After some controversy, it appears as though PS3 owners will finally be getting their free Battlefield 1943.
Have you seen how you have to redeem it? A lot of hassle for an admittedly very cool game. I want to know why it wasn't included on the disc in the first place? Its not for lack of space...
a lot of hassle? lol.. do you want it or not? sheesh, people complain about everything nowadays. =/ The whole process seems very straightforward to me.
its was probably going to be the same way if it was released day one. beside i dont know why everyone it bitching about a game that only has 2 maps 3 weapons and 1 plane. when battlefield 3 is the same damn thing with more in it. for someone to just go class action lawsuit really is cheap. what 10 bucks really going to hurt you. when you spend that everyday on lunch or snacks probably.
Its about time ... thank you Dice.
Well why couldn't be on the disc and they email us an unlock code. I don't think that is too much to ask for.
"DICE stated that it was a misunderstanding" No misunderstanding, the lawsuit hurt them bad so now they're backtracking.
Oh America....you and your lawsuits.
Well that lawsuit did just end up getting what they had said they were giving. They would have lost, false advertising/bait and switch.
(bunch of whinners) I was told i was going to be famous, should i sue the person that told me or fame . better yet i will whine about then it will be given to me. (Y.F.L)
So PS3 users are getting one-week early access AND 1943? What about Xbox and PC users? *Off to my lawyer for a lawsuit....and eat a sammich*
I don't have a PS3, but I love DICE. Give them BF1943 for free, when the game is outdated anyway. And give them a week early DLC access. How about take away the week early DLC, and give them 1943. People didn't care about the week early, so if they took it away would they get mad?
Of course You think people are good and they don't look for teeny-tiny opportunities to throw a lawsuit at someone?
Didn't this game come out years ago? I know it's still got a few hundred players on it, but it's definitely not as competitive as it was back then.
Prolly b/c they were getting sued over it. Serves them right, don't say your giving something and then wait until after the game comes out to say your not and replace it with something we have to pay for. sllshrm - 1943 was not just for pre-orders. Karkland was for pre-orders, but anyone who didn't was offered to pay for something 1 week early.
Umm...correct me if I'm wrong but 1943 was only available for pre-orders. And Karkand is free for those pre-orders. So what do you have to pay for?
that lawsuit changed everything
what happens if i bought battlefield 1943 already can i give my code to a friend
Wonder if they are about to pull back the 1 week early access. I keep thinking it takes around 2 weeks for them to get it on the PSN. Just saw a tweet that they are wrapping up the DLC. So if they want the DLC out before Christmas on all platforms they are going to need it completed by now.
lol they had no choice! The lawsuits forced them to do it.
Looks like i might play 1943 again..I've masted the jets in BF3 now i need to learn to fly thos damn planes in 1943 XD.
Damn, how do you master the jest in BF3? Whenever I get in a jet I can't shoot anything. I'm constantly popping flares so I don't get shot down :3(
