EA's Origin passed 50 million users


EA has confirmed Battlefield 3 Premium subscriber and Origin user numbers during its quarterly earnings report.

According to the report, Battlefield 3 Premium surpassed 4m total subscriptions, a rise of 500,000 new signups in the past three months. 

Meanwhile, Origin now has over 50 million registered users, an increase of 10 million accounts since March.

All these figures make both Battlefield Premium and Origin seem like a big success, which for EA means more money in its pocket. Now if only it would use some of that cash to bring back Xwing (it has the rights to the Star Wars franchise remember) and Desert Strike.

So, 50 million gamers have been forced into installing Malware on their PCs and are forced to pay through the nose for their games?

Granted I've not used origin for six months, so it may have changed up, but Steam is no where near as intrusive as origin or Uplay in my experience. And Origin is subject to EA's shitty pricing. Even selling at retail, steam is no where near as expensive

Anyone else have trouble believing this? The reaction among the "core" croud has been highly negative so I doubt they've downloaded it, while the "casual" crowd won't bother with digital downloads. As a result I imagine most of their accounts have come through forced activation and iirc SimCity / Crysis 3 / Dead Space 3 / Need for Speed: Most Wanted actually didn't sell that well (afaik the only other Origin title is Battlefield 3). So yeah, I really struggle to believe EA when they said this.

I don't have trouble believing it. Any gamer that plays EA games, even if you buy the disc, need origin installed to play it. It's a bit like having a headline saying "Sony breaks record in PS3 controller install base amongst PS3 users!"

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
