    yea but CD requirement is redundant and unnecessary. we are already required to have unique CD keys in order to even log on. that in itself should be enough as far as DRM is concerned. MW never required disc to play multiplayer and MW2 never required it period. i'd rather tie the game to my steam account than be bothered with disc in drive requirement. we're not on silly xbox or ps3. it's a hassle i've put up with so far because i like BF but it's a hassle i can definitely do without. i think most would agree with me on that.

    or it could be a lame excuse to force people to have the discs in drive to play. i'll be really pissed if they go this route. i hate being forced to have discs in drive.
    The reason the digital requirements on disk space are higher is because the EA downloader doesn't work like steam, it actually first will download all the install files, just as if it were a disc, then install the game from those files so in reality you will need the disc area for both the install files and the final installed game. you can then delete the cache' folders install files when the install is done.

    Unless they remove all DRM of-course you'll have to have the disc in the drive, there are only a handful of hard copy games that don't require that.............that's a DRM method in itself and that's why you ll get a nice punkbuster kick/ban for using a no cd crack.......seriously, if its too much of a hassle to pull out a game disc and insert it into the drive this just might not be the hobby for you......or you could always just buy it from the EA downloader.......that tedious chore if inserting a dvd into the drive can then safely be bypassed.........

    amirite?
    If that's true, then how do cracks work?

    Anyone notice the game sizes and they list a disc version for BF1943?

    I've heard absolutely no mention of plans to offer a hardcopy version of BF1943...this is the first time I've ever seen it mentioned and if i recall correctly it was stated BF1943 would be 500 mb and strictly download only......could DICE be saving a surprise for us and giving us a full game or are these leaked specs just a load of BS? and if it is going to be a full game i wonder if that $15 price tag will rise? and how can they do that is so since people have already preordered it....mines already paid for........
    I think that was only for the console versions

    You'll get it for like 5 bucks extra price i think, a different bundle edition.

    I think your confusing BF1943 with Battlefield Heroes.

    I suspect, like BF2, there will be a deluxe version and a standard version. The deluxe version I imagine would only be released after BC2 is released to help prevent problems.
