Regardless of where i buy a game, i play it on my PC. Steam is agreed upon service as every other online retailer service is. Steam might have the monopoly, but i buy where i can get the best deals, and it usually isnt steam.
you're definitely looking at the wrong times then, because ive seen and have been fortunate enough to take part in many of steams deals..

makes sense. saving money is saving money =/. t hey are very few games that im actually willing to shell out for and im patient enough to watch and wait and cease at the best time, which is interesting because generally i have absolutely no patience..

i'm doing the same thing for bf3, watching and waiting untimately id love to buy it from steam, but as time goes on and i can get HARD evidence stating it won't be available ill snap it up from origin

Just out of curiosity, if BF3 never goes steam, would those of you all hyped about a steam release still buy it if it only supported Origin?

I'll buy the store hard copy. If there is an origins emblem on the back and the game forces me to install origins to play it I am buying skyrim elder scroll and forgetting about BF3 for good. I don't even trust origins. I am under the impression that when I pay full price for a game I am buying the game and not renting it. You can't shut people's accounts down after 2 years of no logins or BS like that. There Terms of Agreement seem pretty ridiculous to me.

While that won't be happening, somehow I doubt taking 2 minutes to install EADM/Origins would stop you from taking part in the awesomeness that is BF3. Why are you so willing to install steam?

its been here for years, people have already created firends list, groups, joined communities have all their games on steam. to have to start over ALL of that with origins is a big problem for people

Thread Starter 
You can add a non-steam game and enjoy everything that Steam has to offer in any game. Besides the few steamworks games that allow people to join eachother, there is no difference.

Honestly.. you are the weirdest person I've ever seen. Go ahead and play your skyrim crap if you are too lazy to install origin and never open it again....

You don't trust Origin (so you pretty much don't trust EA?) go find urself some other stupid excuses please... you don't trust the people that give the games to Steam.... lolwat?

"you cant shut peoples accounts down after 2 years of no logins"

What you can't login once in 2 years? Dude you are RIDICULOUS! I've been playing Diablo 2 for years and if you don't log there for 90 days your character gets deleted, is it so hard for you to open something and login for 1 sec in 2 YEARS?

"If there is an origins emblem on the back and the game forces me to install origins to play it I am buying skyrim elder scroll and forgetting about BF3 for good"

You actually thought someone would believe you? You are here talking all the time about this game, obviously excited the same way we are... yet you think you gonna fool someone.

My god.. find yourself more excuses. It wont be coming on steam (obviously, since they removed Crysis 2)

1. Install Origin (Takes 1 minute or less)
2. Install the game
3. Remove Origin
4. Open Steam
5. Add Non-Steam Game
6. Still talk to your community friends or whatever the hell
7. ????????????????????????????????
8. Profit.

Some console footage I guess! Not like any of us cares (I kinda do) I am really curious how it looks on consoles. BF3 shown on Consoles
