Activision has been doing well with Call of Duty Elite and, not to long after the paid service debuted, rumors arose regarding EA’s implementation of such a subscription service for Battlefield 3. Now, it seems Sony has jumped the gun and revealed the existence of the Premium service ahead of its (supposedly) E3 reveal.
