I've been playing, but starting up can be iffy sometimes, and the only way I managed to start playing earlier in the week was by playing at 1 in the morning.

I guess DNA2251 got the jump on me in notifying Neo about this XD

I bet the free games they offer will be all older catalog titles. I bet the best game they offer might be BF3, which has been out for ages.

So after huge public pressure from gamers, EA finally does the correct thing of offering a courtesy product? With it being EA though, I expect it to be an unbelievably shit EA release, and old game or a very cheap one.... probably something like Total Club Manager 2003.

For those who didn't buy the game because of the launch mess, can I have the deluxe edition on half price discount?

If they continue to attempt that 'always online' DRM then they really will be stupid. Especially since it locks out anyone without an internet connection from playing the game, unless they have an offline mode.

Thats too kind for EA. I think they will port FIFA 96 for the PC and give us that.

A free PC game won't be enough for some angry gamers...

Had the same thing before on other EA games. They apologized for the fact that I was unhappy with what was obviously their perfect and timeless classic of a game. And then offered me a voucher I could use to redeem another broken EA game. Which was clearly what I wanted in the first place.

I started giving away these vouchers to friends eventually. Didn't seem like they were too happy with their free games either.

This reminds me of the time I never got all that DLC I was supposed to get with Dragon Age: Origins. What a gyp!

You know what, I really wouldn't be surprised if they did that.

I bet its The Sims 3, as they can get you hooked so you buy the DLC for it.
