EA and DICE unleashed Battlefield 1943 on Xbox Live Arcade and PSN this week, and what a great game this is! Included is three maps from Battlefield 1942, with a fourth released probably next week. The last couple of days have mostly been about errors and problems for many of the players, with freezing, lag and server downtime. It has gotten better and better for each day though, with EA both doubling and now probably triple the amount of servers. I've had problem free sessions all day long so it seems like it works well now, at least in Europe. In short, to me Battlefield is still the game that produces the most fun shooting gameplay and 1943 continues with insanely fun hours to be had.
Distribution is definitely a problem. I've heard Switch is pretty easy to find in certain parts of Europe. Not so easy in the USA. (43 minutes ago)

I stopped trying to make sense of Ninty's decisions a long time ago lol. "This cheap machine prints money? naaaah" (3 Hours ago)
I guess it was supposed to be a limited run in the first place.. but you'd think it'd be a pretty easy way to make money too. (3 Hours ago)
yeah they certainly decided against trying to meet demand. They probably wanted to focus on Switch demand above all (3 Hours ago)
