That is what I am worried about, as they have a steel case promo going for ME3 as well. I am just figuring sure I could get the digital version but since they are the same price I might as well get my hands on the actual art book and comic and such.

I think maybe I will do it at Futureshop, they are the closest to my place.

Well, I'll be ordering a physical copy. No extras for the digital, same price as BB/FS, and you still have to pay tax on Origin, unlike Steam or others. I'd rather have the box on my desk, TYVM.

I came across this site the other day with some cool wall art for ME3, too. WALLS 360 wall graphics: Mass Effect 3

Origin wasnt down, I just wasnt letting it through my firewall.... had forgotten about that... I've tried sandboxing it and that seems to be working now. EA you will not look at my computer without my permission.

Downloading the demo now. Have to figure out how to use my BF3 code as well for some MP. Wonder if the demo icon will be stuck there with my BF3 alpha as well.

But hey 6.8MB/s down isnt bad from Origin, it may be extremely intrusive, charge tax and be overtly annoying but it is fast.

And tat this point I agree that there is no advantage to buying the digital, youll be able to plug it into origin anyways and the stuff in it is better with a hard copy.

Well even though I said I wasn't going to tease myself, I ended up grabbing the demo. Lets just say the wait until the 6th is going to be painful. Very much looking towards this game.

if anyone wants to some coop my origin id should be dcbo89.

the single player part is pretty worthless sadly, better just to wait for the game now. Multiplayer isn't bad actually though, sure its not CSS, battlefield or tf2 but its fun
