Will Dead Space 3 come to Steam?
I seriously doubt it, because EA wants people to use Origin for their games even though its inferior to Steam. But do you think that EA will eventually put DS 3 onto Steam like they did with Crysis 2 Max Edition?

Normally, the guys on their twitter feed are pretty forthcoming with information, but whenever I ask about how DS3 will be distributed, they only say digitally. When I ask for specifics I get nothing. Its like they know that not bringing it to Steam is going to cause them issues.

I was going to ask the same question... I really hope they don't make the mistake of making it available only via Origin, specially when the previous 2 games are already on steam (exactly like Mass Effect). Don't they see its a stupid choice? Let the gamers choose!

And if they want to push Origin, then give some nice exclusive DLC or something for Origin, that would be a nice incentive, but they would not force us to buy it there, we still could choose to get it on Steam or elsewhere if we wanted.

Damn you EA!

I think it will be Origin only.

It's a gamer / publisher war of attrition. Who will weaken first, the publisher wanting to get the many millions of Steam users that will not install another platform to play games or the gamers who tire of waiting to see if the game comes to Steam?

I think it likely that when the game sales slow down enough on Origin they'll stick it up on Steam to try to grab the players that refused to buy on Origin. If people want it on Steam they need to stand tough and not buy it on Origin to send a clear message that they don't want to use Origin as another gaming platform when they are perfectly content with Steam.

When asking yourself "will Dead Space 3 come to Steam", ask yourself whos interests EA has in mind.

- Gamers interests? ( just cause they love us )
- Or pocket filling interested by milking out their dedicated fanbase and not publishing the game to the not-so-dedicated fanbase..

In a few years when their fanbase has been milked for all their cash, they will probably publish it again, at (near) full price on steam and still try to get support from some naive origin hating steam user.

Not gonna happen because of the microtransations

you can buy off amazon and use the code to activate through steam

That is not true. The advertisement on Amazon does not mention the key you get works with Steam, and Steam needs a special serial key for its games. You can't just use any key through Steam.

This is why I bought Dead Space for Ps3.
