Notch Steam Needs Competition

Who all here hates EA? If you are a respectable gamer, you should. What does this have to do with Minecraft? Well, Notch recently commented on EA’s online digital distribution platform, Origin, so it has everything to do with Minecraft – kinda. Notch said that he feels that Origin could do some things that are better, such as requiring the gamers to have an Origin account to play EA titles like The Old Republic and Battlefield 3. But the real news here is that the Minecraft creator says it’s good for Steam to have some competition. “I think it’s a bit dangerous to only have one digital distribution platform like Steam,”

 

Commenters of this news seemed conflicted, one person said “Origin is EA, EA is evil, everything EA do/have done is/was and ever will be evil, therefore Origin is the spawn of evil. But “Notch” says Origin is a good thing, everybody loves “Notch”, “Notch” can’t be wrong, I can’t go against “Notch”.”

Another person flat out said, with lividly detailed language, “Comparing Origin to Steam is like comparing a piece of sh*t to a gold encrusted pair of double d breasts that lactate fresh cold Dr Pepper.”

Perhaps what is needed is another, one that doesn’t do so many bad things. Because as Notch said, “Origin does a couple things badly compared to Steam – which is impressive since they had eight years to study Steam,” We think that is an irremediable quality, because we know that means EA I just trying to be evil, like they always are. So, to sum up the story, Notch thinks Steam needs a competitor, and thinks that Origin kinda sucks.

So, what do you think?
