Steam hasn't been fair so why should EA play by Steam's rules?
With Origin, EA can play by their own rules.
Look no one is saying they don't have the right or even that what they are doing is some how worse, from a business prospective, than what Valve does with Steam.
What people ARE saying is that they already have Steam, have a big library of games on Steam, have friends on Steam, have Steam load at system startup, and they don't want to forgo the convenience of a one stop digital games shop. They don't want to launch Origin and
Steam. If Origin is successful they don't want to have to launch Origin, Steam, Activision's version, Ubisoft's version, etc.
Digital distribution was supposed to simplify the management of our games library. Not make it more complicated.

You don't have to apologize to me, that doesn't hurt my feelings. The people who don't care will use it, the people who do won't. The market will, as always, determine the outcome.Edited by Mygaffer - 6/14/11 at 7:25pm
