They should have waited until AFTER the game launched to do this

Now people can just cancel their pre-order and will get it on steam instead

An Origin account, yes. That doesnt mean they would have to have the client running since everything would be done through battlelog anyway.s

Who's to say that requirement can't be patched and removed though? Since Steam has its own authentication, I see no reason for Steam to be forced to launch Origin to then start BF3. You CAN currently play the beta without Origin. You just need Origin to update any game files. Steam would take over that task.

This really isn't a problem for me, and I don't see why it would bother so much of OCN. With 8 gigs of RAM and a 2500k one extra program doesn't really matter to me, to me.

For me, it is quite simple: as long as it involves Origin, I will not buy it. Nothing against Dice or the game, but I refuse to use another distribution client, especially one by EA.
