Don't give them any ideas, this is EA we're talking about

That worries me. Game is due for release late this year, and they are still in early development. Doesn't bode well in my book.

Stopping myself from pre-ordering this early is next to impossible.

Other Internet game sites download retail copies of the game to my HDD while all Steam games are attached to their service.
I like to spread the wealth, I buy from GamersGate, Impluse, D2D, Amazon, Newegg etc. who ever has the best deal. Waiting for Steam to carry a game or place it on sale is like "living in a cave" of gaming to me. Easy isn't always better, the are always strings attached to things being simple. Since I paid for the game, I should be able to do whatever I want with it. It's bad enough that we have the DRM layer which limits the amount of installs, but then to add another layer which I can't even sell the account or games I bought on Steam is not a good idea to me.

It reminds me of the article here:
How publishers punish us for buying new games
http://www.overclock.net/video-game-...us-buying.html
http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2...want-to-do.ars

When Crysis 2 was released, I bought a retail copy from Amazon. When UPS delivered it that morning, it was installed in less than 15 minutes. Others had to wait until a certain time for it to be released on Steam, then deal with slow download speeds. I paid $15 less($45) for better service and a hardcopy which I later sold and got money back since I didn't like the game. If I would have bought it off Steam, I would have been stuck with it and out 60 bucks.

I will be buying a hardcopy of BF3. In this age of console-like PC titles, I'm not going to let these publishers screw me with unsellable digital copies of their trash games.

Lastly I want my purchase to be counted. I support PC gaming and I want the pubs and devs to see that. Buying retail helps retail sells numbers. Digital sales aren't posted which makes PC gaming look pathetic compared to console gaming. Steam releases their numbers to the public when they feel like it even if it can help PC gaming, reinforcing my point of them having too much control over their side of the industry. I can't see how iTunes and Steam are different, they seem to have the same goals. Digital domination.
Great post, specially the first parts.. there is nothing like a hard copy of a game
