Newsbrief: You may have been unaware of the fact that Electronic Arts' Origin platform sells physical games alongside digital copies. It would appear that the vast majority of Origin users also didn't realize this -- and as such, EA has decided to drop physical sales from the platform.

According to a new blog post from Origin's Craig Harris, 1 percent of Origin users buy physical copies of games via Origin. Clearly this isn't high enough demand, as EA is now taking Origin all-digital.

"Digital is fast and convenient," he writes. "Originís focus is to give gamers the best experience, and going all-digital will make that possible."
