Anyway, it does look good and I can't wait for the 28th, unless Steam gets it's arse in gear and gets the beta I should be getting it from Play next Wednesday or Thursday.

Well that sucks. This is what I don't get, it must be cheaper for them to sell through Steam, so how does it cost more!?!?

I would probably have gone as high as 30 to have it on Steam, I mean I'm still tempted, cause it makes life so much easier... grrr...

Hmm, apparently in Australia its $50, which equates to 28. Chuck, do you have anyone that can buy it for us and send it as a gift?

They don't need a Steam account I don't think...

I have noticed, the Steam version is 'Limited Edition' meaning you get 6 additional weapons/perks. I get the impression these are unlocked by regular game owners as they play their way through... it could be enough to swing it the way of Steam for me though.

**EDIT** Someone else says all pre-orders are the Limited Edition, so I'm not sure what to think now

I have seen this 'limited edition' bumpf also but the Play website doesn't mention it. You will get the upgrades eventually but is it worth an extra 8 for a dart gun and assorted crap?
On the trailers it talkes about the upgrades and you can play to get them.

That's what I read on the Steam forums, but I got this back from Amazon (responding within about an hour, pretty damn good actually)

I understand that you would like to know which version we are selling for the PC about the product Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

After looking into your enquiry I found that this item "Battlefield: Bad Company 2" listed in our website is only stander version and not Limited Edition version.
It's not even about getting the LE, but that combined with I can have it auto patching and locked into my cloud could push it over the edge for me.

I have Thursday off, through pure chance, but what's the likelihood it will be like 10pm in the evening the Beta starts

ill be getting mine on steam, personally for me the extra few quid for the ease of steam is worth it, also i have come to hate dvds for installing i am too used to online downloadable content. And i dont have room for the dvds etc, at least with steam i never have to worry about formating my pc etc, i can just redownload everything, easy peasy. Worth the extra money me thinks.

Anyway i will preorder through steam, as for prices thats decided by the publisher, and in most cases they make steam either come out late or be more expensive so people continue to preorder through retail etc. But steam is definately my way forward.
