Live Q&A: Origin 9.0 And Beyond

Update: You can now watch the replay of this chat at http://www.origin.com/origin-9-chat.

Origin has seen a number of changes in the last few months. May’s update lightened the client’s CPU load, August’s update brought a revised UI and menu system, and to top it all off, we also announced plans for an Origin Mac client and a brand new set of social features during last week’s gamescom press conference.

At this point, we’re sure you have some questions: about what has changed, where Origin is going, and when you’ll start to see some of the social features we’ve talked about. That’s why the Origin team is opening up the floor for a live Q&A this Thursday, August 23. Beginning at 10:00 a.m. PT (5:00 p.m. UTC), Origin Creative Director Robert Kissinger and Product Manager Mike Lewis will be joining Senior Community Manager J Goldberg on camera to discuss the 9.0 update and this year’s gamescom announcements. They’ll also be taking questions from the Origin community; be sure to show up if you’d like to submit yours.

The Origin Q&A is open to everyone. If you have a computer and an internet connection, you can go the official Origin live chat page to set up a reminder now. If you don’t need one (or you’ve already put it on your calendar), just set a bookmark and return at 10:00 a.m. PT on August 23.

    Why you can not provide the download page for the possibility to download the full package? It is always irritating to pick up the link, edit it, and download the full package, I do not want a thin version! Provide an opportunity to easily download the full installer! ;(

    You should add all the sims 2 titles as well as need for speed most wanted (old one) to origin - but not only in the US please!! And it would also be nice to add some of origins key features to older titles as well as non-EA-titles. But I have to say that you guys are great that you improve origin on our feedback and i am looking forward to having achievements
