View Full Version : burnout 3 online trouble

hey i just got the game and everytime i try to play over live it starts to try to connect, then it brings me back to the main menu, even without the choice to troubleshoot my connection, so i was wondering has this happened to anyone else? and why is it doing this?

Hmmm...a bug ?

its happening to everyone

Strange, as always, I blame EA :p

though I love the game, I don't like

1. Reconnecting to Xbox Live after every race/event
2. Beginning to Reconnect, and get kicked off of Xbox Live
3. Beginning to Reconnect, and not only getting kicked offline, but my game crashing all together

but I can't complain about it, cause this game is so awesome.

Criterion.... great game
EA..... is it that hard to put up good service with good servers?

Lik, everything about this game is absolutely amazing, and it's the best arcade racer I've ever played. Just the online deal with the game is annyoing, and shows MS knew what they were doing, and it should've stayed that way. (like SoundX said)

Yes, the game is amazing, after hearing all the comments made by members here I had a moment of weakness at Wal-Mart and picked it up. So glad I listened. I hate arcade racers, I find them unchallenging, this game is incredible. However, the online troubles are UNBELIEVABLE. Does anyone know anyhting about EA's plans to patch the service so this insanity stops? It's irritating havng to find a new game every time you play a round. Anyhoo, the online component NEEDS to be resolved in the worst way, this game is meant for amazing multiplayer.

I haven't played online yet, maybe I'll try it tonight. Hopefully EA release's a patch. How about everyone e-mail EA so they know how annoying it is and give them some incentive. :)
