Mass Effect 3 to be an Origin Exclusive

We now know that Mass Effect 3 will be an ori­gin exclu­sive on the PC along with The Old Repub­li­cand will not be avail­able on any of the oth­er DD plat­forms such as Steam, Direct2Drive and Impulse.  This will most like­ly be one in sev­er­al upcom­ing exclu­sives to the Ori­gin plat­form.  Oth­er title that are expect­ed to be Ori­gin exclu­sives are Bat­tle­field 3, Cry­sis 3 and any future AAA title releas­es that will come from EA.  
Mass Effect 3 will of course be avail­able on PS3 and Xbox 360 for those of you who do not wish to play on the PC.  What do you PC  guys think about Mass Effect 3 being Ori­gin exclu­sive?  Will this be bad for busi­ness?  Good or bad?

    next to get any Activi­sion title you’ll have to join what ever site they come up with to get DD games and so each dis­trib­u­tor will fol­low suit and we’ll be chas­ing all over the inter­net just to buy a stinkin game instead of hav­ing one cen­tral­izied site (hhh­m­m­mm “Steam” maybe) that has all our games locat­ed in one spot.…ugh

    With the excep­tion of my com­pet­i­tive mul­ti­play­er, I find that games are just more enjoy­able on a big TV, with a con­troller, lying/sitting on the couch. I’ll be get­ting ME3 for the same con­sole I had 1 and 2 for- Xbox 360. Yeah, the whole “Ori­gin” thing sucks, but peo­ple who want the game bad­ly enough are going to down­load it any­way. Real­ly, what they’re doing is actu­al­ly a pret­ty decent busi­ness strat­e­gy, it’s just also kind of a dick move.
