EA Gearing up for New Digital Distribution Hub
03 Jun, 2011
The Wall Street Journal reported that Electronic Arts was readying its answer to platforms like Steam and Direct2Drive by building and offering its own digital distribution hub, a story EA later confirmed. Origin will offer over 150 titles at launch and be the sole digital platform for Star Wars: The Old Republic, as well as having exclusive access to certain demos, games, and bonus content. Origin service will be a “cross-media” device, and will maintain multiple social networking capabilities on a single profile. Expect specific details to be discussed at EA’s E3 press conference.
