EA has released a special Medal of Honor: Warfighter announcement that is very special. If 3 million gamers download their Warfighter beta, Linkin Park will premiere their new music video for “Castle of Glass”.
So, I watch the announcement trailer and I’m like, yeah let’s try le MoH beta, it might be awesome and I follow the link provided and then behold! It’s only available on Xbox 360… why… isn’t that awesome, since I don’t actually own one. So here’s what I think EA thinks, and I’m just spit balling here.
Xbox looks to be a more noob friendly platform to lure new gamers to, in specific, Linkin Park fans and so let’s make this exclusive to Xbox because maybe we have some kind of deal with Microsoft and well, PC and PS3 can just wait, because we don’t actually care about those gamers who’ve been die hard MoH supporters right now, at this moment.
This is really unfortunate. Logically, would it not be easier to get 3 million gamers to download the beta across all platforms? Probably, so while the rest of us are being given the finger, here are the beta details and the announcement trailer.
