Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer comments on the server load, possible spawning abuse, balancing concerns resulting from Boosters/Kickbacks and other details about the multiplayer beta in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.
I'm glad they gave an answer on what happens when your PSPlus subscription runs out. I was worried I'd only have a few short days with the beta.
Am i the only one who didnt get the beta code?
you're actually probably the only one who didn't realize that you can get ps+ for free if you click on welcome back on psn store, And that if you go into the ps+ section, that the beta is right there waiting for you to download.
What code? You can just download it from the PS Plus section of the store.
oh my bad guys, i thought the beta was ''private''
It is private, but lucky for you Sony gave everyone a free trial of Plus so pretty much everyone can get in on it because of that.
"A lot of people hitting our servers is precisely what one of the things we’re looking forward to as part of this Beta. We believe we’ve got a setup that will handle a huge amount of traffic, but I know we definitely want to test server load." They underestimated
Agreed. I've been trying for the last hour trying to get inside a match, but I'm stuck at the start screen with the error "Error initializing session manager"
same...and psn in general is acting funny. having trouble just bringing up my friends' details. *sigh* it's always something with psn.
This is really getting old. At this point, I don't even expect betas to even work at launch anymore. It happened with SOCOM 4, KZ3, etc.
Hey, i'm in. I like this Uncharted TV thing...gives you something to watch while you wait to find a game (which, btw, can take a whiiiiiile) EDIT: Okay, i take it back. As soon as i typed this, i got dropped from PSN. wtf is goin on?
keep trying, i had to sit for like 5 mins to get past the initilization error, but i got in, now im just sitting watching "finding player..." message lol btw @midnytrain its a beta, its not supposed to work perfectly, thats what youre there for. the people trying to get on are helping ND test to make sure it works on launch day
Now my PS3 is frozen...for the 5th time now! I've gotten into about 2 games so far and the frame rate went from okay to unplayable, like 2 FPS. Anyone else having this issue with quite a lot of LAG on the screen? IT just froze on my 2nd game. Time to reboot.
I have come to the simple conclusion that this is a beta, and shit and problems are bound to happen in betas. At least we should thank them for releasing a beta so that they can spot these messy problems in the first place and fix them before releases. Activision and Call of Duty should learn from this and make public betas. Had they done the same for Black Ops, the game wouldn't be as broken as it was at launch or as right now even.
What about the shotty hit detection and jaggies?
they are both realistic concerns, imo...I'm definitely not trolling...
You do know the beta is only a gig and a half right? Things had to be compressed.
Splitscreen-online? Aww heck yes!
Well of course that's why it's called Beta. Pretty cool tho to have multi in uncharted specially with the new engine used for 3. Landscapes still remind me of Gears tho.
Everybody shouldve seen all the heavy traffic coming. Kickbacks and boosters? Balancing issues? DUH.. Everyone else should have seen this coming too Spawning abuse? I havent delt with that yet
I just DL it but I cant get into a game yet im getting a error. I cant wait to try it, hope thy get it back on soon.
you have the same uc2 movie editor the spawn system is like uc2 still busted team spawn you can spawn on your friends corpse yeah ty or spawn inside a enemy. the perks well just like uc2 situation awareness there op at times but people we love them. also this is there 2nd beta they should have been ready for 2million+ users
more like 70 million with all the people who have Playstation Plus cause of welcome back
No there is 70 million accounts the ps3 has sold 50 ish million so Its not possible there is 70+million accounts per person.
I can't connect to PSN. Looks like the Uncharted 3 beta crashed PSN.
its has gone down a few times already, ND should have rolled out the beta earlier in the day instead of 2PM PST when everyone on the west coast gets off work.
Oh god it Killzone 3 all over again
thought it was just me and my S**t connection psn is acting very weird, keeps signing me out then takes ages to get bk in WTF.
least I could get into a game with SOCOM 4 and Killzone 3. I'm still at the matchmaking screen, and the game hard froze my PS3 on the menu. Hurray.
PS3 is crashing left and right.
