It only took a lawsuit to get EA to realize they owed PlayStation 3 owners a free copy of Battlefield 1943, and the company today announced they will do just that: everyone who purchased Battlefield 3 for the PlayStation 3 will get a free copy of the downloadable title.

EA says it was a “misunderstanding”, but in reality, there was no misunderstanding: EA didn’t follow up on their promise and instead gave PS3 owners something else and of much less value: one week early access to Battlefield 3 DLC.

EA has set up a new site at 1943redemption.battlefield.com, where vouchers for BF1943 will be given out. The game will be available for Europeans on November 26, while Americans will have to wait until December 10 to redeem their copy of Battlefield 1943.

    Despite my neverending hatred for consoles, I am still glad – this one time – that PS3 players were able to ‘persuade’ EA into holding their promise and receiving their copy of BF1943. EA deserved a dick up its ass for not keeping what they promised to PS3 players.

    Remember, this is coming from a PC players, who despises consoles for what they have done to PC gaming; knock yourselves out. :)

    So, how does EA/DICE plan on compensating the thousands of PC players who are unable to launch the game or crash constantly after this week’s patch?

    Most people who play Battlefield already own that game and the ones who have never played it wont give a shit either after they play it..It was a great game before BBC2 and still is but is a Big step backwards in the world of Dice games..I would rather get something exclusive with BF3 then a game that is a few years old and not on Dices priority to support….

    Finally, EA are starting to realise their BS may result in a lawsuit, it’s what they deserve, we got what they PROMISED (Despite them breaking away from promise) Hopefully, just hopefully, they will stick to more promises in the future.
