Battlefield 3 premium
EA has announced that its Battlefield 3 Premium subscription has reached an impressive 3.5 million members. Back in February, we reported that Premium had almost 3 million members, so it looks like the service is seeing steady sales, even after BF3 has been over a year and a half on the market. EA said that the Premium service has resulted in over $120 million in additional revenue.

Premium members have access to all DLC for free, and a bunch of other goodies. The best part of Premium these days though, is that all Battlefield 3 Premium members will get access to the upcoming BF4 beta.

    i’ve only done 4 of the 6 co-ops, i don’t care for them and won’t be missing them in BF4.
    but i’ve played BF3′s single-player only once in its entirety, and replayed a few of the missions a couple of times. it was wack and unnecessary, and i wish that there wouldn’t be a single-player in BF4 so that it could be a game built ONLY for multiplayer modes.
    as for the argument (which i don’t know is valid, it may or may not be) that there are two separate teams working on singleplayer and multiplayer, so scrapping one doesn’t necessarily make the other better… still. almost all single-player FPS games (esp. based on modern weaponry/combat) in the past several years have been generic linear bullshits based on COD4. so with one less singleplayer game like that being released, and hopefully with lesser still, maybe a trend would be that the only singleplayers to be released are singleplayer exclusives, instead of singleplayer campaigns being tacked on to games primarily known for multiplayer content. and then maybe we’ll see some good singleplayer FPS games.

      COD 4 had a very good singleplayer and multiplayer, COD4 was the only game were i would play singleplayer several times… And didnt they state that 2 seperate groups have worked on multiplayer and singleplayer for BF3 before? or i am i getting mixed up?

      Personally they should add more time in the singleplayer therefore making BF4 released in 2014/2015 instead of it being released this year…
      look NAYOCHILL, the problem isnt the lack of DICE being bothered with the singleplayer, its the lack of time that they have with the worst company : EA

      BC1& BC2 Had a great campaign and multiplayer because those 2 games werent rushed unlike BF3 was and so will bf4!

    …and the fact that you may as well seeing as (at this point) the price of the last DLC and Premium were identical.

    With other words: 3,5 million players still like bf3 out of the 10 million who bought it. I think bf4 might get 5 million sales at most.. Unless EA does something good for once.. DICE tries so hard to make the game as good as possible, but EA is holding them back. :/

    Tired of hearing that premium get it for free. If so then why is ea boasting about $120,000,000 extra revenue….
