Yep. How annoying. I really wish that EA would just put their games on Steam.

Even though it is annoying, why would they put it on Steam? They know that people will buy it regardless if it's on Steam or not and they just created their Origin online store. What better way to market their new store against Steam and all of the other online retailers than make BF3 digital download exclusive on it. Looking from their point-of-view it's a great business move as they are not going to lose customers either way.

Maybe you're right. I don't know. But I'm seeing it from a customer's perspective, and it makes it annoying to have Steam running so you can communicate with your Steam friends at the same time you have Origin running to do the same thing. It just adds to more crap you have going on at one time. Takes away from simplicity (in my personal opinion). I would hate buying games from two opposing stores also. Steam is already legit, and having everything in one centralized location is very convenient and is the point of it... to me that isn't about business competition. I think EA should focus on the games themselves rather than an online store when there already is one.

Just buy it, install it, close origin (forever) add it as non steam game and communicate with your people again.

Good point. However, I disagree with the quote in your signature about CoD winning in terms of gameplay =P

Screw it guys. I ordered a GTX 570 this morning. I decided I'd be better off selling my 4870X2 now for $150-$200 and buying the GTX570 for $330 after rebate, rather than waiting and risking my 4870X2 value dropping below $100 with the GTX570 price staying pretty level or barely lower. Worst case scenario come BF3, I'll sell my GTX570 for an upgrade or just get a second one for cheap. My 4870X2 just wasn't doing it for me in BC2 anyways; I had to run in DX9 for best performance, and couldn't even turn on HBAO.

There are a few things that I wish I could see in Battlefield 3.

Sliding, Evading Rolls and The Sonic Boom.

Sliding into cover during a sprint
Rolling left or right

And of course..

watching a jet break the sound barrier.. ....would be...awesome.

All of those are in BF3 except for the rolling; I don't think they've mentioned that yet. You do slide into cover out of a sprint though, and when you sprint jump across gaps you see a parkour-like player animation.
