Mobile gaming is growing at a rate of knots. Every day consumers continue to download games to their phones, with millions of people across the globe experiencing the thrill of gaming on their smartphones. Let’s take a look at the numbers behind the rise of mobile gaming.

As growth in mobile device ownership balloons, so does the rise in smartphone and tablet gaming. In fact, mobile devices are now being deemed as the top consumer gaming platform, defeating even the PC and dedicated consoles.

Origin Gaming Alpha

EA Origin Gaming Platform Comes To Mac In An Alpha Version

Origin is Electronic Arts platform to enable PC users to download games to their systems. Today EA has announced Mac owners will be able to get in on the action in the form of an Alpha version of the Origin client. Don’t go rushing to the Origin website just yet tho.

To start with the Alpha is only being opened up to a “a few thousand” users in North America and Europe. You can get the client from the Origin web store’s demos page.

Also worth noting this is an Alpha and just in case you didn’t know those come before beta’s and can often come with their fair share of bugs. For those who get in on the action will be gifted with a free copy of PopCap’s word-forming puzzle game Bookworm in the My Games library. Even better news is that you can heel this after the final release

EA remarked that it hopes the existence of an Origin client for Mac will serve as a motivation for more of the company’s games to appear on the platform. That being the case, which ones would you like to see that aren’t already announced?

Welcome to the Origin for Mac alpha.
Thank you for agreeing to alpha-test Origin for Mac. Your input will help shape the best possible experience for future users.

Before downloading the alpha version, make sure you are on a Mac that has OS X 10.6.8 or newer with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

Please note that the Origin Store tab is not yet live during this Alpha trial, but it will be live when we formally release the client. The service is currently in development, so functionality will be limited.

The mac sure is gaining some traction as a gaming system alongside home / office productivity. Steam has been around for a while now and with a competitor launching finally, we could see those AAA title’s heading to our Mac in a more timely fashion
