with over an hour of bonus videos and more. The game marks the first time the franchise is appearing on the Sony console and EA's taking advantage of the extra space with Blu-ray discs to add more content to the game. You'll get things like five new multiplauer maps, behind the scenes videos, Command & Conquer TV programming, and more.
