Just remember that as well. PC gamers are the master race, PC gamers are the mast race. Now repeat it.

Just because they say that in the EULA doesn't mean EA actually do it and I doubt EA has the capacity to "spy" on everyone who runs Origin.

Oh look EA responded:
http://www.hookedgamers.com/blogs/ch...t_spyware.html

Quote:
In recent days, some ambiguities have occurred regarding the license agreements and data collection of our Origin platform. We regret the confusion that has arisen and have informed our customers today on the state of things. Due to the recent discussion, we have summarized some of the essential facts as follows:

We have updated the End User License Agreement of Origin, in the interests of our players to create more clarity. The updated Origin licensing agreements are available here: http://store.origin.com/store/eade/d...pbPage.EULA_DE

Origin is not spyware. Neither do we use nor install spyware on the PCs of users.

Origin captures limited information that is necessary to allow users to buy, download, and play games and gaming content. The information is also needed for online connections with other players and so that extra content and software updates can be delivered directly. The data is also used to detect the occurrence of smaller software errors to ensure they are repaired immediately.

We do not have access to information such as pictures, documents or personal data, which have nothing to do with the execution of the Origin program on the system of the player, neither will they be collected by us.


All information we collect with Origin and use is to ensure that our customers have the easiest possible access to their games while enjoying the full service and the best gaming experience that EA has to offer.

EA takes the privacy of its users very seriously. We have taken every precaution to protect the personal and anonymous user data collected.

The license agreements of Origin match industry-standard privacy policies, as they are used by many other popular web services. Where necessary, we will of course work together with the relevant Government agencies to ensure that our policies are and remain legally compliant.
time to take the tin foil hat off guys!

I don't see why people are up in arms about which one is going to sell more. Play what you like. MW3 will sell more because it is a bigger title. I prefer BF games because they suit my style of play. I don't like DM or TDM. They bore the hell out of me. No objective other than to spaz out as fast as you can and rack up big kills and pretend what you are doing really matters in life. I'M PRO YO!

WRT Steam and Origin, it is just gamers being the babies they usually are. Gamers cried about Steam when it first started. Then they found they liked it. Now they are crying about Origin. I think Origin is fine. It is basically Steam with different colors and a smaller game library. It hasn't affect my game play one bit. People need to stop being babies and just blow stuff up with ur buddies.
