Who the hell cares about Medal of Honor? EA has other ways to put cash in their pocket. As yet another sign that gamers are gleefully and willingly selling themselves out further to evil publishers for content that should be part of the initial game purchase, EA has let it be known that their Battlefield Premium service ended 2012 with 2.9 million suckers, err, subscribers. That’s up by almost a million more than what was tallied in October. This brought Electronic Arts an additional $108 million in sales.
While most of those subscribers came from the included bonus with the Battlefield 3 Premium Edition, some of that number was from players purchasing the premium service for $50.
Subscribers who sign up for Premium get access to DLC, offers for in-game items, the ability to reset their Battlelog stats and gain priority in server queues for online games. Which to me translates to gamers being incredibly impatient when waiting to play online and apparently have way to much disposable income. Thankfully EA is always trying to find a solution for both problems.
