The plot thickins.. BF3 wont be availble on STEAM, EA SECOND shot has been fired. Selling on STEAM includes all DLC being sold on steam also, EA didnt want to share (i cant argue this, but you sign a contract, you understand what it means, then cry foul when its inforced) its DLC, (in Crysis 2) so it bypassed STEAM for it.. Steam removed it (and sales dropped to nil) its seince been put back and sales have came back (not a top 10 game anymore, but EA killed ist momentum with that BS. STEAMS contract is pretty plain, all DLC has to go through the steam store, yet EA said they didnt understand this?
Now one of about 5 games made that has pretty much guaranted sales Battelfield 3 is there next shot at STEAM. its to bad.. COD will get anotehr boost.. its already seen as the better of the two (if sales indicate popularity) now EA is going to shoot itself in the foot to try grab some of STEAM thunder.
I was not a fan of steam, but realistic prices, solid download speeds, simple to use browser. I cant fualt any of it. Now that they have succeded where nobody wanted to go (by giving there product away for alomst nothing) the rest aof the greedy buggers want in..
And another Sad note if you are a Netflix fan.. Streaming WILL be alot more expensive in about a year. The studios all signed contracts that specify views.. with the way netflix is growing, all contracts wilbbe Null and void.. and AMAZON, WALMART, etc all want in the action. Netflix is almost a no show when it comes to having bankroll to compete with bigger companies that want in. Look for a MS tactic.. pay outragous money to get the product till your compation cant survive. Start learning how to use AMAZON in the next 6 months. And lets not forget the studios, with declining disc sales and Streaming views going up, they will want a piece of that too.
dark days ahead for the tech we all love. Splinterd Digital services that all want to install bloated software on your machine to keep track of you, video streaming that is predicted to cost about 2 to 3X more than it does now. maybe a good thing, I will spend more time outside then.
All this doom and gloom brought to you by GREED, we all have a little inside us :)
