According to BF 3 Premium video, the map packs are exclusive to that for 2 weeks. Don't forget Sony also has a week exclusivity also.

Looks like we won't get the DLC until late this month. :(

Has that been confirmed? PS3 has the one week early exclusive window but that was before premium came into play. People that buy premium get the maps two weeks early and on the video it says that would be today. So unless PS3 gets it today and Xbox premium people don't get it until next week, both consoles should get the maps today, if you buy premium.

God damn....just the updates is 2.4 gigs on the console? How could updates possible be that big? Or am I mistaken and the maps are included in the update.

Damn it......dude I barely have any space on my original 10g harddrive....espiecally not 2.4gs worth..then these maps are going to be another couple gigs.

Damn.....my cheapass self might have to break down and buy a bigger hard drive....or delete almost everything on my drive now......shitty. One game taking up that much space is brutal

You aren't going to be able to play until after the E3 press conference when they release premium and what not officially

If you are getting all four packs then its well worth it. They're all going to be $15 so you are saving $10 there alone

Nope. You can use it for just about anything you can use a HDD for. (Installing games to it is possible).

So remember a while ago when I was complaining about spawning backwards all the time? From what I gather it was only me suffering from it so I came across as crazy. I notices this is the patch notes a few minutes ago..

Players will now spawn on the Radio Beacon looking in the same direction the Beacon is facing. The Beacon always faces in the direction the player is facing when it is planted. Previously the Beacon’s direction had no impact on the player’s spawn direction.

I knew I wasnt crazy....

I'm quite interested in the delivery method of the Premium map packs. I already have B2K as I imagine most of us do so I'd greatly prefer if they were released as redemption codes rather than tied to our VIP pass or EA account. The value would pretty much be negated to me if there is no way to get a code that I can trade for B2K. Of course, we get tons of value from Battlefield content but I would just buy them individually or possibly wait for a sale otherwise.

I've been away from BF3 for far too long but the new map pack may give me the incentive I need to start again. The custom server mess has really made me dread having to scrounge around and favorite official servers. I just have no interest whatsoever in servers run by the players.

On another note, I'm really hoping one of the hundreds of fixes finally separates conquest assault from conquest for B2K maps? Please?
