Free BF3 With Origin ME3 Preorders

EA's Origin Website is now offering a free copy of Battlefield 3 with preorders of Mass Effect 3, BioWare's upcoming action/RPG sequel. This seems to cover both the standard edition for all platforms and the PC-exclusive digital deluxe edition.

Well, apparently it was all a mix up?
I took a look at it today and . . .
Important Note: ME3 pre-order does not include a bonus copy of Battlefield 3

LOL!

Edit: Apparently response was so good, they stopped the offer.

I'll just read the WIKI to see how the story ends.

No Steam, no sale.

Nah, BF3 is just a pretty run shoot and die game--nothing to compare with the BF games that proceeded it. They are so desperate to get people to play BF3 they are giving it away--lol. And I actually played and owned the others, but after playing the alpha and beta I knew I wouldn't buy it.

It seems like they are desperate for more BF3 players if they are doing this. Millions of people who (unlike me) don't see Origin as a deal-breaker were going to buy ME3 anyway most likely. Or am I looking at it wrong?

BF3 has a pretty steady community for the most part, I think it has more to do with leveraging one property with another to ensure a high number of preorders at $60 as Sepharo mentioned.

I wouldnt want another game in origin, I've got BF3 already on it. Never understood why they never placed it on steam, soon as I've finished playing BF3 origin is switched off.

This offer doesn't seem to be worldwide. The german store only mentions in-game items (3 weapons, 1 armor; the amazon preorder has 1 weapon, 1 armor) as a pre-order bonus.

And unless I'm totally blind, it's not available to Australians...

God I fucking hate this regional BS... We're 1.07 US to our dollar and it's till 79 bucks for ME3 + no BF3.

49 AUD (so about 45ish USD), just have to wait for delivery. No competition...

My guess is that it's more about convincing people to buy at the $60 price point instead of waiting for the ever-sooner deals for PC and used market for consoles.

But then again it's only on Origin so maybe the prices will stay $60 for a while.

should be the other way around.

Well, at the moment BF3 is still $60 on Origin. So you can think of ME3 as the free one if you prefer; it would be the same deal either way.

LOL. Got to love the "Please order this game. We put a lot of money into it, and we expect it to be purchased. We'll throw in this piece of crap game for free, if you buy this game." shit.
