EA’s “Accidental” Rock Band Threat: What It Could Mean for PC

Everyone’s undoubtedly seen the image that’s soared in raging popularity: “On May 31, ROCK BAND will no longer be playable on your device. Thanks for rocking out with us!” If you’re one of the thousands of mobile users who spent a fiver on the pocket-sized music app, then you know what sort of uproar EA caused with this message. The most hilarious part of this whole thing, though?

if EA was to just pull the plug on origin, i could see serious lawsuit action there. i don't think EA has the balls to do something like that. they'd be cannibalized by gamers and the media in general, the media would have a field day with something like that.

You can just as easily loose your physical copy too then if it gets lost or damaged.

A digital version can still be saved on a physical medium or even in online storage. So you can still make a backup if the download service goes down.
