This news is for the people in the Philippines. All EA games for some reason arrive here on time with options of pre- ordering to earn bonuses, Battlefield 3 will have the same treatment. If your planning to get Battlefield 3 on day one, go Pre-order in any Datablitz branch, and you will recieve some interesting goodies.
When you pre-order in any Datablitz branch, you earn the limited edition of Battlefield 3 which will include 4 battlefield maps - Wake Island, Strike to Karkand, Gulf of Oman, and Sharqi Peninsula.
Since you pre-ordered your copy, you get a Steel Bookcase and the Physical Warfare Pack that includes- Exclusive Type 88 LMG with Bipod, Exclusive Flechette Ammo for DAD-12 Shotgun, Exclusive Flash Suppressor for SKS Sniper Rifle, and Day 1 Access to the DAD-12 Shotgun.
All you have to do to pre-order is head over to any Datablitz branch and cough up a down payment of P1,000 if your going for the PS3 or Xbox 360 copy, or P500 if it's the PC before October 24, 2011. Earn your claim stub and receipt and present them when you head there in October to get your Battlefield 3 copy. Don't keep the stub for long because it will only last from October 25 to November 13. Just get it on day 1 to be sure.
Going to do my pre-order as soon as I get some free time this weekend. Since a lot of my friends are excited for Battlefield 3, and are mostly PS3, I'll definitely get the PS3 version. Oh the hype!
