Remember few weeks ago we reported that one disgruntled PS3 owner filed a lawsuit on behalf of all Battlefield 3 PS3 owners who were misled by EA. It looks like EA has finally succembed to their demands. Earlier EA had said that they would give PS3 Battleifled 3 owners a free copy of BF 1943 but backed off from that promise but now they realise their mistake.
Ea released a statement saying that:
There have been some misunderstandings around Battlefield 1943 and Battlefield 3. To address this we are making Battlefield 1943 available free of charge to owners of Battlefield 3 on the PS3 beginning this month.
Sometimes lawsuits work!
