Valve have opened a thread on the Steam forum for issues on the PS3 version of The Orange Box.
My problem is that I dont have the game. See if they fix that one
EDIT: A harmless joke and still disagreed with. TYPICAL!
Too True I dont see the point in buying it. Supporting people who don't support your choice in games is bad... Thats like paying for a lap dance and having the girl puke on you in the mean time, while your friend got a hotter one thats not piss drunk... Maybe a bad analogy but I cant think of a better one.
is really that big of a deal? does it wreck your social life? will your friends find out about it? will you be fired from your job? i hope i get a million disagrees, and even then i wont add something like
"EDIT: OMG WHY YOU DISAGREE WIT ME AAAAGH F YOU STUPID DUMMIES!!SADLKHSDF"
That comment was excellent. had me laughing anyway. So deserving of bubbles!
EDIT: above me. Yeah I couldnt give two F**ks about people disagreeing with me I'm just highlighting the spineless little [email protected]
no you shut up!
HAPPY NEW YEAR
in that boat too. However, I do have it in the mail now.
I registered at their forum to add my problems with the PS3 Orange Box, activated my account, and have to wait until an Admin/Mod approves my account.
Grr! I want to moan, complain, and berate! :P
But in the end when I actually had this game in my hand and was about to buy it, the boxart turned me off. It looked so bland. I know that's a silly reason and I also know it's a great game, but that's the honest truth.
Whoever designed the boxart should be fired on the spot for designing some of the dullest boxart ever made.
I agree completely the box art sucks!
I agree. Even if they had the Lambda, Portal, and Team Fortress symbols on three sides of a plain orange box, it'd be better.
It didn't sway my purchase, though. It's what inside that counts. :)
And if what is inside makes you want to "moan, complain, and berate!" that cant be a good thing!
that's gonna be one busy forum, the ps3 version of this game is just broken, plain and simple.
The only thing that is broken is Team Fortress I get kicked out of every match after 5 minutes.
play TF2 all the time. on PC, Orange Box cost $37 and it brings Peggle Extreme along with the 5 regular games. Buy PC version, you dont need a powerful computer, don;t buy the console versions.
ya no reason for me to buy this especially when i already own
cs, cs:s, dod, dod:s, hl, hl2, hl2 lost coast, hl2 ep1, hl2 ep2, tf, tf2, cod2, hl2 dm, portal, blue shift, opposing forces, and Death match classic.
soo i see no real point to own it on a console when i already own it ALL.
Infinity Ward did it, perfectly fine and produced GOTY COD4.
I like to see that they are willing to fix the broken product, but I have a MAJOR F*CKING ISSUE WITH THEM SELLING A BROKEN PRODUCT IN THE FIRST PLACE.
This isn't a 'trend' anymore. Console devs are now taking advantage of the market. Yes PC games released patches, but the released product for sale was still a good product. Issues were always found later that needed to be fixed.
Valve knew EA couldnt' port this properly. Yet they did it, sold it.. and are now half-assing fixing it.
I'm having awful trouble with my COD4 on PS3.
EDIT: All my friends here in Ireland are having the same trouble as me but some of the English and American guys I play with have trouble just nothing as severe as mine. Maybe it's a location thing.
Thats why its one of the GOTY for the PS3. I suggest you call Sony.
This is sad, the game doesn't even feature a decent online set-up like the 360.
I think that Valve taking this first step is a good start. Although EA ported the game to the PS3, its still Valve's brainchild and their responsibility to maintain the Half-Life franchise name as well as the reputation of Valve.
I personally have purchased the game but have not unwrapped it for this very reason. I believe that Valve will fix a good portion of the issues in time. The Orange Box PS3 has the potential to sell 500,000 units if these steps are taken.
And because of the issue's with this game i did not buy it
Every game on the PSFree is an issue. Return your toaster and buy a 360, girls!!!
"PSFree" is that suppose to be an insult? Seriously dude that was weak!
LOL fanboys are the winn0rz
I have to agree, that was pretty weak. System wars on the internet is funny. Imagine if your girlfriend and/or friends read all of your posts and comments regarding consoles ... would you be ridiculed?
They're just video games fellas. Enjoy each/all consoles.
Hmmm yer.... another bad port. Not Sony's fault but its still a laugh. Unlucky guys.
Actually, it is sony's fault. They were the one's that decided to use hardware that is not gamecentric. i.e. Cell processor
Yep. Uncharted was built for a console that isn't gamecentric. And UT3. And R&C. And Burnout Paradise. And Haze. And on and on... Do you even know what centric means?
the surround sound issue says it all: "where's my directx? I need my directx! you mean I have to write my own sound engine?? Fock that."
Probably 5 lines of trivial libaudio code missing but they can't even be bothered to write that... Windows coders... the worst of'em all.
Its good that valve cares about its reputation I didn't get it because it was a ea port I ended up getting for $25 on the pc.
If Valve cared about their reputation, they wouldnt have put out such a crap game that they KNOW had issues. They would not have dumped the port off on a company that is known for creating laggy ps3 games. They should wouldnt of had the CEO or VP come out an publically bash the PS3.
Shudnt it be "report your issues to EA"? Since Ea made the game...
I've defeated Half-Life 2 and have moved on to Episode 1 and I still have yet to encounter any serious issues...could just be me, but I was expecting PS2 Killzone lag all over the place from initial reports and I've run into nothing of the sort. Don't know yet what all the fuss was about. If they patch it, then so be it. I don't even mind the loading times despite many claiming them to be unacceptable.
Still haven't played Episode 2 though....that could be where I start raising my eyebrow.
Stuttering framerates online, afterdeath loading times, etc. I also heard that the PS3 owners want a hard drive install. I have a hard drive on my 360 Valve, please send a patch for me to and optimise my experience. I think its the best 80 Australian Dollars I have ever spent and all PS3 owners need these reported issues fixed but if Xbox owners can have these issues addressed to I'd be a happy man. I say reported as there are some very mixed opinions online from Gamers, some are saying it runs perfect for them and others state the framerate issues. It cannot be the graphics chips as Half Life 2 on both chipsets on the PC look way smoother that the 360 and PS3 versions.
Overall I must admit, PS3 owners at least deserve a cleaned up version thats at least as playable as its PC counterpart, but don't forget us Xbox 360 owners whom could use some of these fixes also.
the only issue i seem to have is it is it plays in stereo and not 5.1.
This is changing. We arent gonna see many more bad ports from Ea... unless the dont want to make any money from PS3 owners
rofl but teh cell
first fatty was too lazy to work out now he is too lazy to find the problems with his own crappy game.
With Gabe Newell still having part ownership in Valve, I don't think ps3 owners are going to see any love. He thinks the ps3 is a garbage game platform.
Gabe hates everything. Vista and 360 too. But please, continue hating on the PS3.
I was wondering why is it that when a 360 game has issues it is because of this.
it does not have Blu-ray
the HDD is not standard
the CPU is not good
the GPU is not good
it's bad because it's not a Sony device
The point I'm making is that bad code = bad code. I hate bad coded games with a passion. Framerate, v-sync, AA problems all drive me nuts. Keep the game in development if it is not finished. There are a few franchises that I stay away from because of bad coding. There are some that I can't live without though. I'm getting a PS3 the day Killzone 2 drops and it better not have issues with it.
Because its a half ass version.lol.As a matter of fact...they should call it HALF-ASS instead of HALF-LIFE.
i would just like to say that a half assed half-life is still better than most of the games released this year, Bia.
The Half-Life series sh*ts on any FPS. Go back to school kid.
I KEEP READING COMMENTS ABOUT A BAD PS3 PORT,WHERE ARE THE COMMENTS CONCERNING THE 360 VERSION?
OR IS IT OKAY TO IGNORE THE FACT THAT TEAM FORTRESS 2 ON THE 360 IS ABOUT AS STABLE AS BRITNEY SPEARS AFTER 5 SHOTS OF VODKA?
TRUST ME WHEN I SAY THIS: B-O-T-H VERSIONS HAVE THEIR SHARE OF PROBLEMS,THE O-N-L-Y COPY OF THE ORANGE BOX THAT HAS THE LEAST BUGS HAS THE LETTERS "PC" WRITTEN ON THE BOX.
OH,AND BEFORE THE BIASED XBOX 360 OWNERS THROW THE "LIES!" COMMENT:SEE ATTACHED PIC
Holy sh!t. Valve actually does care when their product ends up being a half-assed version of itself. You couldn't tell from thier handing of their franchise to a developer known to fvck up PS3 ports.
