I am looking for a hard copy disc version of the game on PC but it seems like there is only a digital version of it? I wanted to preorder a hard copy version. I don't want to buy it on Origin and seems like you can only get a digital version even if it comes with a box? I know I am old school and like hard copies (this is why I also love console games) so is there a hard copy somewhere out there? And no, I am not going to buy it on PS4 even though I love my PS4. I might as well take advantage of my expansive GPU.


Now you might asked "if you like PC gaming wtf would you own anything hard copy". Well the thing is this is one of my favorite franchises of all time and I want to collect it like I did the trilogy for the last one console version. I have many many games on steam and origin but this mass effect I want to collect. But now I have a great GPU and rig, I only want to play this game on PC.

Nothing wrong with wanting a hard copy regardless of platform. But I don't think even the boxed copy includes a disc anywhere. It's just an activation code in order to download the game from Origin.

I guess they really wanted to cut corners on producing physical discs.

Unfortunately as far as I know there is none... You'll have to go XBone or PS4 to get one. Yes this sucks....

That's strange. Nowadays companies very rarely push physical copies of new PC games anymore. I would prefer if they did though.

Even if you go to a store and buy a box it will come with a paper with a code on it for you to use Origin to download it. I feel sorry for those people out there with bad internet service that would need to download some 30-50GB game when it is either super slow or have low monthly caps.
