Coral Sea Battle

As many may have heard, Battlefield: 1943 is now available on the PlayStation Store and XBOX Live and to help promote the game and for the sake of competition, Dice and EA have thrown out a challenge, to get 43,000,000 kills as fast as possible, at which point they will unlock the Coral Sea map. The counter for kills is supposed to go online tonight at 7:43pm. More at: http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming...-battle-615162. Though it also for bragging rights as to which platform contributes more, as of July 11th at 1:21am Eastern Time, the XBOX 360 is leading with 5,405,874 kills while the PlayStation 3 has 2,987,190 kills, not bad for being a day behind and having 10 million less people to play, only 2,418,684 kills to go before we tie the 360.

Well our servers are running fine, and have been. Each game has been pretty full. Xbox live got the game a day early but all ive been hearing about is how its been a lagfest, i think they fixed it, but lets just hope its a close one!

LOL MTV just reported that it would take an extra week or longer for PSN to reach the goal thanks to our community being less active than xbox live. He was complaining about how the server issues probably turned away so many, yet failed to mention the PSN never had any problems from the get go.

I do think the 360 will beat out the PS3 just because of the large gap between the 2 platforms(10 mil+), but I'll be doing my damnedest to help out, hehe.

Never picked it up, haven't even downloaded the demo and won't because of my hate for EA and everything they stand for (I haven't even been in their Home Space), but who doesn't love a good competition between the consoles. Currently though the PlayStation 3 is losing by over 4 million kills and it doesn't look like we will ever catch up, but it still isn't bad considering the odds against us.

Well the past few games ive been in, people have sucked balls. Some people go entire games with absolutely no kills...Other times you see more than half of both teams barely get 2 kills. Good thing people like me are getting 20+ kills lol. Guess it will take us an extra week or two then....

BTW dont hate everything EA does. DICE does some amazing things and battlefield is one of those things that have been amazing from the get go.

I just couldn't do it, no matter how much DICE may be good at making games, I just can't support a publisher that finds Secu-ROM, sneaking in advertising after a game's release and charging for ridiculous amounts of useless DLC completely fine.

I just played the demo and it's pretty fun. Anyone want to trade it for two killzone 2 map packs?

Well we are definitely losing this battle, the combined total of kills is only 4 million away from the goal and we are losing by almost 12 million kills, even if 360 players stopped playing we couldn't catch up, valiant effort by all PS3 owners though and better luck next time.

The longer you play it the more frustrating the game gets...lol

Looking at stats though, our top guys own 360's top guys lol. They should of made deaths subtract from kills, so the only way kills count is if you get more than one kill per death.

The stats are about right, 360 has 2x the kills of the PS3 and also has 2x the install base in NA

More like almost 20.5 million kills away, since at the time of this post we have 22,606,464 kills and since we need 43 million we are exactly 20,393,536 kills away from 43 million. I'm guessing we reach it on a week to a week and a half since the morale to finish is definitely a lot less since we already lost.

PS3 passed it today (yesterday) so PSN was only a few days behind, not weeks like people were saying. So PSN in general cant be too far behind then.

Well that's good to hear, it means despite it all, we still can fight with the 360, I mean 10 million less potential players is quite a difference in the amount of people available to be killing each other online and let's face it, the amount of PS3 owners who still can't buy the game is higher due to PlayStation Network Cards still not being available worldwide (since some people won't use their credit card online or simply don't have one or can't use it since the PlayStation Store seems to have problems with credit cards from certain banks) vs. Microsoft Points cards being available worldwide making our potential crowd even smaller.
