Origin is HereBut it's still not a whole lot different than the EA Store, yet. It did get a bigger launch for the E3 kickoff today, and a variety of exclusive videos are now available. The site also promises to be the sole digital source for several limited editions of games coming out later this year. Starting with the Scrabble game currently available now, programs will also increasingly add social media integration via the Origin service, and there will be more mobile features in general. We're still waiting for the classic rereleases, but until then, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of overlap with the recent GOG announcement.
Origin brings an entire universe of EA games into a single, convenient application. Origin lets you purchase and play your favorite EA games - any time and any place you want. With the in-game overlay, you can chat with your friends and browse the web while playing select games.
Origin's new social features allow you to create a profile, connect and chat with your friends, share your game library, and effortlessly join your friends' games.
Origin streamlines the download process, for quick, easy installation and use. Direct download of PC games requires the Origin client, and once you have it, you'll be able to access your game library from virtually anywhere. You can even play your favorite games on other PCs when you're on the go.
For gamers on the go, Origin services are also available on your mobile device! With the world's leading mobile gaming portfolio, EA offers mobile gamers an unmatched experience through Origin, including the ability to find and connect with your friends to play and share in a leading edge smartphone environment.
