It seems like every time a popular game with a multiplayer component comes onto the scene, it quickly buckles under the pressure of its community. Battlefield 3 has joined the ranks of online games that have stumbled out of the gate. The official Battlefield 3 Twitter account has informed its adoring public the Battlefield 3 servers for Xbox 360 are down.
Lots of BF3 owners are asking about the problem on Twitter, but variants of the same statement keeps getting made.
“We’re aware of the server issues on the Xbox 360 and are working to correct them as soon as possible,” reads one of the tweets.
Only the Xbox 360 servers are down, so most PC and PS3 owners are still crashing jets into the ground and wondering where that last headshot came from.
From what I can tell, BF3′s multiplayer is really fun when it’s working properly. You have to take a gamble in hoping your EA Origin account doesn’t cause any errors, but other than that, there doesn’t seem to be any other massive widespread problems.
Update: The servers are back up and have been for a while.
