While EA's credibility is questionable, the fact that almost nobody doubts Valve one iota around here scares the piss out of me.
It's like the equivalent of Steve Jobs fanboys in this thread.
Exactly, I mean people buy what he says hook line and sinker. Remember this isn't the first person to say this kind of thing about Valve. I think on the whole they are good for the market and I will continue to buy for them but for people to slavishly believe everything this guy says without questioning it especially since I'm sure they have a clause where they can't disclose the exact terms of the contract so EA are screwed. This is bad PR for EA, EA are a business and bad PR is never good. They would not be doing this without a reason and the fact they still sell these products on other services eliminates the "it's to prop up their own service" argument.
