EA Patching PS3 Version of Bad Company 2 First

Only days ago, EA’s latest installment of the Battlefield series, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, was released on the PlayStation 3. While the game has been met with great praise, the multi-player component has faced some issues including server disconnects and EA Store issues. Thankfully, EA have since stated that they are looking at resolving the issues and should have a fix out soon.

On the official Battlefield: Bad Company 2 blog, EA have posted a status update for the issues many Bad Company 2 consumers are experiencing. The blog post states the following:

An update to Battlefield Bad Company 2 on PlayStation 3 is currently with Sony America and will, hopefully go live later today after we get Sony approval. When this happens PlayStation 3 owners will get access to the BFBC2 in game store and have access to their VIP content. Sony Europe will follow shortly after and will, all being well with Sony, allow European players to access the store and their VIP content early this week.

The access to the in game store will start things off by giving VIP members access to the Rush map, Nelson Bay and the Conquest map, Laguna Alta.

Hopefully these issues will be corrected before tomorrow so players can play Bad Company 2 without conflict. The most interesting thing about the post is that apparently the PlayStation 3 issues will be addressed prior to the PC version. The blog states the following:

While the Xbox 360 and PC aren’t getting a client update today we will of course be watching them at DICE and EA, making sure the servers keep running and let you game as much Battlefield time as possible.

EA and DICE are taking the problem reports very seriously and this should be a good sign for things to come. If you already have Battlefield: Bad Company 2, feel free to check out the PlayStation LifeStyle Bad Company 2 Trophy Guide.
