If you’re of the 1% that still wants a tangible copy of a game, you’re going to be disappointed.

In an announcement on Origin’s website, EA stated that the platform “will be going all digital” on 4 April 2014, selling only downloads for PC and Mac. The Titanfall, Battlefield, and SimCity publisher also said this means that if you’re one of the 99% of users, this digital-only change won’t affect you at all.

However they did say, “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.”

EA finished by saying, “Digital is fast and convenient. Origin’s focus is to give gamers the best experience, and going all-digital will make that possible.”

How does this change affect you? Are you part of the 1%? Let us know in the comments below!
