Been waiting for this to drop to 5 bucks for the longest time. Haven't really played an army shooter since BC2. Is it worth the nab if I want the premium edition? I feel like I'd be content with just the base game but from what I've heard it gives you a big advantage in multiplayer, good thing if I end up getting into it.

Thanks for posting, I missed out when the C&C Ultimate Collection was on sale a few weeks back, so this is a nice pick-up.

It's good but you are probably better off if you wait for a "complete" sale which I think has been around $7 before.

$4 after GMG20-JLKSA-7A8HA

 

 

 

This deal has me sooo close to installing Origin.  That's a killer price on BF3... but nope.

The code doesn't work for me on checkout for the expansion pack. Am I doing something wrong here?

I feel like I'd be content with just the base game but from what I've heard it gives you a big advantage in multiplayer, good thing if I end up getting into it.

The major advantages are basically all weapons/vehicles unlocked and preferred joining status for servers.  One of the best overall weapons is M16a3 which is your starter weapon for the Assault class.  Get premium if you think you'll play this game a long time.  The base game and close quarters for free should good enough for a casual player.  Plus remember that BF4 will be released in October too.

Hmm, it definitely comes up $19.99 for me - are you in the US? Do you have any sort of coupon or credit?

Are you sure you guys aren't confusing BF3 Premium (Upgrade) for $14.99 with BF3 Premium Edition (Base Game AND Upgrade) for $19.99?

 

The $14.99 requires you already own the base game.

I think your thinking of the shortcut pack.  The premium edition gives you all the DLC map packs, which IMHO add a ton of great variation to the maps.  I dont think you really get any advantage in multiplayer but it gives you alot more games to choose from.

 

The shortcut pack is the one that gives you some weapons and vehicles for each class, and even then it doesnt give you the good weapons, you still have to work for those, so its really not worth it

$20 is extremely tempting, I think I might finally take the plunge.

Oh, that was the premium addon, not the full game+addon price.   sorry about that.

Most Wanted for Vita $20.99 as well, only other thing that's somewhat notable.  Hopefully Amazon will match it.

19.99 for premium is the cheapest BF3 has been right?  Cheaper than Amazon's price during May-ham?


That's because real men play FPS's and nothing says "real man" like a bunch of sale obsessed bargain-hunting shopaholics.

Is BF3 solid on the single player side? Is there still a multi community?

The SP in BF3 really apes that want to be cinematic style of COD, it's OK but really an after thought.  The Co-Op missions are actually pretty neat but there's only 6 or 7 of those.  For MP there's a ton of people playing it on all platforms but PC the greatest.  Any time of day you'll have hundreds of servers on the PC with people playing.  My friends and I have been playing an hour or two almost every night since launch.

Is there anyway to get Premium cheaper for PS3? I'm a day 1 owner, and a battlefield fanatic, but I felt so screwed over by premium I could never bring myself to buy it. I own BF3 on PS3 and PC, but with BF4 around the corner it seems almost pointless to buy premium now, escpecially since all the content is out.

Thanks OP, grabbed Dead Space 3 for $20 (yeah, it'll probably be cheaper on Black Friday but still..)

 

Anyone have any opinions on the Mass Effect 3 Digital Deluxe upgrade?  I have the base game chilling in the backlog, but the dog and 'From Ashes' DLC seem legit.

Grabbed BF3 for $5 with the free CQ DLC. I hate the huge open maps so I might actually be able to get into the game on the CQC maps.
