Just wanted to point out the contradictory statement made here.

My point is that there is nothing special about Steam. There's no reason why every single game made should be on Steam. If you don't want to buy a game because it's not on Steam, that's fine, but to actually have this reaction because it's not on Steam is literally laughable.
As a consumer I want a choice. I don't care if it's on Origin or not, I want it available on a Platform that I've bought a previous version of the game on. Steam works for me, I own BC2 on Steam, and I would like to own BF3 on that SAME account. Why is that so hard to understand?

As stated, we're NOT against DICE, we are against the removal of the ability to purchase through steam when it was available before. I don't get all the fighting.

I think there was a weekend sale after a few months and then a price drop after almost half a year later.

This is what I dont get.

Its not like console games where a metal gear Nintendo exclusive suddenly becomes a Playstation exclusive, suddenly becomes early DLC for 360.

The platform hasn't changed at all.

Sure you can want as much as your heart can want, but since when has that kind of want successfully overturned a business who are trying to create a new avenue of profit?

I want GT5 to be on 360 so I can have Forza and GT5 on one system and not have to buy a seperate wheel for the PS3 but so what?

I dont get where people think that they are owed more than the game itself?

What incentive do you give EA to halt their plans for pushing and expanding on their download service in terms of social interaction with arguably their biggest team oriented (social) game of this century?

Its like having a rack that only holds Jewel CD/DVD cases, hearing that BF3 will only be coming in DVD sized cases and deciding not to buy the game (you KNOW you want), simply because you cant store the BF3 case in your rack with all the other jewel cases.

The game experience is the same regardless of whether you take it from your rack or pick it up from wherever you put the DVD sized case, but not being able take it out of a jewel case is going to stop you buying the game you've been anticipating?

If you were truly interested in the game in the first place, I literally just don't understand how this could be "the" deal breaker.

Not trying to put people down as much as I'm saying:

A- Sense of entitlement is too much to the point where a (relatively) tiny group of people think EA would turn down profits/ability to get loads of potential customers accessing their new service, to suit their arguably trivial niggles.

B- Not wanting to buy a game you are interested in playing because the program you have to use to launch it isn't "right" is just strange imo.

Devs shouldn't concentrate on PC anymore. Seems like a waste of time and money from a business perspective.
When a user base can't be satisfied no matter what you do, it's time to move on.

Dude this is the internet, rationality and intelligence go out the window.

The desires of PC gamers have always been consistent:

- Dedicated servers for massive online FPS for as much ping/latency equality as possible as well as their admins to help regulate servers against cheaters, since cheat detection tools suck
- Higher resolution texture packs since PC's can actually handle it
- Control mapping that is obviously not simply ported over from a console
- Preferably some modding tools, but typically not a deal breaker for most
- Reasonable DRM measures so legitimate end users will not be punished

Again, the user base that is forgoing this purchase has no beef (well most of us do not) with DICE. What we do have an issue is with this new download client that EA is forcing down our throats. Some of us refuse to use it and therefore will not buy the game. You can keep on saying about how "unreasonable" or "trivial" that mindset is and honestly it doesn't matter what you say. There are lots of reasons we do not want to use Origin:

- It is made by EA
- It is another client service we have to install on our computer systems, one that currently uses 30% resources apparently
- It is another username and password we have to remember now
- Another client server that could possibly be hacked into, fail, or stop working

Again, I will stress that I am not saying that Origin, BF3, or Dice are bad in any way. I am sure that BF3 will turn out to be a great game and wholeheartedly wish its buyers to enjoy the game completely. I will also simply not buy it until there is away to avoid Origin and if not, oh well, not the first game I passed on nor will it be the last.
