Regardless, Steam nor GOG.com offer a refund policy. I think this is the first case, I may be wrong that digital distribution can be refunded. If you ended up buying a disastrous game such as Aliens: Colonial Marines from Steam, you would never get your money back. I know its only for EA games for now but this policy alone could make Origin quite better then Steam in the future. If this does become a bigger issue, I am sure that Valve will have to end up implementing a refund policy, which they should have had from the start. Please don't bring in the DRM argument in this topic. This is about refunds which is more imperative to common consumers who purchase products. That doesn't mean DRM isn't, but most people don't even understand DRM.slimgrin said:Actually, the only thing Steam does better than Origin is sales.
I think Origin needs to offer a better selection of games and sales to be better then steam.slimgrin said:As much as it hurts, I think Origin is better than Steam, Because it works. Steam is a bugfest for me. I can't explain it - every single PC in my house has had and still continues to have problems with Steam.
That's most likely because EA games are now only sold through Origin. EA is a much bigger publisher then Valve, you have DICE, Bioware and EA Sports that make them a lot of money. Every PC Gamer has bought at least one EA game. Steam still has far more publishers that pretty much sell the majority of all games.CostinMoroianu said:Well as a client and as a service it does perform better then steam despite having far fewer games.
