11 million users are currently using Origin, and the service generated $150 million in 10 months.
Why, why are people using Origin, what reason is there other than Battlefield 3 for PC?
That number is the bigest fucking lie in the industry.Every EA game for the past 4-5 years has forced you to sign up for an EA account to validate DLC content and get your email address so they can spam you.Also 150 million in revenue for 10 months may sound like alot but that includes SWG BF3 ME3 and all the other crap.I hope dead space 3 is the last in the series so i can right EA off for dead.
The best analogy i could come up with is the mass effect 3 is a BMW that bursts into flames after you hit 50 thousands miles.Anyone that finds this to be a bad thing is immediately attacked for acting entitled and should be thankful for what they got before the explosion.While i would love to see a re-right of the ending i wont kid my self thinking EA will spend money to protect the bioware brand when there all to busy destroying it with quick money grabs like dragons age 2 and mass effect 3.
Im sure those origin numbers are baked to include any PC or console that has ever had to sign up for a EA account to play one of there online games.Also how many of those were just to play the BF3 beta?
