Ubisoft apologises for Rainbow Six pricing cock-up

I assume what really happened was they re-thought the pricing after people made a massive deal about the content shipping on the PS3 disk at no extra charge.
Looks like all this moaning we do sometimes pays off :lol:

It's about time we saw multiplayer add-ons like this for free. I wouldn't mind paying a few quid, but 800 MS points is a rip off

So if Red Edition is going to be free as of this Friday; do we get a refund on that one as well? :wink: Or is it just Black Edition where they are feeling generous?
NOW WOULD YOU KINDLY... Stop posting your inane comment on the forum?
