Before we go further, I want to say just how much I love Steam. It makes PC gaming so easy by building a community around it's storefront. Don't get me started on Steam sales, either. Say bye-bye to ALL the money. So while I love Steam, there's now Origin that has to come into my life because of first Battlefield 3 and now The Old Republic. If I played Mass Effect on PC, I'd be tied to Origin with ME3, too, but I play that on 360. But now there's two stores, two community platforms with separate friends lists, and I already have a lot of EA Steam games (Battlefield 2, Dead Space 1 & 2, etc.) so that kinda sucks dealing with separate programs. So while I don't like Origin that much (it's still new, after all, so it'll get better I'm sure) I do like that it will now take my EA games from Steam and bring them to my Origin library. This may seem like nothing but what if I had the Mass Effect games there as well? Now I can have all three ME titles on the same platform instead of different ones. It's a nice idea to help Steam owners potentially switch, but Origin still has a lot to catch up to.
