If the price ends up being lower, it could be a good deal for anyone who hasn't picked the game up yet.
Dante112  +   1276d ago
I was thinking the same thing. Wonder if it'll come with the DLC packages (free with this edition)? I might just finally pickup BF3 if it does.

"Premium edition"

I would assume it would or it is stupid to even label the game the "premium edition". It will cost more than the standard edition IMO.

There might be tokens for the extra DLC.

@ Date112

Premium is the DLC Packages... so if you bought this one, it's coming with the game and all the DLC for $69

-So basically if you buy this you will have everything..-The game and an activation key to be Premium and get all the DLC-

There's a lot of deals for the PC version of Premium. Too bad it doesn't work for any other.

They did kind of sh*t on the old players, who spent over a hundred bucks for this, and had to deal with a game that was pretty messed up about 3-4 patches ago..l

Thank you for bringing that up.I posted something on MP1st about that crap.No offense but Its a complete way to shit on your fans Dice and EA.Its great news for those who havnt picked it up yet though.Good for you guys shitty for the rest of us.

It's the cost of early adoption.

It's no different than buying a console on day one. You know, sometime down the road, that the thing will be slimmer, cheaper, larger storage, and will probably come with a game or two.

It's up to you whether or not you want the game now, or want to wait for a better deal to come along.

What SlapHappyJesus said.

I already have over 150 hours of BF3 time. Got BF3 release day for $40 @ Kmart, then got premium for $50. That's $20 more and I've had the game since last October. And while there were some kinks to work out, the game was still great to play pre-patch(es). I got my money's worth.

I'll be baffled if it's more than $60 though. There have been several sales for BF3 at $20, so with premium that's $70. The smart thing to do would be $50 a month before Black Ops 2 comes out.
Statix  +   1276d ago
No one forced you to buy the game early, and at full price. Games ALWAYS drop in price a few months after release. ALWAYS.

If you saw this coming, and predicted that there would be a Premium edition at a reduced price about a year after launch, then it's YOUR fault for not waiting the extra year.

I bought Battlefield 3 at launch, and I also bought the Premium DLC pack for $50. I don't regret doing so.

It was obvious, just as they did with BFBC2 Ultimate Edition. IMO, not worth re-purchasing unless it drops to 20€. Even less when they've already announced BF4.
Lockon  +   1276d ago
So i spend 64 dollars plus another 50...And they're now selling BF3 Premium edition for like 59.99-69.99?...

>_<
Ducky  +   1276d ago
Yea, but you also got to play (and hopefully enjoy) the game for nearly a year, so that's gotta be worth something right?
Lockon  +   1276d ago
Yeah. True.
BringingTheThunder  +   1276d ago
and some people paid $600 for a PS3, prices change
Lockon  +   1276d ago
PS3 came out like 6 years ago. BF3 has only been out for 9 1/2 months. What an amazing comparison. /s

There goes my last bubble.
crawling182  +   1276d ago
Great deal for new comers. Game is still great online.
snowman2149  +   1276d ago
If they release BF3 with All DLC later this year then what exactly is the point of releasing MOH Warfighter? lol
BringingTheThunder  +   1276d ago
to try to revive the series
snowman2149  +   1276d ago
By doing that not only do they fragment the consumers but they also fragment the online community, nice job EA.
vallencer  +   1276d ago
My question to you is how exactly?? All they are doing is offering a product for anyone who doesn't already have it. That's it. I bought bf3 when it came out and then i bought premium and i am in no way shape or form mad that they are doing this. It's a great idea. Oh and MOH is different than BF3 so there is still a point of releasing it.
