(Alternative title: "No really, just fuck you, EA")
First of all I have to admit that I pre-ordered Battlefield 3.
I canceled it after playing the open beta of BF3 and the big disappointment it was.
After hearing that it's single player is about 3 hours of (maybe even intensive) gameplay and a multiplayer full of bugs, lags and missing big innovative changes to the past 2341089 Battlefield titles, I decided to not buy it at all and instead wait for Moden Samefare 3, which at least never disappointed me in atmospheric and longer singleplayer.
Now I've heard about some unbelievable facts about the TOS from EA's Steam-clone "Origin".
Check this quotation from the TOS you agree after spending 60€ on the described piece of scum and opening it, which means you can't even get your money back if you decline the TOS.
2. Consent to Collection and Use of Data.
Basically Origin is a spyware tool which collects all data it wants to know about, even if its far beyond gaming and hardware.
So in other words: You're spreading your legs for EA's giant run-up taking Spywaredick and kindly ask it to do whatever it wants to do with you.
Makes it way easier for me to not buy yet again another EA game.
No problemo, more money for Modern Warefare 3, Uncharted 3, Skyrim :)))
