thanks for the heads up OP, in for one :)

I'll pick it up on the way to work and then stare at it all day, waiting until I can get back home to play it....

Honestly, who's played it and what is their thought on it?


Best competitive shooter MP on console currently. Large maps even with the teams capped at 12 v 12.

Single player and co-op are varying degress of mediocre (co-op) and pretty crappy (single-player.) DO NOT BUY IF YOU AREN'T GOING TO PLAY MP. If you don't have online, rent it b/c the SP is about 4-5 hours to slog through.

Maybe a Black ops complete edition is coming soon...


None of the CoD since 4 have had any type of complete edition, and that CoD 4 GotY edition only had the map pack included for the first print run (which lasted a month or two.) No complete edition for WatW, MW 2, or BLOPS means Activision just doesn't do that.

this was extra nice with the random $10 credit email they sent me due to a local bb closure. bf3 for $11 and change is definitely my tipping point. thanks for sharing, op

Tempted but I couldnt get into the beta and dont see myself caring much for the MP. Is the SP any good at all. Good for trophies?

The single player trophies were pretty easy. I bought this game on launch when amazon gave a $20 credit with it among all of the hype. The single player was pretty boring though, it basically copied COD's single player but worse. I just traded the game in last month, after I got tired of the pop-in texture and the graphics are actually a downgrade compared to bad company 2(on consoles). I would not recommend paying $20 for the single player, multiplayer sure.

This is better than MW3, MP is still going on, on the 360. I played both games and am a fan boy of neither, I owned MW3 first. But overall I think BF3 is a much better game. More team oriented and it takes a little more skill to kill someone than in MW3. Buy it, you won't regret it.

There's actually more players on the PS3 ver, at least when the game came out, looks like it still remains that way check out the stats

Anyone know why Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition is still $39.99?

I don't consider QTEs gameplay. This "game" is about as deep as the mini games on a disney DVD.

I think it has to do with the greatest hits edition being sold for $20 not being a full game. Even if you buy it new, it does not contain a VIP Pass which unlocks 4 new maps, a few new game modes, and some game modes on certain maps which cost another $9.99. So I guess with a $10 difference for the ultimate hits edition you get the onslaught DLC and BF1943.

If this game is only worth playing for Multiplayer, i think i will pass. I would bite if the deal were for the Limited Edition. Although you could probably go instore to some random cashier and talk your way into a pricematch, dont feel like the headache lol

the limited edition is basically the first print version, if you can find it at bestbuy it's likely going to be $19.99

Limited Edition is an Outlet Item now priced at $24.99 worth the extra $5 if you can find it though.

Ya i know it is the first print version, however, bestbuy has the LE on its website for 59.99 still, so i assume they have a different SKU? PS3 Version.
I dunno, i might go by my store later to check, needed to go by there soon anyway.

Thanks OP. Grabbed one for 360. Never played a Battlefield game but have heard really good things. Have MW3 for my ps3 but got pretty bored of it.

Also didn't get to read all 6 pages cause I'm at work but The Darkness 2 used is $24.99 on Bestbuy.com. paired with the B2G1 you can.get a decent deal. Got D2, DR:OTR and the Sabateur for $41 after tax with ship to store.

After playing the awful BF3 beta I promised myself I wouldn't pick up BF3 until it hit the $20 bargain bin... even though I wanted to buy it. Thanks OP!

Is there any way to switch your order to a different console or will I have to just buy a second copy and return the first?

For those getting this game via this deal, don't forget that owners of BF3 get BF1943 FREE!

You have to go to THIS site and register for a DL code though. All you really need is an EA account as far as I know.

That pushed me over the line thanks

I don't know how much I liked it last time, but for 20 bucks with BF 1943 then I can deal with it.

Don't forget to add that it's only for ps3

Apparently they were supposed to put it on the ps3 disc as a bonus but didn't so that is why they are giving it out free to ps3 owners only

That might be enough to push me over the edge. I have an in-store pick up to do today anyhow, I'll take a looksie.

Eh. It says Battlefield Voucher Redemption For the PS3 right at the top of the screen. So at most people waste 5 seconds going there to find out it's only the PS3 version that gets the game.:booty:
