The physical CD copy then, I wonder if it is really any different from the one that is digital... I mean Maybe the physical copy might just lead you into downloading into a digital form. It's my first time buying something from Origin so I wouldn't know.
Yeah, you're right, it's just that console port. That, and the whole "pay 2 win" thing going on with this micro transaction is the only thing that I don't like. Which, is why I hope they don't make an anti-cheat within the game because of that reason.
I don't think it can technically be different. It requires Origin, and installing from the DVD with Origin/Steam games just installs the data, then syncs updates up with the service.
Personally, I can't wait. I loved the demo on 360 - the super awesome Macgyver weapon crafting, the slick enemy/character design, the environment/atmostphere, etc etc. Co-op is great as well. I do find it fairly stupid that they're including microtransactions, but if people are impatient/dumb enough to buy the stuff then let 'em buy it. It's also a bit odd that the Markers were retconned into being researched for Spoiler:
"infinite free energy," but it does kind of make sense considering the Red Marker created an EMP large enough to cause a spacecraft to crash.
