Ughhh, just ughh.

BFP

 

 

If official servers are apart of this package, I will forever shake my fist.

 

My split personally says more maps would be good. So if  a yearly subscription got me maps earlier, more guns, assignments, co op maps all at a discounted rate, I'd sign up. I am a mere drop of oil in this raping machine.

If they put guns in premium almost everyone will buy it,  not wanting to miss out.  There's always a chance with DICE of a balancing mishap and a fair chance of new weapons being overpowered.  Even if they aren't,  if you get killed often by a DLC weapon you don't have - You'll go buy it for yourself to get some payback.  

 

'Overpowered' relates fundamentally to how often you see a certain weapon in the kill cam,  and naturally everyone will be trying their new toys a lot so you'll see more of them.  DLC weapons will always seem overpowered,  just by distribution.  It will be good for sales.

 

 


Either that or stop playing the game. I know I would rather do that than spend more money on a game I already bought because i'm missing out otherwise.

Any new features they add better include the reduction of suppression.

 

Seriously, spend £100's on a HDTV, £100's more on a HD console, shell out for a game with a good graphics engine and they effectively smear vaseline all over your eyeballs the second someone sneezes in the next room

 

 

 

Seriously, When I signed up for next gen gaming, there was  no "play through tracing paper" clause!

Thank god EA have learned from COD elite mistakes > >

 

This is good move put all the DLC into one package along with a nice bonus. It something decent tbh more devs should do it.....way better than how elite runs.

As long it like 1 month ahead am ok with this hope it like 1week or days....

Details have been leaked online....thoughts

 

"

Battlefield Premium will be priced at £35/$60, according to a new listing on Coolshop.co.uk.

 

The listing, which shows a June 29 release date and a £34.96 price, also carries the following description.

“BF3 Premium Service is 1 code in a box to give the consumers early access to the BF3 DLC expansion packs – Back to Karkand (already released), Close Quarters (releasing June), Armoured Kill (releasing Sept) and End Game (releasing December).”

Battlefield Premium, will most likely be revealed by EA during its press conference. It’ll include the DLC mentioned above, as well as “premium benefits” and a mysterious fifth DLC expansion called Aftermath.

MP1st lists the contents:

  • 20 Maps.
  • 20 New Weapons.
  • 10+ New Vehicles.
  • 4+ New Game Modes.
  • 30+ Assignments.
  • 20+ Dog Tags.
  • Also includes “Premium Benefits” which are made up of skins, camos and most importantly early access to all DLC.
  • These maps, weapons, vehicles game modes assignments and dog tags are spread across the following DLC:
  • Back to Karkand.
  • Close Quarters in June 2012.
  • Armored Kill in autumn 2012.
  • Aftermath in late 2012.
  • End Game in spring 2013."

One thing I dont understand though is how can it give you early access to DLC as this is released on 29th of June yet CQ is due mid June.

So those of us that arealdy got B2K for free, & finished the assigment, if we decide to go premium..were paying a small price for them regardless...

 

A discount price for the B2K folks would of been nice.

Aye it's still a good deal, but for B2K people, I'd be happy with at least a £5 discount. No doubt I'll sign up to this anyway :D

Just to add, we're already getting the DLC a week before on PS3, so will this be a form of early-early release? 

Price sounds ok, not least if you don't already have Back to Karkand.

good point, i should think that ps3 premium earliy release should stack with the ps3 exclusive early release

 

so we currently get dlc a week early and if premium gives everyone 2 weeks early release then.....

 

ps3 should get dlc 3 weeks before advertised release date

 

and xbox should get it 2 weeks before.

 

as for the B2K issue, i would like to see some kind of partial refund of discount for those who have either got it as part of the limited edition pack, or bought it from the store (at least half the price of store price)

New co-op maps would of been a good addition, as the COD Elite included co -op stuff.. Wonder if the 4 new modes are all MP related, or will there be a horde more or something.

Only thing i dont get is how can it be all in when CQ is apparently being released before this package. Who of the regulars is going to not get CQ on the basis that in a further three weeks time they can subscribe to this and get then.....not many I'd guess

Unless from a business point of view they push CQ back to release at the same time as this package

You beat me to it leggy :P

 

I was just thinking myself, if close quaters is coming out in a week or so and we have to wait another couple of weeks after that for the VIP premium package, which will include close quarters and back to karkand, should i buy close quarters asap or wait for the vip pack, which i'll be gettin anyway?

 

and this raises another issue of seperately purchased dlc packs and any discount for purchasing CQ, before the VIP pack

 

we really need some answers, i would love some DICE / EA guidance on this, im really in 2 minds weather to get it asap or wait  :S

You won't have to pay again for something you already have.  

 

They simply want to sell DLC they haven't produced yet - now while the game is popular.  Its because the long term investment they're making to produce DLC makes them nervous if it won't sell at the end of the year because we've all moved on to other games.  

 

I know i'll be playing Borderlands 2 and others later in the year,  so they want to sell me the DLC now while I still love the game.  

 

I don't know about that leaked info,  anyone could have written it.  I'd say wait for the official reveal and i'm sure there'll be a carefully crafted pricing plan for people who already own B2K,  because that's about 90% of us and they have a good reason for wanting premium to sell big.
