... I tend to think that the steam versions are making up for less than half the sold copies, so those numbers really aren't indicative of much of anything.

ALL MW2 games have to go through steam. Obviously, not ALL BFBC2 games go through steam.

I tried the game. Fun, arcadey. Not completely my cup of tea.

Is this game a system-killer? I had depth of field on, and everything at highest/extra, and 2xaa on @ 1280x720. I was getting perfect fps in most spots, but on one map it was just terrible down certain alleyways or during certain explosions. Granted, this was on my x3 @ 2.7ghz/4850 rig, but still, dang, WTH?

I preloaded it, the 4 GB. Then when it came out, it said I need to download another 8GB. There would be no way I could play it within this weekend, so I deleted it. Why do they do this? So many people on the forums said they deleted the game cache, and went back to BFBC2. So much for this free weekend.
