  • 25% BF3 preorder at Direct2Drive this weekend

    Use coupon code "bunny"

    I am thinking only amazon or retail stores will do better but odds are it will involve a store credit/gift card deal. Certainly Steam never puts preorders on sale past 10%...

    Tempting but...

    1. I prefer steam for patches for obvious reasons (EA DOWNLOADER!)
    2. Never used D2D. I assume it's good - any horror stories?
    3. No MP footage yet = no preorder (yet)

        Mantis, I can't remember, but can't people enter the EA BF3 code into Steam and run it thereafter on Steam?

          You can only do that with Steamworks games and BF3 won't be one of them.

            That's right. Thank you. D2D is a good service and as a IGN member I've bought a bunch of games through it - fast downloads too. Steam is nice and easy and, as mentioned, can be more convenient. The potential $9.00/ea. difference could be worth while if you're buying more than one copy...

            Skud my friend, I know you held off getting BC2 until months later, which was frugal and smart considering the initial bugs that come with games early on, but you know EVERYONE is going to get BF3 on Day 1. Guys who have stopped gaming are waiting for BF3 to come back to TG. We need you in game to help with the insanity!

              I'd rather use D2D than steam and thanks for the heads-up, pre-ordered. See ya on the front.

                Darn, they're bumping up to $60 for the PC version this time? This deal is incredibly tempting, but like others, I'm anal about getting my games through Steam these days.

                  Yeah that was my reaction too. It's $45 after the sale. I wouldn't be surprised if elsewhere it was offered for $50 with 10% off for preordering (also $45 for you math flunkies).

                    I'm all for Steam, nice to load games onto more than one PC at will. I've never tried D2D, and 25% off is temping though...

                      Oh I definately will pre-order BF3! Don't you worry about that. However, I'm still debating...

                          Please don't. That will only add to funding MOH2.

                            Personally I am not a fan of using steam for a lot of stuff, such as ArmA etc, however I might use it for BF3. Doubt I will have a choice tbh. Would be nice to have a nice separate DVD install though...........

                              Steam for the win. D2D been giving them good competition lately though, makes for some good deals.
