EA: Over 5M Gamers Registered With Origin

Electronic Arts has revealed that its Origin digital game distribution service currently has over five million registered users, just four months after the initial launch of the service. [UPDATE: Clarified numbers.]
Electronic Arts has revealed that its Origin digital game distribution service currently has over five million registered users. Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, EA COO and industry veteran Peter Moore explained that, despite launching only four months ago, the service has seen respectable user numbers. "Like any piece of software, and I worked at Microsoft for enough years to say this, you launch software and continue to polish it, upgrade it, get feedback and make it better," he explained. "That's where we are with Origin. We're only four and a half months in and already over five million people are using it..." The company said last month that Origin had seen a total of four million installs of the client. EA CFO Eric Brown also revealed that third-party content will be available via Origin "very soon." The service currently only supplies EA-published games. [UPDATE: This story originally stated that Origin saw 5 million daily users, owing to a misquote from the original source story.]
