ea-logoEA’s universally-disliked Origin service now has 11 million registered members. It’s also making money for EA – in fact, it has made $150 million of it between March 31, 20111 and April 1, 2012. Nucleus, the publisher’s cross-platform community network, now has 220 million members. These are staggering figures for such a reviled service.
