Battlefield Premium Info Leaked by Sony
It seems as though the folks in charge of Europe’s PlayStation Blog hit a button they weren’t supposed to, and information about EA’s forthcoming Battlefield Premium Service popped online. Apparently the service—commonly regarded as EA’s competitor with Activision’s Call of Duty Elite subscription service—will be available on June 4, costing £39.99/€49.99/AU$79.99 across the regions in PS Europe’s purview, according to a Joystiq post that caught the error before it was pulled.
Using currency conversion, this more or less confirms the information we had a couple days ago that priced the service at $60 in the United States. However, the release date is much sooner than we’d expected, if the PS Blog is to be believed. The next DLC pack, “Close Quarters,” was also dated for June 4, and priced at £11.99/€14.99/AU$23.95, coming out to about $18 American.
This isn’t the first time an error on Sony’s part leaked some of EA’s plans—in fact, just earlier this month, Sony’s Hong Kong website leaked information about “Rebellion,” the newest DLC pack for Mass Effect 3. Pretty much everything in that leak turned out to be true, so don’t be surprised when Battlefield Premium is available on June 4.
