The lights are on
EA said today that SEGA will begin offering its PC titles through its digital store Origin. The first title being offered, Total War Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai, is now available for pre-order.
"By partnering with publishers like SEGA, we're able to bring even more of the industry's best games to players on Origin," said Craig Rechenmacher, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing for Origin. "With 11 million registered users around the world, Origin is fast becoming the destination for consumers looking for fresh new content to play with their friends."
Other additions announced today include Team 17 Software Limited,
Rebellion, Kalypso Media Digital Ltd. and more. The total number of game
publishers and developers on Origin to 35 partners, EA said. PC titles
from these partners will be available on Origin in the coming months, the publisher added.
I prefer most Sega games on consoles anyhow... I haven't the decent graphic cards to do too much dedicated PC gaming, other than a few Steam downloads.
Meh this game has already been up on Steam for about two weeks to pre-order it.
If I want "fresh new content to play with my friends," I'm never going to Origin.
Thanks. but no thanks. I'll still stick with Steam.
I got really excited reading the headline, as I thought SEGA was partnering with Origin of "Wing Commander" fame... but I guess not! lol.
That new list of partnered developers is not impressive :s
Lol... okay EA. As many have said before me, how many were forced to join?
Also, have a discount on DLC already. Or bioware points. Or all the other stupid unnecessary things you guys employ just to confuse gamers.
I was gonna buy ME3 digitally, but since I don't think your service will be around that long, I'll buy the physical copy :)
Well I guess this is good news if the Wii U uses it
It's already on Steam.
Like other people are saying, Origin is not an good service like Steam, and as long as there aren't Origin exclusive titles (EA excluded), then I'll be happy. If EA were to let users choose between Steam and Origin, how many do you think would stay on Origin.
That's like Ford saying we have 11 million customers. Of course you have 11 million customers because they're buying it from you. May not be the best analogy but it gets the point across.
Screw you EA and your attempt to make me download your origin service, I didn't like it with steam but I put up with it, I wont put up with this iteration.
