MP1st - "Modern Warfare 3 has had a dodgy launch on all consoles; however, PS3 players have had the shortest end of the stick."
Hmm, haven't experienced any issues other than kicking ass haha.
I heard that's gonna be patched soon ;)
Not had a problem, strange??? I play in a party of 4 as well.
I have had screen pausing a lot even though my connection is good.
LOL thanks for the laugh Mister_V ...bubbles to you! I've got COD BO on PS3 when it came out and was buggy as hell at first, now I got CODMW3 on x360 and it is not as buggy but the game lag so much :( BTW is it just me or does anybody else feels that the menus screens are a step down from BO? it seems that they just put it together in the last minute.
i'm just tired of getting killed after i'm 8 feet past the corners, total BS
Chat quality is absolutely HORRIBLE. For a game with it's budget and team size, it's really unacceptable.
It is from Activision, you think they are going to put anything but minimal effort?
They should have had a beta test! :)
again, it's ACTIVISION! for them, the actual term "beta" doesn't exist! their "beta" is last year's CoD and this year's is the beta for next year's CoD!
no problems here tbh
I haven't had a problem either. I'm on the 360, so I don't know what this all consoles have had a problem so far.
Anyone heard of an update for the 360 read error problem for this game?
What does this article have to do with the Xbox 360? However, yes... it affected what seems like a handful of people of the millions that bought it that are enjoying the game with no problems.
I've lots of lag and frame rate issues, it skips frames a lot and makes for a jumpy experience. I'm playing mw2 while they fix it. That's runs great on PS3
Haha I chuckled at that comment :) maybe cuz its half 4 in the morning but
dont really have problems, was surprised that the netcode on launch day wasn't that terrible for me on the ps3. But the voice chat definitely needs some work on.
I wish I was as lucky as the people above me. Its absolutely terrible for me, connection wise. Was debating if I should record how bad it is for me because its annoying and game breaking. The funny thing is I didn't have issues with Black Ops when it came out, I was one of the lucky people. then they "fixed" it and I had issues until they fixed it again. lol Now I'm on the other fence and it sucks.
Same here bud, sometimes it take's up to 8-10 attempts to get into a online game. Very annoying :-( so I'm happy that a update is in the works.
Same here,I'm not playing untill a patch.Liking Blops more sofar MW3 is too fast and full quick scoping.
No need to make a video, ppl one the MW3\PS3 forum have already done that http://www.callofduty.com/t... I play on the 360, and from reading forums, i get a feeling the PS3 version is worse off. However me and 3 friends spent 2 hours yesterday, trying to get into the same COD party, and it just wouldnt work, it's so freaking lame.
Please fix the shotguns they are way under powered. And fix the lag and connection problems too.
They apparently buffed up the SPAS a bit in the last patch.
shotguns are for scrubs.
Sandy Ravage laughs at you.
Shotguns are for scrubs esp. on this game.
Declaring that "shotguns are for scrubs" is for scrubs. lol
whats wrong with the voice chat sounds okay to me? and ya the lag is really annoying theres been countless times where im literally shooting air out of my gun.
ok for the ppl complaining this is the what? 5th call of duty game on current consoles and each and every one has repeated the same problems over and over again why do you continue to buy this crap.
I find the game fun.
How fun is it to keep paying for the same game, replete with the same problems?
Maybe he likes the formula of the COD games. One dev mentioned on twitter that, "it's like going back to the same restaurant over and over because you know what you like and you want it again."
^Hicken What people spend there money on is none of your concern. And let's not act like this is the only game to have issues when first released, let's just hope that the PS3 issues are resolved soon so people can start enjoying their game.
There's nothing wrong with enjoying the formula of CoD. Even I admit that it's fun. Hell, I enjoy the games, too, for a while, at least. But there shouldn't be the same flaws in MW3 that have been around in the past four games. No matter how much I may like a game's "formula," knowing that I'm playing for the same flaws each time takes a good deal of the fun out of it. @DrRichtofen It IS my concern. What people buy- especially in droves- affects what I wind up having access to. You may think it's a "conspiracy," but people make what people want. If the majority of people wanted Smart cars, for example, then other vehicles would end production. I hate Smart cars, but my options would be extremely limited if that's all auto manufacturers made. Games are no different. In fact, games are far more responsive to consumer desire than the auto industry.
@Hicken "It IS my concern. What people buy- especially in droves- affects what I wind up having access to. You may think it's a "conspiracy," but people make what people want." What are you talking about? Conspiracy? When did I say anything about a conspiracy? I stated that you shouldn't care for what things people buy ("people make what people want" apparently 10 million + people want and like the cod formula so why deny them it, as if they don't matter?) And that I hope IW releases an update soon to fix these PS3 issues.
@hicken I find it funny that you constantly troll 80% of the CoD articles. We get it, you dont like CoD. But you don't have to be apart of the "sheep" that hate CoD and have nothing better to do but post nonsense and spew venom toward people who actually enjoy the game. Dr.Richtofen is right it is NONE of your concern what millions of people like and yes other companies are trying to follow CoD's style but it is NOT stopping other different games from releasing and being successful. Just ask: Skyrim Uncharted 3 Batman: ac Dark souls And other games releasing now: Saints Row 3 UMvC3 Legend of Zelda And a whole lot more. Stop being blinded by your own hatred of the game and stop being apart of the "we hate CoD" herd and move on.
why watch Avatar?..when you can watch ferngully... why watch Rush Hour?..just watch 48 hours/Another 48 hours... why listen to Elvis?..listen to Chuck Berry.. because it's entertaining and fun and a distraction from the stress of life.. and as much as this game has sold..a lot of you N4G'ers are lying to yourself...you know you've bought the damn game but want to bash it cause it's all the rage right now..
Guilty, and I always complain too. But when they work they are one of the best Online experiences.
"ok for the ppl complaining this is the what? 5th call of duty game on current consoles and each and every one has repeated the same problems over and over again why do you continue to buy this crap. " Since when is it wrong to admit that a game you like has faults that need to be fixed? A laggy chat system doesn't make the game unplayable but it can be alittle annoying at times. That issue btw, was not experienced once by me or my friends on black ops, so don't be ignorant and say every game has the same problems. Oh yeah I forgot, since it's cod it HAS to be perfect or else you shouldn't buy it because then it's "crap". Like BF3 and even UC3 don't have their own issues :/ You people (haters) just don't get it, you never will. You try to say that a game you don't like but millions of people do is garbage; Guess what...we like/love the game, nothing you say will change our minds expect for our experiences with the game. Where the hell did the idea that a game had to COMPLETELY change itself in order to still be a good/great game come from? How many games build new engines game after game?...games that don't sell like cod. Guess what, cod DOES change year after year...real cod vets know that. If it's not enough of a change for you, go play BF3...no one cares, and no one will miss you. The Call of Duty Formula works, it sells...not because of "mass marketing" and any other bs reason, but because that the formula that it has WORKS and people love it. I don't go to the mall-Chinese place where I always get my Sesame Chicken and get upset after every meal that they don't change how they make the chicken every time....I love it, why change it? If enough people got sick of what cod is, then the formula would be completely changed, it would have to be changed. Right now it's just unnecessary for what the game is achieving in BOTH fanbase and sales; and if you don't like it, don't play it. But that doesn't make it right to bash on something that obviously alot of people love just because of you believe your opinions are facts. Want an example?: I played fallout 3 and Vegas...never like them, never liked much about them. But for some whatever reasons, the games have a massive fanbase, and I respect that enough to not go bringing that game down on the internet to pathetically justify my own distaste with the games. Opinions are like assholes, everyone has them...and cod haters are them :) Edit: I'm done ranting. I sound mad, and I'm not lol. I just had to speak up today and yesterday after hearing all this BS about cod on N4G.
Well at least we know how much of a fanboy you are you didnt take the time to read anything i said lol. I didnt say the game itself had to change did I? I mentioned issues not repetitiveness, meaning the cannot migrate host the getting kicked back out to the lobby friends not joining your game even when in your party, the lag, the cheaters glitchers, horrible hit detection/hit boxes. In quickness to defend your game for whatever reason you just end up looking like a fool. the biggest thing you overlooked before you went on your fanboy rant was "OK FOR THE PPL COMPLAINING" This game has been using the smae engine going on five years and they have yet to fix the technical issues that plague the game year after year whether its IW or Treyach. By that stupid rant you went on you can see why CoD keeps selling regardless of the issues it continues to have its easy enough to play so you "CoD vets" and noobs alike can feel like they have the biggest e-peen and they'll go to the ends of the earth to defend it. As far as BF3 and UC3 issues what are they? Havent been booted out a BF3 or UC3 game since either games launch voice chat is fine no host migrations and always smooth. Point is you cant deny all call of duty's technical issues, well actually i guess you can and will since millions of ppl love it. oh well
@RioKing You got pwned!!! Son!!! Lmao
@jukins, my reply wasn't just towards you. One of the biggest complaints by most cod haters is that "its the same game every time". I hear that in almost every sheepish cod-hating comment on N4G. To address what you just said, I'm not denying that cod has issues...they're just not even close to being game-breaking ones. UC3 had (idk if it still does) aiming issues, BF3 had crazy server issues. Call me a fanboy just because I enjoy the game & think the game gets the amount of criticism that it does on here mostly due to the fact that it's so successful. Cod is so much more fun and re-playable than most shooters out there, but since it runs on an engine that's not brand new then its garbage? And when I say millions of people love it, I'm saying that to prove that whatever the game does, works...period. Most ppl buy the game, and play it all year long. They're not forced to, they want to...why's that?
first came out the online play was horrible but because its cod it gets blown out of all proportion wiv the bf3 fanboys drooling over it
Killzone 3 online was horrible? That's news to me. COD problems on the PS3? I'm not surprised in the least.
Compared to Killzone 2, Killzone 3 was the biggest POS in shooter history.
but here's the thing ALL call of duties suffer the same issues over and over. Yea when kz3 first came out it had issues but those issues werent present in kz2 and were fixed. BF3 "fanboys" as you call them are enjoying the game (me being one of them)sans the lag (servers ftw), hit detection and crashing. So which games "fanboys" are blowing things out of proportion?
OH! Wait, I could have of sworn this story is familier? OH YEH! Black ops -_-
Yes people tend to forget how many games in this franchise have been broken... especially on PS3. MW2, Black OPS, now MW3. It will be the same again next year, when inevitably the next COD is announced with the SAME issues.
I have had some lag issues but overall the game is very fun and balanced.
At all above COD haters- PLEASE give me one online shooter with 10 million + gamers that has never seen glitchers, hackers and those that exploit maps...you can't. Gears, Halo, COD, BF the list goes on and on. No game is perfect and the more popular the title the more server the problem. MW3 is fun and fast but not without issues LIKE EVERYTHING else. I have no complaints as it is expected. Voice chat is my online compaint.
Halo's glitches were actually fun. The sword lunge or the best glitch ever....the BXB glitch. Some called it a glitch, I called it a hidden combo.
sigh another die hard Cod defender. If you actually look its not ppl complaining about the gameplay per se. Its more of the technical issues every game in the series has had since the first on current consoles. Before being so quick to call people ,who say things you dont like about your precious call of duty, take the time and actually see what they say because it jsut might be the truth.
only issue im faced with is hit detection, i see sniper bullets fly past me and i still get hit... when i play kill confirmed i die and the tags fall 5-6 steps behind me, its like the animation of my character is out of sync and a "ghost" behind me is where i get killed
Don't believe everything you hear on the internet. The game is fine. Perfectly playable on PS3.
Im not "hearing" anything on the internet, like alot of other players, im experiencing it.
There's a couple issues with the hit detection and the lag delay in gunfights for the PS3. And the annoying problem with sending a message on the game boots you back to the XMB, overall I'm enjoying the game, just a couple lag issues. I haven't had any problems with the voice chat, although I kind of hate how PS3 gamers on every single game, have loud ass mics with that echo, and none of them know how to go to their settings and fix their Bluetooth audio settings..... annoying as hell and this is on every single damn game.
that's because most of the crappy ass mics that ps3 users have don't have noise cancellation. I get highly annoyed when I'm playing games on the ps3 at my cousins house. that be why I prefer the mic Microsoft supplied me with for my Xbox.
Biggest issues for me are the 'frameskipping' or lag issues. Even in a room where everyone is 4 or 3 bar it stutters a lot. I've started to enjoy using the single shot assault rifle but have to give up in some rooms just based on hit detection and lag
Lag is a bitch and so is the hit detection. I can't say how many times I got killed after I turned a corner trying to evade bullets. Then I watch the killcam and the person wasn't even accurate and shot behind me yet somehow as I turned the corner and died. I'm assuming its lag but it almost looks like a glitch. The knife also needs to lose some range and be more user controlled and not aim assisted. Now you just press a button and your character automatically turns and stabs.
I agree as well as running needs to be slowed down a tiny bit and aim assist dumbed down.hit boxes need work,but Most of all the horrible spawning need fixing asap why can this game ever spawn me in a spot were people arn't able to kill me in 5 seconds.
I haven't had any major issues thus far. Just waiting for elite to get up and running.
I'm not having this issue, but def getting lag and frame skipping quite frequently. Also the chat quality is total crap.
i agree....when i play splitscreen multiplayer with my bro, my game starts hanging in between. i would want IW to release a patch as quickly as possible..
How many games have been released? Yet they still can't this right? With all the money this franchise makes, you'd think that these issues would be sorted before release, or minimised as much as possible. Instead they release a broken game, which takes months to patch and run as it should... then what? Another COD is annonced, with this one forgotten, but with the same issues. Its MW2 all over again. Wake up people.
No issues here. Runs perfect to be honest. Except for the fact that its the same game I bought 2 years ago. Which is also not really that big of a deal since I really enjoy the Modern Warfare series.
Only problem I seen is the double XP timer showing all nines on my account. Other then that I just had some lag in some games but that is it.
We paid alot of $$$ for this game. Look at all the $$$ it made in just 5 days!! $775 million dollars!! http://www.qtgamer.com/2011... I have the solution.... Dedicated servers. Period. They would still make profit!! Hell, even more people would buy it!
is psn under maintenance??
Yes, 8am to 10pm PST http://blog.us.playstation....
