Who cares, we will all buy it
There are no bad points to steam.. not a one.
Just wait till you're plunking in a quarter each time you want to play. And that's after paying full price and beyond on a game which was supposedly going to be reduced in price due to cutting production and distribution costs.
Hmm, I wonder what happened to that part?
And no, Starforce doesn't exist because some choose not to support steam. Starforce exists because idiots buy games which use Starforce. If they didn't, it would go away.
You know, kinda like the reason steam exists.
