I could be wrong, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit if it was true. They seem to enjoy making statements then either retracting them, or doing the opposite.

I recall that as well. I don't think you're wrong at all.

If so, goodbye BF.

Activision cod is a hacker's paradise and because of the p2p you have to just deal with it.


Only company is maybe Blizzard but not every company has constant WOW millions coming in where they can spend 10 years working on a game lol.

Only problems I have had with BF3 as of late was the game crashing whenever the map changed, however this only happened maybe from the last patch or so, I still haven't tried it with the new patch.

Also EA or DICE has not said they are doing this, they are considering it. Didn't EA's CEO say something similiar before? BF3 is not going to be introduced with sub fees

i would have NEVER put the time in to actually learn to like BF3 if i was paying monthly. I would have ended up getting a single month and then quitting before i paid month 2 and/or learned to play/enjoy bf3.

I'm already done with EA. Stardock is releasing the next Sins of a Solar Empire game and Elimental looks great too. I think I will buy those instead and enjoy games that take us back to the roots of PC gaming.

Sure its not a shooter, but that doesn't mean I won't keep playing BF3 with the content available now. As long as they patch it then it should be fine. I don't plan on buying any future DLC though.

I don't think they would actually do this...
I could see it happening to the COD franchise, because there are so many more people who buy into it just because everybody does.

I would not be heart broken about this. I would see it as an opportunity to uninstall Origin being the optimistic person I am.
