EA has announced today that Origin, EA’s direct-to-consumer gaming platform, will soon offer some of the top PC game titles from publishers Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, THQ and Capcom Entertainment, Inc. Beginning in November, Origin will feature top new releases including Batman: Arkham City, Saints Row: The Third and more, ready for purchase and download. Additional titles from each publisher will be offered on Origin in the coming months, adding to the extensive library of more than 100 EA PC games already available, and giving PC gamers even more choice for the latest and greatest gaming content on Origin. This move officially puts Valve and its Steam platform on notice, EA is serious about pushing an alternative platform and for better or worse it is being successful. While there is no doubt that for the immediate future Steam is still the standard when it comes to PC gaming, EA’s Origin is nipping at its heels with more than six million registered users. Most of you will remember that EA pulled its games from Steam a while back and this move pretty much tells us that they won’t be coming back, at least not anytime soon. Your move Valve.
