It's official, no Steam preload. STEAM = FAIL. Why would you NOT preload this kind of game?

It looks like the game unlocks/starts downloads at 3PM CST tomorrow.

Well, it's up now.

I don't wanna see that stuff until I've played it myself.

Yeah I went the stingingvelvet's way in this one and preordered through a retail store. I'm waiting for a text message which will inform me that it has arrived and ready to be picked up.

And we get a cool bf:bc2 tshirt to boot!

No preload for a game of this magnitude is weird. But as long as it doesn't bog down the servers too much it shouldn't be too big of a deal.

If you play online and register your key it has no disc check, so the difference from Steam will be minimal.

Plus even with a preload it will not be unlocked until far later than stores open.

WHY are people talking about no preload being weird? Steam never freaking does preloads!
