Battlefield 3 patch addresses input lag and audio stability on PS3

DICE will this week release a patch for Battlefield 3 that should please PlayStation 3 owners.

The update, out on 27th November on consoles and no later than 4th December on PC, addresses input lag on PS3. “We now believe we have significantly improved this situation for all players,” DICE said. (Battlefield 3, Dice, PS3)

I have the audio problem 80% of the time, glad to have a fix

I hate/love this game, it is stopping me from playing other stuff.

Why everyone has to be so pessimist/negative?

for the love of gaming, please try to be a bit more positive and less of a douchebag, that would be nice. If these are the only comments you can make and you got one bubble, how about not commenting negative things like this anymore, huh?

If PC gaming was the only option, the gaming community would be much smaller than what it is now. price is a big factor and not everyone buy 10 games a year (unlike myself).

and if the 360 is so good, why the RROD?
I bought a 360, it fried 3 times, sent it to microsoft 2 times. Third time I did it myself with some help of a friend and I`ve been playing it since that time without fail. did it made me deny the effort microsoft made for the console? nope, I still enjoyed many games on it(Halo 3 anyone?), as with my PS3, wii and PC.

I tend to look at games this way. Most games/hardware are made for a targeted market. The PS3 is not oriented to be the most powerful hardware ever, but they got great exclusives, just like the Xbox 360 does and so is the wii.

BF3 is not easy on hardware and I think that my PS3/360 handle the job pretty well for 400$/5 years of gaming (6 years for 360).

Yeah, I'm afraid to buy a new game untill their price drops because I just know that I wont play it untill the time when the game has dropped in price already.. BF3 is just awesome, best multiplayer FPS in my opinion

Haven't some of these issues been present since launch? (October 2011) Its about time they fixed them

The input lag made me trade my game in. It was unplayable.

"Unplayable" are you crazy? I play it most days with no problems

The "input lag" is coming from YOU
Holeran  +   791d ago
Don't listen to Hellsvacancy he has no idea what he is talking about. Anyone that played the beta then the retail version knows how much the retail version suffers from input lag.

That's the first thing that I thought too.

I think the Gunship is going to have a pretty big impact on gameplay

One year after the game released.
EXCELLENT JOB DICE, IT's A SHAME I DON'T PLAY THIS TRIPE ANYMORE, OTHERWISE I'D CARE ABOUT THE AUDIO-CUT FIX.

Still, it's light years ahead of COD.

I just find it slightly amazing its just now getting fixed. People were complaining about this literally a year ago and its just NOW getting fixed (supposedly, who knows if the patch works)

On my TV the lag wasn't there, but the sound thing was annoying as hell! Then I took the game to a friends house and you can notice the lag for sure. He had an LED TV, I have LCD, both Samsung. Was really hard to play it like that.

they wanted to have something to keep people playing instead of going for BO2
Detoxx  +   791d ago
Awesome, now we can Enjoy Aftermath and End Game with sound
Holeran  +   791d ago
Wow a year after and we might have a input lag fix?
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   791d ago
Now they just need to make RPG's/SMAW's useful outside of Operation Metro.

I didn't really notice any input lag and I play it on an LCD and LED.
Holeran  +   791d ago
If you didn't play the beta then you may not notice it but trust me it's there. There has been tons of videos on it, look it up on youtube. After playing the beta I stood in line at midnight launch only to play it and say I wonder when they are going to patch this because it killed the game. After the first patch didn't work I sold the game, then they came out with the second patch that for sure was going to fix it and I bought the game again, but it didn't fix it. Now supposedly they have another patch that is going to fix it this time for sure.....maybe...
