    Is it too early to boycott origin? Maybe EA are acting like ass hats because they just weren't used to all the praise and admiration they were getting with regards bf3. The clever / dumb balance has been restored.

    If you offer a game through steam then you should make a commitment that patches and DLC will be made available through that channel as well.

    To allow people to pay good money to buy the game through steam - then make content unavailable to them is wrong. Good on Steam for refusing to sell the game (if that is what happened).

    I'm sick of all these companies insisting I fill my hard drive with all these hub style programs so they can control how I play my games. Its the further consolification of the PC in play, if I want to play one game I have to go here, if I want to play that game I have to go there, DL this program, DL that program, "OH ill buy it off the shelf"... SURPRISE! You have to register it on steam! It sucks and naturally EA's storming out of the barn flinging **** everywhere, whats the aim of this? Of course to draw the people that want to play an EA game away from competitors, this could just create more brand loyalty turd tossing ala Microsoft and Sony! It just makes you want to snap your own neck!

    I doesn't make me want to snap my neck, it makes me want to uninstalled origin. I love steam and while some competition may be good, I don't want competition for competitions sake, if that's the case I'd just rather have steam.

    Steam has spent years fine-tuning their model. As a result it's the best thing to happen to PC gaming in years. Steam sales > PSN/XBL any day.

    I have little to no motivation to see someone else try and stear me away from steam, esp. since I have over 70 titles activated on steam. Which, consequently, is also the ultimate anti-cheat. People with large libraries aren't going to risk their collection over headshots in BlackOps.

    Steam or GTFO imo.

    Steam gives the small indie developer a platform on which to showcase their work. Can you imagine EA doing that? Funny the amount of hostility thrown at Valve because they're making money from their content delivery system. I have bought many current titles on steam when they have a massive price reduction.

    Kinda works for me, I'll be way less tempted to be BF3 on release at full price now and be happy to wait until it's cheaper at retail, been patched up and I've upgraded my rig.

    Steam is way to good at getting impulse buys out of me when I've still got a massive back log of great games to finish up.

    The only change is that now all the DLC is published, they don't need to use Valve's system. That's why. No other reason. It's why they left in the first place.

    I'm tempted to buy it at £15. Is Crysis 2 any good?

    WTF at EA :D. A mappack plus few guns, and they want 17.49e (that is with 50% discount for me as a existing Crysis 2 owner on STEAM) from me ? They must use some very interesting stuff to come up with such stupid offer.

    Interestingly I cannot open the Crysis 2 store page. Although it appears in the dropdown list, when I type Crysis into the search box I cannot open the page. I always get bounced back to the store front page. No problem with any other game, including Crysis and Crysis: Warhead.

    I bought it when I saw it was back; had been waiting to buy it and was really p***** off when it was removed (I like completeness in my games collection, what can I say). Eh, it's overpriced, but hopefully at least it will be fun.

    I found it an enjoyable game..

    But it was like the modern Star Wars's.. God awful compared with the originals.
