Everyone should have an equal experience with the game, sad to see some gamers experiencing such problems

Heartnet2115d ago

nah hes just gotta adapt and l2p tbh :)

egidem2114d ago

If the multiplayer seems to work fine while single player has a bit of lag problem, obviously adapting won't be easy if he's switching back and forth between the modes.

Problem is that there's lag and it needs to be fixed, not ignored.

Increase camera sensitivity?

inveni02114d ago

To be honest, I didn't really notice it until I watched this video. I just beat the game today, and when I think back, I can admit to there being a little bit of lag. I almost went into options and adjusted sensitivity, thinking that was the problem, but it wasn't such a big deal that it prevented me from fairly easily beating U3 on "Hard".

MaxXAttaxX2114d ago (Edited 2114d ago )

That's what I thought too. Increase the camera/aim sensitivity.

Anyway, I just beat the game last night and no one that I know have had any problems at all.
Not sure it was THAT noticeable, unless someone takes the time to look for these issues.


- Exactly.

vulcanproject2114d ago (Edited 2114d ago )

150 milliseconds is a little high but not exactly excessive....when playing games whose framerates dip below 25FPS and are inconsistent then i could see it being a problem, the lag would be well over 150ms and it might be hard to adjust to that. Assuming UC3 is consistent, i believe this lag 'problem' is rather overstated...

Its not so much lag, its the directional on the stick some people might have issues with. Maybe they will patch it, but personally i didn't find it game breaking

ThdeGreatestOne2114d ago

TBH I don't feel a difference from Uncharted 2's aiming system to Uncharted 3's aiming.... Hrmmmmmm.

eldeladi2114d ago

He could have easily changed the mode on his TV for uncharted 3 to be one of those modes that do post processing which adds lag.

CommonSense2114d ago

there is a lag in the MP as well. i haven't played MP for about 2 weeks, so maybe they fixed it. but it was definitely there.

i must say, i' surprised i don't see many apologists saying "it's to give a weighty feel" like they did with killzone.

Dee_912114d ago (Edited 2114d ago )

@common sense
yea i havent played the mp in months possibly years ...

I got use to the aiming ... like i do with every shooter
People just love to complain if you ask me.

Rifkens2114d ago

I notice this alot on console games. Wireless technology is never good for gaming, thats I play PC :)

AngryTypingGuy2114d ago (Edited 2114d ago )

If Skyrim weren't coming out only 10 days later, I would've bought this one day one. It looks like waiting a little bit for a possible patch may be the way to go though. Either way, UC3 will be another masterpiece like its predecessors.

@Rifkens - When you have little kids that could possibly trip over a cord...wireless technology is great! Then again, I'd take wireless over wired any day, with or without kids.

gta28002114d ago (Edited 2114d ago )

I just got my platinum today. Beat it on crushing with mostly headshots. I never realized that this game had any issues. This seems like a lame attempt at trying to downplay this beat of a game. Been playing multiplayer all day and man oh man...I can't get enough! And I been beasting...this aiming thing isn't a sniper/headshot count on multiplayer can prove it :)

Maybe Gamersmint's friend (totally reliable source that would never attempt to exaggerate anything negative regarding the ps3) should try PUNCHING the control sticks.

darthv722114d ago

of the controller effect lag? Like when the battery is running low it isnt as responsive in communicating to the system.

andibandit2114d ago


Also why the hell is shooting mapped to the shoulder buttons???.

MaxXAttaxX2113d ago

It's always been that way. Have you not played Uncharted 1 or 2?

I don't know about you, but I shoot using my index finger. Trigger is only useful for racing games.

TBM2114d ago

I noticed something a little off, but im getting along fine with the game. It's not really ruin my experience as im loving the game.

AsianOnRoute692114d ago

How much do you wanna bet that this dude doesnt have is tv set to a game mode of some sort to reduce the input lag cuz, I have a 70 inch sharp led tv, and if my ps3 input isnt in game mode, I get the same input lag as this guy.

WitWolfy2114d ago

-Face Palm- some people are so STUPID when it comes to TV's seriously

milohighclub2114d ago (Edited 2114d ago )

Witwolfy. I don't get why you say that my tv has input lag unless its in game mode which is annoying as when playing in 3d motion plus is needed and can not be used in game mode.

AsianOnRoute692113d ago (Edited 2113d ago )

Dude, 3d motion plus adds post processing for mainly cable and films, that will add input lag to games. Of course game mode is gonna have that option disabled.

Raul_72114d ago

Yeah actually one of the minor flaws of U3 include the inaccurate aiming, and also the game has some glitches, like there was one time where "Cutter" did not go to open the door with "Sully" in a level and I had to restart the checkpoint. The cursor disappeared while I was shooting and it stayed that way until I restarted the checkpoint. Also the game froze on me one time during the ship level.

But still, I have to admit that this is the most Epic adventure game I have played so far.

StraightPath2114d ago

so it wasn't just be experiencing the slow aiming..hope patched soon. The aiming feels sluggish i am at chapter 6 guess use to it already now playing on hard first play through.

zeddy2114d ago

it just takes a while to adapt, the controls were stiff at the start now they're fine.

likedamaster2114d ago

They had to compromise somewhere.

BluePumpkin72114d ago (Edited 2114d ago )

it's all because of the useless 3d feature they added
they compromised too much for too little
the graphics are worse than the original E3 trailer and the animations are really quriky unlike U2 and there is no motion blur and now all thiese lag issues
i hate sony for forcing 3d into their games
and if you're skeptical about the graphics being worse than the E3 trailer look at this [scroll down to the fourth post]

milohighclub2114d ago

No it isn't, its there in uncharted 2

ziggurcat2114d ago

uh, the top image in post #4 is the released version, not the E3 demo (as confirmed by another poster later on in the thread). so how is that worse, exactly?

MaxXAttaxX2113d ago

I have the game. It doesn't look like that.

Don't like 3D? Then don't use the feature. You'll get your better graphics.
Also, what do the animations have to do with it?

SnotyTheRocket2113d ago

its naughty dog people, they'll fix it.

jazzking20012115d ago

Naughty Dog should have patched this up by now

stu8882114d ago

I'm more disappointed by the complete lack of any motion blur, which makes the game in places look less impressive than uncharted 2.

Don't understand why it isn't in there, especially when naughty dog tweeted that it was.

Hope they patch that in too.
