Milestone reached within five months, according to company executive Peter Moore

More than five million gamers use EA’s online download platform Origin every day, the publisher’s COO Peter Moore has said.

The former EA Sports boss told Screen Play about the service after being heckled at the EB Games Expo in Australia last weekend by one member of the audience.

“We're only four and a half months in and already over five million people are using [Origin] on a daily basis,” said Moore.

“As I said to the young man who shouted at me, I think two years from now we'll be back down here in Australia and talking about how it really enhances and complements the gaming experience, not gets in the way of it, which I think some people do believe right now."
