Battlefield 3 Premium Edition launching September for $70

More EA news from Gamescom: the Battlefield 3 Premium Edition will be launching in September, and it'll be bringing a Battlefield Premium membership that allows access to all the downloadable content packs. You'll get Back to Karkand, Close Quarters, Armored Kill, End Game and Aftermath, plus the actual Battlefield 3 game, all for $70 (€60 in Europe and £50 in the UK).

Also included with the Premium Edition will be a Multiplayer Head-Start Kit, which "will automatically unlock 15 different weapons, gadgets and vehicle upgrades so new players can immediately jump in". EA's press release states the Premium Edition will be available in the UK on September 13, so we assume it will launch in other territories close to this date.

Remove the requirement for Origin and then we'll talk.

I don't like Origin at all, but it really isn't that bad if all you're doing is using it to launch the game. For everything else, there's Steam.

No, what's bad is that we have to use Battlelog to launch Origin to launch BF3, when a crack proved early on that Origin does not need to be running in order to launch the game. In addition, the patching was no easier, since every hotfix is 5 GB anyway.

Then there's the fact that the "true BF2 successor" was a CoD clone with bigger maps and vehicles, with four maps costing 15$
