    Yeah, they really need to do better with PR. It's been a long run of bad news.

    Bioware public image is not great thanks to Dragon Age 2, SWTOR, and Mass Effect 3; and the general insanity of their DLC price structure. Then Maxis screwed the proverbial pooch with the Sim City launch which blows back on them even though every source I've heard says EA had nothing to do with that. They also need to hurry up an apologize to Valve. Lord knows I have my reservations about Steam but it is vastly VASTLY superior to Origin but EA continues to force gamers to use that annoying thing.

    To be fair, Steam was also annoying and has been forced to us at its beginning. EA just hopes that the trend will be the same for Origin.
    EA should apologize to Valve for what ? It seems I missed something.

    Another news : Rocksteady is actually working in the next episode of Batman (and the project is over soon), that's why the prequel is under another dev team's responsability.

    Their fight began over dlc for Dragon Age 2, I think. Basically Bioware refused to sell any DLC through steam, the idea being that people download the game through steam and then have to go to some separate thing to get any dlc and patches and such. This was inconvenient for Valve so they basically said "Look you can either sell you games through us or not". And pulled the store listings for any EA game that did that. It's why you can't buy Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 3, Battlefield 3, or Sim City on there.

    One of the reasons for the strong shift to Origin has be this dispute. They basically got the door slammed on them by the most popular PC game download interface out there.

    While I have mixed feelings about steam itself (let's just say I'm no excited about the steambox) but the truth is that steam has gained it's standing by selling PC games from all over at low prices with greater convenience for the gamer. Most of what they sell isn't actually Valve's either. As long as EA only deals in EA properties through Origin they can't do the same because they are mostly selling what they own. So it just seems like EA is making gamers jump through hoops to purchase their products instead of providing a service, which is the PR image steam has.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Don't get me wrong though. I don't think EA is actually even close to the worst company in America but it doesn't surprise me at all they got voted that way again. I don't think it's the worst company in gaming industry either. (Square-Enix would be my pick for that award, though I hope their new CEO can turn it around.)
