Battlefield 1943 Xbox 360 Release Overloads Servers

DICE's downloadable multiplayer-only shooter Battlefield 1943 launched today on Xbox 360, as celebrated by a new launch trailer, though it's been a rough landing.

"Good news, the game is incredibly successful beyond even my expectations," writes producer Gordon Van Dyke in a forum post. "We have reached server capacity, but the bad news about this now [means] some people can't join unless someone leaves."

More servers are currently being added to resolve the issue, and in preparation for the PlayStation 3 launch of the $15 game tomorrow. A PC release is due in September.
