Only the deluxe version is origin exclusive (weapons, armor and robotic dog pet).
The normal version will most likely end up on steam as the date gets closer.

Than by all means, stop purchasing games on Steam (more specifically, Valve games). That makes you a raging hypocrite. You can't complain about one than favor the other that does the EXACT same thing. That's a double standard, and a perfect example of what is wrong with the Steamboys arguments.

Origin = Sucks
Fairly disappointing . I like Steam because it's easy to keep track of friends-joining their games- having the library tidy

I like having all games on a single client

STEAM FTW

Ive said it before and ill say it again - if EA choose for us too have to install origin with it, so be it. We cannot do anything about it.

You can whinge all you want, but if your not going to buy this game JUST because you have to install ONE 3rd party app, you dont deserve too play this game, you deserve to sit there and sulk like a stubborn fool!!!

Look for Steam to be cut out of the loop in the near future. There just inst enough money to go around for middle men.

^ If Origin is going to be BF3's patch/DLC manager, it's going to come with a hard copy or any other form of distro.

EA is a business, and from that point of view their reasoning is sound: the only way for them to be sucessful is to leave the main competitor out of big releases.

From a consumer standpoint this is terrible because it is another program you have to use.

Unless they make the price very appealing on Origin.

And by that I mean so appealing it is worth it not going to a store and buying a retail copy of the game.

If they just sell it for $5 less than on a retail store then I am going to give them my vote on their future store: I'm not buying anything from Origin, and the few titles available there I will buy at retail. Even if Origin is required to be installed to play, they will still only have me as a retail copy user.

So, EA, this is to you: the only way to sway a Steam user to you is to make prices on new titles like Crysis 2 and BF3 so great I won't go to a store and buy them. Can you do that ? Crysis 2 is for sale at your store for the same price it was on Steam. That is not a good start. For me it's not a start at all.

The whole 'competitor' thing doesn't hold water since EA is still going to be releasing BF3 through a whole HOST of D.D. services and in Brick-and-Mortar stores.

The reason why EA is doing this is b/c they want to supplant Steam as the #1 D.D. service and they think their titles have enough pull on their own to do it, a la Half-Life 2 and Steam.

I haven't used EA's downloader but from what I remember it was just a simple downloading program. They'd better integrate a chat service into that or they will have some PO'ed people come launch as most of their titles have piss poor communication abilities on M.P.
