Battlefield 3: Connection / Error problems send EA servers down for you?

By Alan Ng - Oct 26, 2011

It looks like everyone’s Battlefield 3 launch party is continuing to run into problems. After initial problems with the Xbox 360 servers yesterday, it looks like PS3 gamers are also having problems whilst trying to connect to EA’s servers.

We can personally confirm that the PS3 version is also running into teething problems after launch, as we ran into the infamous ‘Failed to connect to EA Servers’ quite a few times during our last session on the game.

It looks like many of you are also having the same problems, which isn’t exactly ideal one day after launching in the US. At the same time, we understand that demand on EA’s servers must be pretty incredible and it has become almost impossible to have a problem-free launch in terms of server connections for such a title as Battlefield 3 – it happened with Black Ops on launch if I remember correctly.

EA has been keeping frustrated gamers up to date on the server outages on their official Twitter account. So far, there’s no info on the PS3 version having problems, but we definitely ran into those errors so it would be handy if any of you can confirm this also.

Hopefully it won’t be too long until EA sort the problems out, as we’re sure everyone is dying to get back into action and rank up those classes as quickly as possible. The connection problems could be seen as further disappointment for PS3 owners after finding out that EA has inexplicably decided to not include the promised Battlefield 1943 game on the disc which is what they first announced at E3 – We’re sure we’ll be finding out more on that soon.

What is your Battlefield 3 status at the moment? Can you connect to EA’s servers on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, or are you still getting connection error messages constantly? On a side note, if you are having any other problems with the game, you can list them below in case other readers can offer a quick fix.
