Greatest Glitches Series: Battlefield 3 Premium for free

Glitches in games can be fun. Recently, some gamers took advantage of EA with the BF3 Premium Glitch. Goozernation is going to examine glitches like this and ask the question what is the long term impact of something like this? Who really benefits in the end? (Battlefield 3, EA, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Well this is perfect. EA took the decision to punish every non-premium member so they deserve to lose out.

How did they punish them? Please share, i'd love to know.
Cam977  +   551d ago
By constantly running Premium in the non-subscribers' faces - let me explain. When killed by a Premium member it tells me in bright, yellow letters; in addition, non-subscribers don't get put to the front of a game lobby's queue whereas Premium members do; also, Premium members get map packs in advance and double XP.

I guess it's down to opinion, but to me, the mentioned points penalise non-Premium members.

Then that is your own fault. It's not like they had a gun to your head and are forcing you to buy it. It's there for those LOYAL fans who want early access to maps and a few small bonuses.

I bet if you had Premium it would be a different story though wouldn't it? You can't complain. It's there for you to buy it.

Lol at the LOYAL fans part

@Cam977 You sound so butthurt its a shame.

What PS store glitch is this? All you have to do is gameshare it from someone who bought the premium.Gamesharing is perfectly fine.

It's EA's own fault for allowing it to be game shared.

This has nothing to do with gamesharing

You probably could gameshare it but weeks ago early in the morning it was free but only through the BF3 game. It was only free for a few hours. There were posts on cheapassgamer and everything.

Glitch a few weeks back when bf3 store in ps3 lists premium as free

And last night using a $20 off code you could get all the <$19.99 games on origin pc store

EA and their glitches lol

"In the end, this could be one of those things that slips through the internet and gets brought up years later in flashback articles by starving game journalists or in awkward forum posts."

Oh, the irony

It's no different to a price error in a retail store - it happens and a few get lucky.. END.

HOW DO I DO THIS GLITCH? SOMEONE TELL ME PLEASE? OR is it too late?
vickers500  +   551d ago
Lol, you're way too late. I think this happened a couple of weeks ago.
Xx-ADITYA-xX  +   551d ago
Oh :(

It was already difficult to find a decent server, and sometimes I would login and see little or no servers at all. Why pay more to experience that? If Premium was half of what it costs- I could maybe go for it...but no thanks. Props to anyone who got that for free. Take that EA. It's your own damn fault.

And of course with Battlefield 4 being "leaked" this game now is under the gun in regards to how long before it officially dies out (server-wise thanks to EA's itchy trigger finger of death).

Still a great game, but I am a bit turned off by all the "Premium" content I won't be buying.

Im proud to be a non premium player, why would I want to pay in advance for map packs that im not sure I will like?
