Way back before Battlefield 3's release, someone spoke too soon or wasn't authorized to speak or was just too stupid to keep his mouth shut. That's why we all thought PS3 version of Battlefield 3 would come with Battlefield 1943 on the disc.
Thankfully, the internet never forgets.
With a looming class-action lawsuit, Electronic Arts have decided to make good on their marketing foot-in-mouth and are offering up Battlefield 1943 download codes for those of you who've still got a sore thumb about getting a free game you won't play because you just bought a brand new Battlefield game.
EA's redemption portal will open up on November 26th for Europeans and December 10th for Americans. You'll need to log in with your Origin ID and request a code for your specific region.
