Like it or not; It looks like Origin's here to stay.
PC Gamers Like Star Wars: The Old Republic and Battlefield More Than They Dislike Origin
You may not be happy to discover Origin clinging for dear life to the soft, defenseless underbellies of your favorite big releases, but evidently, that hasn't stopped you from using it. Speaking during its Q3 financial results, EA announced that 9.3 million members of the Ancient Order of the Keyboard and Mouse have joined Origin's ranks -- one million of which use it on a daily basis. Moreover, 40 percent of SWTOR's sales came directly through Origin. The big take-away? EA's Origin-or-bust strategy for big games like BF3 and SWTOR
is working, and it's not likely to stop any time soon. So, EA, you've got us where you want us. Now how about going the extra mile to make it worth our while?
