Hey guys, I'm just curious as to how my fellow canucks pre-ordered this game. I figure I would have to buy it today in order to get the pre-order goodies before the Friday pre-loading, but I'm a little clueless about what the best online pre-order deal is at the moment.

Some may have noticed a deal on Amazon.com that was 30% off for the pre-order goodies of Back To Karkand and some Dogtag pack. It's currently at 15% or thereabouts off now, and I'm currently thinking of getting it.

Now consider this. Being in Canada, I have no idea if I can purchase this or if it'll redirect me to Amazon.ca or something. Subsequently, since this is digital distribution, I have to consider a bunch of possible bullshit EA endgames, like Amazon tying your purchase automatically to U.S. Origin accounts via your email address, or the CD-Key Amazon gives you being region-locked to the U.S., or even just the very real possibility that Origin is quarter-baked and will mess something up.

So yeah, just looking for a bit of advice here. If I'm in Canada, can I buy some digital download deal using a Canadian CC on the American website, without any worries? Is the Amazon BF3 key to Origin what a Steamworks game is to Steam, that is, I can buy a key from anywhere and install it on any platform internationally? Has anyone bought a digital download from Amazon.com who doesn't live in the U.S. and can share their experience/nightmare with me? Is there any region-locking idiocy I should be wary of, buying this from .com? Has anyone pre-ordered from Amazon or somewhere other than Origin and know if they'll be a part of the pre-loading happening this Friday?

Thanks for your replies guys. Cheers.

Amazon.com will not let you checkout since you are Canadian.

My guess is that it's only amazon policy and if you had let's say a friend in the states he would buy it for you and just give you the code and you could activate it. But that's just my guess.
