    The $26 key factory people state that they buy a boxed copy and will e-mail you a scanned image of it. For me, a bunch of russians keeping the box and key for my game is not an option.

    Smart though, volume buy discount, then in keeping the boxes with used keys they could probably obtain new keys post release very cheap and onsell as a physical unit.

    We should get a heap of Toggers together and do one big bulk order. I wonder if we could get a discount...

    Yeah i read that too, but a lot of Steam forum users seem to think differently. I really want to buy the cheap key, because i don't want disc's these days...but i'd much prefer to buy through steam and keep all my eggs in 1 basket.

    I think (hope) Steam will get it for release. EA would lose a massive chunk of their sales by not having Steam sell it imo. Although, an 'official' response regarding this would be nice.

    I could be way off, but for now, i'll hold out for as long as possible.

    I'll wait up until it's ready for pre-load on Origin. Once that mark has been reached I think I'll be grabbing it off there if there's no information about the Steam version.

    You know they might try launching it on Steam too, only late so the initial sales all go straight to them.

    so i was lookin at this topic an seen the cdkeyshare thing a week or so ago. Now that i am ready to pre order i decided to check again and seen this message. Note the blue writing;)


    What will you get:

    You will get Battlefield 3 CD Key (scan of the cd key from original DVD box). You can activate and download the game on EA Downloader. This game can not be activated on Steam platform.
    Note: This game is on preorder and your CD Key will be sent to your e-mail address on 25.10.2011.


    Good enough for me i have just ordered 2 copys for my wife and myself. id be prepared to wait a couple of weeks at that price but if i could get it on release day like they say that would be sweet!

    :D

    You may find that prices in Russia will be pretty cheap as well. A number of Russian developed flight sims I've purchased have been 1/4 the US price. The product is priced relative to the disposable income of the local population which is fair and equitable IMO, it's the disparity we have compared to the US and UK that irks me.

    Well it seems they have changed the date now. Two days later than people who got it from Origin:
    Battlefield 3 CD Key

    I read the US is the 25th and Europe is 27th. So it depends where the keys are coming from.

    I see. So it is still probably the best deal around. Unless EA decides to restrict the regions, like Call of Duty.

    I'm a bit concerned its not coming with the Expansion pack? Battlefield 3 CD Key

    Or from OzGameShop. Whats the point of pre ordering if its not with it?

    For what it's worth:

    From Is this site legit? cdkeyshere.com - [H]ard|Forum

    If EA really did ban keys from these sites before, I would be willing to bet they will do it again, knowing that if they did ban them, those users would still go buy the game again..more money for EA. Just my 2 cents.
