Thats right PS3 Users should have patch by this week!!! you can follow up on thew full post over at fourzerotwo's blog.
im looking forward to the patch..althou time to play gonna be a problem
whats in the patch? or how will it affect the game?
basically, why are people excited over the patch?
until we see if this sorts out the many problems the PS3 version of this game has. At level 41 at the moment and still I cannot unlock create a class.
I left a number of posts on IW's site and stated my displeasure at the lack of information posted regarding the COD4 rank problems. No reply from any moderators but I have had a number of other players Private Message me saying they have the exact same problems.
Lets hope that the patch will sort and improve this game.
tired of hearing people sing and play music and not having the ability to mute them.
the things I remember that it will have are;
*Quick Mute in-game THANK YOU SO MUCH :)
*Kill Cams for Air-strikes, Grenades, RPG's, and Claymores
*Sniper accuracy increased - :(
*Host migration - it still bumps you out of the game and out into a lobby but it quickly starts the next map
*Proly lotsa other things I can't recall at the moment as well.
BUT UNFORTUNATELY (if it's like the 360 patch) it will add about .5-2sec of LAG. Which despite all the good things the patch brings, this one aspect BREAKS a truely awesome game. When you encounter the LAG you'll notice it when you empty a clip into someone you obviously got the drop on and none of the hits register. You also notice a different story being shown in the killcams than what you saw just before you died.
I really hope IW fixes this soon because LAG in this game is really really deadly and it's very frustrating going from 17 and 5 to, 5 and 17.
maybe full divx compatibility.
ignore my previous comment.
the site has posted the source theres nothing wrong with it
whoever disagreed with me tell me whats wrong? lol wow are you cereal?
I can play cod4 again! Hope that those map packs come too this weeks. lol
402's post on the Infinity ward forums:
Hey Everyone --
Big day today with all the DLC info hitting on IGN and Gamespy but there's even bigger immediate news for the PS3 users as I got word today that Sony is in the final stages of certification for the Feature Patch and we could expect to see it very soon this week. I may even have an update today of the exact time we can expect it. I assume this will be within the next day or so which is awesome news!
Its about time. Thank you.
i thought it was coming 2 days after the 360 patch? Anyhow grats, this patch is great the gren and airstrike kill cams never get old!
it was rumored to...but then when it basically broke the 360 version for a little while, the PS3 version fell off the radar for no apparent reason...
the forums originally had it as "SCE's certification for the patch was about 2 days behind MS"...but all that changed when the 360 patch went live...
I really hope that Infinity Ward includes rumble support in this update. The DualShock 3 controllers will be out in the US in a month, so it would be good timing to do it now. CoD4 is the only recent PS3 game I have that does not support rumble.
IW have stated that they will NOT support rumble for the PS3. Guess they don't have enough time releasing features that should have come with the retail game months later and charging you for maps that should be free to give a sh!t.
They said they're never releasing the patch for rumble which is stupid, they're lazy but, we didn't know they're THAT lazy to implement a 20 second patch for there game, lulz.
IW's fourzerotwo has come out and said it on the IW forums.
Resistance, Motorstorm, and Heavenly Sword have all received rumble patches. And pretty much every game released after Ratchet & Clank (other than CoD4) has supported rumble right out of the box. Even third party cross-platform games... That just SUX...
wnyone got a link where it states that IW is not making a rumble patch ?
Did I miss something here? Wasn't the patch making things WORSE for 360 gamers? I could have swore that there were more complaints than compliments about the patch. Not to mention that the link says nothing about the issues surrounding the patch. I seriously hope they fixed the bugs with the patch. As I said last time: "Be careful what you wish for"
They are pretty much similar feature patches, so who knows. It may make things worse and we'll have to wait for another 5 months before it gets fixed. IW have sh!tted on console owners with their negligent patches, seriously, in-game muting should have been included in the retail and taking four freaking months to do it is unacceptable, and their lack of free maps. PC owners got a free map with one of their patches and will continue to get free maps with mod support.
Your avatar makes me want to leave work right now, rush home, and suprise my wife. 8D
It better not be one of those trick pictures. :(
Oh and yes the COD4 patch better be awesome. IW should visit Australia and make sure the damn thing works well!
If it does gay up anything, who knows, they could give something away to free for inconvenience.
What, another patch?
*cough* map packs *cough*
...still won't improve the lobby system. How many times have you joined a lobby or game and only get 1 red bar. Most nights I spend 60 mins finding a suitable game for ever 20 mins of actual playing. I should send the bill for wear and tear on my PS3 to IW for all the reloading I have to do!
In short, COD4 best on-line game wrapped in a dogs turd of a lobby system.
"In short, COD4 best on-line game wrapped in a dogs turd of a lobby system. "
I'm sorry you had to deal with that. I've yet to experience anything relating to that, and I play a HELL of a lot of COD4. Where are you playing from, if you don't mind my asking?
I'm playing in Australia, and when I get to play against Australians it's a pretty good experience, especially if I end up hosting a game.
Most of the time though I end up playing against Americans or Europeans, then it's bad.
A lot of Australians put AUS in their clan tag, so you know there are lots of people looking for a game in Aus but it's then frustrating to be in a lobby that's 10000km's away with lag when so many ozzies looking for a game would be better of just playing each other.
I guess I am pretty lucky...I have a fairly average (decent for DSL, but average for broadband in general) DSL connection...that is only 3 megs up and 1.5 down...yet I get into a game into a lobby in less than 5 seconds, or it sets me up to host a few seconds later...no matter what...
about 1 in 30 games I end up with just 2 bars...have yet to be in a game with 1 bar (unless it is one where the host takes a dump and everyone but him has 1 bar)...and everything else is at least 3, but usually 4 full bars for me...and again, that is with a very average connection...
and that brings something up...i have some friends with faster cable connections than my own, but their routers are set up differently...I bridged my DSL modem, and set the router as the PPPoE client (my PPPoE password and username is stored within the router now, the DSL modem is only a bridge to change a standard phone cable into an ethernet cable)...and I end up almost always getting a better connection than them...I know that the NAT type is an easy way to tell if you are going to have abnormal problems, but even with a NAT type 2, I hear about a lot of guys having really bad performance with CoD 4...
pm me or check the forums for some help on that if you want...I play guys in Europe all the time, even when they are hosting...and still more often than not have a perfectly acceptable connection...
I had maybe 5 days of shoddy online service dealing w IW's p2p servers, but usually I log on and i'm playing in my designated room seconds later!
awesome, im gonna have to dust off my COD4 game and actually play it (i haven't played COD4 in like a month lol)
Good, I hope it fixes things and not break them like the 360's patch. If this patch fixes online, then I will dust off CoD4 and play :)
About damn time. I've had loads of problems with COD4 online. I just wish they'd fix the damn red dot snipage with an M60 or SAW. EVERY weapon is almost dead on accurate when using sights, really takes away the point of a sniper rifle.
kind of agree...the light machine guns have always been one of my biggest complaints about the game...
they did do a fairly good job of keeping them balanced I guess...but they should have cut down on a players mobility even more...and completely removed the ability to fire one of those things from the hip...You CANNOT fire an M60 from the hip in real life...its just an extremely cheap and fake aspect of the online play; some dude swinging an M60 around with deep penetration and double tap...you can't do that...
as far as the accuracy...it is cheap I guess...but those things really are very accurate and have very long range...if they would have made it impossible to spring with a light machine gun...then we are in business imo...its not that bad anymore, doesn't seem like that many people use them...but man was it annoying when the game first released to have guys being in a different room, yet blindly splattering you by just waving a LMG around...
are going to get shafted by this patch, it's hard enough to find a local host as it is, now as soon as an American/European joins the next round they will be host & ruin it for everyone else.
i hope this patch gets rid of that pesky COD4 aim bot....
on the PSN?...doubt it...its just people that are 'good'...only possibility is a lag switch, but IW claims such a device will crash the whole game...as was the devs intention...
The PS3 is getting the same features that the 360 got a few weeks ago. The patch on the 360 was well worth it. A little more lag for a couple of days, but good after. However, there are a few more "host ended game" messages now. But the extra features really make it fun. Sniping is now worthwhile, and the kill cams will make you pull your hair out from those perfect grenade throws. What they REALLY need a patch for is joining a game in progress with 10 seconds left. Now THAT is stupid. What were they thinking not setting a limit to it?
they should just release it on Easter sunday, and say Jesus lives again !
FINALLY! I can mute all YOU punk 4ss teenagers and losers. You know who you are. The ones that insist on spamming the mic with their sh1t music or making inane comments like 'my house' or 'night night' after a frag. THE MUTE WILL BE GLORIOUS!! This game will be great again. The idiot, to decent gamer ratio is through the roof lately. That's right! No one wants to hear your sh1t hop or lame ass metal songs. STFU and PLAY!
don't forget about the nose-breathers.
or the foreigners.... it's ok, I'm Japanese. I mean the non-engrish speaking ones.
or people eating crunchy munchies. Damn you people for having fun while inebriated in one way or another whilst disturbing others. That's a no no.
can't wait ! anything to shut up all those 10 year old kids screaming as you blow their heads off :)
yeah , the mute function will be worth it's weight in dead 360's
LOL. You droids have to wait beyond even for a patch?!?!?! that patch was released months ago.
its about time... about time. Can't wait, Sniper Acc - Acog Acc - and Host Migration. Not to mention the handy mute button lol
