I think you're missing his point. He's arguing that it's a stupid business move on EA's behalf to not have these sales on Origin. Discounting games through Amazon is all well and good, except Amazon gets a 30% cut from each sale. If these discounts were Origin-exclusive, EA would be getting 100% profit from each sale. In addition, people would have greater incentive to install and actually use Origin. Steam's discounts are the primary cause of its success. EA would do well to learn from this if they want Origin to succeed.

On the other hand, Origin is still buggy. Out of the blue all of my adverts started appearing in Cyrillic.
