Not as long as BF3 is successful, so, never?

That's different, at the time that their games came out there was no competition in the online department. Their games work best on Steam because they are designed with Steam in mind and are coded around Steam. Why do you think they integrated Steam with the PS3 version of Portal 2?

EA does not do this, up until now you was able to buy almost all their games off Steam. Why do you think that is? There was no talk about it before E3 when they showed BF3. When they got back from E3 and after all the great talk about what they showed at E3 on BF3, that's when all this started to happen. They figured that right now would be their golden chance to compete, by making the most talked about game of E3 (EA's BF3) exclusive to their online service.

And I pre-ordered my Portal 2 copy off D2D and downloaded it from there, that is your example.

BF3@Gamestop, Eligible for PickUp@Store.

Not everybody has badass connection to download a 10 gig game, that would take me hours.

I could drive to the store quicker before the download would be finished. Others might like this digital distribution, I'd rather drive to get it in half the time it takes to download, "with my connection, refuse pay arm n leg for anything higher than a 12mbps connection".

If it takes any type of client to run the game, well then, this blows.

I am not fully clear as to if any client is needed to run bf3.

Wants
Install>Launch BF3>Play.

Do Not want.
1.Install any type of client>create account>Login>Install Game>Play game.

2.Launch client>Login>Client launches game>Finally I can play.

try to do it now.

EA is not doing anything that other businesses have not done, including steam.

its just silly to watch a bunch of valve fanbios actually soil their panties over this.

I buy games based on how good they are, not where they are purchased. Wanting to give valve your money simply because they allow you to download it is silly, when you should be more interested in the fact that you are going to be buying an awesome game ,and supporting a developer that deserves it.

Instead you are all throwing a fit about it, saying you wont buy the game simply because it doesnt have your preferred method. Completely blowing off the people you should care about, DICE.

IF we never get a new DICE game again, or they blow off PC from now on do to poor sales, only 1 person can be blamed. The people who turned their backs on DICE.

No, this isn't Valve. They don't force you to register and run a stupid client in order to launch the game. You don't even need to touch Origins/EA Download manager once it's installed. It's basically a download manager for big files and a library if you want to reinstall.

So will most you you guys be buying a hard copy of the game?

I wanted steam... This makes me sad.
post #468 of 606
I always buy a hard copy anyways. Also, the 'fanboism' is showing hard for both sides. You all can get off your high horses and may want to read what you're actually saying.

Nice, awesome, radical. EA is my new best friend. Will be pre-ordering it soon. Thanks for clearing this up.

TYG, Company with brains.

I am totally fine for 400mb patches vs 8-10 gig file that would take 110 minutes.
