Yes there is. Great distinction.

Except it's not hard to see that that's what they're saying here. Maybe they genuinely are talking more about intereconnecting different platforms of the same/similar title. Or maybe they're also planning to have more always-on DRM thumb.gif This is EA, champions of SecuROM activation limits.

The sad part about your post is that you and pretty much everyone else in the thread are those who cannot "read between the lines".

The author speaks of EA to quote him perfectly:
Quote:
Electronic Arts’ policy of requiring its users to always be online when playing their games is going to continue but with a twist, confirmed Keith Ramsdale, the general manager of EA Northern Europe.

This new version of the always online requirement will feature the implementation of “online universes,” which will emphasize an always-online connection to resources on EA’s servers.

Exactly what always online DRM is it they are expanding on, given that EA don't actually have an always online DRM policy?

This guy literally wrote a few paragraphs of blatant lies about EAs DRM, and we have but two people in this thread who actually realised it.

Everyone else is getting upset about an always on DRM that doesn't even exist....EA added offline mode to Origin recently.....why would they do that if they have or want to have a form of DRM that requires permanent connection to play their games?

Ubisoft got KILLED by the entire internet for attempting always on DRM, yet apparently EA has had always online DRM this WHOLE time and noone noticed till this amateur blogger wrote an article about them apparently expanding on it? For real?

Are people REALLY this dense and easily mislead?

Is this the same crowd of people who dare call anyone who doesn't prefer Android iSheep?

Given that I literally just proved you wrong via video footage when you said Origin didn't allow you to play games offline literally a page or so ago, how are you still defending someone who says that EA have an always online DRM policy?


Sure, read between the lines all you want, but dont stop that from enabling you to read altogether for goodness sake........

LOL.

I personally don't care about having to be online to play games since I will never be without an internet connection (barring some disaster). I would, however, be livid if I didn't have internet and couldn't play SP games because of it. As far as I can tell, you have to have an internet connection to even play BF3's SP campaign which makes no sense to me...

Or maybe you could do as others have said, "read between the lines" and come to the conclusion that EA adding offline mode to Origin, which also cuts out the need for Battlelog when launching BF3s single player, is actually their way of telling you they want you to be online at all times to play their games.

Adding offline mode + streamlining the single player launching = Always online DRM incoming!!!!

It's only logical!!

EA should add a MP launch without BL if they can manage to add offline support for SP campaigns without BL. DO IT EA/DICE/MAGIC FAIRIES.

The article isn't clear about their DRM policy.
I think the author is drawing a conclusion of a feature that will connect devices, not add always on DRM.

Not a good article.

This proves how many people hate EA because everyone else does.
See headline and spew hate.
