EA’s Origin service bids farewell to discs
Direct from a post on the Origin website, the service confirms that from the 4th April, the digital games store will be offering entirely digital downloads for PC and Mac. The post goes on to explain what this will mean for Origin’s customers:
“What does this mean for you? If you’re among 99% of our users, absolutely nothing. Your shopping experience hasn’t changed one single bit.
But if you’re that 1% 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.”
Placing the users who wish to have a physical copy of a game in the tiny 1% category? I don’t know about that, EA.
Regardless of percentages, Origin users who want to buy physical copies of a game will have to take their custom elsewhere come April 4th.
