Since releasing on Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network, EA and DICE's Battlefield 1943 has been one of the most popular online games among registered users. And not one to forget where the support lies, DICE have officially thanked
the Xbox Live user who made the game's 43,000,000th kill, which subsequently unlocked the Coral Sea map and Air Superiority Mode.
While un-locking the Coral Sea map was definitely a communal effort, we here at EA DICE would like to give a shout out to Xbox live user James (jkasapi) from Peterborough, England.
It was James' virtual bullet that registered the 43,000,000th kill, un-locking the Coral Sea map and Air Superiority mode for all Xbox users. For his trouble, James wins a pair of official 1943 sunglasses, a 1943 t-shirt, and custom Battlefield sneakers! Congrats James!
PlayStation fans, keep playing! We'll have a similar give-away when the PS3 community hits 43,000,000 kills.
It's really awesome to see developers supporting communities in this way. Interesting Xbox Live's version of the game reached the milestone before the PlayStation Network.
