A friend of mine just bought an xbox 360 with fifa 13 and is new to gaming. He was wondering why he was having trouble getting an online game. I told him he needs to create an EA account. Which takes me back to when i bought burnout paradise at launch. Then they brought in this ea account crap and after that i could not even play single player if i was connected xbox live. Problem syncing acc ounts

I've never had a problem with it. I've had an EA account since the days of Battlefield 2 and synced it up with my PSN account when Bad Company launched.

I was just about to respond until i saw this comment, exactly the same situation as me.

Some people dont like it because of some sort of spyware going on with the Origin program. I dont care as i have nothing to hide, it cant effect me in any way at all. The only thing i like to keep secret is my bank password, obviously.

I think its just because its something new, some people dont like change, they are having to learn or adjust to something new.
I remember the days when steam started up, some people hated it because it would drive away business from shops and would kill the xfire messenger, both of which is happening.
Time and time again, as with everything in life, something new comes out it never pleases most or everyone.
