Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

EA has changed its tune and pledged to give all PlayStation 3 Battlefield 3 customers a free copy of Battlefield 1943, all to avoid embarrassing legal entanglements.

The company issued a statement to say: "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."

Earlier this week, a US law firm threatened to take EA to court on behalf of disgruntled gamers who accused the publisher of bait and switch tactics.

The initial promise of a free game was made at E3 earlier in the year.

In order to claim their free copy of Battlefield 1943, customers should visit EA's website from 26 November. ®
