EA gives PS3 Battlefield 3 owners Battlefield 1943

61 Replies 1,062 Views Created 24-11-2011

This Saturday (26th November), European PS3 owners of Battlefield 3 can finally claim a free full-game voucher for Battlefield 1943.

 

US owners of BF3 on PS3 will be able to do the same on 10th December; and Asian and Japanese owners on 17th December.

 

EA faced a class action lawsuit last week for sneakily breaking its promise of a free Battlefield 1943 game for buyers of Battlefield 3 PS3.

 

The EA website detailing how to claim a BF1943 code said "there have been some misunderstandings" about the deal.

 

To claim your Battlefield 1943 code, do as follows:

  1. Activate your Battlefield 3 Online Pass for the PlayStation 3 using the voucher included in the game (see step #5 for additional instructions).
  2. Visit 1943redemption.battlefield.com on or after the dates outlined above for your region and log in with your Origin ID and password. Click here if you need help with retrieving your account information.
  3. Select your territory. Note vouchers do not work across regions.
  4. You will then receive a PlayStation 3 voucher for Battlefield 1943.
  5. input your voucher into the PlayStation Network store. Instructions below.
  • From the XMB (cross media-bar) of the PlayStation 3 connected to a network, choose [account management] under the [PlayStation Network].
  • From the menu select redeem codes.
  • Enter voucher and select continue.
  • Download Battlefield 1943.

Nice 1 EA Kudos for this! :Thumbs:

Yet the OFFICIAL site says otherwise. I know what I believe.


Fair enough although I'm finding it very hard to believe anything EA has to say recently.

Fair enough, but thanks to solicitors in the US we have the option to get the game for free and I'm quite sure EA won't risk upsetting them anymore.

Remember that you only get the one day to claim the free copy and that the server load will likely be slow as hell when on the site, looks like EA is restricting it as much as possible.

 

No, you can redeem it any day now, just did mine this morning...

can someone please help me! I have visited the 1943 redemption site but when I enter my e-mail address and password it says 'In order to collect a Battlefield 1943 voucher you must first redeem your Battlefield 3 Online Pass for PlayStation®3. Please redeem your Online Pass, and try again.'

I have already redeemed my online pass!

any suggestions?

cheers for the reply mate.

I have followed the bit that says this: "Please make sure you login with the Origin Account that is linked to your PSN ID.
Not sure which account that is? Visit ea.com/profile." and all the information is the same as what I am entering, am I doing something wrong?

when you say 'downloading and reinstalling' what are you referring to?I have the retail copy not a downloaded version

You need to login with your EA account details as opposed to the PSN details.
