EA's Origin EULA raises privacy concerns

Electronic Arts’ direct download service Origin has been released for Mac, the publisher has confirmed.

It has the same featureset as the PC version, which includes cloud storage and social connectivity via friends lists. Dual-platform play will also be available for selected EA titles, allowing users to buy a game once and download it for both PC and Mac.

“Our vision with Origin is to connect your gaming universe online, and today we’re taking a major step in expanding our service to reach Mac-based gamers worldwide,” said vice president of production for Origin at EA Michael Blank. “In delivering great game content, connecting the Origin service across PC, Mac and iOS devices, and offering great value to gamers with dual-platform play on select EA titles, Origin is making it easier than ever before for gamers to connect and play anytime, anywhere.”
