Hmmm, Crysis 2 for $10? That's pretty good, even as much as I personally dislike Origin. Still, the game isn't on Steam anymore, so it's this or nothing.

Decisions, decisions... Any idea how long these deals run?

Nice prices, but I'll get what I want on Steam while I can, before EA removes it.

I bought Crysis 2 since I do believe that's the cheapest the PC version has ever been. I also bought Bulletstorm from them during their promotion "try origin" deal for $8. I love Steam, but I'll buy the game from the cheapest source as long as I feel it's reliable. EA probably isn't going anywhere for a while.

I can't wait until they get a better selection of games. It blows me away that they don't add their past catalog of games for sale. I don't think they realize how many gamers enjoy making nostalgia trips.

Hm, other than Crysis 2 I'm not particularly impressed by any of these deals. Pass, but thanks for the post OP.

I believe your online address must be your EA/Origin address, so you can't have your store email be myoriginaddy@yoyo.com and the game email be onlinepewpewpew@geemale.com. (I had a similar problem when I set up my COD Elite stuff and couldn't sync with my old site PW because it didn't meet the new PW strength requirements. Lame.)

Due to backlog, I'm holding of on Crysis 2 until it goes below $8. I never finished the original yet (despite finally having a PC that can manhandle it) or Warhead and when playing on PC now it's pretty much Battlefield 3, so why add to the never-gonna-play pile when you can wait?

They have more at stake in terms of releasing their old games than Steam does. For one, they would have to make sure their games are compatible with current systems. It is EA's delivery system, so they will get even more flak if they release incompatible versions of their own games. 99% of the old games on Steam are from other publishers, so it really isn't entirely Valve's fault.

They have a deal with GOG for those and I'm pretty sure whatever contract they signed at the time stipulated the games to be GOG exclusive as they have yet to show up anywhere else.

For the most part they are $6 and all the games are DRM free so its far better than you'd get on Origin.

If Saboteur ever goes down to $5 I'll buy it. Never seen it lower than $10.
