I only have one game on my EA Downloader, and it was a free copy of Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box. I don't even play it...

You should play it. Burnout Paradise is awesome. :D

hmm...looks like EA took battlefield 3 LE off the list - that is just terrible business practice on their behalf.

Why list it in the first place if only to sneakily take it down? Bait and switch no doubt.

Get the customers waiting up until midnight to order the game, find it isn't offered, and hope they get suckered in to the $59.99 price tag or even purchase one of their other "deals" like MOA (which for MP is about as worthless as an underwater toaster).

Terrible EA!! Just Terrible.

Battlefield 3 is no longer on the EA site list. OP should probably be updated to take that out to cut down on confusion.


Sort of expected this, sounded like too good of a deal. Still I'll keep an eye on it.

FIFA 11 for 50% next weekend is a nice though. I wish EA had more of their sports titles on PC. I've got some 360 controllers hooked up to my computer and FIFA and NBA 2K11 play great on it.

Bummed that BF3 got taken down, but I suppose my wallet is plenty thankful.

I hope EA comes through and honors bf3 anyway...it would be a real dick move for them not to.

EA sent me a (mildy obnoxious) email asking me to take BF3 off the list. It was clearly listed in their email, so it was their error.

To each his own I suppose. But I think you will find yourself in the minority on that one.

Anyway back on topic: a bit bummed they removed BF3 from the list but it isn't that surprising.

...aaaaaand EA squeezes out some more free advertising both for BF3, and their sale, and only at the expense of their client base.

Well played EA, well played. Admirable.

I loved the Burnout series - LURVED IT - until "Burnout Hell: 8 Finish Lines To Bore You" came and took a steaming dump on everything. Despised it and wonder what's wrong with the people who like it. That's not to say I didn't grab the free Ultimate Box deal back at Christmas, but that was more out of spite than anything.

Am I going to run into "activation limit" troubles if I buy Mass Effect from the EA Store? Help would be appreciated!

Wondering the same thing myself. The sales should overlap over the weekend.

They did away with this years ago. I had thought the same recently though.

I actually held out on buying in hopes of an additional discount on BC2 Vietnam... but now they've actually raised the price.

BS indeed, especially when the banner (prior to this sale) says that all BFBC2 titles are 50% off until April 10th.

Very, very BS. I'm just not gonna buy it altogether now.

Why did you list The Orange Box and HL2; I'm not seeing it discounted on the site. Did EA make more than a few mistakes on the list?

Here I figured they'd give deep discounts on BF3 as a way to push their own digital delivery service. Instead, they pissed off any CAGs paying attention (in multiple ways: Vietnam, Orange Box, etc).

I wonder if anyone is going to bother ordering something, or just wait for a steam sale on the items instead.

(golf clap)

These prices are off the regular price, not the current price, right? So if I am interested in Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate, it's going to end up being roughly the same as it is now?

in case you were wondering how many people are actively playing battlefield 2 --> http://www.xfire.com.../Battlefield_2/

8,000 on average.

since playing BF p4f, i was thinking about getting the digital version so i don't have to install off CDs and then patch, on Vista (yuck!)

Just wondering...but do you guys think we should all email EA with the same complaint about them removing BF3 from the list? Even though it was included in the email as being 40% off, then they quietly remove it the day before the sale.

This strikes me as an obvious effort to pound advertisement for BF3 even more (free of course) and thus also really makes me not even want to buy it at all. Had they never listed it, I probably would have ended up paying full price. But because they listed it, then removed it, now I'm pissed at unethical business practice.

Would it even make a difference if we all emailed them?8-)

I succumbed to the sale and bought Mass Effect, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and the expansion Vietnam. There goes my wallet.

No, they don't.

I just figured out today though that you can add a shortcut in your steam game list to launch it even if it isn't a steam game.
