PS3 Orange Box Not So Broken?

A recent preview on the PlayStation 3 version of Valve's The Orange Box was less than kind. Sure, the PS3 edition of Portal seems fine, but the adventures of Gordon Freeman were given a lashing. Terms "downright unplayable", "slideshow" and "substandard" were peppered throughout the preview of the Half-Life 2 portions of the collection. Many days late and frames per second short, PS3 owners were finally getting a stinker of a port from EA UK. Recent previews from IGN and Gamespy, however, paint a slightly less depressing picture.

Sad ya but dont expect much from this.

Surprising enough Im hearing Burnout might be decent was hoping for a new racing game soon... Still gonna wait until I see some reliable reviews.

Danja3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

Nope this game was meant to be played on PC

and once I heard they handed it over to EA...that's when I stopped wanting this game on PS3

UT3>>>PS3>>FTW ..!!!

All I hear is lots of sobbing.

A PS3-fanboy looking forward to a FPS. Now that's funny lol!
Your logic is missing. If Half-Life 2 is better to play on a PC, even more so is UT3. I'd say most FPS's are. But then again, you had to say it cause you're getting a crappy port of Half-Life 2...

actually it is ment to be played on the pc and halflife and halflife2 were the best fps of their time. I lost interest after they started adding episodes even though I will prpbably have to finish it one day just to see how the story turns out.

Even if it isn't as broken, it is still broken. Frame rate issues are still present in Episode Two which shouldn't be there. Can't believe that even with a freaking two month delay, EA can't iron out these kinds of frame rate issues. They are well on their way to becoming the most hated developer by PS3 owners. Actually, I think they are already there. They are just cementing that position. EA should have just delayed this game to next year and make sure that everything is nice and smooth. But no. They want to compete against UT3, UT3 which has Mark Reign one of the least douchiest people on the planet (he loves the PC, PS3, and 360), against the gimped Orange Box and Gabe Newell, possibly one of the most disliked men by the PS3 population.

-edit- At TPlarkin, quit bullsh!tting. No need for fanboy comments like that.

No....more like putting in an iron box, sealed by a laser, and dropping into a volcano.

tplarkin73949d ago

When are we going to face the facts. The PS3 isn't as powerful as the 360. The excuses don't matter. Games play better on 360.

Infinity Ward
Naughty Dog

blusoops3949d ago
