No word that I've heard, but it's what I've been waiting for. BC2 was a Steam release, so I'm hoping the trend will follow.

It will be a steam release as every hit EA game is. However, the biggest issue is the tension between steam and EA as I believe there is a relationship issue between the two. I'm going to take a guess and say it has something to do with the pricing as steam has always been renowned for being cheaper than EA of which only affects the EAstore. Conflict of interests really, but they seem to manage.

I don't want a DVD version, I want it via steam as the updating process is simple and easy, and never seem to have issues with steam games.

Same here Leevers. I've got the original discs for BF:1942 and BF2 - but have lost the CD-Key for one of them, and the other is scratched beyond repair. Sure it's my fault - but if I ever feel like getting back into Bad Company Too I just re-install it through Steam and sign in.

So quick, so easy and so reliable. Can't remember the last game I bought anywhere else...

Pricing! We always take it bent over the bonnet and dry on that one with the regional pricing!

Having said that if the game is as good as it looks (please, please, please be good) no one minds stumping up the extra $$$$.

There are always ways around regional pricing...that's one of the best things about TOG being international...Get a US/EU TOGger to gift it to you

for a game (this one looks like a keeper) that you might play for well over a year - the price (within reason) doent matter. Steam provides an unequaled patch process and back up service which is second to none.

I would be happy to pay full retail....to steam

If you think we get bent over bonnet by steam, then you clearly haven't bought a game via EA. they own the bonnet steam bend you over.

I for one as Redgum has mentioned couldn't care if they charged me $110. I'm still going to buy it, and play it for quite some time.
