It's really a shame this leech wants to eat from the same plate as valve/steam....

No matter how you slice it, ea is trying to ride the hard work valve put into digital distribution.

It's like how china blatantly rips off anything that makes a buck. Anything other than battlefield is still going to be bought on steam. Valve had to earn their fanboys you know. A lot of them saved a small fortune buying up a vast library of games.

Ea will offer the same sales but that's only temporarily. They won't hesitate to try and nickel and dime you for all your worth

Origin isn't bad and with the recent 60% off, I am starting to like Origins. And if Origins is going to provide competitor titles. This could really open up PC gaming and make it better for all of us.

See, I knew this would happen. Steam is always gonna be the best for deals, though.

How is this going to work? Saints Row The Third requires Steam to play.

if you buy SR from Origin it will require Origin

But if you buy it from a store it will still require steam. Same as if you purchased it at Direct2Drive, Gamersgate or other digital retailers.

oh and btw, origin is so lame and annoying that only 60 percent of the time am i able to launch bf3 correctly. Origin + Battlelog = EPIC FAILURE
Game + Steamworks = EPIC WIN
oh and lets not forget those rare down syndrome ppl that think GFWL is better than both origin and steamworks.
