It looks like Microsoft and Call of Duty aren’t the only ones who can play the “timed exclusive expansion” game. Tommy Rydling, Jr. Product Manager at DICE, has announced that PlayStation 3 owners have the pleasure of playing any “flull-blown” Battlefield 3 expansion pack before anyone else. The exclusivity deal will begin with the Back to Karkand pack, and will follow with all “full-blown” expansion packs on the system. Below is a little of what Rydling had to say on blog.us.playstation.

“But that’s not all for our PlayStation fans! You’ll be happy to know that beginning with our first expansion pack Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand (to be released later this year), all full-blown upcoming expansion packs for the game will appear one week early exclusively on PS3, brought to you by Sony!

As you may or may not have heard, Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand is a themed expansion pack containing four of the most loved maps from Battlefield 2, boldly reimagined in the Frostbite 2 engine. It also features new weapons and vehicles, unique in-game dog tags, new persistence, as well as new Trophies.”
