“What does this mean for you?” EA said in its blog post titled A Fond Farewell to Discs! “If you’re among 99 per cent of our users, absolutely nothing. Your shopping experience hasn’t changed one single bit.
“But if you’re that 1 per cent who still desires a physical collection, we want to let you know that Origin won’t be able to fulfill that need beginning April 4th. We’ll still be here when you transition your gaming habits to the wonders of digital downloads.
“Digital is fast and convenient. Origin’s focus is to give gamers the best experience, and going all-digital will make that possible.”
