Battlefield 3 $10 download on Amazon

Wow, finally! Now you can get a digital copy of Battlefield 3 from Amazon for $10.

Battlefield 3 $10.00

Of course it is using Origin to install & launch your game, but still... good deal!

I've found that Amazon is the easiest place to find great values in games

Unfortunately Origin and Wine are not good friends.
So I'll be playing these in Windows for now...
But I never give up! Mass Effect 1 & 2 both work in Linux, so all we need is Origin to work and I'm sure they won't have any problems playing

Have you searched the POL Wine list...I seem to recall a Wine that tries to deal with Origin?

Yes there is a Wine_Origin version, but I havn't tried it yet.
When I do my Mass Effect 3 tests, I definitely will...
Otherwise, on WineHQ most people marked "Garbage" or lots of problems

After I got Assassin's Creed running I learned to "never give up hope"
One day Crysis will work too!
