Petition: Don't make BF3 an Origin Exclusive - Page 14

post #131 of 362
I never had BC2 connected to Steam, so I have to say this really doesn't apply to me. I prefer some games on Steam and others not to be. Hopefully BF3 will be one of those that won't have to be if EA won't sell via Steam.

Petition signed due to my diminishing respect for EA's thoughtless decisions. ;]

Hypocrite.

And all this on a rumor...
We like Steam because we already have it. If some Steam games were ported over to another manager, I don't think anyone would care. If this game was ported to Steam, they would appreciate the choice.

It's not hypocrisy, it's ease of use.

I won't sign this garbage. How about we make a petition to stop companies from forcing us install Steam when we bought a boxed copy of the game? Ridiculous!

Plus BF3 is not an Origin exclusive, you can just buy the retail copy. There will probably be an option to install the whole game on your PC like BC2 so you won't need the disc anymore.

Plus competition will keep prices low. Steam always overchage.

trolololol. K, nowhere else have I ever seen prices as low as Steam sales go. Second, have you ever visited a gamestop.... Or looked on the egg? For a monopoly, they are doing a damn fine job at keeping us satisfied.

You would think they would sell it anyway they could. Not selling it every where is just limiting their market exposure.

if they want the majority of people to buy it on their Origin store then they should sell it cheaper there. makes sense since they wouldn't have to pay Steam their fee for selling the game for them. Though in my case if it $45 on Origin and $55 on Steam...I'd probably still buy it on Steam.

As far as digital purchases go Steam is ussually the cheapest (in the US anyway). However, you can actually buy the box and disk off of Amazon for a lot of games for a decent amount less than Steam, but then you have to deal with all the stuff that a retail box game has. Not that it is hard to deal with game disks, but if I can avoid them for a few dollars more I ussually will. I have to see a game disk for at least $15 less for me to actually buy it over a Steam download.

...and I have three Gamestops in my town and only one has any PC game at all on a very small dusty rack in the corner of the store. I can order a PC game there, but then I might as well order it online cheaper.

Well, they have removed Crysis 2 from Steam, so I think our hope for Battlefield 3 being on Steam is pretty much none right now.
