    The biggest issues I have with origin fall in the fine print.

    By installing it, they get to periodically scan your computer for any software that they feel violates their terms of use. If they find it, you're subject to having your account deactivated.

    Also, they reserve the right to force you to re-purchase a game as early as six months after your initial purchase. Full price, paid twice (Or More) for one game seems excessive and wrong. I refuse to buy rentware from anyone, ever.

    Hey Foxxie I wondered where you been hiding Hope your alright mate.

    They only Monitor EA products.

    @Alias117

    Yeah I have been seeing the tears and its annoying me. Just cause there not getting it for free and just cause it was a prothean. sighs.

    You mean this?

    EA reserves the right to monitor communications on the Application and disclose any information EA deems necessary to (i) ensure your compliance with this License; (ii) satisfy any applicable law, regulation or legal process; (iii) protect the rights, property and interests of EA, its employees or the public. EA also reserves the right to edit, refuse to transfer and/or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in EA’s sole discretion.

    This fine print reads that it is restricted only to the Origins program and what it accesses for its native purpose (download and run games). As long as Origins is not running with superuser rights, it cannot access privileged folders such as Program Files (the only exception being its own installation folder) or the Windows folder. If you're paranoid you can just create a whole new Windows account and make it a standard user forcing Origins unable to read your User folder as well. If EA used it to monitor data that is not calling Origin's functions nor is being instantiated by Origins, it is grounds for EA to be sued by the consumer.

    Your bitterness, I will dispel

    That only pops up when at the end of the download then goes away additionally it will remain in your downloads sub tab of the library for 4 hours then it disapears from there as well. I have been using steam since 2006 I am aware of this.

    Also Servius's statement about Origins DLP (DownLoad Provider) being better is true for me in Kansas. I average three times the download speed then I do from any steam host.

    What is important is that steam has some real competition so hopefully they will provide more awesome and less suck.

    My downloads notification stays at the bottom until I click on them to check it out. The only time they disappear is if I close/restart Steam completely. It also says at the bottom "# item(s) downloading" along with the progress of the download. So using Steam since 2006 apparently doesn't mean much.

    Your also in the UK, so perhaps the software functions differently there. I do know that by default steam does not. Thanks for resulting to personal insults though.

    I have Steam and Origin. Origin for games I can not get on Steam now or Was not on steam before!

    Origin has never crashed on my system or froze. Customer Service I have to say was really fast. Pretty much 5 hours to 12 hours for an initial reply. Due to time zone's. Downloading from them is much faster for me. I do not see it as a beta. Even tho I only have 4 games on it The Sims 3, GodFather 2, BF3 and ME3 Demo.

    Steam I have most of my games on. Has crashed about ten times Has frozen on me more. But I still use it why cause it has my games on it. Customer service been up to a week before I even got an initial reply and downloading is poor :s even from the closest point and there is no problems with my line. Also there is times when I could not download any game I wanted to install on my system. But I still use it why cause my games are on it.

    Oh and I wont buy TOR unless I can get on a private server! No way am I being milked £100 a year to play a game I bought for £40 - £60.

    regarding the costing you realise a private server (which is rarely that private tbh) costs as much/more than a yearly subscription on most games.

    but yeha i do agree mmo subscriptions are a pain these days, why i like guild wars you buy the game its yours outright no more fees, alot of smart mmo's are going to free to play atm also realising better money in micro sales with in game bonus items (normally non balance things like armor or weapon skins).

    wow is even slowly getting in on the free to play action but being blizzard some idiot will mess it up and can it like they did with canning lost vikings 3 to make warcraft all thoose many years ago.

    Steam works the same way wherever you live or use it.

    Also there were no personal insults in my post at all. You said you had used Steam since 2006 as a statement that you were right and I was wrong. I pointed out the statement meant nothing. No need to take criticism personally.
