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
