EA Comments on Dragon Age 2′s Steam Disappearing Act


As you might expect, EA has something to say about Dragon Age 2‘s sudden disappearance from Steam this week. And they aren’t being as circumspect about the reason for the disappearance as they have been in the past. This time, rather, they just come right out and say what’s up, and it’s exactly what you thought was up. EA’s David DeMartini, in a statement:

Unfortunately, Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to sell downloadable content. No other download service has adopted this practice. Consequently some of our games have been removed by Steam.

We hope to work out an agreement to keep our games on Steam.

So that is that. Hey, Steam, you might wanna get this figured out, because you definitely want Battlefield 3 n your platform. You know, because it’s gonna make a lot of money. And, EA, you might wanna get this figured out because everyone hates you right now, not Steam. Seriously, everybody just thinks you’re being a bunch of assholes about this.

So figure it out.

Eh, I think EA’s posing. Steam let Borderlands have four DLC, for crying out loud (and they’re awesome). Why won’t they let EA? Maybe Valve won’t let them sell half a game?
