[Battlefield03] Battlefield 3 – Steam Boycott Confirmed by Gamestop - Page 6  

post #51 of 207
The funniest people are those who have no dvd drives on their computers. Relax, it ain't 2025. And even though I am not a big fan of EA, I do not see a problem with their actions here. There are plenty of ways to get the game for those who want it anyways.

You're required to install origin to run BF3. My 2 cents.

This is what's going to happen. How else will they be able to advertise DLC to you? It's the easiest way to.

Do not see any correlation. BF3 will sell with or without steam. How can you compare this to AC?

Everyone seems to forget that for BFBC2 you can do an online authentication on retail copies so you don't have to use the disk, and that by just running the updater you can keep BFBC2 easily patched. I bet that BF3 will have these features as well.

You don't need steam for BF3

Steam has to download the patch for the game anyway when it's released. Is it really that hard to go to the official website and download the patch if you have a retail copy?

It'll be amazing when all internet providers put in monthly caps... you won't love Steam so much anymore.
i have a 315kb/s dl speed and a 150gb monthly cap. im trying to avoid downloading big games on steam

Steam is a rental service.

Good riddance. We don't need PMSing children in the BF3 community like that of the corruption in the CoD community these days.

Oh, and grow up, by the way.
