Green Man Gaming pulls EA games from shelves

Digital distributor Green Man Gaming has yanked Electronic Arts games from its virtual store shelves around the world, except for the United Kingdom. It is the second service to do this, with games controversially disappearing from Steam earlier this year. 

"Bad news folks, we very unfortunately have to pull down EA products from sale in all regions except for the UK," said GMG's community manager. "We're currently in talks with EA to see if this can be changed, however I can't give any kind of guarantees aside from saying as soon as I know something I will let you know too."

Any page with an EA game on it bears the message, "Due to contractual obligations, we are only able to advertise this product in Pounds Sterling."

EA has butted heads with Valve over how downloadable content is sold to customers. The publisher wants to do everything in-game, but Steam requires DLC to be sold through the store. It's unclear if this issue is the same with GMG, but EA's recent combative stance against pretty much everyone in the world is likely at the heart of the issue.
