Submission + - EA is Now Officially on Steam; Spore Loses SecuROM (

Trevor DeRiza writes: "Today, Valve and EA revealed that this week's earlier rumors were true: Spore (and other EA games) are coming to Steam. As of today, Spore, Spore Creepy & Cute Parts Pack, Warhammer Online, Mass Effect, Need for Speed: Undercover, and FIFA Manager 2009 are all available for download on Steam. In the coming weeks, EA will add Mirror's Edge, Dead Space, and Red Alert 3. On the official Steam forums, when asked whether or not Spore would contain the dreaded DRM that "caused" it to be the most pirated game of 2008, a moderator replied, "It does not have third party DRM.""
