EA has confirmed it will not be showing up on Steam, from EA's official Twitter:



I agree that it is a stupid move to do such a thing considering how large the platform is among gamers, they're missing out. Also i think the reason why they only moved Crysis 2, Dragon Age II etc is because they were new titles, they just aren't putting any more of their titles on Steam anymore from that point on. And i believe DLC, updates etc was in fact the reason why they are pulling out.
Fuck Twitter. And Alice came out after both of those games. Its on Steam and there was no problem with it being on there. In fact, I believe it came out later than other retailers as well.

Either way I am getting this game. I want it through Steam, but I will buy it from someone else last minute if I need to.

Nope, his name is Karok...
Being from Cali you have to see the similarities. They could be twins. Doubt he is as ripped as Vernon, but the face looks just like him. I am so ready for football. Oh and BF3 :D

a headshot is only worth a 10% bonus and killing an entire enemy squad nets you a +10? If I single handedly kill an entire squad (500 points for the kills), you really think only 10 points is going to make me feel like a badass for doing it?

Screw that. 300 points for a knife kill? Thats going to make Reayth and Kurgan ejaculate. Its gonna look like the "Jets" vs the "Sharks" out there.

hooooold up! I cbf reading through 90 pages of this thread, but 300 points for knifing? I hope that is to compensate for the longer time it takes to knife someone in the game due to realistic animations and I hope players are not invincible during the animation either also there is a chance to be countered which further extends the time you knife someone..

They are not invincible. I got shot to death during the animation. You can still "quick knife" but to get the sequences you have to knife like a pro. Quick knife only seems to work for breaking things. I tried to quick knife someone and it did nothing.

Perhaps they are trying to minimize the "rambo" mode people may get into trying to kill an entire squad. Perhaps they are trying to emphasize Team work.

Planet Battlefield - Battlefield 3 Conquest & Jets at Gamescom

Monday, 8 August, 2011 at 15:38 PST | ^Scott^ | Print News
The upcoming German gaming convention, Gamescom is quickly approaching and Battlefield 3 is expected to have a big presence. According to a tweet by DICE's Karl-Magnus Troedsson it looks like we will be seeing some of the first conquest gameplay at Gamescom. There is also a very good chance we will see jets. A video posted by BF-Game.net's Blond3r shows a MiG-21 jet being rolled into the Battlefield 3 booth. Gamescom starts August 17th and runs through the 21st.

arstechnica.com - Editorial: What EA will lose if Battlefield 3 remains off Steam

By Ben Kuchera

Plenty of PC gamers sit down each night without knowing what they want to play. Instead, they log into their Steam accounts, see what other people are playing, then jump into a multiplayer game. In many cases, they buy widely played games simply to be part of the community, or based on positive reviews from friends. Steam isn't just a store, it's also a meeting place. EA may have good reasons for keeping Battlefield 3 away from Valve's service, but the company is still going to lose out in goodwill—and possibly in sales.

Stardock estimated that Steam held 70 percent of the digital distribution market at the end of 2009, and it's likely that estimate remains accurate; what other services have stepped up to chip away at Steam's dominance? Steam is the market leader when it comes to selling PC games online, and gamers are largely comfortable with the service and with their place in it. While many argue that, like EA's own digital distribution service Origin, Steam started out in rough shape and only improved over time, the fact remains that Origin is fighting a service that is rock-solid right now.

Growing pains are over for Valve, and the company has built an amazing amount of goodwill with PC gamers. The facts of the skirmish between EA and Valve are purely secondary at this point; what matters is that PC gamers have many reasons to trust Valve, and just as many reasons to distrust EA. One of these companies gave indie developers a home to sell their games and find success, while the other placed DRM into our vocabulary during Spore's release.

When gamers think of Valve, they remember the last game they bought at deep discount during one of the platform's many sales. They think of all the friends they have on the platform, and the games they've been given or have gifted to others. They meet up with people online to play games because they know people will be on Steam when they want to play.

When gamers think of EA, they remember fighting with redemption codes to get their Dragon Age content or having to set up another account to play a game online. They think of DRM. EA can make well-reasoned arguments about why it won't put up with Valve's DLC requirements all day long and it won't matter: the company has not put in the legwork to make friends with the PC gaming community.

This entire debate can be boiled down to the simple fact that people already use Steam, they like Steam, and they resent being forced to set up an account with another service to play a game. This is especially true when it's a brand-new, untested storefront that's being driven by a company that has given PC gamers every reason to be skeptical. It's unclear if Battlefield 3 will be enough of a draw to make customers forget that fact.

For many gamers, Steam is PC gaming and, while threats of a boycott often seem hollow, in this case it will be as if the game simply doesn't exist for many Steam users.

As much as I would like this to be true I must call bullshit. People are going to FLOOD Origin just to play BF3 despite all the whining and crying. Does it suck? Sure. But I ain't gonna even pretend Ill not install the bullshit just so I can play BF3.....however I wont buy it FROM Origin. I at least have a choice who I take my rape from. At least with Gamestop I have something to show for the violent anal attack. A nice hard copy of the game. Origin will not get my digital bucks.

I still think that they are over-exaggerating when they say that there is no setup/rig that can max it out. Yes the game does look very good and GPU/CPU intensive but still I think GTX 580 SLI and an i7-2600 @ 4.5 can max it out.
You would certainly think so. Man I get tired of getting games I have to keep building around so often. I just got BFBC2 where I can do that with it :wtf:
I ain't building another rig for awhile. I have 2 descent ones. Just upping GPU power for the next year.

I agree with MM. The first sentence of that editorial starts off on the wrong foot cause come November I am going to know exactly what I am going to feel like playing when I sit down and it apparently will involve using Origin. Unfortunate, yes. Deal breaker? Not even close.

I already preordered from Amazon anyway.

BY: zh1nt0 POSTED : Aug 09, 2011, 01:29PM

The Battlefield team needs you! 14 QA Testers required for 3 months working on BF3

Although video game testing can be fun and rewarding, it is hard work. We are looking for responsible, dependable candidates who have an eye for detail, great work ethics, excellent verbal and written communications skills, and the ability to work in a team environment. We need people who are able to work a flexible schedule as work days may vary from week to week. There will be overtime opportunities.

Required Skills:
- Self starter
- Good organisational skills
- Strong verbal and written communication skills
- Basic to advanced software troubleshooting skills
- Ability to remain focused until project completion

Desired skills:
- Experience and understanding of console or PC game testing
- Software troubleshooting

If you are looking for an opportunity to contribute to the Imminant Battlefield 3 and work with one of the best teams in the Gaming world please apply to the position with a latest copy of your cv. This role is onsite in Stockholm due to the short nature of the contract we are only considering candidates who can work onsite and are able to come to work without relocation support.

We are not considering overseas or remote applications.

All applicants should email their CV’s too jobs@dice.se

Fuck Twitter. And Alice came out after both of those games. Its on Steam and there was no problem with it being on there. In fact, I believe it came out later than other retailers as well.

Either way I am getting this game. I want it through Steam, but I will buy it from someone else last minute if I need to.
There are multiple reports of EA confirming it's not coming to Steam, sorry. EA speaking with Kotaku:
Kotaku said:
"Battlefield 3 will not be available on Steam as the service restricts our ability to directly support players," an EA spokesperson told Kotaku. "The service limits our ability to deliver patches and downloadable content directly to players.

As i said, it's still possible, but not likely unless Valve caves in at the last moment. And that is a good point about Alice, forgot that series existed.

You would certainly think so. Man I get tired of getting games I have to keep building around so often. I just got BFBC2 where I can do that with it :wtf:
I ain't building another rig for awhile. I have 2 descent ones. Just upping GPU power for the next year.
BC2 came out 1.5 years ago though. Usual rule I go by to play maxed out (or close), is at least a new videocard a year, and a new CPU every other. That is if you are buying the good stuff when you do buy.

As i said, it's still possible, but not likely unless Valve caves in at the last moment. And that is a good point about Alice, forgot that series existed.
Wouldn't expect it, there is no reason for them too. Maybe if this was just about BF3, then they would. But EA wants to deliver the patches to games on Steam, which means most likely every single EA game to release from here on out will expect the same. Which yes people will move to Origin to buy these triple A titles like SW:TOR and BF3 that are coming out right now (thats why they chose now to pull this). But maintaining their stance means no games coming to Steam ever, and when Steam sells 70% of PC games, it's a pretty stupid move.

**EDIT**
Perfect example is, I just bought the Indie Bundle #2, and the swaying decision was the fact that it had keys on Steam. I didn't really want to remember that site. A long time ago I won a free copy of Trine from someone on here at some random site (I don't even remember where now). I redeemed it, played it a bit, but I have since forgotten the site as it had nothing else I wanted. Using 2 or 3 popular methods isn't bad, but it just gets to be a lot to remember.

When the games are new, those that are going to buy are going to buy. But once they are older, people are not going to pick up Origin just to get them, I know a ton of people who just got BC2 when it last went on sale. And thats where it's going to hit EA. Most of my over 200 Steam games were bought on sales, and a lot of EA titles are in there.

Anyway, I'm eagerly waiting for some jet gameplay footage.
