This truely shows how greedy EA is. Hey, we're already the leader in something so that means we should be the leader in other things! Their entire attitude will hopefully be the death of them. Valve deserves this title far more than EA ever will.
If Origins actually beat Steam I could see EA adding some "subscription" to it that allows people to purchase games earlier or "no ads", just to get more money for their greedy-selfs. It's all they do, add fees to everything they possibly can. Release a game, profit a ton, then release 10 mini-DLCs that all the fanboys will buy that add a whole 2 hours of gameplay content for half of the game's original price.
EA and Activision will destroy the gaming market on PCs. All EA is doing is trying to split up the PC gaming market, the only games people will buy on Origins is the exclusive ones. The fact they make them exclusives just shows how desperate and low-ball they really are. Making them exclusive is NOT going to make people switch to Origins, it's just going to make people hate it more. All they do is think about money, and profits and never once consider what the fans actually like/want.Edited by Murlocke - 6/16/11 at 1:55pm
