A non-Valve F2P game released on Steam with a built-in store to avoid giving Steam a cut?
Yeah indeed, interesting thing about all this is that Valve seem fairly quiet on the whole situation, almost as if they accept that Steam will be in for a rougher ride in future, with a high profile company like EA splitting away from it and doing their own thing, a lot of others are tempted to do the same!

Depends on how much profit BF3 pulls in, that will be the trigger for the other big players like Activision & Ubisoft etc to follow suit.

Gaming DD services I have used, other than Steam... Matrix, Impulse and Origin.
Matrix and Origin recently, Impulse in 2008. Have I lost Sins of a Solar Empire?

Its obvious.
EA expects to have Origin accounts created for "inappropriate reasons" with "paid entitlements and/or downloaded games".

EA's Origin store will start offering third-party games next month. Electronic Arts had said that "forward-looking" publishers were looking to jump on board--those publishers include Warner Bros., THQ, and Capcom. On November 15th, Origin will add Batman: Arkham City and Saints Row: The Third, with more titles coming from these publishers "in the coming months."
More PC-gaming community fracturation into several services...

You ever tried running a game through one of those DD platforms while keeping in touch with friends from other DD platform?
I did with Starcraft 2 (battle.net) ladder games and trying to keep in touch with Steam friends. A nightmare.
