It seems that Sony has another title filled with problems on its hands. After the disastrous launch of Driveclub (a game that is still not functioning at 100 percent), Sony has issued another title that doesn’t fulfill promises.
Hasn't this game been out a while now? First I've heard of any issues!
There's issues, Mainly to do with online. I've had it crash a fair few times.
They should get the cast to do an audio error message. That'd take the sting away!
At this point maybe it makes sense to start writing articles when games launch without issues. Those seem to be the exception at the moment.
Let's see what today's new patch covers.
IGN did reduce the game's score by quite a lot because of the problems it had. Its just that the people, unsurprisingly, started bashing IGN because of the lower score than what most sites gave the game and the review wasn't taken seriously by most people.
No, the backlash against ign was cos they gave a free pass to AC U mentioning that had bugs but not docking as they should at the end, while lbp had as the prime factor for docking points bugs, i was at that forum bashing them.
Seriously? its 12/3 and youre just now talking about launch problems? Could not be THAT significant
Have you played the game? The issues exist and they are fairly significant. Still a great game, but it needs to be patched.
It's true. I've been playing mostly offline because online wasn't working so well for me. I've still had to re-do two levels because of bugs though. Kind of annoying but the game is still phenomenal and a more polished product than Unity.
I own the game.... And I can honestly say I've only run into minor bugs so far
Yes and they are not significant or game breaking. Annoying however, hardly what this is making it out to be.
I own it also and have only come across minor bugs also.
The patch came out today.
Why are sonys exclusives having these issues anyway? They make the best games and I am finding this and Driveclub's problems ridiculous already. I think too much focus is put on online portions of games and then the base code of the game suffers - these required day one patches are a pain already too. Heres an idea for the devs : Ship the game complete on disc day one!!! Not half ass it and dowload the day one patch to work out any launch bugs bullshit they seem to keep giving us instead.
I'm hoping for redemption with U4 and Bloodborne. The Order seems like more of a gamble because it's their first non-portable game. Could go south, but they still have time and the footage looks like amazing.
@cruzngta It's not only Sony's exclusives that are having launch problems. This new gen needs to get a handle on launches. And I'm confident that they will as they get more familier with these consoles.
I never thought I would live to see the day when patch became a dirty word. I feel much shame. But some of these incompetent developers should feel much greater shame. I understand budget and time constraints, and the pressure to get the game out for the holidays, but it does these companies no good to release a broken product. What you break is consumer trust, and the people who spend money to buy your products may be so turned off by the experience they refuse to buy any of your products in the future. Fix your games, please!!
And then there's MCC
It's starting to look like a sneaky form of drm. Break your game then the bootleggers have to connect to the internet. This sort of explains why 3rd parties won't make wiiu games because wiiu gamers won't tolerate the drm patches.
I hate that it's broken because it's a phenomenal game, apart from that. I still can't use the popit without five seconds of lag. -_-
I just picked this up with Lego Batman 3 PS4 Amazon Black Friday bundle and I absolutely love it. I havent messed with online yet but I havent come across anything terrible. Games have little hiccups here and there and nothing has been near as significant as my character falling through the ground and in to oblivion over and over again like in Unity. This games problem is it released against too many bigger games. It has almost 5 stars on BestBuy.com and an 8.9/10 on Gamestop.com. i am pretty sure it will be just fine.
9.2 on Gametrailers ;-)
So the IGN reviewer has been vindicated about the game breaking bugs
There are no game breaking bugs. The game works absolutely fine.
Did you play it?
@kenshiro100, @Bennibop and @Spotie. So you guys are saying the article from GI and people on this very comments are lying?
Except they aren't game breaking bugs. Which means, you haven't played it.
I know it has some bug issues that need to be fixed indeed, however the game is still amazing imo and a blast to play. Hopefully any issues get sorted out quickly.
I have had ZERO issues with this game.
Any ideas as to why this has become so prevalent? Is it strictly a rushing games issue, or the added stress of millions of new consoles on the networks?
The added stress of millions of new consoles on the network is what has made games have online issues. Some people are reporting issues durring campaign. That has nothing to do with the network. That has to do with the developer releasing something too early and not do4ing a good enough job to iron out the problems. Games are going to have glitches and bugs to a certain degree. It is the extent of those bugs and the way the developer handles them that decides the fate of the title. I havent played enough to experience any big issues. Others have. We will have to see how they address the problems. They need to hurry because this game is pretty good and selling like crap.
Rush rush rush, make money make money, that's all it is anymore... We need beta testers back bad, it's going to hurt gamers if they don't stop releasing broken games...
You must not have played LBP 3, it's not broken. All games have issues, some minor, some major. LBP 3 is in the former category.
It crashed on me at random 4 or 5 times. The bugs and glitches are spread throughout with noticeable frame-rate issues too. I decided to just put it back in the case after a few days of playing. It's a great game but I don't want to play it while it has issues. As soon as they release a patch I will start playing it again.
Ive noticed no problems, other than the fact that the graphics look incredibly dated i didnt really expect a whole lot from the graphics though.
I've had nothing but problems with it since purchasing it. 2 corrupt saves, falling through the floor, moving through objects, And now I can't even load into any levels without it crashing to the PS UI. It's totally unplayable. I don't understand why some of you are saying it works fine? Unless it's my PS4 console.
I wish they'd fix the store for this as it's been 2 weeks and I still can't download half the costumes and level packs I purchased on the previous games. The psn store is missing a ton of costume packs and some packs even tell me to re buy them when I already own them.
My only gripe with LBP3 is t he way you search for levels, to be honest, It's a bit bland. In LBP2 you could hand pick the attributes of a level you wanted to search for even choose between LBP & LBP2 creations. Gateway MT6706 2008
