The lights are on
Update: EA said it does not comment on rumor or speculation.
The battle for first-person shooter supremacy may be extending beyond the battlefield. Electronic Arts will announce a premium content service for Battlefield 3 on June 4, writes Battlefieldo. The rumor comes from an "unofficial" but "reliable source," who apparently leaked the date and first details. According to the report, signing up for the service will land players content drops. The first planned drop adds a premium knife, and new soldier and weapon camo, as well as black dog tags to the game.
Battlefieldo has more info, as well as details for new DLC. Electronic Arts has not responded to this rumor as of yet. Odds are, we won't hear anything more until June 4, the first day of E3, which also happens to be the day of EA's press conference.

i saw some comments about the quoted lines and laughed. kinda makes you wonder if "Battlefieldo" is a valid source to draw off, seeing as they got the game and service completely wrong.
Same old EA -_- Following the activision route, except doing it in a more evil way. Yet another franchise they ruined! BF3 is nowhere as good as previous battlefield games.
I read the headline and shook my head in disgust. It's one thing to have a pay service... but to say that they want to copy ELITE? Ridiculous. NO ONE should ever copy ELITE. It shouldn't be hard to surpass and bury it, actually.
Well, they already had Battlelog but ok. If were on the issue of EA copying Elite, then lets not forget where Elite copied. Bungie.net. Everything except for the money scam is the same as Bungie.net. Well, I should say was. Either way, Bungie did have the same thing that Elite did. Just one difference, no DLC or money was used. Custom classes were not a part of Halo so I do not classify that as a difference.
I want new maps, vehicles, and weapons; not some little aesthetic content pack. Hopefully these are just what you get for signing up, not the actual meat of the service.
Premium service? EA? Not a rumor. True. It's EA! Besides that, DICE are too much of a pussy developer to say no to EA.
it better not cost any damn money but considering that its EA, it definitely will
Whatever Big Brother do eventually little brother do...
i first thought the rent a server was a good idea, but now it takes me a while to find a good server without extra rules, tickets and etc.. smh
Well playstation better get the good end of the stick now or I will be mad
I wouldn't be surprised, but I guess we'll have to see on June 4. Hopefully this is worth it.
After all that hype about Battlelog, now they want to do this? Interesting EA... very interesting.
What? Battlefield cant do there own thing
