Errr... mmk. I'm not sure what to make of that.
If Steam will accept any BF3 key, see ya Origin.

There's no reason for steam to accept any bf3 key.

Only "steam purchased"

On the other hand, origin will accept any BF3 key, as its by EA.

I have a feeling EA will keep BF3 exclusive to Origin initially so that they can bring users to the platform, but once BF3 has lost some steam (no pun intended), I wouldn't be surprised if they released it on Steam to pick up more sales.

Who cares, really? Why do people make such a big deal about Steam. OMG I get to use a third party app to play all my games! I get to pay retail on almost every purchase! STEAM FTW!

Because it's extremely convenient, makes everything much more organized and allows you to manage all your friends (Which is really important for me)

and steam sales are amazing

The only reason for me is that I would like to have all my games in one place instead of using many other apps running in the background. I do not mind using Origins but as I said, I would like to have my games in one spot.
