EA announced at E3 that the Playstation 3 version of Battlefield 3 would be bundled with a free, platform exclusive copy of Battlefield 1943. This reportedly didn’t happen and so Kotaku are reporting on EA being sued over the exclusion of Battlefield 1943.
The exclusion of the the popular Battlefield 1943 has reportedly got gamers in the US up in arms. EA in turn said Battlefield 3 PS3 owners would be get timed-exclusive DLC for the game instead.
Law firm Edelson McGuire is now taking EA to court on behalf of disappointed gamers, arguing that EA’s late and poor communication of the change of plan, and the attempt at a ‘make up’ proposal with early DLC that had already been announced.
The suit ultimately alleges that EA “misled and profited from thousands of their customers by making a promise that they could not, and never intended, to keep”.
