EA slashes 18 Origin games to £5

Dragon Age offered at 90% below RRP

Electronic Arts has launched a new discount promotion for eighteen games hosted on its Origin portal.


The discount spree offers eighteen games at £5 in the UK, representing a saving as big as 90 per cent in some cases.

Dragon Age Origins (RRP £40), Spore (£20) and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (£20) are some of the titles that can be downloaded for £5.

The offer comes days after David DeMartini, EA's senior VP of global e-commerce, insisted that Origin would not participate in such discount promotions because "it cheapens intellectual property".

The Origin sales offer can be found here.
