Everyone’s favorite PC Super Hero Gabe Newell decided to comment on a bit of what EA is up to with Origin. You may be aware, but EA is trying to push in on Steam’s dominance of the digital PC Market. While I’m all for competition as it usually ends up helping customers, I not a fan of having my PC Digital Games Library spread out over multiple pieces of Software. So, check out what Gabe has to say about EA’s Origin.
“I think it does some things well. I think there are still some areas where, as a customer, I’d like to see it improve. It’s not that different from any other system like this. There are positive things and negative things.”
“I and everyone at Valve know that you’re only as successful as what you’ve done lately,” he added. “So the idea that Steam is somehow the answer to digital distribution ignores the fact that every two or three years, something is going to change dramatically.”
