Personally, I'd spend the extra from shopto. It's still too expensive for what it is.

Digital downloads are risky as you never own a physical copy. Basically if steam lose the right to host the game and it gets taken down then you're out of luck if you lose it.

Erm, you do know that the copy you buy from Shopto requires you to register it on Steam to play don't you? So basically, it is exactly the same version, just cheaper.

Can't purchase this game as a new customer as their telephone authentication system errors on your telephone number provided.

Nice to see the idiots have taken over today ...

1) £24.74 is a fantasy unless you provide a reciept ... cheapest on release for the PC version was Shopto at £33.
2) Whether you have a boxed copy or a digital copy it makes no difference with this game - all copies are registered to your Steam account
3) @jonny619447 - time to get with the times ... you don't actually own a game in any case, you just have a licence to use it. In fact Steam could be argued to be better than having a physical copy as you will never lose or scratch it - you just redownload it if ever you need to.

D2D are a crap company, and i've had hassle with them before - sorry for those that can't buy at this price. But unless someone tells me otherwise, this is the cheapest price around.

To be fair it will probably go to around £25 in a couple of months time, but don;t expect it to go sub £20 until the next version of COD is released ... for some strange reason this game is popular and thus it holds its price for a long time.

Anyway - have fun whoever has bought it.

Erm, you do know that if you BUY the game from steam you own no physical data, registering and buying the game are two different things. If steam pull the game from their site for whatever reason, it won't matter whether or not you've paid for it, it's gone. It works exactly the same as with something from Xbox live marketplace or PSN. For the sake of a couple of quid, I would personally as I'm sure most would buy a hard copy of the game, so you have something with the data on it if something goes to ****.

Also, there's no need for the name calling. Trust me when I say it's not a game you want to start with me.

Erm, your really not getting this are you ... you can't install the game standalone! It must be registered on Steam to download either missing data or a code to authenticate. This authentication means that your shiny disk is worthless on its own, as you will not be able to install it or play it without Steam - exactly the same as the download copy.

Now, the argument over this type of DRM is a completely different subject, but lets be fair, DRM like this has more to do with stopping second hand sales than it does with stopping piracy.

In addition, as far as I am aware Steam have never pulled a game from their list - do you know something I don't ?

The big risk comes from publishers/developers closing down servers stopping you playing online (like EA have done to a lot of games, or MMOs going out of business like APB) - but in any of these instances it would not be the fact that you bought it via hard copy or digital that would make a difference - if the servers go down then you can't play either version.

It normally helps if you do a little research before trying to come across as though you know what you are talking about - but lets be fair, if you do not like digital download then that is up to you, but to try stating that a disk has more value than the digital copy when they both need the digital service to run is just strange - unless you are placing value in the disk becoming a tea-coaster?

Sorted the telephone authentication in the end by contacting customer services. Lovely stuff. Not my words, the words of Shakin' Stevens.

And can I be the first to offer myself as a willing participant in a game of name calling with StolenDiagram. I'm intrigued as to his prophecy of certain doom if anyone was to enter into this arrangment with him.

Think this is a good deal, but the phone activation failed for me. Tried 6 times to create a support ticket and it failed each time too. Infuriating! My first and last experience of direct2drive.

Just managed to log a support ticket now, so I guess it's fixed again. I'm still far from impressed.

The only games I buy from D2D are games that do not need their service to work, such as COD:BO ... they really are a bad company, but if you can get this deal to work then you never have to touch them again.

Lost one sale from me - really wanted to get this last night but ended up paying a fiver more to get it from the GAME download site instead.

Ridiculous - why do they need phone authentication anyway?

I'm getting stutters too - more noticable in MP, but also when moving to look through sights in SP ... unforgivable given that it's still the same engine as CoD 4 - they should not be having this sort of performance issue with such a well used engine ...

Running on a Q6600, GTX460, 4GB RAM - I understand that they are still tweaking the engine for multi-processor - I guess that this is directly down to the age of the engine.

The SP story is pretty crap too - I preferred MOH SP, but the MP is good fun for what it is ... i'll still be getting BFBC2: Vietnam though - I much prefer the more considered pace of BFBC2 - able to deploy tactics in squad play, rather than just run and gun or camp.

Still for £30, i'll probably get my monies worth out of the MP over the year.

im running a Phenom 2 x550, ATI 4770, 4gb ram.. The stutters ruin the game.... hopefully within a few days they'll fix it...

is all about the multi player
