This is fantastic.Been telling my friend to buy BF3 for what feels like a lifetime now.He's one of those COD guys, tho.

Finally, i can lure him into the better shooter and make him my tank repair bitch.

No excuses now, it's free.

Sony is mad. Sony is utterly mad! This is too good to be true man! Keep them coming!

Why the dislikes? I say "Mad" in overly awesome! Get with it, folks!

Bring on the free games!

This update isn't very good at all, most PS Plus subscribers already have BF3 and the rest of the games are awful.

darthv721212d ago

my psp is going to get charged up and play me some metal slug goodness.

Smoovekid1212d ago

@Yakuzaz How do you know most peole have BF3?

"This update isn't very good at all, most PS Plus subscribers already have BF3 and the rest of the games are awful. "

What a dope you are xYakuzaz. I have two of the games but not BF3 and the other games I don't have seem really good. It's a great list.

The_Infected1212d ago


I don't have BF3 and I've been wanting to play it but never ended up getting it so now I can enjoy it for free. So I enjoy PS Plus free games despite your opinion.

BLAKHOODe1212d ago

Haters are going to hate and say any dumb thing they can think of to try to justify their hate, but if you don't recognize that Battlfield 3 "free" "rented" or however you see it is not a great VALUE for Playstation Plus members, you're an idiot.

On top of the "freebie" or "rental", we're getting ridiculous savings on some AAA titles that we KEEP.. FOREVER.. rather our Plus membership expires or not.

shivvy241212d ago

Lol i dont have BF3 so its a win !

specialguest1212d ago

The last time I looked into PS Plus membership perks was back when free games meant old PS1 games. And now...? WOW! BF3 for free during membership?!? That's what I'm talking about. Suddenly the PS Plus requirement for PS4 multiplayer isn't so bad.

xPhearR3dx1212d ago


While I agree the rest of the games are pretty awful, I'm so happy BF3 is free for Plus Members. I recently picked up a PS3 again and already bought BF3 for PC/360 and didn't want to really buy it again to play with my friends. Since I'm a plus member, this worked out great for me. Seeing how a have a big backlog of PS3 exclusives I haven't played, I'm kinda glad BF3 is the only worth while title for me this month.

mewhy321211d ago

Wow. Sony is the best. You pay 10.00 less than Xbox Live and get games like uncharted, battlefield 3 for free!!! While Micro$oft gives you Halo3 ROFL!!!!!

Septic1211d ago

Damn. That is a brilliant deal.

PSN is putting Xbox Live to shame when it comes to value.

Kaneda1211d ago

In a few months, you will be playing with ghost. BF4 is coming out! FPS gamers will be playing BF4. BF3 needs a lot of players to have fun! Since the maps are so big!

The_KELRaTH1211d ago


OK so sure there are a lot of ppl that already own BF3 and I'm one of them but how about looking at it from a different perspective to just what you already have and consider that for existing BF3 players it will boost the players and servers again.
I also own Xcom Enemy Unknown BUT... I still downloaded the free PSN version as it means I don't need to have the disc to hand - and this will also apply to BF3.

AlexanderNevermind1211d ago (Edited 1211d ago )

@ SpecialGuest

Where U been?!

If you decide to purchase + look in the library of all the free games.............ENJOY.

T21211d ago (Edited 1211d ago )

@yakuzaz - I already own bf3, but I was waiting to pick up saints row 3 for 19.99 to mess around on... and then guess what happened last week?
plus already saved me 20 bucks in the first month i had it. If heavy rain goes on there I will have paid off my sub, LOL

edit - @kelrath - great idea i am going to download bf3 too and give my copy to a friend!! First I will watch the video on how to share games though just to make sure I get it right.

@ DayZ

-make him my tank repair bitch... LoL

Thank you for making me laugh so hard... -yeah BF3 is an awesome shooter, make sure you show him the ropes, because these COD guys are never prepared for a real fps...

Tip number one..
-yeah sniper shots tend to go down as they go across a long distance- you know like in real life- ...LoL
(unlike in COD where you can just shoot from any distance, and have no bullet drop)

superbhoy1212d ago

the maps on cod are so small they dont need it anyway

angelsx1212d ago

My dream is to play Battlefield in cinema.

badz1491212d ago

like mine Acer P1200i - dirt cheap now (not very good but decent but those Full HD projectors would be the best of course) and set your PS3 to a 5.1 home theater system, (I use my ancient Yahama TSS-10 I bought 10 years ago in Japan) and you're set to go! I have a 51" plasma too but I do game on my 'private cinema' every now and then!

ShwankyShpanky1212d ago

Anybody else have a digital copy of BF3 that can tell me how big it is?

My 500GB is starting going to need some new holes punched in its belt.

mrmarx1212d ago

about 7 with updates close to 12 with all dlc

mrmarx1212d ago

and gold for xbox gets a 5 year old xbox arcade game lol

T21211d ago

ugh don't remind me, my gold sub is up in october.... biggest waste of money ever, but of course I didn't have a choice as they had my credit card anyway, and I didn't know the default setting was "auto renew" and you can't remove your credit card info either it doesn't let you sign in to live.... fn money-grubbers.

GravelerMagnitude91212d ago (Edited 1212d ago )

and let it all loose on microsoft, even last weeks tacos was in the mix

omg , enough with the games Sony, your too f**k'n much Sonya baby

microsoft too greedy to give a free to play game for free

xbox fans, i beg you to go the sony route , just please. you only hold yourself back if you dont

dale_denton1212d ago

does it come with story only and no multiplayer?

badz1491212d ago

it's the full game dude! Granted that it's not the Premium Edition but it's the full BF3 game! kinda unbelievable, right? welcome to PS+!

dale_denton1211d ago

it was only a question.. i've been a ps+ sub since day one.. sometimes we do get games that have only the story and no multiplayer... simple question dude. but thanks for the info.

badz1491211d ago

what? is it true? what game that you were saying that only has campaign but not MP? honestly never heard about it.

dale_denton1211d ago

i downloaded uncharted 3 recently and it only came with story not online.. am i wrong or not? i'm not an xbox fanboy man.. i love my ps3! don't think i'm trolling because of an simple question. cheers.

dale_denton1211d ago

and yes, loving bf3 story and online =) finally finished dl

badz1491211d ago (Edited 1211d ago )

just found the question strange as like I said I didn't know that there were games separated SP from MP on PS+.

so, UC3 was like THAT ha? I didn't know because I didn't get it from PS+ as I still have my copy. but still...weird! anyway, enjoy your BF3 and cheers! sorry btw if offended

I literally just got 1 year of plus after reading this

Ashlen1211d ago

I'm really surprised an EA game made it onto PS+

ColeMacGrath1211d ago

Nope, I've got Kingdoms of Amalur last month, so its not the first EA game.

mxrider21991211d ago

@spyder but an ea game this big ya i am very surprised

Spontogical1211d ago

Mass Effect 3 has also been on the Instant Game Collection too - at least for EU members, not sure about US.

Soupaman661211d ago

I'm excited for ps+ bf3 too. I don't really buy shooters, but people gift me cod. Its fun but I'm also wondering if bf3 is as fast paced and fun. my dad play cod a lot and tried bf3 and didn't like it. I tried it on my friend's pc and didn't really get into it either. I'm not a big fan of strategy or pay real money for an advantage over other players. There's a chance that people played both games and prefer cod. I'm not going to shut down bf3 because I want to try it for myself. However I know there's a possibility I wont like it. I'm hoping I won't.

xxLuckyStrike1211d ago

Good now maybe this will give folks a reason to come off Netflix and use the ps3 for gaming

kingPoS1211d ago

Yeah... netflix lights up my friends list on Fridays & Saturdays. lol

Xandet1211d ago

Sony has no problem giving away BF3, one of the best, most active multiplayer-centric games on the market, yet MS can't spare ACII or Halo 3? Gimme a friggin' break.

3-4-51209d ago

I was a COD player...not only COD..but owned all of them. Just bought BF3 2 weeks ago and I love it.

Now one of my most anticipated games is BF4. It might be my MOST wanted game.

That and Smash Brothers

I feel robbed, i've had this N4G page up ready to submit after entering the URL for 7 hours and the first time i don't refresh for a few minutes it gets submitted, typical

Hahaha, I feel your pain man.

Though if you want me to delete this so that you'll resubmit it again, it's fine by me. ;)

nah it's cool man, i'll get it next time :)

Good Guy Zones, finds out someone was trying to submit the news before him, offers to delete it to give them a second shot.

Bubbles for being a cool dude.

I think also PS+ is a great deal.

BLAKHOODe1212d ago

Not if you're an Xbox fan. "Rented" games and big discounts are TERRIBLE.

Heretic961211d ago

I would rather have rented games that I want to play, than games to keep that I will never touch.

I have had PS+ since the day that it launched, and have just about every game that they have offered "to rent". A year later I can still play those "rented" games and they are still giving me more.

How many times do you need to finish a game to be satisfied with it? Is finishing or enjoying a "rented" game any different than one that is owned.

When is the last time you didn't pay for your XBL Gold membership?

If you stop paying for PS+, you can't play the games anymore, but once you renew again, your access to the games is unlocked again.

The argument about the games being rented is absolutely weak and a clear sign that you have no real basis on which to discredit the service which you have most likely never even tried.

Please come back when you have a legitimate case as to why enjoying 64 games for $50 bucks is a bad thing.

Heretic961211d ago

By the way... PS4 and Xbox One have not even launched, yet we already have 5 confirmed free games that will be available to PS+ members including Drive Club on day one.

How many Xbox One games is your Gold subscription getting you so far?

And yes, I am aware it is a slimmed down version with only certain cars and tracks available.

BLAKHOODe1211d ago


You apparently missed the joke. I was making fun of Xbox fans discrediting the Playstation Plus service.. I was not being one of them.

Personally, I am a HUGE fan of Playstation Plus, have been a member for a few years now and I am well aware of what a great VALUE it is. I also agree with everything you said. I was an Xbox Gold member for years, as well, but let my subscription expire last year.. I only recently renewed for 6 months (at a great discount), to take advantage of the free games they are giving away. After which, my subscription will expire again as my focus will be on the PS4. BUT, I'll have those free games should I ever go back to my 360 again.

Kingthrash3601212d ago

bf3 ...I thought it was for the eu store....its us? &$@# YEAH!

fsfsxii1212d ago

Is Jet Set Radio for both regions?!
