Can you have Steam, Origin and uPlay running on a same PC?

Would it cause any conflicts?

I've had origin and steam running at the same times with no problems, doubt throwing uplay into the mix is going to make much difference.

Nah, they purposefully made it so you can only run 1 at a time.

Yeah, your PC will explode.....or it'll work perfectly normal......are you willing to take that chance?

You can. Why would it cause conflicts? I have Steam and Origin up all the time. I only have one Uplay game and I don't have it up at the moment, but I did back when I was playing Far Cry 3.

No. Steam, the biggest of the 3, will eat the other 2.

The only problem I could see is if you had a really outdated CPU or something like 2gb of RAM, which might strain the system.

But no, any modern PC can run those three simultaneously just fine.

When I have all three running Steam and Origin are usually fighting each other while uPlay sits in the corner drooling on it's finger paintings.
Insert generic offensive/slightly racist/holier than thou/fanboy/douchebag/elitist comment here.

There may be conflicts with overlays. I primarily like my steam overlay so I disable origin's overlay when I play an origin game and I can just press shift+tab to bring up steam.
