Man, I wish Oleg and the Boys would have done this a year or two ago, no more "it won't fit on the discs." Nowadays essentially every computer built features at least a DVD reader, if not a burner also. The game installs three gigs, you sure as heck can't fit that on a CDROM or three <ggg.> All the best, LongHorn

Soon cdroms will be a thing of the past...not soon enough imo. Even I can cough less then 40 bucks for a DVD drive and all 4 of my kids still got to eat http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Even better are the content delivery programs such as Valve's "Steam" and fileplanet's Direct2Drive (from which you can obtain Brothers In Arms). I wish more publishers would jump on this bandwagon. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif bandwidth http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

steam.... hmmm naah i think its a bit much to burden people with all the associated steam ****.

i know several people who wont buy HL2 due to no internet connection, and the complete CBF'd attitude to try to get it working over dial in.

one wonders at the reduction of sales due to this rather narrow setup option. Still piracy would be huge otherwise.... probably made more money? who knows.

nothing, but nothing beats the bandwidth of a dvdrom sitting in my car driving back from EB. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

i want 24/7 access to my software, that i paid for, and not have to rely on a company that may or may not exist when i want to play my games after a few years off.

its a quaint idea, but until everyone on earth is at least 512k online, its more of a concrete pair of shoes than anyting else.

Once registered thereis no requirement to be on the Internet to play HL2. Just click on offline mode and you can play it just fine.

I love steam. I purchased and played HL2 without ever putting on pants. How great is that?

Not to mention, I dont have to look for, or dl, or install any updates and patches. They show up witout me even noticing sometimes. I've never had a connectioon issue. Of course i live in a big city, and have great broadband.
