BF3 server status
EA has launched a web page where players can check the server status for Battlefield 3 back-end servers. The new page displays the server status for all 3 platforms — Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and PC — plus a status for Battlelog as well. We don’t know how necessary a service like this is, considering that Battlefield 3 has had very little downtime since launch. It might prove useful in the future though.

You can find the new service here: Battlefield 3 server status.

BF3 xbox 360Recently, EA announced that Battlefield 3 had sold 5 million copies during its first week, an impressive number even for an AAA game. Now additional data from third party sales trackers reveals the breakdown of the sales, i.e. how many units were sold on each platform, in approximate numbers.

It’s clear that the Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 3 has taken a considerable lead, outselling the PlayStation 3 and PC versions by a huge margin. In fact, the Xbox 360 version outsold the PS3 and PC versions combined.

  • Xbox 360: 2.2 million
  • PlayStation 3: 1.5 million
  • PC: 500,000

The numbers aren’t 100% accurate as some digital retailers, including EA’s Origin, haven’t disclosed their sales numbers, so it’s likely that the numbers for the PC version are higher than reported. Just after Battlefield 3 shipped, EA reported that 10 million units were shipped.

Back to Karkand
EA has started its Back to Karkand marketing push over the past week, revealing screenshots and a nice trailer, but they didn’t mention how much gamers will have to fork over for the expansion pack. Now, the Origin store reveals the price tag: $14.99 in the US, €14.99 Euros in Europe, and $23.95 AUD in Australia. But if you pre-ordered Battlefield 3 on Origin, you’ll get the expansion pack for free, naturally.

Battlefield 3 Back To Karkand includes 4 maps, 3 new vehicles, 10 new weapons and some new ribbons/medals for players as well. I’ll be released in December on all three platforms. See here for a full list of Back to Karkand weapons.
