Origin to cease selling disc version of games

Origin has announced that they will stop shipping disc versions of games, downloads will all they sell. If you want disc versions, you’ll have to shop elsewhere.

UPDATE: We wanted to make sure everyone is clear – EA will continue to publish, sell and support PC and Mac games on disc, and you can still buy EA games on disc from your favorite game retailers. The Origin store will be selling digital games only beginning April 4. PC and Mac games purchased on disc will still be added to your Origin library once installed, and all future updates to the games will be handled through Origin.
Original blog below:
Starting April 4th Origin will be going all digital. This means the Origin game store will be entirely digital downloads for PC and Mac.
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.
