EA's Origin service will no longer sell physical games starting next month

EA's Origin service will no longer sell physical copies of games starting next month, as the service is going all digital.

According to a post from the service, the Origin game store will feature "entirely digital downloads" for PC and Mac.

"If you're among 99% of our users, absolutely nothing [will change]. Your shopping experience hasn't changed one single bit," notes the announcement. "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.

"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."

So, come April 4, if you want physical PC or Mac copies of EA games titles, you will have to purchase the item elsewhere.

Thanks, Joystiq.
