Looks like this applies to all platforms. Not the greatest of prices, but there are a few good deals. Unfortunately it doesn't apply to newer titles. You can also get Free standard shipping through Mar. 31st with orders $39.99 or more. Just a few games to mention:

PS3/360 Alice: Madness Returns $14.99
PS3/360 Shadows of the Damned $14.99
50% off Battlefield
50% off Batman Arkham City
and many many more!

Not sure how they can claim this is "storewide". They excluded most of the new releases like SSX, Mass Effect 3, etc...and their Vita Fifa game.

If only Amalur was part of the sale, I'd buy that plus one other game.

I would buy Battlefield if I knew more people who jammed it. Seems like a deal.

NOOOO.

Thanks OP - there goes my wallet. Might bite on battlefield 3 for pc for the 64-player multiplayer mode. But also tempted to get it for ps3 as well. So many other games to consider too. :cry:

Agreed! I figure I'd still post it though since you can get some decent deals on older titles.

Picked up Battlefield 2 Complete Collection for $10.
As such a huge fan of Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 I deserve to give 2 a try. Also semi-excited to see the Karkand maps in BF3 in their original form.

Kinda want gotham city imposters for $8 but I'd rather have it on steam, they say the deal is going through the 19th so we'll see if they pricematch...though I can't really trust origin anymore after the free bf3 with me3 deal that died a quick death.

Mistake. Click on it and it says special promo price of $7.49. So basically $37.49 for BF3 PC + tax(?).

Not sure if I should get it at that price. The Origin horror stories and the fact I own the Ps3 version make me think I shouldn't.

I tried to buy FIFA 12 (PC Download) and the main page says $14.99. When I click the link to add it to my basket it says $14.99, when I go to checkout the total is $19.99... sod that.

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!

Ok, I bought the Back to Karkand map pack, been wanting to and now is better than ever I guess. Too bad SSX isn't part of this deal.
just wondering, if I bought it on the EA store is there actually anything to download or was the Back to Karkand pack part of an update and I bought an unlock code.
EA is HORRIBLE at communicating stuff like this to its customers. This is for the PC.

Also Gotham City Imposters is $7.99 which is tempting because it is an extremely solid shooter but I don't know how good the legs are on it.
Downloadable multiplayer games are almost always doomed from day one.

Edit: Dead Rising 2: Off the Record PC is $14.99. Probably the best edition of the game on the best platform.
Really, I've heard that load times are better on the PC.

I bit on 3 games. Crysis 2 ($14.99), Shadows of the Damned ($14.99), and Mass Effect 2 ($9.99) all for PS3. Total came to $43.03 with tax and free shipping.

Not bad at all. Thanks OP! :)

It's 15 bucks and it was originally 60 and sold like ass because EA didn't know how to market it. If you like Evil Dead 2 or Resident Evil 4 then quit being a jerk and just buy the damn game.

When you add to cart it's the correct price of $7.50. I'm hoping for tomorrow's Midweek Madness to be a price match. I'd rather have it on Steam, but I'm going to buy it on Origin tomorrow if it doesn't get price matched.
