Damn, it's probably not going to be on Steam.
At this point I doubt it. Thats why I am waiting to hear on the pre-purchases packs from brick and mortar stores. I don't want digital from EA.
I'll be doing the same thing, lets hope each retailer gives us some good stuff packed in.
This also means that i'll have to find a spare IDE cable for my crappy CD drive.

New Battlefield Blog post: Late Night
And here I thought it was all about the Pentiums.
I have a couple dozen buried around : ) I'm sure it shouldn't be that hard right ?
New Battlefield Blog Post: Physical Warfare Pack available to all Battlefield 3 players later this year
At one point i was thinking about getting this game on PS3.
I know i have a few of them, they're just not organized or in one specific place sadly.
When I pre-order Battlefield 3, it is not because I believe in DICE. They will forever have my hatred for lying to my face and then ignoring me. When I pre-order it will be because I like Battlefield despite them.
What did Dice do wrong?
I still haven't preordered BF3 yet, but i will eventually because love both Dice and their games personally.
I need to stop joking about that. I have nothing against Dice or EA. Like any company I follow due to using a product from them, there have been decisions I thought were kinda "Why would you do that?"
The issue I joke about was a contest their UK PR guy had going a while back. If you were the first ten people to stab him in Bad Company 2 and prove it on their forums, he was suppose to send you a real dog tag. I was the 3rd and they never sent me anything. Never got contacted and literally any contact with them to inquire about it is meet with harshly being ignored.
I let it go a while back, but its fun to randomly bring it up like I hold a grudge cause its funny to me.
So nothing against EA or DICE. I might have to tighten that guy up if I catch him in a bar if I go to the UK though.....on principle.
why are you guys complaining still about this anti steam stuff from EA? Just buy a physical copy. I dont see the problem.
On a side note, did anyone watch the late night with Jimmy Fallon BF3 thing? It was PS3 gameplay. The PC definitely looks better thats for sure.
Well maybe ppl don't want the physical copy, like me.
what's to not want about it? its the same game. You can't take 5 seconds to plop a disk into a tray and play it? personally since BF3 is going to be such a bad ass game id rather have a physical copy, instead of it being tied to a digital distributer.
If the physical copy requires you to install Origins on your machine, I don't see how that solves the problem. The issue isn't that BF3 is going to be released on Origins, but rather that is appears it is only going to be released via Origins.
My 2.5 year old son devours any cd he can get his hands on. I would much rather have all of my games digital for fear of them being destroyed. He's a good kid, but he likes to help me with computers and cars, so when he sees cd's laying around he tried to help out (and it usually doesn't help), or he gets distracted by shinies and runs it through all the dirt on the floor.
And since I have over 150 games through Steam, I would just rather have it their for simplicity.
I understand Steam if comfy and all but generally monopoly is never good on the long run. Imagine it may end up like with windows. Firsts its all nice and full of features and after a few years you can't play your games on any diffrent OS.
I personally like steam for its features and hate them for pricing politics. Games are mostly more expensive than their hard copy's. I don't know if its still true with 1$=1Euro at steam but it was extremely annoying.
I'm 100% sure Origin will allow you to DL the game if you have a legit hard copy. EA wants to compete with Steam not prison you with BF3 with it. Even if it wont you can always get an ISO image off net and use it with your legit key. I did that with most games cause I hated the Polish language versions.
This is my fear. I don't wanna be a beta tester for yet another digital manager app.
Maybe in Europe thats true, but almost any new release is 10% off for games, and older titles being massively discounted, it's almost always cheaper for me to use Steam.
Yup. Steam is a g-d sent for me. I have two small children and a cat that all seem to have a GPS guiding them to my expensive positions. Once they arrive it apparently tells them to play with the positions (lay on them if its the cat) and later destroy them.
I think its called the "Bust your dads stuff up GPS: By TomTom"
Damn you got kids too?
10 new images.
Battlefield 3 PS3 version on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Wow...those images are AMAZING. For a moment I thought it was a real person on a green screen.
"Why would anyone expect that console would look the same as PC? if that was the case we would have failed with the PC version."
Oh yeah, take my money. Take it NOW!
