EA Steam Return Hint

A tweet from Electronic Arts adds fuel, or at least steam, to the recent indications that EA Games will be making a return to Steam (thanks DSOGaming). In a bygone time Electronic Arts games were sold on Steam, but that ended when EA launched Origin as their own online store back in 2011. The new tweet offers a visual hint at the return, showing an EA mug emitting wisps of steam. This seems like a pretty straightforward clue, though it could just mean that they really like coffee.

If they lost 10% of their sales by leaving Steam, not paying Valve's 30% cut would have more than made up for it.

Why? Less people buying game = more profit??

If EA sells 100 copies of a $100 game on Steam, their revenue after Valve's cut is, theoretically:
100 x 0.7($100) = $7,000

If they sell 10% less, but don't have to pay Valve, their revenue is:
90 x 1.0(($100) = $9,000

Less people doesn't = more profit, not paying the middleman is what = more profit.
