I was going to say the same thing...

But it's a lie. I will miss it. It's people like me they are doing this to try and affect.

I'm just going to buy it on Xbox, which is a bummer for this particular game but hey, at least it's more enjoyable and active as far as friends go

I too will be taking a pass on this game. I already have one download service to worry about in Steam. I don't need my game collection location fragmented.

I love these comments. I still find Steam redundant. I will always take a physical copy over a DL version all day long. If Im paying $50-$60 for a game I want more than just a stinking download.

Not me. Why the hassle of a DVD?

A download is the best. I don't even rent DVD or Blu-rays anymore.

I think hate discs.

Is origin really that bad?

Are you serious about buying it for Xbox rather than playing it through origin? 32 players, 720p, full of MW fanboys, and if it's anything like BC2, the community (on console) will be dead within a year e.g no players because everyone of them will be stroking to MW3?

I can't play FPS on console, it just doesn't feel right and the quality is not there. But hey, if origin is really that bad then XBL is a pretty good option.

QQ baby.

I <3 steam.

But some of you freaks are so hardcore about STEAM...

Yet Origin lets you install straight to SSD or normal HDD. Lets you keep installer file for backup use, and can be closed with most games.

QQ more! plz! QQ MORE!!!!!!!!!!

Not coming to Steam? Good. I've had nothing but issues with Steam since the beginning and I quit using them almost from the start. I purchased Empire Total War and ended up having to deal with CS for over a week before I could ever even see the Tutorial for the game because of an issue with the key. Their CS was short and hardly ever answered any questions.

I'll go pick up the game via HardCopy - Done. Problem Solved. No hassle.

Trolling titles should be removed or changed. BF3 will probably show up on steam a few weeks after release. With the patching required for most games these days I refuse to pre order anymore.
