the Uplay point system is actually a great system for redeeming prizes. I came here thinking Origin points would be similar, too bad about that.
i find it hilarious that the original post about these stupid ORIGIN POINTS was on 07-22-2014 and even still OVER TWO YEARS LATER (10/21/16) its still not answered.... freakin ridiculous.
Yeah, they kind of just let any word of it die out... I don't think we'll see anything where points would be converted into real world money, why would they implement something that can negatively influence their revenue stream? However, it would be great if it is used as an in-game currency that stretches over all the games that are hosted on Origin and has some in-game purchases, like battle packs in BF and various in-game purcases.
With the launch of the new Origin interface, I think we might be closer to finding out if points will become relevant anytime soon.
EA why are you giving us those Origin points anyway? If you don't want US to do anything with it just stop spreading it all over the place... Simple... And no one would ask you those stupid questions....
Or remove pointless points all-together. Just show how much money we have spent on EA games so we can show how much disposable income that we have in a concise manner. Another idea; do away with Origin altogether.

Here are the current facts relating to Origin Points:
Thanks for the info. Now do you have some new information, apart from the same info you gave 2 years ago? Because, that is literally the same answer, word for word, that you gave 2 years ago! And yes, I have read the entire thread.
If EA would just admit that they have no plans for Origin Points at the moment, that would be a million times better, than to keep saying it is "in development"
Wow you might wanna check again .... He hasn't said anything on this post yet. When you go to the first page it still shows top answer which is his from just recently. Check the date next time.
