[GameSpot] Origin surpasses 5 million daily users - Page 2

post #11 of 147
Even origin is good and is not bloated like Steam used to be before. And i get new game for 20$. I pre-ordered BF3 for 30$ and Crysis 2 for 11$

I really hope origin keeps growing. It's always better to have competition.

I'm not sure. Having a community fractured by a number of services is good for 'PC gaming' as a whole. I mean Xbox live and PSN have a huge and strong community, I think that's partly down to the existence of a unity. I don't see a Gaming OS ever coming out, so it would be nice to have an equivalence on PC (in the sense of unity).

Imagine in 10 years time:

Friend: "Hey man, wanna chillout with a few games tonight?"
You: "Sure!"
Friend: "Whats your User ID"
You:
"Origin - Shooter818
Steam - Shooter8
Capsule - Eragon81
ActiCrud - Danny01
BethesDataBoard - Igglerustick
Uplay - Iggle81
2Kportal - Danny81
THQ centre - IggleJelly81"
Friend:... cool. That it?
You: Nah, I'll give you the rest later.

Even if you did have same user ID for all (which is highlighly unlikely unless you have a string of obscure numbers and letters) it would be a security risk. Then there's having to have separate emails for each - since even now I have 1 account for 1 email (for security reasons) with regards to my Origin, Steam, Gog accounts.... I don't want anymore... but knowing the current trend on PC I'm sure its going to happen anyway.

Oh, they know and they're happy about it. It means all that money gone into marketing is paying off.
