EA BattleField 2 Servers Flooded last Night!

EA BattleField 2 Servers Flooded last Night!

Electronic Arts is releasing BattleField 2 for the Xbox 360 on April 12th. To give everyone a teaser they’ve made a useable demo available for download on Xbox Live. It’s not too bad, but it’s just one small map.

In any case, there is so much hype over this game (not by EA by the way, but by the gaming community in General) that their servers are completely flooded. You can’t even get in to play the demo! “Servers FULL” messages are all too common.

Now, I was able to get into a game eventually. The surprising thing is that the talk on the headsets (Voice Over Internet Protocols) is gamers talking about how much this game rocks. There was a constant stream of

“This is way better than Halo”

“I’m gonna get this as soon as it comes out”

“I wish this was out already”

EA has a big hit on their hands here. Rumors have it that they’ve bought DICE studios who are the brains behind this one.

Once great thing that Microsoft did for the Xbox 360 was make it very easy to gamming companies to port their PC versions over to the Xbox 360. This could be the nail in the coffin for PlayStation. But we’ll have to wait and see.

This is just another reason why EA’s about to have a great quarter. Get in on their stock while it’s still cheap.
