Only the blind can't see that any deal or bundle you see with BF4 is just an attempt to suck you into EA's Origin portal; and you haven't realized yet that Origin does not exist for YOU as a customer/gamer. It exists only for the corporation. They didn't make Origin for you; they made it for themselves because of greed, and control.

Steam is FREE. Origin is FREE. So, ask yourself, why does Origin even exist in the first place if both are free? Whatever answer you come up with, it's not going to be an answer that describes something that it's in your favor or something related to you.

EA cried at Steam's terms and cried about losing a teeny tiny cut of $, and that was enough for them to be all like "let's make our own! it will work, because we'll just pull Battlefield out of Steam and Stores, and force it on Origin only! yah!!!"

DICE/FrostBite/Battiefield franchise is the only thing EA has to attempt to suck you in.

Good day, sheeple. "Any remember kids! Origin is 10 years behind Steam."

so many ignorant gamers out there, where to begin!

you really don't know the reason? think. it's not that difficult.

valve made steam to tell their publisher Vivendi to go fuck themselves, that they were tired of giving their profits to a 3rd party company.

EA made origin for the EXACT SAME REASON. they were tired of giving their profits to other publishers (aka steam).

it's called exclusive content. if you made a product, and sold it through other stores, say walmart, and walmart took a cut of every sale you made, wouldn't it be a smart idea to just open up your own store? one that's owned, managed, and run by YOU? so you keep all the profits?

love how anti-competition is godly when it's valve, but when anyone else does it, it's crimimal. learn what capitalism is, then come back.

Also learn your timeline, Steam isn't even 10 years old yet, let alone 10 years behind Origin which is a re-branded EA downloader which has existed since 2006. that's right a whole 2 years behind the 2004 release of Steam. get your facts right.

but sure you should hate anything that came after the first people to do it right? so you hate all other digital content distributors? gamefly? GoG? greenman gaming? they're all "NOT STEAM".

i'll never understand how an article saying: "giving away free game" can possibly garner so much hate. people have some seriously twisted agendas on here sometimes. Next time a store that isn't walmart offers you a free product, make sure to picket out front of that store telling the world how evil it is that the product isn't sold at wal-mart.
