EA has pretty much BOUGHT out all the studios and said "Hey you want us to publish your game? Well first we get to buy your company and hold all rights to your shares, and future titles and get to pick what gets released and how it gets released,... and it has to be origin."
Now you might think it sounds hypocritical but listen here. Have you ever heard of Valve telling a dev "Hey you have to release this by this time and must be exclusive to our platform or else we wont publish your game." No they dont they give the publishing rights to the developers and they can release at anytime. Sure some games are restricted to steam, but valve does not have a choke hold. Many games are released without having to be forcefuly placed on steam ie. Witcher 2 (yes i have the physical copy and play without steam), GTA 4 also available on steam but also available outside of steam.
Troll or flame this post all you want but this is what I believe.

i fully 100% agree

Bioware was able to push out a couple of games with the same level of polish as they did in the "good old days" (DA1, ME1), then they had to start catering to EA's policies. We see the results in ME2 (nothing more than a recruiting mission since so much was cut to make EA's deadline), and DA2 (again, only a small portion of what the game would have been without EA's crippling launch schedule). On top of that, we have Origin forced down our throats, the "it's all about DLC" mentality, the revenge bans for voicing opinions...the golden age of Bioware RPG's is over. At least we still have Bethesda and Blizzard in our corner, and smaller companies like CDProjekt still remember that games should be about games, not just the bottom line.
I'll probably break down and buy ME3 eventually, but only when I can get it from the bargain bin with all DLC included for <$30. I refuse to pay full retail to EA, and I refuse to be "nickle and dimed" with DLC. I loved Bioware, they were, in my opinion, the greatest RPG studio to ever code for PC. I've been a fan since back when they were Black Isle. It's sad what EA has done to them.

I have purchased the CE version of ME but I will not be installing it until there is a bypass released for Origin.

Finally posts that make sense in this thread, I 100% agree with all of them. I myself will most likely grab a used 360 for $50 and get a month free to gamefly to rent the game, as long as EA doesn't get any money. When and IF the game drops the Origin requirement OR comes to steam AND drops the origin requirement I will buy it for PC.

Bioware you will be missed

Except that publishers like THQ (Saints Row 3), Ubisoft (Arkham City), CD Projekt (The Witcher) and many others soon to follow, CHOSE to put their games up on Origin as third party games........

You want to try and tell me that EA is "forcing" them to put these games on Origin? Are you not aware that Saints Row 3/Arkham City are available away from Origin? Origin isn't even a year old and its already selling games from OTHER publishers without taking them over. Your argument is pretty moot.

Next you're going to try and tell me that games like CS that were created from Half Life mods being acquired by Valve after they got popular and soon after locked down to Steam is something totally different to EA buying a dev company and *gasp* favouring EA when it comes to distributing the game?

Selling games on your privately owned distribution system and acquiring companies aren't the same thing. Your "belief" is hardly relevant.

You're behaving as if you need to sell everything you own to EA before they'll sell your games on Origin........as far as I know, EA didn't buy Ubisoft, THQ, Capcom, Warner Brothers or any of the other publishers they have already signed up with to distribute content on Origin.

So you truly think that buying a game published by EA on an xbox, will somehow stop EA receiving any investment on your part?

Sometimes I don't know what to think of this place.

Who said anything about buying the game on xbox? My plan is to buy a used 360 for $50 and RENT Mass Effect 3 through Gamefly for 1 month for free then return it.
