As long as I get what I once, I dont care about privacy.

People with a good head on their own shoulders are few far and near.

If BF3 ever comes to steam, or somebody makes a crack to run BF3 without Origin, I will jump to it automatically. I will BUY the game again just to have it on steam. Thats how much I hate Origin. And yes, I know steam scans my PC.

I just uninstalled Origin. I'm boycotting. I had no idea how intrusive it was. I'm ashamed I didn't inform myself before installing it, or reading the fine-print in the EULA. No BF3 for me.

this is very scary, It sucks that my enjoyment in bf3 outweighs my fear for my invasion of privacy. This is what I think is the big problem.

Steam let's you choose you can either opt out of the scan or go for it, origin currently does not have this option.

Steam also doesn't check your scan personal folders, whereas Origin does.

If all my secure files were on Linux would it scan those too? Or would it not be able to gain access? I reall do hate that they do this to us. If I decline the TOS am I able to return a product?

We really appriciate that you become aware of the problem and we really hope that we can change the way publisher think of the gaming community.

We want games that are worth their prize.
We want games which are finished at release.
We want customer support and service which is not a email bot.
And wie want developers who create games which have a soul again - no mass production trash every half year.

Thats what we fight for.

Thx for reading.
