At least now we can clearly see why it's not available on Steam.

If Steam is denying the listings because of the Origin requirement, I find that to be hypocritical on their part. Other stores carry Steamworks titles after all. It sounds like Steam isn't happy about something with regards to the DLC but I'm unsure of what that could be at this point. Several other titles sell DLC outside of the Steam framework but offer the title itself on Steam. I'm guessing EA and Valve had a very specific contract in this regard and one or the other stepped out of bounds.

Oh and some funny for the day that I just saw while catching up on reddit - apparently most people from Puerto Rico and Chile have to pay in Euros on Origin. I don't normally use this catchword but big Fail EA.
