I was looking through the in-game store in Battlefield 3, and I noticed that at the bottom of the "All" tab there was a link listing Premium as being free. I checked it out since it seemed to good to be true, but lo and behold, I seem to have been upgraded to a Premium account. I can only confirm this on the PS3, but maybe it works for Xbox as well? I have since downloaded Armored Kill and Return to Karkland. Can't do better than free!

Works, I can confirm it. Anyway we can get into trouble for this? I would hate to have my account banned or something.

Be careful, EA will not hesitate to ban you for something like this. Not to mention they have been known to remove access to all of your Origin games from a single offense.

I'm not sure if they still do that because it got a lot of media coverage.

Can they nullify or take this back? I assume they probably can and will.

Its probably a glitch, or maybe a weekend trail or something. AWESOME if it sticks, but expect it to go back

I'm doing the latest update which is 1.5GB. Knowing my luck, it'll be "fixed" one I reach the store. Lol.

Lol at this comment. Ban you for what? On what grounds will they ban? Something that is available in their own store at the price of free? Not quite.

I haven't opened my PS3 copy. Should I just pop it in to get the premium?

Yes but it's $59.99 on the PSN store. You can't get it for free unless you access it through the in-game store which sucks for me because I let a friend borrow my BF3 copy a few days ago.

They aren't trying to give this out for free so I doubt this will still be up by tomorrow.

Just opened a copy to get in on this. Why the hell is there a 1.5GB update before I even start playing the game?

How can they get away with banning you for this? I can see taking it away, but it's their fault. For all we know they are being nice.
