Battlefield 1943 launched on XBLIVE today but all is not sunny in Europe where server packet issues are causing lag for many gamers.
Everything goes smoothly for the Ps3 launch tomorrow.
Don't hold your breath. As this is an EA game, and you have to play on their servers. There is not one EA game that has run smoothly online day one!
Yeah we have online systems (XBL and PSN) but you have to make an EA account for no reason, and they completely underestimated the demand.. of a Battlefield game..
You have to use EAs useless account system? :(
if its because Live has been having problems lately. I dnt know I wonder if the ps3 version will have the same problems. We'll see tommorrow I guess.
@ Creeping judas. Burnout paradise did. Oh but I'm sure you didn't mean "Any" game. Probably shooters because... I think fight night 4 works pretty well too... I do agree though. I bet EA, MS and Sony are all in for a lot of people DLing this game. much more then anticipated...
They are EA's servers you ignoramus.. lol
How nostalgic. Takes me back to the bf2 days...
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! EA's servers are horrendous. Who knows when this will get fixed. You cant even log on to a game. There's a ticker scrolling that says that the servers are at full capacity and you cant play. If that's the case GIVE ME MY PHUCKIN MONEY BACK! It's an online only game for christs sake and I cant even play it online? I am sure PS3 will have the same message tomorrow. Good Luck. If you want this D/L wait a week, it's not going anywhere
I downloaded it for the PC. I personally think it sucks. It takes forever to kill somebody. I mean, you can seriously take three nades to the face and live. But die in one tank explosion??? They need to make it feel like BF2. The character animations are just horrible. They should have made it feel like Warhawk. I mean, they all ready copied the idea of a flak gun why screw up the gameplay. Too cartoony in my opinion.
"I downloaded it for the PC. I personally think it sucks" Wow that's not a blatant lie... the pc version isn't even gonna be out for awhile. Hell there's not even alpha versions of it available for torrent...
You're right! Nvm, what i downloaded was Battlefield Heroes. http://www.battlefieldheroe... But anyway, i hope it doesnt play like Battlefield Heroes then.
I apologize for comin off as a jacka$$ I kinda had the feeling you were mistaking it for heroes. If this wasn't n4g I would have known for sure it was a simple mistake.
You mean a EA game (and a Battlefield title at that!) isn't running smoothly on launch day!??!?! No wai! Battlefield: Bad Company was practically unplayable for almost a month after launch. Wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if 1943 has the same issues.
this game had dedicated servers? correct me if im wrong
Online games on the PS3 have dedicated servers.
When you play an EA game on your xbox, you are actually playing on EA servers and not peer to peer.
I guess no one ever notices the big "Connecting to EA Servers" before the start of every EA game they start playing?
It's not peer to peer it's still client server but the server is a user connection. Most PS3 games are also like this.
The first couple of rounds had lag that made it unplayable, but I just had like 10 rounds of lagless awesomness. However the last half hour i havent been able to play at all, it says it cant find a game.
Here's a link to the official update thread on the EA forum with some info. http://forums.electronicart...
day 1 multiplayer game has lag when tons of people try to play at the same time especially a $15.00 game during this crap recession things will clear up go read a book about actual WW II heroes if your bored, or call a relative or friend and make plans.
Everything is going according to plan. Lag for XBL. Psn FTW.
Psn will prob lag first day too, but at least we're not getting ripped off 60$!
Retard this game uses dedicated EA servers.
360 has one massive issue when comes to online. peer 2 peer connections people use there own bandwidth with no proper sever backup running so every game you host others leeching on your connection .im soo glad i moved over to ps3 were they do have deadicated servers sure you get some lag but nothin like 360
And those same issues effect PSN. This is using dedicated servers genius but they are EA servers. Both services use a mix of dedicated and P2P connections but Sony does have more for their first party. This is an annoying myth that XBL is all P2P and PSN is all dedicated.
That still does not change the fact that he made a valid point. I'll take free dedicated servers over paying for peer to peer.
Not ALL games on ps3 has dedicated servers right? I'm asking because I have no idea, not flaming. I play SF4 on my ps3 regularly and I'm pretty sure that game uses a peer to peer system, right? Or am I not getting this at all?
Thanks hiredhelp, you broke the case. This is totally new information to all of us. idiot
I laugh to all the idiots who claims Live is lag free.
Thats because Live is lag free, EA uses it's own servers for online gaming :) Dumbass
that's cause live doesn't have servers and can't have lag. Its just a service that makes u pay for demos and party chat every year.
I love it when a 360 follower tries to brag and justify paying for a service that Ps3 owners get free. Even the idiot Jason up there acknowledges that EA runs their own servers. What is the point of paying for live then?
EA doesnt have enough servers for the army of gamers who bought BF1943, EA has a hard time thinking ahead.
please it is an EA game, it will be unplayable for about 2 months, every battlefield game has been that way. you think this is bad you should have bought BF 1942 when it came out.
uhhhh DICE was still its own company when 1942 came out. EA only published their game (Similar to how EA publishes Valve's games). EA didn't acquire DICE till much later. Me and my friends never had a problem with 1942 we bought that day 1 and played the demo before it launched.
do you recon ea will release bocarge,and market garden as new maps?
Then what game does Live run? First party titles?
Man, I'm anticipating this game but I hope it isn't really laggy and buggy.
This is a crap story, They even say all over the game that they are adding servers... Tell you the truth I've played in 5 game never finished one because they have to keep disconnecting the servers to add more...
lol a new advert appeared today in europ on the TV LAG "only on the xbox 360" lol joking, joking.
and see if ps3 has the same problems
I just hope the PS3 version runs better. NBA2k9 was running like crap on live last nite..
This is EA. If they screw the 360 version, do you really think the ps3 will be any different?
Not just lag anymore. Entire game is basically unplayable for most in North America. http://www.collegenews.com/...
I'm playing Warhawk on PS3 which has no lag.
it will be worth the wait. bit of patience.
Droids are so dumb they don't even know EA holds their own servers...There is no limit to how ignorant a droid can be.
And there is no end to the doucheness in all of ur posts
I played the beta and when more than two people fired in the same area, the screen would lock and we would be blind until someone died.
