Battlefield 3: “Xbox 360 servers are at 95 percent and climbing”- EA
During its launch on 25th, Battlefield 3 suffered from several problems, like lag and glitches and such, in its online interface, but an EA spokesperson told Kotaku that the worst is now past, and that the servers are now almost at their full strength.
“We’ve turned a corner,” they said. “We are happy to report that PS3 and PC players experienced server stability all weekend, and Xbox 360 servers are at 95 percent and climbing.
“Regardless of the cause or platform, our online teams are standing by to identify the issues and addressed them as they arise. We will not rest until we’re at 100 percent… At a high level, the tech process has been: identify, hypothesize, reproduce, fix, test, publish, verify and communicate.”
About the Xbox 360 connectivity problems, they said: “There are a number of different factors impacting server connectivity on Xbox 360. It is a particularly complex server architecture and we continue to work with Microsoft to improve connectivity.
“We are gamers, too, and understand how frustrating it is not to be able to play the game without interruption. We appreciate their patience and promise, it will be worth the wait.”
