This is the way it should have been in the first place. People are buying the product, not the Origin service. If i were to buy Battlefield 3 for example i should only be banned on playing the game on Origin servers if i broke the Origin terms. Same goes if i buy the game for my Playstation 3 or XBOX 360, i should only be banned from using the game on PSN or XBL if i broke those terms. The game itself is still owned by me.

I fear that digital games limits our accessibility and the single player experiences are slowly deteriorating in favor of getting the consumer to adapt to their philosophy of not really owning anything. What they should offer is a premium licence if this is the route they want to take. Pay $60 for a DRM free physical copy or pay less for a more restrictive digital version. Right now they are not going to win the support of the consumer if the prices are the same (sometimes the digital copy is even more!).

Should've been done from the start. The fact that it took this long is remarkable.

Funny how winning the award of "worst company in America" finally woke them up.
