The first DLC pack for the amazingly popular shooter Battlefield 3 drops today, but only on the PS3. Read on to see what is included and why you should drop your hard earned cash the moment it hits the PSN Store. 

EA entered an exclusive 7 day deal to have the highly anticipated Back to Karkand DLC map pack available to the PS3 community before any other. This seems to fly in the face of the support and focus given to the PC players, not to mention the free Karkand DLC with every PC game sold. Although it does make since to boost the sales of what seems to be the second most popular version of the game. If you pre-ordered the game, you should have received a code in the box to get the DLC free on release day, if not it will hit you up $15, but is it worth it?
