. Couple of months for this to sort out even a bit before making a decision if I really want this game or not.

Hey, I am actually from Germany and I'd like to inform you, that if you think the Screenshots are fakes there are plenty of YouTube Videos that shows exactly whats going on if you start Origin.exe.
Also, EA claims in their ToS that they have the right to do so, but that doesnt mean that they do it after specific circumstances like "Every morning at XX:XX we'll start the search for XY". With that I mean, you could be save, you could only see in the ProcessMonitor that Origin acts like normal - in its own folder - but you could also see that Origin will look out for Skype, or whatever other Program you might add here.

Hope you understand what I mean with that.

Lol that's hilarious. I'd love to see a truly well broken down run of what Origin actually scans/monitors.

Hrm. Maybe I'll boycott BF3 then. Looks like MW3 may get my money since I'm just itchin' for a new shooter. And I really don't want to feed the Actibeastofthedevil.

I wish people in the United States would get this uppity about these kinds of things. Seriously, (not draggin' in politics, just mentioning the state of American outrage) like the occupy movements, these things need to be looked into better here in America. frown.gif

There are actually some vids of this:
There you can see the user starts the installation routine of Origin, canceling it before accepting the EULA. But Origin already scanned different directories - AND the STEAM directory too - remember - before accepting the EULA/ToS!

Yea, mean while i'm having awesome fun. Such a great game, really feels like the BF of old (apart from the jets, can't get used to the FOV in them).

If your privacy means nothing to you, yes you are having fun. Gratz on that. I already see you crying when some Hackers publish your data. smile.gif

Uh, yes... of course. Well, i'll cross that bridge when it really, undoubtedly comes.

But, seriously, i'm interested to see what happens here. Not because I particularly care about what is happening, more from a PR and marketing perspective.
