EA gives PS3 Battlefield 3 owners Battlefield 1943

61 Replies 1,014 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.

Not when it was promised to us at E3 then for some reason they backed out of it and told us we had a weeks exclusivity on the BTK DLC :|

 

I thought EA was on the straight and narrow with their fellow gamers but I guess not then.

 

Still, I bet 80% of BF3 players already own the game anyway, so it was a silly plan to start with.

 

Unless its to do more with Sony then EA because didn't a similar thing just happen with Saints Row 3?

 

 

Well that's another game for my boys PS3 at Xmas then ;D

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.

What are you talking about?

 

The codes to redeem BF1943 are not available yet. If you've bought it from the PSN store, you have it already so what's the problem?

Late to the party as usual....

 

But, if there are still any codes out there that aren't wanted by their owners and want them to find a good home, please consider me.  Just finished the trial time and it's awesome.....
