but steam shouldnt have a limited number of activations, should it? That may be why it was stripped from steam so suddenly

@Thund3rball thought that was a very good article actually. Though I think some of the reasons valve was successful with steam is because they were a small developer and really werent concerned about only having their own titles on it. EA I assure you is only going to allow EA titles into their store and it will do nothing for competition. Having multiple publishers on the same service is good for competition.

Well hopefully Origin fails so that other publishers don't get the same idea. And hopefully ME3 isn't locked in to Origin, it would be the first game I buy the boxed version since ME1.

Ah hell, one more service to run. I was wondering why BF3 pre-order wasn't pooping up on steam...

I wonder if I can just add it as a non-steam game... And hope the overlay works.

don't bother, just wait it out like the rest of us

If too many people pre-order somewhere else it's just going to make a mess of everything.
