Agreed.



Anyway.. Hardcore battlefield fanboys will buy the game regardless. I see no problem here

If you think that only "hardcore gamers" that play Battlefield will not be bothered by this; you are wrong. I own every Battlefield game to date, not counting console spinoffs, and I will not hesitate to not buy BF3 if it's ruined by some stupid attempt at creating a new Steam.

Settle down kid. I will not buy this game if I have to use Origin to launch it. Get over it.

I'm not happy seeing people on this website act like BF3 will be the next thing since sliced bread. (Now I'm just waiting for someone to quote that and say "IT IZ LAWLS"). It's gotten to the point to where you can't say anything about anything here without getting flamed by at least one party. Argue amongst yourselves, I won't take part in it anymore.

Battlefield is NOT a Casual game, you have people playing daily and BF3 is getting hyped up for the right reasons like New Frostbite engine, Amazing DX11, Customizeability, Broad range of Guns/Vehicles/Tools.

1: We won't miss you.
2: If you think BF3 is casual, I'm guessing you think Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is casual. (Just a comparison between two very realistic games)
3: Beta's not out yet.
4: You may hold your opinions but the facts overpower opinions.

I have BF3 pre-ordered for a few months now. I bought retail version so it didn't matter to me that it wasn't on Steam. But it does matter that both EA and Steam are being childish over a game and services. I think some game companies prefer to have their games on Steam, that means they don't have to do hardly anything except update the game as Steam will push the updates/VAC etc.

Also, i doubt BF3 will have to Origin running, will just need to open it to update the game etc. I bought Alice: Madness returns retail and it uses Origin but you don't need it open to launch or play the game.

Beta? You mean the Alpha?

That had only a single map on a game mode introduced by the Bad Company series?

And had the vast majority of weapons.vehicles,maps,attachments,gadges,everythin g hidden away from us?

So a bad company game mode, felt similar to playing bad company? You dont say?

Credibility removed.

I could care less, I would still buy BF3 if, there was no online retailer, and even if the only retailer was out of state, this game will be pure win.

Like a previous poster said, hardcore fans of the series will not truly care.

Iff you think I was only referring to hardcore gamers you are wrong.
FYI, there is a retail version of the game. You don't have to choose the more inconvenient method.

Origin offers a pre-load option just so you know.

OT: I don't like not being able to get it from steam but as long as I don't have product validation problems like I did trying to get Dead Space 2...then I'll suck it up and get it off Origin.
Although BF3 might take a small hit in sales it probably wont be enough to make EA care.
