DICE has just announced on Battlefield's official Twitter account that PS3, Xbox 360 and PC servers are curretly down and will be restarted soon to improve "Stability and Connectivity".

On Twitter, DICE said, "Our Xbox 360 servers and PS3 servers are coming back up slowly." and, "PC servers are coming back up now and you will be able to connect again shortly"

According to developer, once all servers are restarted, players beta experience will get better. So if you stopped playing BF3 beta yesterday just because of connectivity problems then give it another CHANCE.

Wait till vehicles come out and im a fighter jet, all you camping noobs will Just get owned fron the bombs I'll be dropping. People keep talking about it now being a camp fest, people who choose to camp are just going to get owned by vehicles when EA introduces them. You people need to stop whinging, this beta is currently played on one map with no vehicles in a beta TESTING game. If you think that this is all EA has to offer andactually think the game is going to be "this shit" than you don't even deserve to play a game Like this for being that dumb.

I love the BF3 Beta but its just that I get disconnected so #### often! I have tried EVERYTHING! Disabled all firewalls Disabled UPnP on router, modem and the service for UPnP on my computer. Deleted the host file in system32/drivers/etc I have done all windows7 update, all drivers update including the firmware on my router and on the modem. Made both firefox, origin and BF3 run by the admin account. Tried to update the BF3, but no update either... I just pray now that the final realease will be seamless since I have preordered...

Being 1gb in size, free, awaited and having many people playing it..made the server collapse. Is not the final product, DICE wont dedicate their full capacity for a Beta thats why the game will be available soon! with the FuLl server capacity

I dont understand why you're all bitching about bugs, glitches and anything else. It's a BETA it's supposed to have bugs and glitches, that's why they're letting you play it so you can report them. All they're doing right now is trying to polish the game and you're all crying and being girls. Would the 12 year olds people stop playing BF3 and go back to suckin your COD tit please.

lol the game is already finished you can't have a game in this state with under a month to go to release. The DVDs are already made and ready for ship so anything done now will be compared to what they have already found... to see if they missed anything!

dude...Dice has already stated that the build we are playing right now for the BETA is one from a MONTH ago. They are using these tests for server issues and the like. Do you really think this is the end product? This must be your first BETA test isn't it? And please dont confuse this with a DEMO, which even still is just of a game in development.

actually they can burn hundreds of thousands of discs in a few days, if not more, when using commercial grade production methods. anything they can change quickly, or over a few days will be made and put onto the released games, and if more time is needed it will be released as a patch on release. stfu about shit you have no idea about, dice have made a great game, bad company 2 beta was buggy, look how good that turned out to be!

Ha e turned offsettings in modem ect rebooted everything , googled and still nothing.. I can sit here clicking join game for hours and then when the wind blows just right I get in... They should have looked at how CoD set there servers up

this game sucks, it's slow, glitchy, boring, poor hit detection, and now a camp fest because of prone (yes I know bf 2 had prone too, but tbis game is more like bc2 than bf2)

People are Hilarious. The game is awesome. I can't believe all the great stuff I was able to unlock. Sergeant rank. Love the guns, sounds, radio chatter is awesome. I was expecting bugs when I downloaded the Beta. So I'm buying this game 110%

I don't see how people can come out and say " i dont think I will be getting this because of the connection resetting" ..... It's a beta , a testing ground to get all the bugs and glitches out so the finalized product will be amazing , so stop the b**ching already

That's cool and all.. but i'm still wondering will I ever be connected. Now i'm proceeding further in the menus but STILL not connecting! At this rate BF3 will be off my list of games to buy in October and i'll be getting Forza 4 instead, relegating BF3 to the christmas list.

You have to remember it's a BETA release so WILL have bugs. It's a testing ground so you can't really use it as a bases to decide on if you should buy it or not.
