EA has agreed to make good on its word
to include a free digital copy of Battlefield 1943 inside every package
of Battlefield 3 for the PS3 after suffering the slings and arrows of
fan backlash for failing to do so upon launch.
Attempting to do right by its consumers, EA has posted instructions on
how to digitally obtain Battlefield 1943 on PSN in the coming weeks. According
to its promotional website, Battlefield 1943 will be downloadable
for free with a web voucher in the UK on November 26, in North America
on December 10, and in Asia and Japan on December 17.
EA originally told crowds at E3 to
expect the free game with the Battlefield sequel when it arrived in
October. Later, when the company announced via Twitter is was
replacing it with early access to BF3 DLC, jilted PS3 owners
took their frustrations to the internet, going so far as taking EA to court over its alleged bait-and-switch tactics.
Better late than never, right?
