If you like Origin, then stay with Origin. I will use Steam.

Not ENTIRELY true. I'd much rather NOT have origin with its greater-than-retail prices "competing" with steam. all it's doing is making me use 2 launch platforms instead of 1, and giving steam an excuse to raise prices.

Sorry for the little rant .. but hey .. Fail BF3 release at least ? lol
Man, I am terrified for the future of Bioware. Major developers have left and EA has its money-grubbing paws all over their management just like Activision with Guitar Hero and CoD. After the travesty that was Dragon Age 2, I don't know if I'll be able to buy another Bioware game again. I'll wait on reviews, but I just don't think they'll be up to par.

And lol@BF3. I didn't enjoy BF:BC2 that much, so I wasn't excited about BF3's releases. After the millions of threads hyping BF3, it makes the pessimist inside of me happy.

*sigh*
Except in this case you don't have to go out and buy a second console. just open origin instead of steam.

Competition is good. Hopefully steam can start pushing out the sales harder.

well, considering steam is what, 6-7 years old, and origin is well, 4 months old, to say that origin is regression is to say you'll never buy a DVD and stick to VHS until there are as many DVDs and VHS tapes.

who would have thought, that HHMMMMM, you could use BOTH? and NOT complain about it? seriously? whos computer these days CANT run both steam and origin at the same time? why is it so difficult to get the games on origin on origin, and get the games on steam, on steam. i really CANNOT understand what the problem is.

who has LESS than 4 gb of ram, much less, less than 8gb of ram. put it in autostart and leave it run in the background, that 50-100mb of memory lost surely will never be noticeable.

Honestly if EA can sort out the problems with Origin and can show good progress with good reason they could be a great competitor

I know some like origin and other want to stick with steam and that's fine
So far I haven't really enjoyed my origin experience but It needs to grow to see what can be done with it, it is lighter than steam but depending on your rig it won't really matter.

So long EA doesn't do anything stupid it won't burn and die but there marketing team has derped hard sometimes cough*Dante's inferno*cough

But only time will dictate if it burns or grows...so we will have to wait and see
maybe EA will see the positives of steam and take some good steps of advancement from what they have done, and Valve can do the same with Origin

How did someone like you with that outlook on things even get into this forum?

2 platforms running at the same time is redundant and inefficient in every possible way. Just because the toll it takes on your system isn't catastrophic, doesn't mean we should do it. Do the words "the pursuit of performance" ring a bell? You don't achieve peak performance by letting inefficiency slide.

And then you compare Steam to VHS and Origin to DVD, and ask why we cant just use both and be happy.. LOL! Last I heard, DVD was a SUPERIOR platform for movies, not simply a newer but weaker alternative for twice the price. Origin offers only a small fraction of what if offered on Steam, and not only in terms of how many games, but also in terms of features and reliability.

And for your information, origin is nothing new. EA has been in the digital distribution business longer than valve has. The only reason you don't know that is because all their previous platforms have been absolutely terrible, and didn't offer any exclusive titles. The only reason anyone has even heard of Origin is because EA is pushing it with exclusive, highly anticipated titles.

Before you start acting all high and mighty on us, how about you obtain an understanding of the matter at hand first? You "really CANNOT understand what the problem is"? Well how about you inform yourself before posting?
