Isn't actually 50GB it's 50Gb after it's uncompressed, the actual download is about 8

I've stopped using disks a long time ago, don't even have an optical drive in my computer.

So I won't miss them, although having faster download speeds would be nice.

Doesn't change the original story though. Origin is simply an online platform.

Suckas need Verizon FIOS where you live. Verizon itself is a terrible company, but for $75 a month I have no data cap, 50/25 connection that is actually faster, around 60/35. Compared to some of the more awesome connections out there in the world, for even less, it's still slow, but I am happy with it.

I wouldn't call 60/35 slow by any means, even in today's standards.

Considering you're in the US, $75 is a decent price compared to similar offerings from the other major telecoms

Is that suppose to be impressive? I have it as well. You added nothing to the thread accept for an attempted e-peen status. Any hoo. Digital sales must be doing extremely well and clearly beating retail for them to do this.
