Fuck everything about this.

EA has been especially busy during the opening half of this year, and that work ethic shows no sign of petering out with more details emerging about the upcoming Battlefield 3 Premium service.
Gone are the days when a game would be sold and that was that, publishers are now really upping their game (pun intended) in offering additional content for the hardcore players, and the Battlefield 3 expansion looks rather tasty indeed, although will set gamers back a cool $50.

When it comes to virtual battlefields, the aptly name title has long since been the holy grail, and the recent release of the third iteration was met with critical acclaim by the majority of gaming outlets. There are plenty of captivating online multiplayer titles out there, but if you’re a master tactician as opposed to a "shoot ‘em up and ask questions later" type of player, Battlefield 3 delivers exactly what you want – and more.
While the PC version is, of course, better than playing on the now dated flagship consoles, I can personally vouch that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are none too shabby, either. As is increasingly the case with titles of this nature, it’s all about the multiplayer; the campaign seems somewhat like a rehash of previous rhetoric, but when the online version can take large chunks from your day with little problem, it doesn’t really matter.
The Premium services offers a healthy inventory of perks, from in-game weapons to dog tags, along with a plethora of improved Battlelog features. There’s no word on whether the five announced map packs will be thrown in as well, but given the hefty price, it would seem a little harsh on consumers not to include them.
Regardless, Premium also offers access to unreleased DLC packs two weeks in advance if you’re a PlayStation 3 owner, so while Xbox 360 users are rewarded with early access on the likes of Call of Duty, the shoe is on the other foot on this occasion.

There’s no word on when the Premium membership will be available, although whispers seem to indicate an imminent release. With a whopping 15 million units sold already cross-platform, any gaming fan, in my opinion, would be a fool to miss this title. Not too sure about the Premium service – especially given the apparent omission of those previously announced maps – but nevertheless, it’s easily the best game I have played this year, and if you’ve been in limbo as to whether to part with your dollars, I would say, buy it now!

I agree with that link that EA is the worst company ever. They wouldn't even put an EA game on my Origin account that i had from like 2007....
Rule 1: You are playing The Game.
Rule 2: Every time you think about The Game, you lose.
Rule 3: Loss of The Game must be announced.

Yeah, I love BF3, but I will not be paying another $50 bucks for anything, and I'm not buying any more map packs. If this is going to be a continuing trend, I doubt I'll have much reason to buy any more of their games...

Everyone seems to be moving in this direction. I think it will be the death of gaming until they wake up. All you'll have is a bunch of rich kids playing.

They are greatly overestimating the economy vs gaming.

Since I play BF3 1-3+ hours a day its worth it for me. U save about 10 bucks in the long run if u were intending to buy all the DLC individually. Plus it has a few extra stuff that is cool.


However the server queue priority over non-premium players is complete and utter bullshit.

anyone that pays for it is telling the entire gaming industry "Yes, this is fine, please continue to do things like this"

If you pay for it and do it this time, expect to have to continue doing it over and over again.

i play b3 all the time on the box and premium is def worth it. Close quarters is so much fun plus all the extra stuff you get. although its like the only game i play so its worth more to me than it might be for you.
