    This is a really dumb move on EA's part. They can only lose money from this in the long run. 90% of EA games that I buy, I do so only after they have hit 50% or 75% off on Steam. I doubt that Origin is going to have the same huge sales Steam has. I'm already counting on getting Dead Space 2 for $10 or $15 in the Steam Halloween sale, and the Dragon Age GOTY edition for $10 around Christmas. It's better to sell 10 copies of a game at $10 each than 1 copy of a game at $60. I'm aware that Steam skims a little off the top of each sale, but it's still money EA wouldn't be getting without Steam in the first place. Also, I own Mass Effect 1 and 2 on Steam. I would like to have the third one there as well. I realize I could add it as a non-steam game, but it's not the same. I hope Origin tanks, which it probably will. It would serve them right if it hurt The Old Republic sales too.

    Now their adding exclusives so people will use their service? Sounds just like how Microsoft is trying to shove Kinect-ware down consumers throats. First EA tries to correct their Physical Ware-fare pack fiasco, which by the way people, says they will release it free "Later this year" (When is later? Christmas? What a bunch of crock., and now their making Karkland, which should be in the game since it is already developed for pre-order, so those that do not, must pay full price for it. EA, you had the crown, but your greed is disgusting.

    Ah, theres the EA we all know and hate. Good to see Activision isn't the only one hogging the limelight these days.
