Will PC DEAD SPACE 3 Come to Steam?
Or only on Origin?

Probably only on Origin, because EA hates PC gamers.

Origin, because it has uncontrolled microtransactions, which are against Steam's ToS. That's why Dragon Age and Friends got pulled from Steam... and hey, that's an EA game too!

EA likes uncontrolled microtransactions. Steam doesnt. as such most EA games, such as battlefield 3 and DS 3 are not on steam.

DS1 and DS2 also EA games, right? And yet, they're on STEAM?

ds1 and 2 were released on steam as EA had not shifted from eadm to origin before their release

Yes, those are from before EA went microtransaction crazy, and steam shut those down

A couple of you guys mention that EA likes "uncontrolled microtransactions." Would one of you mind explaining what those are, because I have no clue.

Those are where EA can charge real-wolrd money for in-game content. It's like the Mann Co store in tf2, if you're familiar with that. Steam doesnt like those transactions unless it's optional, and EA mostly makes it so the game is near-unbeatable without paying for these transactions. Steam doesn't like pay to win, so EA is no longer releasing titles on Steam. That's why Battlefield 3 hasn't shown up on here yet,

Blizzard must hate PC gamers too.

Wait, steam LOVES those transactions. The only reason they don't let EA do it is because they want a percent of EA's profit from it.

This^ which is fair, they are entitled if it's on their service.

Blizzard doesn't need Valve to sell games. Starcraft and WoW are some of the most played games ever.

but it still sucks that the PC versions of the first 2 games (and quite possibly DS3 too) doesn't come with achievements, whereas the XBox and PS3 versions do
