In response to the ongoing questions about EA games being removed from the popular download service Steam, EA’s SVP of Global E-Commerce David DeMartini released the following statement.

In response to the ongoing questions about EA games being removed from the popular download service Steam, EA’s SVP of Global E-Commerce David DeMartini released the following statement:

“At EA, we offer our games and content to all major download services including GameStop, Amazon, Direct2Drive and Steam.  Unfortunately, Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to sell downloadable content.  No other download service has adopted this practice.  Consequently some of our games have been removed by Steam.  We hope to work out an agreement to keep our games on Steam.”
