[Battlefield03] Battlefield 3 – Steam Boycott Confirmed by Gamestop - Page 8  

post #71 of 207
Personally I never understood what makes people say "someone else wants to experience something in the way that's different from my preference? SCREW THEM I HOPE THEY CAN'T DO IT!"

Who cares if you don't want a digital copy on steam? Some of us do. For you to be happy that we can't get it is just assinine. Also, for you to want BF3 to sell fewer copies because steam is the dominant market in PC gaming, also counterproductive.

I wanted this on Steam for the overlay, friends, and ease of management. If it's not on Steam, I'll buy it retail. If it requires Origin, I'll deal with it.

What does Gamestop have to do with this... I would buy it from Origin before Gamestop. (I really already pre-ordered from newegg with the 50 dollar sale)

Sucks. Having digital copy games on Steam makes things more convenient. So hard copy it is...

Jesus, HAVE ANY OF YOU ACTUALLY PURCHASED A GAME IN-STORE IN THE LAST YEAR? Because most games now-a-days activates using the same method used for Battlefield, Bad Company 2. Your usually given 2 options:
A.) Validate your key over via the internet Using their online database, and the installation program will also take some unique info from your computer, and register it to your game key.
Result: No game disc required to play, game can be re-registered on a single machine at one time. Thus, you can uninstall it from one computer, and reinstall it on another a number of times. (it was 10 for BC2)
B.) Physical Disc Validation Validation of game following installation only requires a disc in the tray if you want to play the game.
Result:No computer info is taken, Original game disc must be handy, and cannot be copied to another disc. game disc can be used on as many machines as you want, but the game can only be played with that specific key only by using the original game disc.

Thus, people are kind of mistaken about buying physical game media, as many will still allow you to play without a disc needed in the tray.
Unfortunately, there are so many stupid f**kin trolls and spammers that I doubt anyone is actually going to see what I just wrote here, despite that everone keeps claiming the disc is so terible because you need it in the drive (Definitely not true)

If the online activation option does not exist, which I strongly doubt, then you could always mount the disc image with decent image mounting software, though I'm not sure about the legality of that at this point...

Anyways, I've already got my hard copy pre-ordered, I don't mind leaving my house and venturing into the outside world in order to get what looking for. Like a few others have said, BF2 is the only other PC game I own a physical copy of, so for me its also kind of like a little memento as well...
