EA Sports "Abandon Physical Media" On PC


VG247 have been grilling outspoken EA Sports boss Peter Moore in a multipart interview. One of the headlines that has emerged from that is EA Sports intends to abandoned the boxed product for PC, because Moore believes "the future is online and connected.” This doesn't mean they're abandoning the PC, of course, so foot-to-ball remains safe. But it could radically change how you pay for EA Sports games: “You’re going to see us take a lot of our learnings from what we’re doing with our games in Asia, where I’ll give you the game for free, or a certain level for free,” said Moore. If all this is to be believed then we could be looking at a micropayment future for freely downloadable EA Sports games on PC. Update: Part two of Moore interview.
