A review for the Battlefield 3 premium package by Gamers Hideout reviews editor Joey Hancock.
That's wayyy too much money for all that nonsense. Seriously, 5 map packs? Colourful guns? Hints and tips? Getting priority in servers which everyone can access anyway? You HAVE to be the blindest fanboy on the planet to think 50 bucks is a good deal - just because EA charges 15 bucks for a stupid map pack doesn't mean you aren't being hosed and milked for your cash, and it doesn't make this rip off any better a deal.
Your getting 10 new guns PER pack, so around 50, new challenges, a total of 20 maps, weapon skins, exclusive items, several new vehies and game modes etc for $50.....how exactly is that a rip off? It's basically a paid for expansion.... Your saving money....each pack is 15x5=75. With premium it's 50. Ur saving money. Stop being such a sour puss. Most true expansions are $30 anyway and have LESS content. Oh and good job on leaving half of what you get out.
we should be able to use our back to karkand map codes for a 20% discount on this map pack. I shouldnt be paying for things I already own. I know its petty, but its the main reason I havent bought this yet.
You don't get 10 new weapons per pack. Armored Kill will not have any new infantry guns for example. And who knows if you get any in the last two packs.
You actually only get 20 weapons, says so in the Premium trailer which is still a good amount but not as good as 50. Premium is a pretty good deal if you plan on getting all of the map packs anyway, you save a bit of money on those and you get other stuff with it as well.
We should get a Back to Karkand code for if we pay for this and already own B2K so we could sellthe codes.
Think of it this way: I never have to pay money for DLC again.
Think of it this way - you're getting hosed in the first place, EA WANTS you to think this is such a great deal.
I got it because of the time exclusivity. Which does suck that they put that in there but they needed the perk to get people to buy the premium. Plus, since my clan plays this game I would have gotten the DLC anyway. I might as well get a few dollars savings.
