We got this debate before and agreed Steam does the same thing.

I just want to keep and maintain my games on Steam even if i have to use Origin to launch the game.

Keep thread on topic the discussion going.

Sorry for adding to the offtopicness.

Looking forward to how the game looks with the release version. Overall i heard good beta experience so this should be a good launch.

Take the Origin hating to another thread. This one's about BF3. If you want to comment on passing on the game because of Origin, fine, but please ignore the anon troll.

I agree 100% with this thread.

I have both Steam and Origin and have no problems with them. Same with Direct2Drive or a few other gaming services. Anyone who bitches about EA's DRM and yet defends Steam is really a moron as Steam has their own DRM.

I would rather keep everything under one service, but in this day and age, it isn't going to happen. This is why I am not against ordering what I want from whomever has it.

I really cannot wait to start preloading this game. The beta was a hell of a lot of fun.

No its called get smart and learn the facts, your constantly posting false information.
The game just uses a browser front end, for communication and server selection. A number of websites did this for boatloads of games going as far back as the original half-life and counterstrike.

Those who purchase BF3 on any platform will get early access to the Mass Effect 3 multi-player demo in January 2012.

There will be a few others, but those numbers will be very low. When SWTOR was released on Origins, people said they wouldn't play, and yet the game is breaking pre-order records. BF3 pre-order sales have been huge so far too.

I was thinking about staying up until midnight to see if I could start the download, but I am exhausted. Going to wake up tomorrow and kick it off.

I think I am going to pick up Mass Effect 1 and 2 when Steam puts them on sale in December. Two games I wish I played and never did.

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.

Your argument is kind of moot when you put Call of Duty in any context in a post. First off, Call of Duty is a way bigger franchise than Battlefield. CoD comes out with a new game every year where Battlefield, not so much. Of course kids are going to stick with what they know, what did they do this time around with Modern Warfare 3, oh yeah a re-packaged up engine from Modern Warfare 2 and some snazzy new features. At least Battlefield 3 feels like it's a new game, and it's fresh not something I'm going to play for 1 week and then toss aside like Modern Warfare 3.

Awaiting to preload Battlefield 3, hasn't started yet but I'm sure it will soon.

I leave you with this quote - "haters gonna hate".

Good Game Sir!

Sorry, I make it a policy not to visit ANY game's official forums. Stupidity is clearly contagious.

If you are playing MW3 for a week and your done then you sir are not playing the game. You are playing a weak campaign when the beauty of the game has always been pvp.

I can't wait for this game. Some of my happiest moments with a FPS include me and 7 other dudes sitting in an apartment with 8 xboxs going on 100 game win streaks. Good times.

Sorry, I played the hell out of MW2 MP and had a good time, but Black Ops MP was the same thing.

CoD is an arcade/console shooter, BF3 is a game with considerably more depth, opportunity for small unit tactics, and a tiny bit more realism (and jets!).
