After the beta is released for BF3, I don't doubt some people just cancel preorders outright. Not that great of a game. I'll get it when EA pulls their head out of their ass and puts it on Steam and then it goes on sale for 30 bucks or something.

It is EA's right not to put their games on Steam. I'm not defending EA because Origin is a mediocre glorified program launcher anyway, but people need to accept the fact that BF3 is not going to Steam. Heck, MW3 is covering 3/4 of the Steam's main page. That's Valve saying FU to EA.

1-2 months after the release, the hype is gone and the sales peaks in the past. Then it'll suddenly show up on Steam as well.
I dont know they did talk about the restrictiveness of steam I don't think we'll see it on steam... ever. And for those that wont buy it any other way... they may end up buying MW3 just because they can on steam

but it could all end up being a publicity stunt in the end. I mean what PC gamer doesnt know about origin now? it really wouldnt surprise me to see BF3 on steam with a month or 2 after release

That is ALL it is. There is nothing else to it. EA is talking crap about the policies of Steam to try and act like their service is so much better.

well when you are one of the biggest games publishers in the world and you have the means to distribute your own game its seriously weird to pay your sometimes competitor/partner to do what you can do. People dont like it because Valve has cornered the digital games market which has allowed them to develop a system which is highly respected but has not always been. And i dont even think its the steam that people are wild about, they just like having everything in one place

If BF3 wasn't on Steam I'd be fine with it. My problem is the fact that they are lying so badly just to try and promote their own crappy service is the part I think is retarded.

considering Valve made no comment whatsover about EA's claims and Gabe Newell recently started sucking up to them, I see no reason to believe EA is lying about anything. They simply have a set of standards that work for their business model and customer relations, and its up to the distributor to allow them to achieve these goals, or they have no problem distributing themselves

I find it easier if you don't listen or read what these developers say.

Multiplayer reveal trailer....



Not to be childish, but how der f**k do IW/Sledgehammer/Activision think that that POS will compete with BF3....I mean seriously, it looks no different than Black ops/MW2 except they have added a few more gayer unlocks and stupid gadgets that ruin the experience...

Call of Duty MWfail will sell thousands for name only, as a game it looks like a group of monkeys have got together and modded black ops and labelled it MW3....This will be the first time that i do not buy a CoD title..... RIP CoD....
