Hi. I'm not interested in Origin Access, and I just wanted to explain why.
My budget is tight, so a monthly access fee is outside of my budget. I prefer to watch for sales on digital distribution platforms. I passed up the recent 40% sale because the games I wanted were about ten dollars out of my price range.
When they went ten dollars below my price range, in the new sale, I was all over that, but still had some difficulties making the purchase, due to the lack of a shopping cart option. Support was able to walk me through the purchase, but it did trigger 3 separate transactions, which my bank alerted on immediately.
They were nice, but required that I verify the transaction, which I did. If I had a cart option, everything would have been one transaction, and probably wouldn't have alerted my bank.
This doesn't really build confidence in EA or Origin on my part, as a customer. My friends even razzed me about it, saying I should have skipped the purchase entirely.
Once I did make the purchase, the game worked just fine, and I have no complaints there.
But I am not interested in Origin Access. At all.
