EA and DICE keep the extras coming to PS3 players of Battlefield 3, not only will the PS3 version include a free copy of Battlefield 1943 - all DLC will launch exclusively on Playstation Network one week before Xbox 360 owners can get their hands on it. An exclusivity deal designed to counter Microsoft's Call of Duty deal? Perhaps, and it remains to be seen if this has any effect on the Xbox 360 consumers.
Junior product manager Tommy Rydling (hey, I know that guy!) wrote the following on the Playstation Blog:
"But that's not all for our PlayStation fans! You'll be happy to know that beginning with our first expansion pack Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand (to be released later this year), all full-blown upcoming expansion packs for the game will appear one week early exclusively on PS3, brought to you by Sony!
As you may or may not have heard, Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand is a themed expansion pack containing four of the most loved maps from Battlefield 2, boldly reimagined in the Frostbite 2 engine. It also features new weapons and vehicles, unique in-game dog tags, new persistence, as well as new Trophies."
