Origin Sale Means Games Up To 70% Off

The Origin sale for August 26 and 27 is a good deal because many games are 50-70% off.

There is a massive Origin game sale going on today and tomorrow, August 26 and 27. You can get many of Electronic Arts' (EA) impressive titles for 50-70% off. Games like SimCity, Crysis, Assassin's Creed 3, Mass Effect 3, and Tomb Raider are extremely cheap right now so if you've procrastinated on buying them for some reason now is a good time to get physical copies or digital downloads.

EA is especially pushing their games with lots of expansions and downloadable content such as The Sims 3 and Battlefield 3. They are selling all these as packages and individual games. EA is promoting its digital delivery service by discounting products more if you buy them on Origin. This sale, combined with EA's new refund policy, allows easy purchasing of downloadable games. Only time will tell if Origin will win in its war against Steam, but so far this has been good for the consumer because prices are vastly reduced right now. Go here to purchase your new games and play through a whole new adventure.

    I ended up with such a headache trying to use the Origin download service last year, it was so complicated it just put me right off. Their live support was excellent though but the experience put me off using them again... unless someone has used it recently and can convince me otherwise.

    I had almost exactly the same experience with the Origin download service. I really love EA certain games, though, so I just buy the disks and ignore Origin altogether. It's lucky that this sale applied to both downloadable and physical copies.
