Man their prices on old games suck, no wonder people flock to Steam.
Origin's regular prices for those same old games are the same as on Steam. And, EA has had heavily discounted sales on those same EA games on Origin that were offered for free with the coupon. People flock to Steam, but it's not because of its prices on EA games.

Origin's never going to be able to compete with Steam on third-party games unless it greatly expands it catalog of those games and/or it entices third-party developers and publishers to exclusively tie their games to its platform as Steam has done. In the abscence of that what EA can do through promotions like this past one is encourage people to purchase future EA games that require Origin and encourage them to use Origin to make those purchases.
