Buying Games (HELP)
« on: June 27, 2013, 02:30:12 pm »
Hi guys. I'm new to buying original games
I want to buy BF3 through origin, but I'm wondering whether I have to download it.
I'm saying this because I know that the game is quite large and I don't have that kind of an internet connection.
I also have a copy of BF3 I got from Lion Kolla.
Any suggestion would be helpful.

If you buy a game online, and register it to your origin account, you will still have to download it.
You can use files frmo your PIrated copy to your original game, however due to updates you will still have to download aorund anywhere between 2-10GB Of files

Because i donwloaded BF3 recently and it was 20GB... and the one you get frmo lion is about 10-14 GB...

Thanks for the info.
So would it be better to buy a hard copy off amazon or something?

If you have the money, Use Kapruka to get down from Amazon or ebay (If shipping to sri lanka from ebay is available, then dont use kapruka) :)
