Well to be realistic a lot of peeps said no Steam = no buy as a way to pressure EA to put it on Steam, but now that they dropped the hammer and it's no use, guess I'll just have to buy it on Origin or something. Bastards.

Hey you guys! It said "as well as over 100 digital retailers worldwide including" Just cause they didn't list it doesn't mean it's not there.

The site with the full list is down.

I don't think they showed Steam so that non-steam users didn't choose steam, because it would've been one of the many in the 100. It'd be stupid to not have steam.

i'll buy it on retail
i just hope retail doesn't force you to install origin tho

evrfighter2714d ago

it's going to make you install Origin. That's a guarantee.


don't be a statistic on their meeting to discuss on how well it did. Buy retail

No STEAM.....that sucks!

But this just may be No limited edition on Steam!
I just can't see EA going to war with Steam by not putting BF3 on Steam. I'm sure it will be on Steam after the initial 3 month period.

If not then EA is gonna have to create one hell of a library and start pulling in other games from different publishers and Indie Devs and build a community of over 30 million gamers to fully compete with Steam.

Although BF3 and The Frostbite Engine 2.0 is a good start....Once Episode 3 hits along with Source Engine 2.0 (Counter Strike 2) I feel Valve along with Steam will take gaming to another level.

maaannn, sorry to break this to EA, but no Steam=less sales.

i stand by this statement.

I know people that have said if they don't put it on Steam, they aren't buying it. Stupid, stupid move EA.

ATiElite2715d ago

No Steam = less Sales is right

But I'm not gonna be stupid enough to not buy it. BF3 is PC Gaming just like Minecraft, Starcraft, and Half Life.

I planned on buying a retail copy anyway so this doesn't effect me but with EA pulling punk moves like this i think in the future i may have to say no to Origins.

I hate companies that just try to persuade a community how it should function. Steam is what gamers love so EA should just give us what we want and not try to dictate.

SixZeroFour2715d ago

sure, no steam = less sales...thats a given, its like saying, an xbox game not on ps3 = less sales or vice versa

the question is, does less sales = less quality of a game?

To bad no steam. I will just be getting mine on amazon! I will pm you about how awsome it is!

I guess it will be my 2nd game outside of steam! I got The Witcher 2 on gog..

I will survive with out steam for those two games..

solar2715d ago (Edited 2715d ago )

i love how EA wants to give gamers options to buy BF3, yet doesnt give us the best option with Steam. i will buy the game retail, as i refuse to aid EA in their stupidity of not offering the game on Steam and justifying why they are not with lies.

less of a cut for EA
