There must be a reason some game company hadn't done this before, because I'm sure it was thought of previously. It's a resolution to an age-old issue many gamers have with the software sales model. What if the game sucks? You're screwed basically.
All I can say is that I wish BF4 was on steam haha. Origin/EA has a REALLY bad track record with me.
ANy news on when it's gonna be implemented?
kinda sounds like a challenge to start beating EA games in under 24 hours
^Yes. I'm sure that will definitely be an idea many will try
I imagine that the steam community response will be one of "meh", as the game library on steam is just ridiculously large. Also, I don't see very many software companies having 60-90% off sales all over the year. Valve will stay high on its throne. (Though, there are maybe six or seven games that I wouldn't have minded returning)
This still doesn't make me want to trade with EA.
Their whole management style has been a comedy of errors and missteps.
True but games like BF4 I feel compelled to give them money.
