Fresh from the crusade against cheapening IP by making it accessible and affordable, Origin boss David DeMartini is once again weighing in on the relationship between Origin and rival service Steam. The narrative he’s using to frame the issue should be familiar to gamers who have lived through the great FPS war of 2011.
“Battlefield 3 isn’t Call of Duty. Battlefield 3 is great, it’s a shooter, but it’s a great shooter in its own right. I want Origin to be the exact same thing,” according to DeMartini.
“That doesn’t mean Call of Duty is bad. I don’t want to see Steam become bad. They’re a partner of us. They do a lot of good things. What I want is I want Origin to be differentiable and better as a service, which is similar to what Steam does.”
