The Old Republic Downloads to be Exclusive to EA’s “Origin” Service

Will Origin Top Steam?
I have been a Steam gal since 2005. I love the majority of the games released on Steam and I love access to old-school favorites and new releases all from one platform. When rumors first started that EA was building their own similar platform services, I thought it was a great idea, although I was still skeptical about whether or not they would truly compete with Steam when Steam has such a big head start.
Launching with Star Wars: The Old Republic is as good a way as any to ensure they have the best possible chance of catching Steam in terms of users. The news was released today that TOR downloads will be exclusive to EA’s Origin Service which should be explained in more detail officially at E3.
As of 11:24ET, Origin is officially online if you want to check it out for yourself. And if you want to get your own digital copy of TOR, this is going to be the only place to do so. You will still be able to purchase TOR in retail stores.
The Origin service will start off with 150 titles and TOR will be one of several exclusive titles that you can only get digitally through their service.

So what do you think? Will you use Origin?
