Am I getting that right...? As long as I have the premium service I can play it for "free" but as soon as I get rid of it I can't play...? Yes..?

Yes. As long as you have Origin Premiere you have the game. If you get it before the 15th you'll be able to play it this Friday instead of on the 22nd. If you cancel Premiere you lose access to the game.

The 'vault' of games you get access to is actually pretty decent too.

They Are Billions, Darksiders 3, and Ghost of A Tale were pleasant surprises for me.

I'm very wary. I think this is a step with the goal of killing single-payment licenses, and eventually killing the very idea of owning a copy of media.

The moment they make anything exclusive to this will make that clear. It would be a grave threat to media preservation.

100% this. That is certain to be the endgame behind this stuff. IMO killing single-payment licenses is the Holy Grail for publishers, there is probably little to nothing they want more. I always felt this was the true goal behind DRM itself.

Online only games in general are a thread to media preservation. Anthem won't be worth the disk space it consumes if the servers are turned off.

That’s correct. Origin premier is awesome if you play EA games. A hundo a year for all of their games, a week early for new games, plus all dlc and other bonuses. Plus, they are adding games from other companies to the vault.

A streaming-only future is a very realistic threat. Pirates could not counter that.
