EA Post Picture of a Cup that is Steaming

EA's got a steamy teaser on its Twitter account, lending credence to the recent rumors that Electronic Arts is preparing to move back onto Valve's Steam platform.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well I don’t think anyone is using origin anymore

Lol! And people calling doom and gloom for gaming because of services. Those people believe that every major publisher will have their own gaming service. That´s why Microsoft is investing so much on Game Pass!

Once you become the leader, everybody will follow you. EA, Bethesda, Ubi, Blizzard...etc

When you aren't liked as much and you have a service like EA Origins which features your big games along with their average to bad reception, was it worth moving from Steam.

There shouldn't be so many platforms anyway. They should all just get together, EA, Ubisoft, Rockstar, Bethesda etc to try and make Valve make Steam better.

GOG is the best answer we have right now. Their launcher, Galaxy 2.0, is about as close as we are ever going to get to a unified platform. You can sync your Steam, Epic, Uplay, Origin (and more) accounts to it. That means all of our games, achievements, friends, game time etc can be viewed from one place. You still need to have the other launchers on your pc, but it's better to have something like this than what we currently have. You can even sync Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo games to it.

It's currently in closed beta.

Does GOGs new launcher still need to run the other launchers when you play their games?

SegaGamer361d ago (Edited 361d ago )


Yes, but from what I have seen, you won't notice them running. There is also plans to include a setting to close the launcher when you quit a game. So if you are playing a game that is tied to Steam and you exit that game, Steam will also close down.

I always preferred GOG myself, but hardly anyone else uses it and the selection of games is limited compared to Steam's library. I really wish GOG had become the dominant service.

Too bad their games aren't really worth it anymore. I care more for the old catalog.

They can't compete with Steam so they came running back. Tough luck EA.

Their games sold fine on their store. They left Steam so they wouldn't have to lose the revenue from the Steam cut of the sale. If they are coming back, they probably negotiated with Steam to have them take less of a cut...possibly because Epic was offering them something. Also they may not be closing up their own store, just expanding to others.

Of course, this could not be happening at all, so there is that.
