consoles, a free-to-play MMO for browsers, and a social networking game for
release in 2012...

As the console wars continue, a new contender in the digital download conflict emerges. Publisher and developer Electronic Arts has announced that it’ll be offering “platform exclusives” in the form of games only available through its own download service, Origin.
