Electronic Arts Snaps Up Batman Arkham City for Origin
So, on the one hand EA slams its competitors, while on the other it welcomes them aboard its Origin platform (aka the 'Steam Killer').

It is stating that, "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."

Of David DeMartini, senior vice president of Origin at EA is - of course - excited, "We're excited to welcome Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, THQ and Capcom as the first publishers to offer their games via Origin."

If that wasn't enough mounting emotion... "We are very pleased to partner with EA and have Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's key PC titles available on Origin," said Greg Ballard, senior vice president, Digital Games, Warner Bros.

And hold on, there is more excitement with Terri Schiek, senior vice president of publishing stating that, "THQ is excited to work with Origin and to offer players another new, innovative way to experience the over-the-top fun of Saints Row: The Third."

The entire excitment fest is capped off by Christian Svensson, senior vice president at Capcom Entertainment, "When we met with the EA team and discussed their long-term vision for Origin, we were excited to lend our weight to their efforts."

Exciting isn't it?

The trouble with services like Origin is that nobody wants them except the publishers. For gamers, they only get inbetween them and the games. They're a pain in the arse, to be frank.
