If it's not on Steam I won't buy it, unless I get a spectacular deal on a hard copy.

Well Impulse and Gamespy Comrade (you can use it with your D2D account) will show updates. I know Impulse will do auto updates, but by default it asks you.

I preordered BF3 from Futureshop when they were doing their E3 deal.
Got it for PC for $39.99 for the retail copy, not too shabby if you ask me.

GameStop Execs Claim Battlefield 3 Will Not be on Steam More confirmations are coming in today to confirm what we've suspected all along, Battlefield 3 will not be sold on Steam. The latest confirmation comes from statements from GameStop's management team with Baird, a financial research firm.

Financial research firm Baird recently held a meeting with Gamestop’s management, and in its subsequent report says: “The upcoming EA title Battlefield 3 will be sold as a download through GameStop, but not through Steam.”

Baird has since told Develop that it had heard the claim directly from Gamestop executives. EA and Valve have been approached for comment.

“Given Steam's dominance – and insistence on users downloading a Steam client application – publishers are likely to be receptive to a competitive alternative,” the Baird report read.
I'll say it again BF3 will not be coming to steam, shame really.

‪Battlefield 3 - Battlelog Analysis‬‏ - YouTube

It looks like they've also given some Battlefield Veterans a trial of the Alpha version.

Members who can join are Battlefield veterans and sign-up via their EA account. There isn't any information on how EA is choosing qualified candidates, but it seems random. Some members are handpicked to take part in the Battlefield 3 alpha trial as well. Go ahead and try logging in here with your EA details. Many are greated with the message "We're sorry - you don't meet the criteria to enter this site." The minimum specs (Alpha, these may change come release) have also been revealed.
