EA Challenges Steam with Origin

EA Challenges Steam with Origin

EA has recently announced it will be releasing its own direct-to-PC downloading service called Origin. Though Origin is essentially the EA Store, EA will be making a lot of improvements on the brand.

Origin, while currently in beta, offers more than 150 games thus far for digital download. Also, it will be the only way you will be able to obtain a digital copy of Star Wars: The Old Republic; while this is its biggest selling point, it’s not the only attraction. EA also plans to offer an Origin service on mobile phones so you can easily download and stay up-to-date on EA mobile games.

EA’s official press conference during E3 is sure to have more information on this up-coming service.
