Because people need something to complain about on a daily basis. Especially considering it's something that is not even a big deal what-so-ever. Steam would never let Half Life, Team Fortress, or DOTA 2 ever come to Origin, why should Battlefield 3 go to Steam? People and their inability to accept change.

Origin is coming regardless if people buy BF3 or not, so I do not get the drawn out debate about this either. Besides the way thing have been going of late, it is only a matter of days before Apple sues both Valve and EA for Steam and Origin looking too much like iTunes. Then we will not be able to use either.

Sort of, its on the principle of it all too. Making sure that the steam overlay doesn't work (as I'd found in the alpha) is the main thing putting me off BF3. I would be fine with it if they weren't trying to stop steam at every turn, afterall competition is good
Origin is in beta. Steam is not. Your logic is flawed.

You DO know...Steam started out the *exact same way*, right?

No. When I buy Battlefield 3, I'm not voting for EA. I'm voting for Dice, one of the few PC-oriented major developers left in the FPS genre. I couldn't care less if EA wants me to download some ridiculously unobtrusive manager. And again, if you really think .000001% of potential customers not buying the game will make a difference in EA's practices, you're kidding yourself. Are they exploiting a great game to push software on people? Yes. Is this good? Of course not. But this is capitalism. If I need to deal with a minor inconvenience because EA wants to make an extra buck, I really don't care, it's completely in their right. BF3 will be a sell-out hit, and Origin will be initially successful because of it. It seems people who are threatening to not buy the game are doing so to "make a point" rather than actually improve anything, and to me that's just silly. We don't need EA or Dice to view the PC crowd as whiners as so many other developers do. Take what you can get.
