[Battlefield03] Battlefield 3 – Steam Boycott Confirmed by Gamestop - Page 10  

post #91 of 207
I'm never going to support Origin.
This might be the only game I will actually buy at the store with a retail copy.
Retarded EA.
Steam ftw.

I had never even heard of Origin until a few days ago...

GameStop a console meca is now interested in PC games?
I wouldn't buy it from them because when i went there to buy a PC game they had like one little shelf with like 3 crappy games.
I find it kinda weird on how they are willing to lose tons of money by having to make more store copy's with all the packaging costs and not have it on steam.

If it requires Origin I'm going to rage. I refuse.
post #95 of 207
i thought it was already confirmed it requires Origin to play but Origin doesnt actually need to be running, or something along those lines?

PS3? What a huge waste of time. BF3 will be horrid on that platform (same to failbox) and not worth the time! Can't even play 64 player maps on console...lol much?
M.A.G. says Hi

On topic though, gonna be getting this on CD most likely then. I haven't bought a cd copy of a game since like 2004. If it requires Origin to play, then i guess I will have to deal with it. Not happy that it's coming down to having to run multiple 3rd party programs to run my games.

One good thing to look forward to is the fact that someone will likely code a shell .dll for the game so you can patch it and not have to run it along with Origin. It still makes the game legit, just removes the need for a program.

Origin does not work like Steam. Origin is pretty much a marketplace, and even though you can install it you do not need it in order to play a game. It doesn't really interact with games like Steam, it is simply informs people of Origin prices and deals. Even SWTOR, which will be exclusive to Origin (at least initially), will not require you to have Origin installed on your computer. The game's servers take care of validation, patches, etc, not Origin.

BF3 is available on multiple download sites, and I am not aware of any requirement to work with Origin at all. Most of that is rumor and people familiar with Steam based games that require Steam even if you didn't buy it through Steam.

At least that is the way I understand it from all the talk about SWTOR exclusive to Origin.

Oh, and grow up, by the way.
You seem like the one that needs to grow up. You're acting like far more of a child than one who won't buy a game because it's not available at the outlet he prefers to shop at. It can be called brand loyalty, desire for convenience, or I'm sure many other things. Just because he shares different values than you, does NOT make him a PMSing child.

Go away.

Sure, sometimes new games on Steam are cheaper than retail but generally speaking new releases are the same price, regardless of retail or digital.

It's just sheer laziness that they can't be bothered walking or driving to a store to get it.

And if you mean to tell me you would rather not buy a game you want because its not on Steam than to just get a freakin hard copy, they you sir are an idiot (Not directed at you Jordan44, just a general statement)
I don't mind going to the store. I'm unorganized and can't keep track of my CD's though. I don't know where half my old games went after moving, all my Steam games are still there, still being very convenient.

MAG failed so bad. That was one of the worst games i have ever played. Period.

FPS is not good on console. It was never intended to be on console. Unfortunately some jerk-offs found that 12 year old kids like playing it, probably because they don't know any better, and not its spiralled out of control.

And we are suffering.
