According to the two customer service reps I talked to, they don't give the 25% off birthday codes anymore. I'm not sure if I should believe.


I just got one last month on February 20.

Yep, they apparently still give out birthday codes to certain people, so don't know why Origin would tell people that.

What a terrible site.

I'm happy that they're selling me four good-to-great games for like $55 but heaven forbid I want to find out why one of the four hasn't shipped yet.

Protip - Look at the features that other retail sites include on their websites and model your own after them.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I thought only the LE version of Dead Space 2 PS3 had Extraction, but maybe all PS3 copies do now?

ME2 PS3 Cerberus Network DLC code was still good as of last week.

If I'm not mistaken all ps3 copies are limited edition. There are no "standard" editions for ps3.

Oh, shoot, I'll have to check that out. Using credit + 25% discount will make me pull triggers on SO MANY THINGS.

Only 1 of the two games I ordered has shipped - or at least that's what their e-mail with a tracking number in a format I have never seen before says (of course the e-mail fails to mention how my order is being shipped).

Same. The 3 of 4 package that I'm getting starts with a 1Z which is standard for most if not all UPS shipping. The last one (ME2 on 360) is a mystery at the moment. Oh well, I gripe now but once everything's here, it will have been well worth the minor headache. First world problems and all that.

Is BF3 worth it on the PS3 at that price? I'm looking to get a decent FPS, but all I hear is complaining about the input lag. I'd prefer to get it on the PS3 because I'm not playing much XBL these days.

I don't want to start a flamewar but IMO get it on the PC or don't bother.

I had it on Xbox 360 and it is unbelievable how much more beautiful this game is on the PC. On the 360 it was unremarkable and I bet the PS3 is the same.

I'm on the fence with bf3. I'm no fanboy but have enjoyed cod for years. Never was one of those people where one rules the other sucks. That being said worth it? I don't have any origin buddies.

The site isnt very intuitive for current orders. You have to enter ”profile” after the .com/ part of the URL which allows you to log in and check order history.

lol, I dunno. It'd be the only game I'd have on origin and I don't play enough EA Games to open an account for it. That and most of the time games go on sale on one site, they end up being on sale on another.

I used to not understand people that were steam or bust... until Direct2Drive was sold to Gamefly. I purchased 30 games from D2D from 2007-2011 and other than the ones I have moved to steam or origin (about 10 of them) I cannot play my games now and have not been able to for over a month now. I cannot DL them from gamefly. When I try to get my activation codes it tells me "this game is not tied to this account" and so forth.

What a joke man. This has always been my biggest fear of buying digital content. Now I am living it.

So, I am pretty much amazon, origin or steam now. Those three companies are huge and it is unlikely they will ever go anywhere.

First time ordering from Origin, and my god are they slow to ship. Ordered ME2, Dante's Inferno, Shift 2, and Skate 3 for PS3. One order, two separate shipments, (for whatever reason) both UPS 2nd day air.

Took them almost 3 days to process my shipment. I'm just happy I didn't pay for shipping. Not to bitch too much, this was a pretty awesome deal after all. I was just hoping to play these games this weekend.

BTW, first post. Long time lurker, hello CAG!

I'm getting the same thing here. Just because of this, I'd jump on the deal, but I wasn't planning on buying Mass Effect 3, and I find it stupid that they're listing the price of Arkham City at $49.99 when they discount it to $10. It makes you think you're saving $40 rather than $15.

Will pay $15 through Paypal for a birthday code from EA, just let me know. They do stack with the sale, but they are apparently given out sparingly.

http://www.overclock...on-guide-25-off

I followed this handy little guide and just got a code today. I made my bday two days away to be safe. If they're being selective, sorry. If you make a new account today, you will still have time to get a code before this sale runs out. Just got Shadows of the Damned, been waiting forever for a drop. Thanks op!
