Origin Rising

Maybe if they get Platinum Games, I can add that silly “Revengeance” tag to it. Most likely thanks to boosts by Battlefield 3 and Star Wars: The Old Republic, Origin now boasts 9.3 Million registered users, with 1 million concurrent users daily. What’s more, they’ve now added 7 more publishers including Remedy Entertainment (Alan Wake) to the 11 that was announced last week.

With the upcoming Mass Effect 3 requiring Origin and being available on every digital distribution platform but Steam, we can expect Origin to grow further and not compete. It just needs a few more bells and whistles.

Maybe Skype too.
