EA has announced that it has no plans to make it's future digitally distributed games exclusive to Origin, EA's new digital distribution platform.

'Competition is a good thing,' said EA's European boss Jans Uwe, explaining that exclusive releases are not what EA has planned for Origin.

For the consumer also choice is a good thing. Competition and choice go hand in hand. So, [that] we will only distribute our own games on our own platform? I don't see that.

Origin will also be opened to sell games from other developers, Uwe told Eurogamer.

We are in discussions with other publishers to distribute their games. But the key is really to develop and impressive consumer experiance where people are happy to play and buy games.
