    Just got the email. Yippee etc..

    That AMD driver is corrupted though. Can't install it.

    And for $£%* sake get over the gripping about Origin those who are. Of course EA while try to compete with Steam by launching it's own service. I use both, it's no big deal.

    If for some reason it's impossible to send the key to wuy could I have the second one? :p

    On topic though... *ahem*... wouldn't it be impossible though to order twice through origin?

    Have to say, Origin is pretty good, nice clean interface, and good UI. I'm looking forward to using it for BF3. Now they just have to work on the prices. Not selling it for £29.99 was a mistake.

    No, it is not good UI until they finally add the "Start minimized" option.

    Agree - would of definately bought it orogin for that price but £39.99 is way too much imo - have never paid that much for a PC game especially a download with no physical copy. Resorted to buying from Amazon for £29.99 for DVD version and extra £2 or something for next day delivery to ensure i get it promptly...I am presuming that getting it a day late but installing it from disc will get me playing around the same time that everyone else has taken to download it!

    The key I got from my steam copy of MOH is different than the one I received in email. Anyone see a potential problem with using them both?

    Did you preorder BF3 from origin and get the code from MOH? If so you'll only need 1 of those codes. The other will be spare.

    EDIT: Oh, rereading I see what you men. No, I'm sure different people could use the codes.

    No I haven't pre-ordered yet. I was still weighing the options and hoping for a last minute Steam announcement or a better deal. I think I'm going to give this other code to a friend and let him try it out. I guess the worst that could happen is they cancel my origin account in which I have one game listed.... the BF3 alpha.
