I'm bloody not. Have you seen the prices (overall) in Origin?
Quick example - Battlefield 3 Limited Edition Preorder:
Origin/EA Store: £39.99
Another example: Crysis 2:
Origin/EA Store: £34.99
So why would I want to use Origin? They're a lot more expensive than any other store and on top of that, they don't have the excuse that the money goes to the retailer.
I'm all for paying big bucks for games but this is just ridiculous.
