Default Games @ Origin only $5 until August 9.

http://store.origin.com/store/ea/html/pbpage.summersale

EA is out for blood against Steam. That's a stupidly good sale.

It includes Battlefield 2, 2142, Bad Company 2, BC2 Vietnam, and a couple of medal of honor games.

Tempting to get SimCity Societies... If it sucks I'll just have to eat a PB & J instead of fast food for a day.

EDIT: Think I might just get the box set with Sim City 4 and the expansions for both games. That way I'll have physical media and don't need to have a client installed just to play my games. If anyone does get something from Origin I'm curious if they will force you to update your client before you can play. That is something I despise about downloadable games.

I'll pass even though I'd like to try Spore. I refuse to use another digital distribution service. I will buy retail BF3 as well.

i read you will still need to run Origen, even for a physical copy of BF3. sad i know ... i guess we best get used to using origen if we want to play any EA games in the future.

No, where the hell do you people get this crap? Its like everyone around here reads the headlines of conspiracy theories and takes them for fact. Until dice says otherwise you don't need origin unless you bought the digital download version from ea, and then you likely won't have to run origin again. Please no more rumor spreading unless you post a source link. Sorry, pet peeve

Haha I know I mean no offense I just got tired of squashing rumors in the bf3 thread. There just seems to be a ton of misinformation around bf3 and the origin steam fiasco
