Server Problems Plague Xbox 360 Version of Battlefield 3

Owners of the Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 3 hoping to frag each other
out over Xbox Live have been severely disappointed as frustrated gamers have
reported on EA’s forums and elsewhere of frequent server crashes. EA has
responded via Twitter that the issues have been resolved, yet ongoing
maintenance is still occurring. Gamers, however, are still reporting issues
with servers and the Battlelog service. A user posted on the rllmuk gaming forum that only 10 servers
were running worldwide. EA has announced that they shipped 10 million Battlefield 3 units worldwide.

Frank Gibeau, EA Games Label President
attributed the instability of the servers to “unprecedented and historic peaks in terms of the activity
that we’re getting from the Battlefield community and players, and it’s caused
parts of our networks to experience some outages.
” In regards to
getting the servers running again, Gibeau said that “We were very rapid in our response
there. We were able to get those back up. We feel like we’ve really gotten a
handle on it now, and the service as it scales to the release in Europe this weekend,
should be solid.
” A patch is in the works that will hopefully
polish out the numerous other gameplay glitches that gamers have encountered
with Battlefield 3, such as the
connectivity issues and glitchy textures.
