Consumers take EA to court over missing BF1943

Not including Battlefield 1943 as a bonus with the PlayStation 3 version of Battlefield 3 has earned EA a class action lawsuit.

The suit, filed by firm Edelson McGuire, alleges that the publisher “misled and profited from thousands of their customers by making a promise that they could not, and never intended, to keep”.

The attempt to make up for the oopsie by saying that the week-early BF3 DLC — which at that point had been announced for over a month — will act as compensation is called out also, along with how the game’s AWOL status was announced in the first place (via Twitter); most consumers never even knew why their bonus game was missing.

Bottom line, the firm’s lawyers tell Kotaku: those participating on the suit just want the game they were promised.
