Has to be pretty heavy file compression. That'd be the only way it's that small of a download

Me needing Origin to play BF3 thats going to turn off alot of players.

I highly doubt anyone will be turned off by that except you.

Read the forums over at EA and those that canceled this bs because they're refusing to use Origin and that's just one site!

i don't want 2 programs inorder to play BF3.it should be just like any other game press icon and play.

Btw COD Its breaking records on sells.

and now ur waiting for ur origin pre-order too?

LOL

funny post is funny.

ps: i gawk around EA official forum alot. ever since BETA is out, i rarely see anyone cancelling their preorder on any reason. especially becoz of Origin. i guess most people learn to adapt.
(not a big BattleFacebook fan myself, just sayin)

I didn't even wait for the email. I launched Origins and started the download.

EDIT: It really doesn't matter though. 10.1 gig won't take 4 days to download anyway. I could have started the preload on Saturday or Sunday and had enough time to get the whole game.

That's why Origin sucks they can't get things Correct, people are waiting on their Pre-download nothing and you wonder why alot of people dont want Origin!

I can tell you Day 1 System crash its always been like this in-regards to Dice/EA,if that doesn't happen i would be surprised as hell.

That launch trailer is quite honestly one of the most elegant and well put together trailers I've seen in quite some time. The video, the audio, and the gameplay of this thing looks absolutely amazing. Too bad Dice has an agreement with EA to publish this beauty instead of a deal with Valve for instance. They could've probably had more sales lol...

In any case, my shitty 8600GT on my laptop falls below their minimum specs, and my processor alone is probably not good enough, so it's time for me to start thinking of building a new desktop

Well this is odd. I right clicked my download in Origin and looked at the game details. Download manual was an option so I went ahead and did it, and I got just the epilepsy warning in 23 different languages.

I think that randomness calls for one last hurrah with BFBC2 before the game launches Tuesday.

Grabbed mine from Amazon.
Unfortunately their "download app" didn't let me designate where I could download the file to. Sooooo, after I got about 75% the download failed b/c by default it downloads to my C: drive.
I had to download the Amazon Games and Software Downloader which does allow you to point to a specific folder. I figured I could just copy what I've already downloaded over to a different drive and point the downloader there. NOPE! When I did that, the downloader tried to extract the file instead of pick up where it left off.

I have never tried Amazon's download service to be honest. Its a bummer that you had some issues.

I can tell you that the Origin download was flawless for me. Downloaded without a problem at all for me. I am ready for October 25th.

Been gaming for years but never prepared so much for one game...New mouse "Cyborg Rat 5" and a "Razer nostromo" that kicks-ass.

This was my first experience with Amazon's service as well. If Origin had offered the Limited Edition for $42 like Amazon, I'd have just gotten it through them. Heck, maybe they did and I just missed it.

i was rockin BF2 with Belkin Nostromo n52. its nice to see Razer bought the product, put pretty light, slap their logo, and voila, $30 more expensive

my only complain? not enough button. so i map the thumb-directional as 1-4 for weapons, and the Enter button as map.
