EA Reinstates Battlefield 1943 Bonus For BF3 PS3 Owners
EA shouldn't get away with being a "de-gifter" (check "Seinfeld" reference if unfamiliar).
This past summer, EA promised PlayStation 3 owners that if they bought Battlefield 3, they'd receive a free copy of the downloadable title, Battlefield 1943. But just around the time BF3 hit store shelves, EA backed out of the deal. The company is now facing a lawsuit for reneging on the deal.
Maybe it was the lawsuit that did it, but EA has now confirmed that PS3 owners who bought BF3 will indeed receive the 2009 PSN game. Apparently, there were some "misunderstandings" about the deal in question, so EA has decided to reinstate the bonus for PS3 owners "beginning this month." Our friends in Europe can grab Battlefield 1943 for free on November 26, while US gamers have to wait until December 10.
