Time to pre-order a physical copy for the DLC codes and buy it after release on steam, then sell the boxed copy less the DLC

win/win

If Steam will accept any BF3 key, see ya Origin.
Origin is required for BF3 to launch so it's not see ya Origin.

I've said it before and I'll say it again:

Lets have a 3rd party digital distribution application, so EA doesn't profit, so Activision doesn't profit, so valve doesn't profit, etc just by having more users on it apart from having a good game or two on it.

When i try purchasing through origin, it wants to charge me in euros, and when i tried DD, it said my country was locked.

Seems like i won't be buying BF3 unless it's on steam.

Although I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope this is true,

I'd bet against it.

EA is being EXTREMELY aggressive in its Origin Campaign.

I hope it remains an origin exclusive. I would enjoy being able to join Battlefield friends through origin, and origin isn't required to launch any retail games so far. When I buy 2142 today I'll test with origin bought games.

If this is true, then it will drop on Steam at least a month later than its release date. That's when the preorder DLC is available to everybody.
