Fat Princess Multiplayer Issue

It seems that Fat Princess has been faced with the same horrors that affect a lot of day 1 releases on PSN. Many have reported the inability to connect online to games. Hopefully more information will be available about this in the near future. Let's hope that this will find a quick fix.

Fat Princess Multiplayer Issues.
PostDateIcon July 30th, 2009 | PostAuthorIcon Author: Evan Velez

It seems that Fat Princess has been faced with the same problems that affect a lot of day 1 releases on PSN. Many have reported the inability to connect online to games. This problem is most likely attributed to not having enough servers online initially. Let’s hope that this will find a quick fix.

I mean really? This is no different than a forum post.

OgTheClever3304d ago

I can only speak from personal experience but I tried the matchmaking dozens of times today, yet every single attempt ended with a message saying I was unable to connect to the host. The single online game I played was entered via a friend, where the lag ranged from just about bearable to unplayable.

I really hope these issues are temporary because the single player games have been amazing, aside from the dumb AI, and the gladiator mode is so much fun.

I find it amusing that some people just can't wait to attack Sony products. A game that has been out a couple of hours having some minor server issues from overcrowding.

Funny that nobody has been complaining at the official Playstation blog.

Cenobia3304d ago

Well..I wonder what the problem could be he...

^^^ LOL ^^^

she's a lady who loves the ping, not the bling!

RAAAAAGE3304d ago

Ya there's issues with hosts dropping mid game, and not being able to find another one. Bots online are lame. Not being able to host a match against 32 is lame. Says I can only host 12 players which is bullshit.

The_Beast3304d ago

lmao im effin playing it right now

Mozilla893304d ago

but I'm not sure if its worth the $15 and I bought BF 1943 recently... I wish there was a demo.

Lifendz3304d ago (Edited 3304d ago )

Cable modem and no problems with any other game. Just a day one bug. Oh well, back to "playing with myself" mode. How is it online?

Edit: Was able to play online through join a friend. For some reason I was having trouble getting in on my own. Fun game though.

guitarded773304d ago

I try to join a game 5 or 6 time and give up and play something. It is fun once your in a game, just don't take a break. Hope they have it together soon, this is a great game.

REALgamer3304d ago

Bad Xbox fans attack any issue Sony has, bad PlayStation fans attack any issue Microsoft has. Please don't spin it like only Sony ever gets negative article comments.

Eg: It was just the other day that there was the article about Activision banning CoD hackers on Xbox Live which drew many negative comments about the number of cheaters on 360 compared to PS3.

Seriously, there are lots of anti-Sony people and lots of anti-Microsoft people on N4G. No-one can play the victim here.

Apocwhen3304d ago

lol, that's ironic. Didn't see that article but since yesterday COD4 has been overrun with hackers online for the PS3...ruining the game for everyone.

Link added to story on the site. Sorry about that. Will hopefully get an answer soon.

Ethereal213304d ago

So is it really good? staring at the download screen....

wiggles3304d ago

I'm enjoying it...the matches are a little long would be my only complaint...I must have spent 45 mins during a essentially stale mate match and the host quit. But it's pretty fun, and I'm sure the game will move faster once everyone gets used to their class of choice and such.

I haven't had the problem that this article says....the only nit-pick I would have would be at times it feels laggy...but it is very minimal...not enough to break the game...but it's enough to notice...I'm sure it will be fixed with the patch that is effecting the other players apparently.

From what I've been seeing, this isn't a case of the "same horrors that affect PSN releases." It's the same issues that happened with BF1943; not enough servers to meet demand. Most people I've talked to have very few issues, actually; there just seems to be a vocal minority.

JonnyBigBoss3304d ago

Exactly what I was thinking. Since when has there been an online issue with new PSN games? Also, I played BF1943 on the day of release and recall 0 problems with matchmaking. I believe it was only an issue on the Xbox 360 counterpart.

LazyDevs3304d ago (Edited 3304d ago )

Man, you can not make a single comment without mouthing off about the 360. Actually i played 1943 day one, most of the day on my 360 with 0 problems. I was having squad issues which i still am to this day. But try going to battlefield website and you will see it was not just the 360 having issues. Your comments day in and day out have the lack of intelligence and research you so blindly type.

ryuzu3304d ago

What about the BF'43 on Xbox live, or the Gears issues - or the lack of live a couple of Christmasses ago?

Or L4D on Xbox and PC, or Demigod or... well you get the picture.

Hardly spsecific to PSN is it? Fanboy bloggin' ftl.


Tomarcus3304d ago

No fanboyism, it is just reported by many that the PSN has many more issues than the XBLA market place. Gunstar Heroes on PSN had broken online as well, there have been quite a few cases.

ryuzu3304d ago (Edited 3304d ago )

Um - are you seriously trying to say that PSN has some kind of general problem compared to other online services?

Can't be - that would be ridiculous, and demonstrate such a dire lack of knowledge of online gaming that I wouldn't bother responding!


EDIT : Oh wait, are you the person who wrote this blog entry? Well, maybe that explains both the entry and your comment.

-EvoAnubis-3304d ago

Tomarcus, please. I've checked both your links, and in each there was maybe 5 people that had issues, perhaps as many as 6 or 7. A drop in the bucket compared to the people that are playing the game and having a absolute blast.

If I were to simply go by this article, however, I'd think there was another SOCOM/GeOW2 incident.

It's absurd. I'm tempted to report it.

GiantEnemyCrab3304d ago (Edited 3304d ago )

Every one of those was reported on N4G and every one was turned into an anti-XBL flamefest. You want some links?

Please don't try and shovel the BS that we ignore problems with everybody but the PS3. That is not true. Deflect!

jmare3304d ago (Edited 3304d ago )

I don't think he meant that there weren't any calls of bullshit on those games, just that the article is retarded for implying that it's only PSN that these issues. Or maybe he is, who knows? I personally think this whole article is retarded, you expect an online game to have some issues, especially this generation. I don't think very many, if any, games have come out in the last few years that didn't have some fvck up at launch that needed to be fixed.

rockleex3304d ago

Crab's completely missing the point.

JonnyBigBoss3304d ago

Reported? Reported where? What about XBL going down for several days during the holidays last year and people demanding a refund, but getting a cheap free game instead? I have had my PS3 since Holiday 2007 and have had 0 issues with PSN. The only issues I've ever seen are with occasional problems with new firmware. Where is your source? Random posts on GameFAQ? Seriously, this isn't journalism, this is nonsense.

LazyDevs3304d ago

You guys can bicker back and forth and it won't solve a single problem. I have both systems and i know which one performs better online for me. So i could really care less what anyone else says or thinks. And maybe if you stuck to the actual comments instead of going off topic you would have more than one leg to stand on.
