EA’s Origin service now has 40 million members, according to the firm. This is up from 39 million announced during its Q3 financials in January. The firm gained another 2 million new registrations in January 2013 alone, and with the launch of SimCity, the service saw 1.3 million concurrent users at its peak. To celebrate, Origin is hosting a Player Appreciation Sale for one week, with up to 70% off on select titles. It was reported earlier today that Origin contains an exploit which could allow hackers to hijack PCs. Thanks, Gamespot.
