Battlefield 3 Will Require Origin

It seems yes is the answer to the question of whether Battlefield 3 will require the use of EA's new Origin service, even for users who purchase a physical copy of DICE's upcoming military shooter sequel. A question on Twitter directed at Global Battlefield Community Manager Daniel Matros asked "If we get the DVD version of BF3 do we still have to use Origin?" This was followed by another attempt, asking: "What about the rumors spreading on the forums that we need origin to play BF3 if we have the DVD?" These inspired the following reply: "Yes those 'rumors' are true :)." Thanks Teddy via BF3Blog.

Not buying

Yes you will.

And anyone else here screaming "I wont buy your stuffs EA!" Is a fuckin liar too.
You'll do whatever they tell you to do in order to play your shiny new BF3 and you'll like it. Stop lying to yourself.

Now, for those of you who actually man up and grow a pair, and keep your credit card in check on day one, good for you, cause that's the only thing these corporate whores understand.

But by all means, keep shouting how you're not gonna take it anymore while opening your wallet.

now that is proper talking. as much as i love the BF series,i am going to lay off pre-ordering and with that lose the back to kharkand DLC (DLC, on day 1 right?) which iīd love to have. but this just makes me sad...

by the way, i use Steam and find it to be very useful. if you donīt have internet, you can still play your games without problems, so i donīt really see what the problem is with Steam
