Origin Boasts 4M Client Installs; Promises Third-Party Content "Very Soon"

There are quotes on Gamasutra from Electronic Arts CFO Eric Brown, after he spoke today at a UBS conference in London. Speaking about their Origin service, he says to expect games from other publishers in the near future: "Initially, Origin is set up to deliver EA games, but very soon, we'll be delivering third-party content to Origin." He also spoke of how Origin is doing. "We're fairly excited about Origin," he said. "We have about 4 million installs of the client, we expect that number to climb substantially as we enter this ... holiday season." The article also notes that EA's PC games now install Origin by default, even if the game is purchased at retail.

I would take this news with a Himalayas of salt, to be honest.

Why? I mean, sure, I'd assume "about" 4 million means something in the 3.7 range, but beyond that, there's no reason to doubt it's in the ballpark.

And the news that all EA games now install the piece of shit is just... fantastic.

What aspect(s) of it are "shit"?

"We are going to force our shitty Digital River storefront down your throat whether you like it or not!"

I remember the same sentiment being expressed when Steam came out... And when the first couple Steamworks games came out. People got over that. They'll get over this.

lol...because whether they "get over it" or not determines whether it is shit or not?
