Apparently there have been "some misunderstandings" about EA's promise to provide PS3 Battlefield 3 customers with a free copy of Battlefield 1943. And by misunderstandings, we mean downright lies followed by a class action lawsuit.
However, EA is planning to make good and grant PS3 players their free game after all. To do so, you'll need to head over to a voucher redemption portal after activating a valid online pass. The promotion will begin on the 26th - and EA has helpfully provided some step by step instructions. All's well that ends well, I suppose.
