Origin distribute video games for PC. Will be 150 games available at launch the service will also offer social features such as chat, friends list, and a profile directly related to progress in games from Electronic Arts.

In the future, Origin could get on other devices, a spin-off of Battlefield 3 for mobile phones, for example, may allow you to unlock content for Battlefield 3. Origin will also be the only digital service from which you can download the BioWare MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic.
