EA Sports: Digital distribution is the future of PC gaming

Bit Tech reports EA Sports is planning to move away from physical media on the PC platform in the future:
Speaking to VG247 in a multi-part interview, Moore said that he felt the future of PC gaming is going to be online and heavily reliant on digital distribution and that he is keen to see that EA Sports isn't left behind.

So, all well and good - but it also seems that Moore may make the payment model for EA Sports games on the PC more reliant on microtransactions, rather than standard business models.

"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 (via RockPaperShotgun).
