I want to get Fifa 15, but I don't want to have to look after a disk. The digital download straight from Origin is significantly more expensive than a physical copy from third party retailers so I'd rather not get that. I understand that Fifa 15 on PC uses Origin for physical copies anyway, so can I just buy the cheaper disk, install, register with Origin and then throw my disk away?


Well not throw away, but your basically right! I purchased an Origin game activated the serial from my account and the game does not require a disc anymore.

1) Buy game disc

2) Activate serial on Origin store

3) Install game from disc to PC

4) Login onto Origin

5) Play without disc

This is personal knowledge and experience no references.

    Was the game you bought FIFA 15 though? – user86571 Mar 4 '15 at 4:23

    I did this with Battle Field 4, Dragon Age, Sims 4, and a few others. – Hound Mar 4 '15 at 4:24
  • Assuming this is the same for Fifa, would I be able to reinstall the game without the disk? – Max Tilley Mar 4 '15 at 9:27

    Certainly once the game is linked to your account you can download it from origin. – Hound Mar 4 '15 at 12:02
