Link to the article that says BF3 will be exclusive to Origin.

That there is.... Fixed it.

I don't know why, but I commonly make that mistake. I usually catch it with spell check though.

Steam Client

Pros:
  • Easy to use, and familiar interface.
  • Auto updates for ALL of my games purchased through Steam.
  • Even if a game isn't bought through Steam, I can still use the familiar Steam in game interface to connect with people.
  • Friends list, chat rooms, and a full community of support.
  • Voice chat (which isn't too shabby since they switched to Skype).
  • Non-intrusive form of DRM. Think about Secure-ROM, GFWL, and all the other junk out there. Steam only DRM isn't all that intrusive honestly.
  • Great sales on their entire store (just have to wait for your game to go on sale).
  • Great indie games, that are only available on Steam, because of the large user base.

Cons:
  • It's still a form of DRM.
  • Valve games are ONLY on Steam (not a huge con if you've had Steam as long as I have or longer).
  • I honestly can't think of any other cons with Steam.....

Origin Client

Pros:
  • More competition for Steam. This is great, we don't want a monopoly. This will help keep prices low (assuming EA will release their games elsewhere too, and not just on Origin).
  • Nice UI, easy to navigate.

Cons:
  • Well, personally... EADM lost my Metro 2033 and BFBC2 licenses. I have them backed up locally, so no big deal. However if I lose my local backup, I lost both of those games completely. EA could care less.
  • Forcing even more DRM down our throats when we're already used to having Steam (there's 3 million+ Steam users out there).
  • Yet another login and password to remember.
  • No friends list, since all of my online friends are on Steam.
  • It's just more hassle to have to deal with yet another client.
  • Assuming the Origin Exclusive games are anything like Steam Exclusive titles, I won't be able to add the shortcuts into Steam, and enjoy my Steam in game interface.

Now honestly, I know some of you don't think this is a big deal. But think about it. If EA does this, what makes it so that Activision doesn't do the same? What about all the other big developers out there? What if it gets to the point where you have to use each developer's digital distribution software, just to download, activate, and play your games? We'd end up with 50+ digital distribution programs running, just to get access to our games. When Steam can already do all of that and more...all with one program.

I've said it once, I'll say it 1,000 times. I don't care if Origin exists. In fact, I welcome it. I do NOT support them pulling their games from other places of purchase though, and forcing Origin on us to play their games. And if that's the route they take, they won't get a penny from me. Period.

I hate DRM with a passion. This is why I don't have Vanilla GTA IV installed anymore, because GFWL screwed with me. My Steam copy of GTA IV EFLC works flawlessly after probably 20+ installs. 5 installs of vanilla GTA IV later, they want my driver's license, receipt, photo of my game disc, box, and license code...just to re-activate my game (I kid you not, that's LITERALLY what they asked of me).

Because of that fiasco, and EADM losing my Metro2033 and BFBC2, I will not buy another game unless its on Steam, period. Because with Steam....it just works.


If anybody happened to read my entire post here, congrats. And I hope you can understand my point of view. Am I being vocal about my points? Yes. But I have every right to, as a PC Gamer, and as a customer of EA, Valve, Steam, DICE, and any other developer.
I gotta ask, what do you mean by EA doesn't care? I had to redownload BFBC2 and it wasn't showing up in my account list, I just contacted EA support, showed them the email confirming my purchase, and they added it back to my EADM account.

Personally i find all these online DRM clients a PITA, i don't like steam and i don't like EADM either.
However, you're arguing that because you're so invested in steam, you will accept steam's DRM, but not accept EA's DRM

That's essentially being a hypocrite.

This whole thing is hypocrisy. If BF3 was exclusive to Steam there wouldn't be a petition.

because Origin isn't very NEW. Its like if you bought a benz that started
its engine with a battery and a new battery type was invented you'd have
to buy a new car to use it.

True. Its just about allegiance, fanfare, and the fact that they know steam will probably sell them a cheaper digital copy.

Which is why it wont be on steam lol.

The game IS available from retailers for much cheaper than the origin price though so....
