With approximately 95 per cent of piracy in the Indian game market, EA on GoD will help fight it. With this service, we are offering customers original games at much less rates as compared to even a pirated copy. It’s already available and gamers can access it on BSNL, MTNL, Airtel and other broadband services.”

We plan to launch it the next few months.” On, whether the EA games would be available through the full download service, Gondhal said, “We are yet to decide on the content.”
