Microsoft offers PS3 manual to download by mistake

1 min read


One of the newest additions to Xbox Live is the ability to download full retail versions of slightly older titles like Battlefield Bad Company. Unfortunately this is only available to the players over in America but we can always hope it gets to our shores one day.

Anyway it’s day one of the new update and already Microsoft has egg on it’s face. If you go and download Battlefield Bad Company you get the option to download the manual as well, for those slower members of society who haven’t got the hang of point and click yet.

The thing is that this manual is actually for the PS3 version with X, Square, Triangle and Round buttons in the manual. Seriously how did Microsoft slip on that?

    After playing xbox for almost 3 years now… I still sometimes call the green “a” button X…. very old habit 🙂


  • I doubt it was a MS stuff up, I’m sure there are facilities available to allow publishers to provide certain content ease of use if you will, and then Microsoft will probably have a backend that monitors content and charges teh publisher accordingly… just my thought

    Download is available for uk players as well ^^

    But 20 pound a game is a little bit high. As I am sure some of those games can be bought cheaper at some on-line shops.

    Like mass effect = 18 pounds new at shop_to etc..
