EA's Origin Service Required To Play Battlefield 3

They say bad news comes in threes so, if Battlefield 3 not coming to Steam was number one and today's news that the game is going to require EA's Origin Service is number two.... what's next? frown

There has been some confusion over how EA’s new Origin service will be integrated into Battlefield 3. Battlelog plays a big part, with the ability to browse servers and join a game directly from the browser. But according to DICE’s Daniel Martos, Origin will be required in order to play Battlefield 3 if the game is bought in retail. We don’t know whether this is true if the game is downloaded through a digital download service other than Origin, but we suspect Origin will be required no matter what.
