3 DLC will be available as a timed exclusive to PlayStation 3 players one week
before it arrives on the PC and Xbox 360. The announcement comes from DICE Jr.
Product Manager, Tommy Rydling on Sony’s PlayStation Blog.
timed exclusivity will begin with the first map pack Back to Karkand, a
selection of four maps from Battlefield 2. The pack also contains a handful of
classic weapons and is expected to be
released later this year. It will cost $14.99 for those who wait until after
the Battlefield 3 launch on October 25, but pre-orders get the pack for
no extra charge. Don't worry, the game itself is still being released
simultaneously across all platforms.
the deal is only for one week of exclusivity, it's similar to the pact between
Microsoft and Activision that keeps most Call of Duty DLC exclusive to the Xbox
360 for some time (usually several weeks) before hitting PC and PS3. Whichever
console you prefer to play on, getting access to content days ahead of other
gamers doesn't seem like a big enough incentive to sway people wavering between
CoD: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3, but we suppose every little thing
helps. In the meantime, you can find out more about the Battlefield 3 beta
