I've loaded NFS: Shift bought from amazon into Origin and someone else loaded their Crysis key from steam into Origin... so I get the feeling that just about any valid CD key will work. Kinda nice if you find it somewhere cheaper. Redeeming the cd key to origin let me download the files from their server, and you don't have to have it running in the background to play.
So really, I don't get what's so bad about origin
