EA being sued over Battlefield 3

EA being slapped with class action lawsuit for not including Battlefield 1943 with PS3 version of Battlefield 3.


Back when EA started announcing pre-orders for Battlefield 3, (or even before that) they had publically stated that PS3 owners would receive a free copy of their downloadable only title, Battlefield 1943 absolutely free with Battlefield 3. The day Battlefield 3 got released, PS3 owners were shocked to learn that the promised content was not present on disc.

EA later came out promising free and early DLC to PS3 owners, but they had already sold multiple copies of the game on a false pretext and that hasn’t gone down too well with gamers. According to Kotaku, EA is being taken to court by firm Edelson McGuire who has slapped the publisher with a class action suit on behalf of all PS3 owners. As for compensation, they aren’t asking for millions. They simply want what was promised in the first place, a free copy of battlefield 1943.

EA is yet to respond officially to any of this, but it’s real nice to see customers not taking this kind of crap lying down.
