Look at all the DLC/Expansion Packs they put out for Dragon Age: Origins. The difference in price, at the moment, between Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition is $20. That's almost twice the price of the vanilla.

I just wonder how many people are really that motivated to buy the game from EA for the little DLC that is out at the moment. Overall, Steam has a MUCH stronger userbase than EA Downloader, and I know quite a few people who will no longer buy games from anywhere except Steam. It's easy to see why.
However, if the DLC was included in the Steam version of the game, I would probably be more likely to pick up the game at its release, rather than waiting for the GOTY edition.

I also hate EA, though, so don't take my opinion too seriously
Poor customer service really kills them.

This is what I am doing. I am a huge BioWare fan, but I hate the fact that everyone except people that wanted to use Steam got the SE edition. Because of that I will not buy the game on release, EA can go screw themselves.

I think EA realizes that the digital revolution does not just mean cutting out retailers, it might mean cutting out any middlemen at all, which would mean they make an extra 30%.

Of course I don't see them every competing with services like Steam so they'll still have to play ball, especially because no one is willing to give up their Steam account after investing so much money in them.
