Origin has put my download speeds are 15MB/s in the past, despite only having about a 60Mbps connection on a good day. My best speeds on Steam have been about 7MB/s. --- Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback http://www.youtube.com/sircaballero
My Origin has always DL'd at about 1.2 MB/s, while Steam only at 800~ KB/s. Only reason I use Steam more is because it has a much lower chance of going the way of GFWL and because it has better and more sales for games. However, if I see a game at the same price on both Origin and Steam, I'll switched to usually going for Origin now.
tl;dr : if GTAV comes out for both Origin and Steam for the same price, I'm getting the Origin version.
So you enjoy always online DRM I guess?
Except Origin has an offline mode that actually works? Stop talking out your ass.
Origin almost has 2x the speed. Its your connection TC, Origin is already proven to be the better service, it just has less games than steam.
It's already been proven that Origin artificially inflates speed by downloading the compressed file but showing the download speed as if it wasn't compressed essentially doubling what your speed appears to be. --- http://tinyurl.com/3ljyptn Shooting blanks, every time, all the time.
