Battlefield 3 PS3 ships sans Battlefield 1943 bonus, EA counters with early DLC

EA and Sony have made a pair of announcements regarding exclusive goodies linked to the PlayStation 3 version of Battlefield 3 — and we failed to realize that one invalidated the other. The free copy of Battlefield 1943, DICE’s de facto console-exclusive shooter, didn’t make it into PS3 copies of Battlefield 3 as originally intended.

Responding to questions on Twitter, the official Battlefield account offered the following: “In lieu of 1943 being available on disk for PS3 customers, EA has made all BF3 expansions available early to PS3 customers.”

This refers to Sony and EA’s ongoing exclusivity deal, which sees Battlefield 3 add-ons become available (for purchase) one week early on PS3. EA’s switcheroo lets you buy new maps for Battlefield 3, then, at the expense of the game for which you never could. Thanks?
