    If they’re still using Origin, then why would anyone care?

    Just play your on the house copy of Need for Speed Most Wanted? I think it’s Most Wanted. Whatever, one of them is free at the moment. Still uses Origin though and because of that I can’t be bothered playing it myself, but I still added it to my account because FREE.

    Yeah I don’t know why EA hasn’t just given up on it already. I’m pretty sure it hasn’t made them a lot of money to justify its existence. They only created Origin because they wanted to be cheap asses and not pay Valve/Steam money. But I damn well guarantee if they started to put their newer releases on Steam they’d make a shit ton of money to offset the cost.

    This isn’t at all my kind of game, but good to see they do understand the PC audience with a trailer highlighting platform specific features like this.

    Valve gets a share of 30% for each copy bought directly from their store.

    With Origin they keep all the revenue with spyware and and their own DRM as extras.

    Really? I thought all companies had to share the profits from the game and they took more than half the cut.
