I hope that this turns out to be true. So far, it hasn't; but it's way too soon to draw a definitive conclusion.

During Steam's summer sale, Sims 3 and all of the expansions could be had for 66% off, with no Securom DRM. Most of Origin's Sims 3 downloads have Securom, and haven't been on sale for more than 25% off yet.

Like I said, I hope that Origin chooses to compete with Steam. So far, though, that new fruit store hasn't had much beyond wax apples and mushy bananas.

I pre-ordered on Origin without a fuss, I even got Dead Space 2 for free for it 0 complaints here. I already had DA2 and ME2 on it anyway.
You will have to forgive me, I have been on several other forums where the general attitude is that Steam is the only online distributor and that there is nowhere else now to buy EA games except Origin. I would have to assume that EAs policies concerning publishers are going to mimic any other online store as there is no shortage of alternative places to purchase games.

Right now I place Origin on the same plane as GWFL. Neither will ever be a real contender to Steam, but their existence will encourage continued improvement to Steam.

It's called icons people. That is how you "keep all of your games in one place". These Steam fanboys are getting just as bad as Apple fanboys. It's OK to like a company but it's not OK to be completely retarded.

Quite useful for someone who has managed to populate their Origin friends list and can/will use the Origin chat overlay to chat with friends.

If neither you or any of your friends (that you actually play with and not the hundreds of "facebook" friends you may or may not have) cant be bothered to add each other on Origin, then expect Origins features to be useless to you.

I on the other hand, shall be making full use of it.
It's pretty darn useless when I talk on skype with my friends while gaming and have a steam friends list. Origin is just a wannabe steam.

Don't you mean EA: Download Manager? That has been around since 2007 iirc.

I love the person who says "omg u can have a short cut or add a non steam game" last time I checked when I use my steam back up it doesn't back up my short cut
Games or non steam
Games. Just today I backed up 12 games on steam reformatted and than had all my games updated ready to play with in 30 minutes. You can't beat that.

Origin is great, some nice sales going on, but most of us just prefer steam.

I'm waiting until the last minute before I preorder, in the hopes that the game will become available on Steam.
