Wow. This is one of those things that I never thought I’d say out loud in my lifetime. EA learned their lesson. They have seen the grievous error of their ways, and have thus repented. How does one know this, you ask? Well, there is a simple answer.
You can now purchase games like Spore and Mass Effect, with notable titles like Dead Space on their way soon. The best part of all? It seems that they may be DRM-free. To me, this just speaks volumes to the power of Steam, and that Valve yet again shows that it understands gamers and digital distribution better than anybody.
What do you guys think? Good news? I certainly think so. I hope Steam is eventually the platform for all PC releases, personally.
