54. Re: On Mass Effect 3 DRM Feb 18, 2012, 18:18 Bhruic
I don't know about elsewhere but in the UK the prices are ridiculous

You're comparing apples and oranges. For example, Steam price of Kingdoms of Amalur - $59.99, Amazon - $50.99. Steam price of Crusader Kings II - $39.99, Amazon - $35.99. All you are doing is demonstrating that Amazon is generally cheaper than both Steam and Origin. But that doesn't make any comparison between the two. For the record, the Origin price of both games is identical to the Steam price.

Steam prices are pretty hit-and-miss (dependant upon the publisher) but their sales are exceptional, so it represents dramatically better value overall.

Jerykk's point was that Origin has great sales too, and you haven't done anything to disprove that.

Steam is certainly the better system right now, but Origin is in a position to have to play catch up - it doesn't have the library that Steam has. But compared to the early days of Steam, it's quite decent.
