damn, just opened my bestbuy copy and the update is 1.5 gb. It's freaking slow in updating. It will be funny if the glitch is fixed after we just finished updating.

I'm not sure on what grounds EA can ban someone for something like this but maybe the can somehow prevent you from getting the rest of the map packs when they are released? IDK. I already had BF Premium through a gameshare so I'm not sure why I downloaded it on my main. Hope it doesn't come back to bite me in the ass lol

They have the grounds to take it away, sure, though an outright ban seems very unreasonable. I'll take the chance though, I've a second online pass

Couldn't we get them to give us something else then like armored kill for free as a gesture of kindness?

It's EA, so they're probably going to be total assholes and ban everyone that downloaded it for free...lol. If not, it's definitely getting taken back =/

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.


You clearly don't know how EA has been known to operate.

Swearing on a forum = Banned for harassment

Glitching in a game = Banned for cheating

Downloading content unintentionally being given away for free = Banned for stealing.

I'm not saying you WILL get banned, but to think that you are somehow protected because this was posted in their store is foolish. We are talking about potentially thousands of people here walking away with like, $ 50 worth of content here, for free. I think they will likely just take away the premium account privileges simply due to how many people have gotten in on this. If it were a far fewer amount then they would likely throw out some bans.

There is always the possibility that this is intentional, maybe some Tokyo Game Show promotion or something.

I had to update as well, even though I have PS+. I did play BF3 a little after getting Plus a year ago, but haven't played it recently. How does the automatic updating work?

Looks like I missed out too.

Damn it, they just fixed it.

I just refreshed the screen and the price went back to free. But it won't go further.

Just got it and am downloading all three expansions.
They'll most likely just revoke Premium status. Anything else would be unreasonable.

Not really lol. I played the SP and a little of the MP. Always meant to return after I played a few games in my backlog since it's one of the few shooter games that I actually liked the MP in. It just seems more.. realistic?

We should tell IGN so they do a story on this and if EA bans us IGN will say WTF.

Damn, I hope not. Just revoke the premium account of those who got it for free. Though I wouldn't be surprised if I'm banned by monday.
