Publisher EA nailed down a release window and pricing for DICE's downloadable shooter Battlefield 1943 this morning. The Battlefield 1942 follow-up will set you back $15 (1200 Microsoft points) when it arrives on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace this June, while the PC version should turn up sometime in September.
For a little perspective, Battlefield 1943 is a 24-player, team-based online shooter complete with land, sea, and air vehicles and three maps -- all available for the same price as the Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? XBLA game. If you're going to spend 15 bucks on a downloadable game this June, you could certainly do much worse.
Theres only going to be 3 maps? (until 4th is unlocked) ... that's why its $15
Damn, there smart .... make it cheap, with only 3/4 maps ... then one u love the game and they release map packs, you have no problem forking out more cash. Smart marketing... before its all said and done ... I bet individually we may end up putting $35 into the game which is HELLA good for them and profits due to no pressing/packaging/retailer costs.
Any word on trophy list yet?
