Jeff, I'm really surprised that you are supporting Battlefield 3 after they announced that it would not be available on steam. This sounds exactly like the type of thing you would be against. If you haven't heard of this issue, I highly recommend you do some research. The basic facts are: Battlefield 3 won't be available on steam. In fact, EA has been pulling a number of games off steam. EA is pushing the use of their own download manager. This download manager is terrible, it doesn't handle any of the DLC, patching, keys, or installation. The user still has to do that on their own. EA has a terrible track record with DRM. Remember SecureRom? Thousands of users were unable to play games they legally purchased because of faulty DRM schemes. This has happened more than once on EA titles. EA has stated that they will remove your ability to re-download you have purchased 1 year after the purchase date (unless you pay extra for "re-download insurance"). EA has stated that they will delete your account (and your license to all content purchased under that account) after 2 years of inactivity. This is a giant step backwards for the gaming community.
