Origin Vs Steam

The opening salvo of the looming war has been fired…

In what many are saying is in direct response to Steam’s announcement, yesterday, that they were launching a “Free-to-Play” initiative, EA have today mysteriously “withdrawn” Crysis 2 from sale via Steam. Furthermore they now list Crysis 2 as “only on Origin” in it’s product information page, despite the fact it can still be acquired from number of other direct download vendors… EA are clearly not particularly concerned with Valve’s “experience” of their mutual (for how much longer) relationship…

We say? Want an EA game on Steam? Buy it quick!
