>Gamestop execs say no Battlefield 3 for Steam
>Well, the news only gets worse for the chances of Battlefield 3 coming to Steam. Today, Develop reports that Baird, a financial research firm, recently met with Gamestop’s management and was told directly that “Battlefield 3 will be sold as a download through GameStop, but not through Steam.”
As we reported last week
, EA has already inadvertently released a list of digital retailers for Battlefield 3 that did not include Steam. Today’s news continues to solidify our fear that EA is purposefully withholding Battlefield 3 from Steam solely for competitive reasons. As usual, we, the customers, are the ones who ultimately lose out, as we are forced to fragment our game collection across multiple distribution platforms because these companies can’t get along.
