MW2 still has far more players than BC2, and is the first PC game I've ever seen to beat out the team of CS and CS S.

Technically, it doesn't beat them as a team. CS + CS:S = more than CoD:MW2.

I believe they stated that the order minimum has to be $40 to use the $20 off code but I've ordered a game that was $39.97 and the code worked fine.

Think the fine print I saw was $39.95...so I fully expected them to drop the DA expansion by a penny or so, so the coupon couldn't be used, but they didn't...

code/restrictions are here: http://i40.tinypic.com/mh3n6r.png

The code also works with multiple different orders, so you are not limited to 1 order only. I've used it on 2 different orders and it worked fine. I believe they stated that the order minimum has to be $40 to use the $20 off code but I've ordered a game that was $39.97 and the code worked fine.

Yea, was thinking about getting Medal of Honor pre order......but I don't really want ANOTHER download service software. I kind of like my stuff all in Steam.

Is anyone else having problems preloading it? Mine doesn't seem to start.
same problem here Lonely
Wow, still? Has anyone even finished preloading?
i figured out what's happening (at least for me).
this preload doesn't seem to be working if you are using new ui test.
switching to the classic ui and now it's preloading for me
Hmm, I was using classic UI. I avoid prereleases.
Tonight, it works properly after I got home and turned on my PC. I don't know if I needed to reboot, Steam fixed it (did try restarting it when I had problems this morning), or what. Now, I need to finish the download and find time to play it (probably not until Sunday. :().

No, all your stats prove is that MW2 has far more players than BFBC2 players on Steam. Since BFBC2 doesn't require Steam and is sold at retail as well as at other digital distributors, I doubt most BFBC2 players are using Steam to play the game.

So, while MW2 may still have more players than BFBC2, your stats from Steam don't prove that.

Activision has to do something like this now, as BFBC2 is whooping their ass in sales. They probably asked Steam to do it to drum up interest in the game again. As long as they refuse to put the game on sale, I won't be purchasing it. Got BFBC2 for $30 bucks with a $20 off coupon for the EA store. Not going to pay console game prices for a PC game....

MW2 still has far more players than BC2, and is the first PC game I've ever seen to beat out the team of CS and CS S.
