EA will distribute a bunch of their top games through Steam, Destructoid has confirmed . I think this is great news, as it means not having to use EA's terrible download service to get their games digitally.
Dammit, I had insider information and I didn't even know it. I talked in person to Steve McClure last Saturday night and he said that EA was distributing on Steam like it was past tense...I hadn't checked but I thought they already were, so I didn't go hog wild over posting it. I do know something else cool, but he asked me not to spill anything about it.
Also, Steve is a cool person.
Finally trying to tap into that huge market for digitally distributed games. It's a good move on their part and a really interesting one too, eventually Steam is going ot be THE way to get games digitally. Heck, it pretty much is the standard now.
Great I guess. I stopped buying stuff on Steam when they started charging me in GBP (pounds stirling). When I was paying in Dollars I was saving a packet, so spent more! Even after VAT was added, it was a steal. Not any more.
Still Waaaaaaaaaay better than that stupid EA Download Manager crap.
