5.0 out of 5 stars BF3 Limited Edition plus Premium - 2 keys December 26, 2012
By William
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Premium|Verified Purchase
PC Version Download contains 2 Keys.
- Keys can be Copy & Pasted into Origin
- Battlefield 3 LE Key: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
- Premium Service Key: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX

The 1st key contains Battlefield 3 Limited Edition, and Back to Karkand map pack.
The 2nd key contains Battlefield 3 Premium Upgrade, and all Expansion packs, and all extras.

I already owned Battlefield 3 Limited Edition when I purchased this
I used the "Premium Service Key" to upgrade my BF3 to Premium, it worked perfectly
just opened origin, clicked on Origin Menu, Chose Redeem Product code, pasted my code, and Viola, I have everything.

I pasted the "Battlefield 3 LE key" into my Son's Origin, and he now has BF3 limited edition, and the Back to Karkand Expansion.

All this costed me the same price as the upgrade alone.

I hope this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, I got two keys with the boxed "Premium Edition" November 25, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Premium
I've been wondering (as many others have) if you get two separate keys with "BF3 Premium Edition" (so I could upgrade my Limited Edition account to Premium), and stopped by Best Buy today... I asked a few guys in the gaming section if they knew if the "Premium Edition" (i.e. Game + Premium, not the "premium service" which still costs twice the price) came with two separate codes, and none of them knew, but the third guy I asked decided to buy the game himself to find out. He said he had planned on buying it anyway, so why not now, so he could answer my question. He bought it, opened it, showed me it had two codes (one for game + "headstart kit" and another for Premium), so I bought my self a copy. I got home, went into Origin to "redeem code" put the premium code in, and even though in Origin, it still says "Battlefield 3 Limited Edition," it downloaded Close Quarters and Amored Kill (I already had Back to Karkand from the Limited Edition), and I can play it now. :-) This is contrary to what EA Support (help.ea.com, live chat) told me, but yes, the boxed version of "Premium Edition" did come with two separate codes and worked to upgrade my Limited Edition to include the premium content, plus I still have the regular game code, I can use for a second computer when friends are over or to give to a friend, all for only $25. :-) I can't say for sure if that's also true for the downloaded version, but at least I know the boxed version is like that. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars BF3 good, BattleLog okay, Origin bad November 30, 2012
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Premium|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Game is great, unfortunate that Origin and BattleLog are required. Starting the game is a chore, you have to wade through multiple applications which constantly try to sell you Battlefield Premium and other things. Even single player requires these steps.

Seriously - Origin is just plain bad, there is nothing good about it. It is like a broken version of Steam, with extra suck added in.

The game is great, awesome graphics, sound, you know the stuff an awesome game has. My problem arises with origin and battlelog however. To play campaign(single player, no internet connection needed) you actually need to press play from origin, which will then launch the battlelog site, where you then have to click play. So basically, you need to be online to start playing campaign. So, if you're on a laptop with no internet connection, you can't play campaign. Battlelog also gives me an error online whenever I press 'quick match' from their site, so the only way to play multiplayer is by manually selecting servers.

EDIT:
As of a few days ago Origin updated and allowed for offline play by selecting 'go offline' from within origin. Rating increased by one star. Also, it does come with a 'multiplayer head start' kit, labelled 'welcome pack' in the Origin addons. I didn't decrease any stars for that(I thought I didn't get a head start kit) so no increase here. The fact still remains that there is no in-game way to select servers and the game must be launched for each individual server you join, thanks to battlelog.

very good game, the multiplayer is very fun compared to other shooters...lots of teamwork is involved. a complaint i have is the whole process for downloading it. you must use a program called origin and then go through a lengthy process to actually get it going. the game uses ur browser to run the game. its a great deal judgeing that this is well under what it would cost to get the game and premium membership. the singleplayer story sort of lacks and doesnt live up to its full potential. (which is why it didnt get 5 stars) but this is more a muliplayer game anyway which more than makes up for the singleplayer campaing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Game is super awesome, Origin is a piece of crap. July 14, 2013
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Premium|Verified Purchase
Why, oh why, does EA even ruin there own games?
Even BF Bad Company 2 had a server browse in game, but this?? This is crap!
All it is is to advertise there products everytime you want to launch BF3.

First, I have to open Origin. and view an EA ad, exit out of ad.
Then, Open server browser in the web browser and look for a server. Once I find a server, I click play.
Next, an addin is required to launch the game??
Then the Origin client receives the data from the built in web browser addon and starts to "Sync" cloud data.
Finally, the game opens to the server you choose.

WTH EA! Why do you purposely make your own game a hassle to turn on. I'm telling you, its for the advertisement.
Even IW is smart enough to keep their game browsers "IN-GAME". God, EA, just leave already, your destroying your own game by design.
