The lights are on
Update: An EA representative has commented on the leak, telling us: "Looks like the excitement for Battlefield Premium cannot be contained. For details, please visit Battlefield.com on June 4."
It seems a slip up on the European PlayStation Blog revealed early details of EA's rumored Battle 3 premium service. According to reports, the service will launch on Monday, June 4 for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
Pricing across North America, Australia and Europe are listed as $49,99, £39.99, €49.99, and AU $79.99. A purported fact sheet for the service also surfaced, which says users get access to all future Battlefield 3 expansions two weeks early, unique in-game content, and additional bonus content.
For now, this information is still unconfirmed. Game Informer has reached out to Electronic Arts for comment.

Excluding the gamers who shelled out $60 from "unique events" feels wrong to me. I have no problem with offering the subscription to save a few dollars on maps and detailed stat tracking but everyone should be allowed to participate in community events.
Thanks EA/Dice for turning into another bastardised version of Activision! F$@# the Corprit idea of 'making money for nothing'!
Eh, I only play Battlefield 3 casually. I own it and find it fun to play, but I don't think I get the kind of enjoyment out of it to merit dropping $50 on it. My brother on the other hand will probably be all over this.
Hmmmm maybe.....need money first
