EA Games on Steam

Steam News announces that several EA games are now available to their North American customers, including Spore (confirming recent speculation) as well as Spore Creepy & Cute Parts Pack, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, Mass Effect, Need for Speed Undercover, and FIFA Manager 2009. They also say in the coming weeks they will also be adding Mirror's Edge, Red Alert 3, and Dead Space, though there is no indication at this time as to whether they will expand the EA catalog on Steam to other territories. Update: A post on the Steam Users' Forums by one of the moderators states the EA games on Steam will have no third-party DRM (i.e., SecuROM). Thanks nin. We have asked Valve for official word on this as well as whether there are plans to open this up outside of North America. Steam has been listing third-party DRM on game pages lately, and their page for Spore does not mention SecuROM.

Steam Forum mod is claiming there is no Activation limits on Spore...hopefully the same for Mass Effect and other games.
