    I’ll certainly redeem my code, but I don’t know if I’ll ever actually download it.

    I’ll be grabbing a copy but don’t know if I’ll actually play it to death like I do with BF3.

    Don’t know why people made a hoo haa out of this freebie – which they may just not get time to play.

    @Pedro: Why wouldn’t you? It’s a free game!

    I think its great that gamers actually stood up to big cooperate typhoon like EA and demanded whats rightfully ours. Going back to the actual game, I am not sure people who purchased BF3 will be interested in BF 1943, but again like EdEN said, its a free game!

    I just don’t know when I’ll have the time to play another game, one that I’m not even that much interested in ;p

    I’ll redeem the code, since it’s free, but playing the game will depend on weather or not i have the time and will to do it.

    free second game is almost enough to get me to buy Battlefield.. almost but not quite.

    What will be interesting is to see for how long they’ll honor this deal. What if I buy Battlefield next year for $20 when they release a GOTY or what not. MY guess is that it’s tied to the online pass and its expiration date.

    Awesome that EA decided to give everyone 1943, but doesn’t almost everyone have it already? If i remember correctly it’s not the first time it was given away as a bonus

    MY guess is that it’s tied to the online pass and its expiration date.

    And that’s why Free Stuff via Vouchers isn’t free stuff. Especially when there’s no reason not to just put it on the disc. Like triple copy movies. I bought Scott Pilgrim and i expected BR, DVD, and Digital copy.. why not put the digital copy on the BR disc or the DVD or something. Nope I gotta voucher it. There’s a time and a place for vouchers.. “free with purchase” stuff ain’t it.

    @Wolfkin: Yeah, my digital copy of Matrix had already expired…

    some digital copies do come on a seperate disk but you are right all of them should and there no reason for expiration dates. otherwise glad to see EA honouring the deal they made with bg1943

    I’ve been meaning to due a Gamestop pre-order card run lately. I got a bunch on the list to look for :D Saints Row 3, Halo Anneversary, UMVC3, Dead Island (ps3 version) AND Battlefield 3 now :P I love it when people leave there unused order cards! If only I could get better by Wednesday so I’d be tip top shape
