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.

darthv721512d ago

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

Smoovekid1512d ago

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_Infected1512d ago

@xYakuzaz

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.

BLAKHOODe1512d 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.

shivvy241512d ago

Lol i dont have BF3 so its a win !

specialguest1512d 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.

xPhearR3dx1512d ago

@xYakuzaz

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.

mewhy321511d 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!!!!!

Septic1511d ago

Damn. That is a brilliant deal.

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

Kaneda1511d 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_KELRaTH1511d ago

@xYakuzaz

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.

AlexanderNevermind1511d ago (Edited 1511d ago )

@ SpecialGuest

Where U been?!

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

T21511d ago (Edited 1511d 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)

superbhoy1512d ago

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

angelsx1512d ago

My dream is to play Battlefield in cinema.

badz1491511d 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!

ShwankyShpanky1512d 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.

mrmarx1512d ago

about 7 with updates close to 12 with all dlc

mrmarx1512d ago

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

T21511d 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.

GravelerMagnitude91512d ago (Edited 1512d 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_denton1512d ago

does it come with story only and no multiplayer?

badz1491511d 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_denton1511d 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.

badz1491511d ago

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