EA on Steam, but so far not in Europe

No immediate word on availability.

Electronic Arts has added several of its games to Steam in the US, but there's no word yet on when the likes of Spore will be available through the service in Europe.

The initial run of EA titles on the US version of the digital distribution channel consists of those two, Spore's Creepy & Cute Parts Pack, Warhammer Online, Need for Speed Undercover, Mass Effect and FIFA Manager 09.

The publisher also said to expect Mirror's Edge (due out at Euro retail 16th January), Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 and Dead Space "in the coming weeks".

However, despite global publishing exec John Pleasants' observation that EA is "pleased to extend our holiday titles to gamers worldwide via Steam", EA was unable to clarify European timing today.

We've also contacted Valve and expect something official from both companies soon.
