Battlefield 3 Hacked to Work Without Origin?

Hackers have worked out a way to play Battlefield 3 without using the Origin service that EA requires of players of the military shooter sequel, reports Gamasutra. They have apparently acquired the cracked version of the game, saying it includes the following statement: "This release is dedicated to our fans worldwide who bought this game on [sic] legal way and don't want to install the trojan from Electronic Arts to play online." They also say EA has not yet commented on this situation. Thanks Destructoid.

works fine on IE9 though, and uses MUCH less ram than firefox (which is a pretty damn big factor given that firefox uses 300mb, and IE9 90mb...
If you say so

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Valve games can't be played outside of the Steam wrapper, can they? (Legitimately in mp, I mean)

If not, then is it safe to assume that Origin is less intricately tied into BF3 then Steam is to, say, Left 4 Dead?
Depends. Portal 2 would let you play multiplayer with the pirate version by running console commands, and not using steam at all. I was seeing weird behavior from some people who I randomly joined, such as their pointer not working. A quick google later and turns out that's one of the symptoms of using the pirate version.

If it works with the pirate version, presumably it would work with the legit version (I never tried it with my purchased copy)

Anyway, yes, origin is less tied than steam in general to valve games, since it's mostly a launcher and they use an entirely separate web browser based server thing.
