EA announced at the recent GamesCon press conference that they are going to bring their Origin game download portal to Android, expanding its reach from the PC. Origin is similar to Steam where games are downloaded directly from a web portal to the device, and EA thinks they have a big enough fan base to sell their games through their own service. Currently Star Wars: The Old Republic and Battlefield 3 are some of the top games being sold through Origin.
If Origin does come to Android, all of the EA Games in the Play Store now would probably disappear, and from then on out only be sold through the Origin application. A tentative February 2013 date was thrown out but they were not very firm on that. EA doesn’t have the best reputation in the Android community as of late, would you buy any games through Origin on your phone or tablet?
