With the rise of Origin and Battlefield 3, it begs the question, will Steam be obsolete in a matter of years?
Nice write up. Steam will eventually fade away. Why pay some 40% to steam when developers can invest that money in their own system at a fraction of that cost. Saying that, Origin kinda sucks.
even with Orgins scrambling to compete with Steam, Steam has already pushed forward and now offers so many new features that Origins and everybody else can not compete. Steam is already offering F2P games thus jamming more people unto their glorious servers. Steam has over 30 million users and peaks at 4 million online gamers at any moment. That's more than anybody on any platform except maybe Blizzard and it's Battle.net.
