Call of Duty DLC always arrives earlier for Xbox 360 fans, but PlayStation 3 owners have something to crow about, too.
DICE Jr. Product Manager Tommy Rydling gave us some great Battlefield 3 information over at the PlayStation Blog .
First, he reminded us of the open beta dates for the PlayStation Netweork: the test starts on September 29 and runs through October 10. You can join just by going to the PlayStation Store and downloading the BF3 demo (that's the beta). We'll be running around the "bombed-out metro tunnels on the outskirts of Paris;" sounds like fun! You're also in the beta if you redeemed a Medal of Honor: Limited Edition or Tier 1 Edition Online Pass; this actually lets you participate a few days early on September 27.
In addition, PS3 fans get a bonus: starting with the first expansion pack – Back to Karkand, set to be released later this year – all new packs for BF3 "will appear one week early exclusively on PS3." So yeah, Modern Warfare 3 DLC will come to Microsoft's console first but if you're more of a Battlefield 3 fan, you might want the PS3 version, so you can grab those packs a week early.
