Really, they are doing nothing more than what Valve did - tie their games to their distribution system. If anyone things Valve would do things any different today, they are nuts.

Funny, since you can buy Valve's games on Origin.

Very funny, since Valve isn't exactly in the position of starting out their service. If Valve were starting up Steam today, they'd almost certainly do it the same way they did it originally (although, frankly, they don't have a popular enough game these days to pull if off).

Also you can buy almost every EA game on every service except Steam, so it's not like there's no choice.
