Dead Space 4 Cancelled?

Videogamer.com reports development of Dead Space 4 has been cancelled by Electronic Arts (though a next installment in the shooter series has yet to be announced) based on poor sales of Dead Space 3. They attribute this unconfirmed rumor to "a source familiar with the unannounced project" speaking on the condition of anonymity, who tells them the game was in preproduction at Visceral Games, and that a small team at Visceral Montreal was working on prototypes for the project. Their source says Visceral Montreal was closed as a result of the game being cancelled, which supports a report from a couple of weeks ago where a former Visceral Montreal employee claimed the studio's entire staff was let go. They contacted EA for comment, and were told the company does not comment on rumor or speculation (except when they chose to).

What I don't get is why people hate so much on Origin and praise Steam in the same breath. They're the same fucking thing.

It's been explained countless times so if you don't see it at this point, its because you don't want to. Some people like the community features and Origins suck while Steam has good ones. Some people like having their library centralized. Some people like Steams great sales while Origins are fewer and there are far less products available. The list goes on.

Origin is a really half assed client with few redeeming features (per product installation directories, no need to run client to run most games) that EA just kind of put out there and hasn't done much with. They could have been Sony with the crazy game share/video streaming stuff, they could have put real effort into community features and so on. The trouble is that they didn't really do anything to win people over.
