And it isn't gonna stand in my way either. I was just saying, try to understand, not everyone wants to have it running in the background. I get it.

Unfortunately, this. A purchase of BF3 at the moment is a stamp of approval that you don't mind Origin being required for every EA game from here on out. I'd love to buy the game but I can't support this move by EA.

I just hope EA improves origin by the time BF3 comes out. What I like about steam was that I could use the voice chat with multiple friends at once while gaming without having to use any third party programs. Too lazy to join a server and find out IP to join their team speak channel..etc.

95% of people who say they won't buy BF3 because of Origin will end up buying BF3 anyway.

True story.

Same reason I make my own coffee instead of going to Starbucks every morning. Yeah, I have five figures in my checking account...because I don't blow 10 dollars on every damn cup of coffee I drink, movie I watch, or whatever.



I stopped playing Valve games, except the rare occasion when I've tried them on a buddy's computer, when Steam was implemented. No regrets.
Eh, I would not at all compare buying a cup of Starbucks every day as opposed to making your own cup of coffee + saving money to be anywhere close to running one extra program on your computer that consumes 1% or less of your total system memory. But I digress.

Well the times, they are a changin'. You're absolutely in the minority now - digital distribution is pretty much the norm for the PC gaming industry and Steam's been leading that push for years now. Hate to say it, but unfortunately, as hardware progresses and digital distribution continues to evolve, your view on using services like Steam or Origin are either going to have to change, or you'll just force yourself from enjoying some amazing gaming experiences that are going to be exclusive to these download services - starting with Battlefield 3. And if you hold true to your non-conformist stance, kudos to you, but Steam or Origin is not enough of a reason for me to shy away from a game I want to play - after all, it's the game I care about, not the launcher.

If it's an absolute hit (unless DICE completely misses the mark here), it probably goes up from 95% to 99.8%.

Ehhhhh definitely not happy about it, my BFBC2 is a retail version and i couldn't be happier about it.
I kinda hoped i can do the same with BF3 no Steam no Origin.
I guess ill have to bite the bullet here , there is no way I'm missing out on BF3.
Damn you EA you win this time.

Don't care as long as it doesn't cap my framerate to 50. The only thing I hate is... Origin thinks I'm in Spain and keeps on sending me to the Spanish EA store that's just plain stupid I can't even change my country/region it makes me mad

PS: If anyone knows how to change that please tell meeeee!!!!1one

Wait a few months or so, the internets should be filled with problems from Origin.

Plus, you barely ever see comments like "Oh, Steam is so easy to use and cheap!". You always get the bad comments "NOOOO I can't log on to my account! THIS IS ALL STEAMS FAULT".

Wonder why.
