Today signaled the arrival of the first piece of DLC for Dragon Age 2 and the removal of said title from Steam. Doing a quick browse on the Steam storefront mysteriously no longer lists BioWare’s fantasy RPG sequel. Uh-oh.
Just EA pulling crap from Steam in an attempt to grab all the DLC cash without sharing with Steam. Steam has 30 million users which is like 10 times more than any other DD Store but EA insist on being dumb. You don't see Apple only Exclusively selling their iphones and ipods at the Apple store do you? HELL NO they sell them babies every where they can. This will all back fire on EA in the end....besides I'm still playing the Witcher 2 so who cares about Mass Dragon Age Effect 2: soon to be Modern Spell Warfare 3 with all the quick releases?
The Apple analogy is a bit flawed. A better analogy is, you don't see Valve selling their games on other digital distribution platforms.

Neither do EA, pretty sure it's available at retail as well.

Just when I was beginning to think that EA wasn't the most evil thing EVER, they go and do this. Can't wait for this to all blow up in their face, and then blame piracy for the less then stellar sales on pc.
Exactly!! Caboose32 is so right! why remove your product from 30 million users who all love Steam. If EA makes a game that i'm on the fence about if it was on Steam i might buy it but since it's Origins, Hell no!
well looks like I'll never buy DA2 when it's on sale for like 75% off on steam in the future, your loss EA
EA back to its old, corrupt ways
uhg crap this is certainly not going well.
When EA said it was Crytek's fault that Crysis 2 got pulled from Steam I didn't believe them and it seems I was right. Who are EA going to blame for this? They can't blame Bioware seeing as they are owned by EA, so maybe they will fess up that they are simply trying to damage Steam and promote Origin even if it destroys (or at least severely fractures) the community for all of their PC games.
I brought all The sims 3 content for 79 euro on steam! Havent played it yet tough but does this mean if I want to buy another expansion packs I wont be able to play them beacause I'm a steam user or what?
