Electronic Arts today launched a Mac version of the Origin digital distribution service, with dual-platform purchases available on select games.

The platform's Mac catalog currently offers a number of titles from EA, Warner Bros., Sega and other publishers, with games including Dragon Age 2, Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition, LEGO Harry Potter, and The Sims 3.

Origin's vice president Mike Blank noted that, much like on Valve's own Steam platform, a number of cross-platform games will only require a single purchase to receive both editions. However, he stated that this will only be available for "select" titles.

More information is available on the Origin blog.
