“The Origin Box is our step forward in the natural evolution of gaming!” says Frank Gibeau, President, EA Labels (and a stand-in for the recently departed, though not dead, John Riccitiello). “Gamers today are a hearty bunch; always looking for more ways to spend their hard earned cash on products and services that they don’t need! As a company I’m proud to say that we at EA Games, are here to fill that need!”
And right he is, at present, the Origin Box is your only place to play the upcoming Battlefield 4!
“We’re pulling Battlefield 4 off the other consoles and the PC and making it an Origin Box exclusive! Hoo-rah!” continues Gibeau.
At launch, the Origin Box will support only Battlefield 4 though additional games may be added at a cost (at about $200 per game plus applicable fees and taxes).
“Hey, it’s Battlefield, bitch!” shouts Gibeau, “What else do you need to play!? … and don’t mention any of that Call of Duty, S***! Blasted, Activision!”
Battlefield 4’s high system requirements are the perfect match for the Origin Box. Just in case you’re wondering whether EA’s newest venture will be up to snuff with the other “big boys” of gaming, here are its mighty impressive specs:
3.6 Ghz hexa-core processor
32 GB DDR3 RAM
802.11n wireless connection (always online)
“… and all of this at an incredible low price of $2,999.99!” says Gibeau “We feel that this is the perfect balance between system power and a reasonable price! Besides, history has shown that when there is a hot new console on the market, people will want to work extra hours to afford it! It’s a win-win situation!”
Those extra hours of work will come in as a godsend as additional required proprietary parts must be purchased separately at launch such as a hard drive, HDMI output, sound processor, and a controller just to name a few.
The Origin Box will be available for sale this fall alongside the XXX-Box 365, the PleahStation 4, the Wee Ugh, the Stream Box, the PSPSP2, the 3-DDS, the nVidia Shitdd, and the Razor Ego.
