Preordered my retail copy 2 days ago. Comes with an A2 sized poster and a little lucky draw to win a BF3 themed 750GB portable hard disk by western digital signed by Patrick Bach.

It seems shady, but its $20 cheaper (if you get limited edition), and I dont have to give Origin my money out of principle.

its legit but also slightly shady and the key you buy may eventually get banned

Wow...that looks pretty nice!

I think that's the way I'm going to go as well. I will be buying the hard copy, and forget downloading it.

However, it can become an issue if the client is draining CPU power, which was the case with Origin during the Battlefield 3 alpha trial.
This is probably why Steam is not getting BF3. I guess EA really want to force it down peoples throat with Origin.

With the number for games coming out this winter it looks like I am going to wait a few months before I buy BF3.

Let them figure out all the bugs etc. and get their proverbial head out of their multifaceted rear end.

Yea i am going to wait it out as well, there are other good games coming out this year that will keep me busy. It is a shame because i was looking forward to BF3, but i wont take part of Origin.
