darn, I need xbox version. :(

Can't wait to get End Game. :whee:

teknoman 03-06-2013 12:41 PM

Sorry for the noob question, is this BF3 + Premium, or Premium (only) for BF3?

EDIT: It says Service so I'm guessing it's Premium only...

Yep, you have to acquire Battlefield 3 separately in order to use this.

skold 03-06-2013 12:51 PM

No good...$30 for base + premium or less is good.

zandbak 03-06-2013 01:08 PM

Can't check out. I get:

The GameStop PC Downloads Store
is currently down for maintenance.

We will be back online shortly and apologize for any
inconvenience this may have caused.

LOL, ok... but that's not how much it costs.

It's like "Ferrari no good, $20 for ferrari + lambo or less is good" I could see if maybe base + premium had been that price in the past or something... but it hasn't!

dealmofo 03-06-2013 01:32 PM

I got through w/ Paypal. Everything working fine.

It was $30 a few days back, but yeah even this is a good deal....

redmonkeyjunkie 03-06-2013 01:47 PM

How much does the base game run? I see the premium edition in stores, base + expansions for 59.99

evila 03-06-2013 01:50 PM

In for 10!

dealmofo 03-06-2013 01:52 PM

I got the Limited Edition on release date on Newegg for $47. $59.99 is a pretty good deal. IMHO

PeteyTheStriker 03-06-2013 01:53 PM

It was $10 on the EA site and Premium was $20 at GMG. I would know, I bought it then :)

JasonKR 03-06-2013 02:31 PM

Just curious. Is it worth to purchase it? I already have battlefield 3 and enjoying it a lot!

xplicitone 03-06-2013 02:39 PM

I highly recommend Premium if you even play it just for a few hours. I've only put like 8 total hours in the base game, got this, and put 5 hours right away on the expansions. It's so much fun. And End Game, the last expansion, is coming out this month which will have an all out Air battle game type! (Of course this depends if you have people to play it with since, IMO, a lot more fun with others you know).



$25 is a great deal for 5 expansions + unlock challenges, etc.

Prologik 03-06-2013 02:57 PM

I got BF 3 premium edition 2 or 3 months ago for the 360 from Amazon for 30. At the time a lot of places had it for $5 cheaper than that but I was a little late. So is what this is being offered now everything the premium edition offers minus the game itself? I checked the BF3 premium prices and they are back up in the $50 neighborhood, so is this why there are a lot of thumbs up?

weamz 03-06-2013 03:00 PM

I tried getting the base game + premium a couple of weeks ago at $30 at greenmangaming but it didn't accept my transaction. When I was finally able get my bank to authorize the transaction the sale had ended. :(

mutha_scratcha 03-06-2013 04:46 PM

That game was great until EA did the big "Cash In"
Selling all the upgrades, and renting all the servers to idiot kids that wanted to play 2 hours long games.
Took all the fun out of it for an occasional gamer that wanted to pop on for a quick 15 minutes game.

Fire up the time machine! I got it for 360 for $30 on Thanksgiving day (Amazon), and $30 for PC shortly before Christmas (Target).

That is...the full, retail Premium Edition.

Yeah, it's worth it IMO. For what it's worth, I really don't like the Armored Kill pack, but I really like the Close Quarters and Aftermath packs (dislike Markaz Monolith with a passion though :lol:). Plus you get access to other weapons like the crossbow. It's fun and super challenging.

Just search "Dice" to get a normal server.

Or use specific criterion to search for servers. Read the rules, get a feel for the admin, play on it...favorite it, return later. I automatically skip all the ones with stupid rules like "NO SHOTGUNS, SNIPER RIFLES MUST HAVE AT LEAST A 7x SCOPE, C4 ONLY ON VEHICLES" etc etc etc :hug:

nanikore 03-06-2013 06:22 PM

EA had me spend $50 on the original and $50 again on premium

...Now they're trying to milk it out as long as they could

Next time I'm gonna wait until BF4 drops to THIS PRICE.

bosoxdanc 03-06-2013 08:59 PM

Awesome deal for $25. I just paid $30 for it last week and do not regret it, but I owned the base game already.

chenga91 03-06-2013 10:39 PM

Does GameStop give you a code to redeem in Origin?

vendrath 03-06-2013 11:05 PM

Had to install the GameStop client to redeem the code. Another utility to tell Windows not to launch at startup... Nice price for the Premium features, though! In for one! Picked up the base game a couple weeks ago on another sale (Amazon, with the 25% off CAG coupon).

ChildishDad28 03-06-2013 11:33 PM

Awesome deal. The last one is yet to be released.

dzap 03-06-2013 11:35 PM

$25 more than I paid for this thing. Still using the $0 glitch they had one weekend last year and didn't revoke (and really had no way to revoke).

Makes me feel better knowing that EA lost a crapton of money that weekend. :D

Extremely unlikely if used. It might have the code, but it will be 'used'. The only place I know where used games have valid codes (speaking from experience) is gamefly. They guarantee it. Good luck.

chenga91 03-07-2013 12:27 AM

Um.. so I'm pretty sure I ordered this, and after the checkout page, it says to allow a day for processing. Usually when that happens, something still shows up in order history, but nothing has. Anyone has any suggestions?

It's weird that the item is still in the cart when I went to the store page...

krew790 03-07-2013 12:29 AM

Meh getting away from EA with how they became such a shitty company. Ever since they left steam the have gone down hill. People need to see how money grubbing EA has become and they are not really there for the users any more.

They made Origin which always had problems, they complain about steam sales saying that it de-values the games, then trying to copy the steam holiday sales ( but instead only $5-$10 off).

Now the DMR is crap where you have to be online to play a game, so when the servers go down that means you can no longer play the games. EA also never really keeps their servers up long due to they don't let the public host servers, most their games last 2-3 years sometimes 1 year.


Good video that explains it
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHp91aqWB7M

So my opinion is EA went so down hill i no longer want they to get my money.
Sorry just my opinion on this company now.

Yes, they do. But you have to download their app to retrieve it. You will be given the option to install it with their 'PC Downloads' app, or get the product code -- which can be redeemed and then installed with Origin.

Slayn 03-07-2013 01:26 AM

Add to cart, checkout, install their crappy app, retrieve the code, redeem in Origin, uninstall Gamestop app.

Thanks for the deal, I bought the game the day it came out with a nice cheap $45-50 deal that included Deadspace 2. Was waiting for a nice price on the Premium package.

lisatty 03-07-2013 01:35 AM

Thanks.. If only free.

Same here. Order history is blank, I can't access my digital downloads page, no email about an order confirmation, but they charge my debit card. I guess they are just confirming that payment goes through before they give me the code?

... not sure how that's EA's fault. Games have been having a ton of sales for years. Not EA's fault that you didn't wait on it or didn't make the most of your early purchase.

Peterdvu07 03-07-2013 07:21 AM

I need this for PS3. PSN is offering $10 off every $50 spent but that's the best I have found so far.

Sorry just my opinion on this company now.

It isn't really possible to defend EA. I like Steam a lot for it's convenience. Steam is better than Origin, but both are DRM. Neither Origin or Steam actually let you own the game. While I don't defend EA, Origin has been pretty good in general for me. I do get a bug sometimes where BF3 won't start for me.

This is absolutely the case where an EA sports game comes out. In a year, not that many people are playing it. EA releases the next year's game, and everyone buys it. The old servers for the old game get shut down.

At least BF3 is a decent game. Terrible design decisions and many flaws with the game, but it has a skill curve and isn't the dumbed-down mess that CoD has become. And BF3 actually has servers, though not with full features or mods. I hate dedicated servers to some degree because of bad admins ("hackers", power trip) and the cost involved to keep one running.

darkpope 03-07-2013 08:43 AM

glad i bought it for $20 last week. still a decent deal though.

joustonline 03-07-2013 12:21 PM

Everytiime i see these deals i wish i could get it, but it requires windows 7, i'm stuck on xp which works fine for me, only games i've ran into that i cant play are just cause 2 and this one. Just about all of the games i play work fine on xp so not gonna upgrade just for 2 games, good deal for everyone thats able to get in on it. I'm stuck with xbox version for now.

jmanok 03-07-2013 12:30 PM

I only got back to karkland because I purchased whatever the preorder bonus was for bf3. Are these other packs just new maps?

Ar.Pi 03-07-2013 12:40 PM

You get get the Premium Edition for $30 on eBay. easily.

I guess its good deal for whoever already have the base game.

Exactly!!!! Waiting next game atleast 2 months unless they release BF4 w Premium for $60. All of us early adopters paid $50 and then $50. I waited and bought one add on and then this so I have spent ~$80 on this game. Arrghh. Next time they wont fool me.:mad:

As you already hv Karkand, you will get 16 new maps, a bunch of new modes (gun-game, tank/air superiority, CTF) and some weapons....Oh and lots of fun...

BF3 is a good game don get me wrong but does it really need the weapon packs, so many dlc maps, ect to get ea money. Dedicated servers would be better look at CSS vac ban would keep the hackers out, and with admin ect you just dont go to that server if you dont like it. There are really bad admins on BF3 servers now to be honest.

Due to BF3 servers not being dedicated you will see less and less when the new game comes out and eventually you will not be able to play it online, look at BFBC2 there was 100 of servers 2 years ago, now you can hardly find 10. So in the 4 years down the road that $100 game you invested in you can not play online any more.

I fell EA doesn't care about the Gamers any more and more about getting money.

randomtofu 03-08-2013 02:09 AM

I think I wait a little longer. Have a feeling price will drop even more in a couple of months.

This deal is only for the PC version of the game. There was an awesome deal I think last year when the in-game store for BF3 PS3 allowed you to buy BF Premium for free. After the mess up EA allowed anyone who bought to free to keep their purchase.

badkitty 03-08-2013 06:57 PM

SICK ! i almost bought this the other night from origin..it was $40 instead of 50....but i fell asleep. I went to theit site today and its full price. I came back here...did a search and BAM!! saved even more money. Downloaded stupid gamestop just to get my CDKEY and inputted into origin and uninstalled gamestop.

. Sweet deal. Don't pass this up

Swifterzor 03-08-2013 07:20 PM

Gamestop is not accepting any of my forms of payment.. I've attempted ordering 4 times now and every one has been cancelled. Forget this.

xyyz 03-09-2013 04:10 AM

never for the ps3, complete shyte

eggbeater 03-09-2013 07:29 AM

Okay I was able to purchase, redeemed the code and did the install. The client shows up as premium but every time I try to log into a server with a new map it "stops working". The other base maps work fine. Anyone else with this problem? Better yet any solutions?

Ovy13 03-10-2013 08:27 PM

Has this worked for anyone? I keep getting "order not processed" errors.
