It seems like a newer version of Battlefield 3 is coming next month. This is coming from Amazon.ca who listed Battlefield 3 Premium Edition for PS3 and Xbox 360;However, there's currently no box-art available and the listing says that the game will cost $69.99 and the release date is 15 September, 2012. This means we will be able to see EA revealing it at Gamescom 2012, next week. As far as this Premium Edition is concerned, what could it be? An original game with premium subscription, or something completely different? We're still unsure if this news is true or not. Better to treat it as a rumor.
