Electronic Arts’ Origin store is saying good bye to physical discs. EA’s Craig Harris posted the announcement on the offical Origin news feed. Origin will no longer offer customers the option of recieving a physical product after April 4th. The service will be 100% digital going forward. According to the post, only a small percentage of customers opted for the physical disc delivery.

Charlie Sin, the Maxis brand spokesperson, clarified that their games will still be available in disc form via other retail channels.
