We do not have any definite answer, but it increasingly looks like this will be the case, and that EA will bundle BF3 with Origin.

Quote:
To be perfectly clear, these are entirely tentative and as DICE puts it, "do not necessarily represent the requirements for the final game," meaning a significant amount could very well change between now and the beta and then the final launch, thus increasing or lowering these requirements. However, it is useful as at least a vague starting point.

With that said, here's what's advised for the alpha, more or less in line with our previous estimations:
OS: Windows 7 or Vista (SP1)
Installed: Origin
CPU: Quadcore @ 2.0 GHz or faster
RAM: 4GB or more
Hard Drive: 7.25 GB free disk space
Video: 512 MB or greater
DirectX 10 or 11 compatible card with latest drivers (AMD 11.5 or later, nVidia 275.33 or later)
Sound: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible card
Internet: broadband connection

I think it's looking pretty likely also, nothing definitive though.

That makes no difference, because the Alpha requires origin to install from.

For the final game there is no answer.

What does it matter Install it once and never open it again... but all I can say is Battlelog is amazing and Origin ingame is pretty decent (like steam overlay) if you can add soldiers on the spot, then the hell with Steam.

Its not really that big of a deal. Its not like you will have to get rid of STEAM in order to install Origin.

Origin isn't the hellfire that Steam fans are declaring it to be.

It's actually quite lightweight, streamlined... I honestly don't see the problem with it.

No one complained when you installed TF2 you need Steam, same goes for CSS, and hell even Half Life.

Yet EA gives it a whirl and does a great job imo, and everyone starts complaining. Get over it.

This.

It's actually turning out to be a pretty good feature
