Battlefield 3 is a few months away, and the news just keeps on coming. Last month, it was rumored that it might not come to Steam, and now it looks to be true. They’ve got a long-ass list of global digital retail partners, like longer than the history of Sonic and Final Fantasy combined. Yet, that list doesn’t include the distribution service that has over 30 million users. 30. Million.

I’m no expert, but I’m guessing that starting your own online distritibution service and getting several of your games taken down from your former online partner may kind of mean that you’re going to get your other big game on your own service. In fact, you may say that, due after a Steam pipe break, EA will have to hire a plumber and find the Origin of the burst pipes, and possibly buy a new Valve.

I’ll just go sit in the corner now.
