PS4 players picking up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt tomorrow will need to download a 482MB day one patch to help resolve performance issues noted in early reviews.
It is so close but yet so far, one more sleep and i get to play this. http://mashable.com/wp-cont...
@Suli Dude just send me your money, you wont have to buy another game again.
been playing since saturday and the patch was out then.(took me about 25-40 seconds to download. it still has framerate issues and pop in during videos and the load screens are crap. u dont die as much as bloodborne but the loading is just as long on ps4(not played others). great game but jeez way to much stuff.within an hour i prob had over 50 quests that was way to high for my lvl. also the getting stuck in trees is really annoying or press X to get on horse not popping up. also having to get of horse at a gate walk through gate and whistle horse to get back on.
rather small patch.
half a gig is a small patch? :O lol i guess in relation to game sizes now you'd be right but seriously plenty of games that are awesome are about that size or a bit more in their entirety
But it is a small patch , things have changed and the size of games too . You can count on one hand the 2014-2015 retail games with a patch around such a "small" size
Nah, a small patch was The Order day one patch, 30mb.
Crazy to remember the good 'ol PS2 days with a 8mb memory card. How did we ever get by? ;)
10 hours left bitches
For you, not for me. It says on my Amazon account, that my CE has ''expected delivery date'' as Friday.WaaaaaAAAAAAHHHHH!
No,I assure you that Geralt will follow your commands on Wednesday.
I received an email from BOL.com a few hours ago that mine has been shipped and it's with next day delivery :) Sadly I know that it will be delivered between 4 and 5pm since on tuesdays they are always rather late, le sigh. You know what would be awesome if it were possible to already start downloading the day 1 patches if you don't have a digital copy. What's the harm in allowing that?
Problem is the metadata for both the retail disc and the digital version might not be the same . It's pretty much why if you purchase a digital copy of a game on ps4 , for a game you already had on a disc . You'll only be able to use the same saves , and be asked to uninstall the disc , and download the game
Why do people preorder? I would never be able to risk waiting for this game. Just run to wal mart at midnight and you wont have to wait til sometime after Tuesday afternoon.
Because people i know often get their pre-ordered games before some of those stores . And obviously preorder bonuses as incentives do work , even if we dislike most of them
Mine says 15 hours! Can't wait any longer!
I love the amount of Polish that CD Projekt RED put into their games.
A relatively small patch. I hope CD Projekt knows that there are actually gamers who appreciate their efforts. Unlike the Vocal minority.
Well, I get use to it.
What would our games be like with out patches??? I think they do this to keep from filling up the CDs, or they game is so crap they have to patch it before we play the game
Ask games like true Crimes on ps2 , or any sports game serie . See , publishers abuse that system , but the alternative wouldnt be any good or better in any way or shape
You'd be surprised how many bugs are present on release day in even the most tested games. I was watching a dev diary not too long ago and they were talking about how there was still over 2,000 bugs in the code just a few days from release, and it wasn't a game that was buggy from what I played and from what I read in reviews.
As games get bigger and bigger there's more and more code that will have bugs. Even games in the past when there was no way to patch them afterwards games had bugs. Have to say that sometimes I do believe publishers abuse patches so they don't have to postpone the release by a month or two...
Picking it up on Friday, the day I break up from work for a week... Sorted.
Wow, see every other development studio. THIS is how day one patches SHOULD BE! There is no excuse to tell me I am buying a full COMPLETE game then patch in the last quarter of the game, it is BS and we don't deserve that. This is what happens when you take your time and actually finish your game.
still to finish bloodborne
This is a rather small patch, which is a good thing. This will take up a lot less space and shows that the game is mostly in perfect shape to distribute. Those that have 5+GB for a patch are those that are broken games and make me cringe when I go to install my game. Also "what would our games be like without patches?" Hmmm, that could be a tricky question. Back in the PS1/2, xbox and N64 days games had less detail than they do now and less complexity as well, so testing to make sure it worked properly was a lot easier. Not that some did not have their own glitches. Games were also able to be turned into a finished product in a year or a year and a half. But the downside was that if there ever was a problem, it was impossible to fix it. Now games have so much detail and complexity in so many aspects. It becomes hard for certain problems to be visible on normal testing. Its once it hits the masses that problems become more evident because certain gamers might do different things in their playthroughs (I am talking more about glitch problems versus a game running smoothly, which should be evident from the start of testing).
Yeah . People tends also to forget that while development was better controlled , there wasnt always some golden era with bug free games and only cute and fun glitches after the 16bits era . Not unless you mostly played nintendo games . There were still tons of saves ruining bugs at specifics points of quite a few games , among other things . Left alone unless a new version and re-released happened And that for some major japanese releases , like Star Ocean 3 ... we were lucky they happened over a year after their initial japanese releases , to fix some rather major bugsat the western release .
Waited till the last minute basically to get the digital copy with the expansions(btw the theme you get for ps4 is pretty cool) but I can't wait! Its already downloaded soon as I get home from work tonite its game time.
can't believe the release date is here. I get to play this masterpiece this afternoon after avoiding gameplay footage etc. it's been worth the wait.
I dont know if its for playing the game early or what.. But I got it on saturday, downloaded the patch.. And the game has crashe on me constantly.. Once my ps4 ejected the disc and gave me an error message.. Disconected the ps4 from the network but still some problems persisted..
My game is f'ed too. Hud vanished like 10 hours in. Uninstalledd the game and reinstalled and now cannot load my saves. Day one patch didn't fix it. Not to mention all the other minor bugs I'm experiencing. Main one being the dialogue sound isn't in sync with the video half the time. I'll be watching someone else speak but be hearing Geralts previous sentence.
Yeah.. It is kind of a bummer.. Mine has crashed the system twice and stuck once in a loading screen.. Had to restart the app.. What I find weird is why haven't any reviews adressed this issues..
With patches becoming more and more common I could not be happier that my beautiful wife got me a two terabyte drive last week for my birthday. I was already having to manage my 500gb to keep space open.
Awesome that won't take long to download
This is what I like to see when a patch comes out. I know it's annoying when games come out with day one patches, but I'm really happy this isn't some 10GB or higher patch that some games have gotten day one.
Nice on both sides at least it isn't a huge GB patch.
