I can understand wanting EA games on Steam and I can understand not liking Origin's T&C but I can't understand why it's unreasonable for EA to not want to give a competitor a slice of their cash.

By the same token it's reasonable for gamers not to like this, since the endpoint is every publisher setting up their own competing service with nothing available on anyone else's DD platform. It would be better for us if EA continued releasing games on Steam as well as Origin, so you can't expect people to cheer them on, either. It's not like we have any vested interest in EA maximizing their profits.

Yes, that's fair. However, accusing a multi-billion dollar company of being greedy is just ridiculous. You know what happens to the CEO of a huge company who isn't obsessed with making money? He gets kicked out of his office at the next AGM and replaced with someone who is.

I understand people not liking how EA goes about making money and if I'd known about the always-on requirement at the time, I wouldn't have preordered Simcity. However, deger's attitude is just naive.
