    You can either buy the disk and register you game (online, through Stream or by phone) or you can buy it from Stream, meaning no disk and you have to register it (same ways).
    You dont have to buy it on Stream and a disk too.

    Reading this thread will hopefully help you understand what it's all about. You don't have to register through STEAM, there are other ways as said in the thread.

    This is a subject that is being blow out of proportion on here. You'll download the game install it and there will be some kind of registration step during the process. People are talking as if SI want you to split the atom before playing the game.

    A good question was asked earlier and I don't think it was answered - if we get the game a day early, will we have to wait a day to authenticate it?

    Steam is a game delivery application that was designed by Valve - the people who created Half Life and Counterstrike, etc.

    Basically it's a resource hub, that lets developers such as SI take advantage of a fully-developed and supported software hub.

    What you do when you go to steampowered.com is, is sign up and download the client. This is basically an application that runs in the background.

    If you bring the Steam application to the fore, it acts as a type of web browser - but the content is limited to games that you can purchase and download. It's very "click-and-it-happens."

    When you buy FM09 over Steam, you will not receive a disc. Instead, Steam will download FM09 and install it in the Steam directory. From there, it authorises your use of FM09 (online validation). So to run FM09 you have to first run Steam. No disc checking will be required.

    Some much needed manual reading time?

    I half expect to open the manual one day and see "You're all a bunch of muppets!!!! No one reads this thing, and I spend so much time on it..."

    Can you imagine the frustration if the game comes a day early? It's just sitting there begging to be played. Don't think I could cope!
