>EA’s Origin to add third-party titles in November

>In news that should shock absolutely no one, EA has announced that Origin will soon be adding PC titles from third-party publishers, such as Warner Bros. Interactive, THQ, and Capcom.  This partnership will include upcoming games like Batman: Arkham City and Saints Row: The Third.

This is EA’s first real move to begin trying to cut away at Steam’s dominant market share in the digital distribution space.  Given the choice, would any of you actually choose to use Origin over Steam for buying games?
