I can't find such link...

I just finished downloading the update, and am in the "ALL" tab, but see nothing regarding some "free" link?

When I go down in the "ALL" tab, it shows premium, but the price says $49.99.

Anyone that can provide assistance?

Edit: Oh shit. You gotta scroll almost all the way down in the tab. Wow. Just downloaded those unlocks.

Thanks mewman! He said you can just go directly to the store to download.

Shadowkast also recommends downloading through battle log/battle feed.

EA cannot ban you for this. Stop overreacting. It's not an exploit, its clearly a mistake on their part. They cannot ban you for their error.

I go to a shoe store and buy a pair of Nike's for 40 dollars, the same pair I saw in another store that was going for 120 dollars. 2 days later the store realizes oops, we mispriced this. Are they going to call me and tell me I'm banned for getting the shoes for 40 when they should have been 120?

Don't be ridiculous!

I'm in the UK, and this isn't available here. When I log in to my US account it doesn't have anything in the store at all. Is it kosher on here to hand my US account login to someone to see if they can grab it for me?

The way PS3 downloads usually work is that they're available to all other accounts on that machine. Does anyone know if this works for this?

You are banned from breathing the air in the store!

Oh well, I'd rather play vanilla BF3 on PC than Premium on PS3.

This is EA we are talking about here.

Of course there is no way they can come back and charge you $$$, but they could revoke the game easily (since it's digital) or even ban you.

I don't think they would take the extreme and actually ban someone for clicking a link right in their own game, but there's a slight risk. Will be interesting to see how long it remains "free". The cool thing is apparantly not only do I we get the Premium content, but also the digital version of the game to install right on the PS3. Not that it's a big deal since you already had to own the game in the first place, but it probably runs a bit better directly off the HDD and also now people can possibly trade-in the disc version.

I greatly appreciate it OP, however, how IN THE HELL did you find this? I re-read "the OP (your OP)" and to have caught this like you did is freaking amazing. Seriously. I mean, crazier things have happened BUT not only did you spot it but you had the faith to try it out and you are damn right, "You can't do better than free!"

It just sorta dawned on, "How in the hell did the dude set his hook on this one?" It is pretty damn unbelievable. Thanks, again.

I think you're mistaken. Am I right in thinking that you're in the EU, trying to download from a US account? I am too - i know that won't work. My thinking is that the store is IP blocked, and therefore in order to see anything on the US store you need to be in the US with a US account. I'm asking if someone in the US could log in with my US account. Given all the people in the US with US accounts that are still saying it works fine, I'm hopeful.

I opted to dl the expansion packs directly through the PS Store as opposed to doing it through the BF3 in game store.

It froze twice on me. That was enough for me.

Same. I can only find downloads to the map packs in the calendar screen. Can't find anything else to download. I see strategy guides and stuff but you have to download them from the web. I honestly think these premium menus are confusing.

I did the same thing a few hours ago. Downloading from the in game menu froze my system 1 time. However, when I downloaded from my history everything went smoothly.

No. First download & install the three small downloads. This will unlock the 3 large map packs. You then need to purchase ($0,00) the large map packs & download accordingly.

Yeah, the 100k download unlocks premium access to your bf3 game. Once you download and install the 100k file, go back to your bf3 menu. You'll see you now have the premium version. Scroll down, click on premium and you can download the dlc packs.

US ps3 bought in US. EU account and US account won't work. Maybe because the EU account is the main account

Yup still works. Redeem Premium in game and jump out and DL all the free content you can find in the PSN store afterword. The in game BF store froze on me as well.

I wonder if BF Premium is going free for PS+ members?
