It's official. Electronic Arts has thrown in with Valve, cozying up to Steam with a half-dozen titles from its library, an announcement semi-spoiled by the sudden appearance of Spore earlier this week.

Now available digitally are Mass Effect, Need For Speed Undercover, Spore (and the Spore Creepy & Cute Parts Pack), FIFA Manager 09 and Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. We'd consider that a big win for Valve, considering EA's kind of the competition with its own EA Store.

The official word tells us that Mirror's Edge, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 and Dead Space will join them "in the coming weeks."

We're still looking into the copyright protection measures employed on the EA catalog and hope that everything's hunky-dory. Thanks to Michael for the heads up.

Meh, Steam's just after screwing Europe sideways with their sudden € = $ enforced conversion rate. They've pretty much increased prices by 15% across the board overnight, so EA games won't get me running back.
