EA to run Origin promotions over the holidays
Posted: 23.12.2011 12:39 by Comments: 3
Valve isnít the only ones running a sale this year - EA have announced a couple of promotions that will run over the holidays on their own online store/portal - Origin.

First up - for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day only (24th and 25th of December, just FYI), you'll be able to pick up Battlefield 3 at 50% off. Unless you're German, then you only get 33% off since Santa said you'd all been bad eggs this year. This promotion for EU territories only.

Lastly, from the 27th of December right through till January 8th, if you buy two or more of any selected titles you get 50% off the entire transaction. Selected titles include: Battlefield 3, FIFA 12, FIFA Manager 12, NFS The Run, Sims 3 Pets, Sims 3, Sims 3 Ambitions, Sims 3 Generations, Mass Effect 2 Digital Deluxe, Alice Madness Returns and Crysis 2.

Again, another EU only promotion, although if you live in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, then the offer doesn't apply with Battlefield 3 because... well... we don't know. I guess Santa's got beef with you too this year.

Lol, EA doesn't like Germans for complainig about Origin too much, great move this is guaranteed to make it more popular there :).

Scandinavias are assholes too, they already have Santa to give them gifts so F.U. no promotions for you at all.

How exactly is this supposed to compete with 75% promotions on hundreds of titles on Steam?

Well I picked up "FIFA Manager 12", with a 20% discount on top of the 50% already on offer and by purchasing on the 22nd I received the Premier Live account for the Euro League free (at least I should have - waiting for my ticket to be answered over that one, grrrr).
