Didn't want it anyway, but Nope.avi

Battlefield 3 didnít come out on Steam and was an Origin exclusive but the sales did not suffer due to that. Origin has been growing rapidly and looks like a worthy competitor to Steam.

I don't even

Aren't all new EA games Origin-only?

Since I will be using origin for BF3 and BF4 anyway, I no longer care.

Honestly, games being released on one download service exclusively is annoying, but I won't try to boycott EA and Origin, not when Steam is doing the same to both their own games and even popular 3rd party games like Skyrim. Ideally they would all just be released on all platforms and let the consumer decide where to buy and what application to use, but unfortunately we are moving further away from that each year. It is a development within the industry rather than just EA or Origin.

No, ideally everything would be released on Steam only period.

10 years from now every publisher will have their own overlay which is required to download and play their games.

Why? Because people are stupid and they think of the most stupid inconvenient things they can just to make an extra .50.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

It's pretty much happening right now... Origins, GFWL (thankfully leaving), Steam, UPlay... It doesn't bother me just yet but having accounts and achievements all over the place does.

Actually the most ideal thing would be no 3rd party software and no drm at all.
