No more free 1943

Following previous successes like Medal of Honor & Dead Space 2, EA took to the stage at E3 to announce Battlefield 1943 would be included free with PS3 copies of Battlefield 3.

Then, we learned Battlefield would be getting timed-exclusivity (of a whole 7 days!) for DLC on the PS3. We presume this is just another part of the new partnership and that of course, the game would still be free. It seems not.

Thousands of angry customers took to twitter, after they’d stuck their new game in and no 1943 was on there. EA then responded by tweeting:

“In lieu of 1943 being available on disk for PS3 customers, EA has made all BF3 expansions available early to PS3 customers.”

If I’m weighing up my options on which platform to buy for, a free game (and a good one at that) would be much more enticing than getting paid-for DLC a week early. Have any thoughts on this? Leave a comment below.
