    So, BF3 beta is starting on Thursday (earlier if you pre-ordered on origin, pre-ordered medal of honour last year, or were an Alpha tester). And obviously by being a beta, that makes it FREE. It's going to be about 2-3gb.

    So I made a steamgroup:

    http://steamcommunity.com/groups/EMP-BF3

    I played in the Alpha and it really was an amazing squad game, so I really can't wait for it. We should also all post our Origin usernames here, because, no matter how much you may well resent having to install a steam-clone, if you want to play BF3, you have to have it. And it's not that fucking bad. It's certainly less crashy and slow than steam. It can be downloaded here:

    http://www.origin.com/uk/about

    My Origin username is Trickster9012.

    See you all on it. Throw any questions about the game here too and I'll try to research the answers for you if I don't already know.

    Spec requirements:

    Multiplayer Beta will be 2-3GB download.

    Are you sure you didn't already take it, if you ever had EA Download Manager.

    For free, beside that EA gets payed by getting all your personal data with Origin. What software you install, what software you're using, etc. PC data is something that falls under privacy laws, don't throw your rights away like that. That data is far more worth for EA than some game, information is NOT free. Steam only claims data that is compiled inside steam and the steam store website.
    I couldn't care less for installing a steam clone, but I certainly won't install spy software, I might as well install a keylogger.
