Electronic Arts announced their digital distribution service Origin generated more than $100 million in 2011 during their quarter three financial call. The success is probably in part due to the 2 million copies that Star Wars: The Old Republic sold and the 10 million copies that Battlefield 3 managed to rack up.
According to EA, Origin, "has registered more than 9.3 million consumers and generated more than $100 million in non-GAAP revenue since launch. Origin has publishing agreements with Warner Brothers, THQ, CapCom and recently added 11 new publishing partners including Trion and Robot Entertainment."
I'm pretty impressed by the success of Origin, as I've only had negative experiences with the service. It seems like I'm the only one, though. Well done EA.
