EA Joins Up With Steam

One of the biggest publishers in the world is bringing its top-shelf games to digital distribution platform Steam. Six titles are available now to North America gamers for purchase, with more to come soon.

Spore, Spore Creepy & Cute Parts Pack, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, Mass Effect, Need for Speed Undercover and EA SPORTS FIFA Manager 2009 are on Steam as of today. The official announcement notes that Mirror's Edge, Command & Conquer Red Alert 3, and Dead Space will be added to the digital service in the next few weeks.

Little odd to see EA jumping their own ship - they have a digital EA Store on their company website where they sold their self-developed titles - but it's a testament to the popularity of Steam. Furthermore, EA already handles distribution for boxed copies of Valve's games so this sort of cooperation between the companies isn't unprecedented.
