EA Origin users fall victim to account hijacking

EA Origin users fall victim to account hijacking

It's not a good day for a number of Origin users, as we're getting news that accounts are being hijacked by some of the more unsavory people of the world. Eurogamer first reported on the breach earlier today, but it seems these hijackings have been going on for at least a few days now. NeoGAF user Shaneus - one of the users who had their account stolen - posted a selection of Electronic Arts forum threads that show other users running into problems when trying to log in to their account.

Well this is something of a hairy situation: we're getting reports that claim some Black Ops II PC discs actually contain data for Mass Effect 2 instead of, you know, the game advertised on the front of the box. One Redditor has compiled a list of links that all lead to complaints of these Mass Effect 2 discs in disguise, and YouTube zeroiez has captured the rather confusing mix up on video for the whole world to see.

Star Wars: The Old Republic free-to-play limitations detailed

We've known for a while now that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be going free-to-play, but at first, neither BioWare nor Electronics Arts wanted to get into details when it came to restrictions for free players. Today, we might be finding out why the companies kept these details a secret for so long. BioWare has listed the free-to-play limitations on the SWTOR official site, and as it turns out, players who don't want to pay anything to play are going to have a lot of restrictions to deal with.

Borderlands 2 makes strong showing on September software chart

We already took a look at gaming hardware sales for September, so now it's time to pore over the software chart for the month.

NPD told GameSpot that Madden NFL 13 sales managed to climb 11% over Madden NFL 12 sales in its first month, which is definitely good news for Electronic Arts and its yearly football franchise.
