End of the road for PC game discs?

EA Sports considers distribution by download

PC gamers could well find the days of purchasing titles on discs numbered, after the president of EA Sports revealed "discs are not working".

In an interview with Edge, Peter Moore, said: "We've got to find the right business model for us going forward".

"We really want to keep sports an important part of the portfolio that's available to PC gamers, but the business model right now, shipping a physical disc for the PC, simply isn't working for us."

Moore also revealed the company is considering downloads as a distribution model for PC games.
