The first beta patch for Uncharted 3 has been rolling out over the last hour. If you were experiencing issues playing the Uncharted 3 beta - the matchmaking server should be going online and working any minute now.
Th1s g4m3 is d00m3d. I c4nt b3leave it suffers fr0m a11 dis l4g.
You have the mind of three men, curly larry and moe.
game's great, other than the amazingly terrible lag in some matches, as well as the freezing. guess that's why they call it a beta.
Sounds like you're still in beta.
still the lagging and freezing are horrible i wana play so badly =/
Still not F'in working, WTF, AHH!!!!!!!
and thank god the matchmaking issue is resolved.
Unfortunately there are a crapload of more issues. Played a few games, but some had so much lag. Had my PS3 freeze 8+ times. Best to wait until tomorrow IMO. Don't risk your PS3. Great game though, I'm loving it
It's a shame the beta is being hunkered down by these problems. I've only played 2 matches so far. One being in the later half of the airstrip map and on the map chateau. It froze soon after, about 2 minutes in I think. I might just wait until tomorrow to play again, in hope ND sort everything out. I wasn't expecting the frame rate to be this inconsistent. Waiting to get back in but I'm getting the ' Error initializing session manager' Whatever that means :/
Airstrip's beginning REALLY blows. It's such a terrible idea, they should scrap it.
im waiting for the troll articles claiming the UC3 beta froze and ylod someones ps3.
"im waiting for the troll articles claiming the UC3 beta froze and ylod someones ps3." already a guy on the ND forums saying the hard resets fuc&ed up his ps3
Alpha what exactly don't you like about Airstrip's intro?
Now if they could only get it to stop freezing.
matchmaking is ok, but freezes are still there :/
The game is awesome but my PS3 keeps freezing :( EDIT: Froze again. fvck this shit I'll just wait till tomorrow
Twitter from ND: ''framerate + system freezes: we're looking into this right now it's not consistent or everyone so it's taking a bit of time to track down'' Is going to be fixed soon.
@alf nice find 1/15 issues being worked on
So far beta has been fun. Though UC3 might have a tiny case of over-hyped. I know it's just beta but I thought it would be leaps and bounds above UC2. UC3 is still fun, don't get me wrong.
no one can overhype something more than ur own expectations so if its not what YOU thought it was goin to be, then get mad at urself not at the notion that ppl overhyped it
played about 5-6 games and i haven't finished 1 because its freezing during every match!
Same thing here. I get into games pretty quick, but not to long into the match, the ps3 freezes.
@ MrSancho1 No stealth trolling why do some trolls think they're so stealthy?
Besides the game looking like a ratchet and clank,system freezes,in game f ups like clock still running or after you die you cant spawn again.The game is actually a breath of fresh air.
this has been BAD for me i know its a Beta but still, It took about 2.5 hrs to download then i cant even play due to lag then my ps3 freeze up after not even a minuite of play. I give up and will HOPEFULLY play all day 2morrow!!
the game freezes all the time, i tried go on option menu trying to fix sensitivity mut it froze...
hopefully lots of those issues will get fixed till weekend so i could try beta without many problems^^
I got the beta from the Hong Kong PSN store, It's in english &, I've experienced no freezes at all & I've been playing for a good 5-6 hours. It's working fine Maybe it's only the US beta that's experiencing freezing issues.
Thx dude. I'm downloading the European Beta now, hoping it's better.
My first game was lagging really bad, REALLY BAD. Then it froze my ps3. Went into the beta again and the error message came up, waited around till it was working again and the second game I had...well for the first minute it was perfect...I died and my ps3 froze again. Ill wait till tomorrow to try it out again now...This sucks balls :'(
I can get in a game but it lags and freezes lol thats what a beta is for haha. I glitched within 8 seconds of my first game which was all lag and the second game didnt lag but still froze. Even with these issues because of the demand its still amazing.
lol mayb this is why it's called a *BETA*, you guys act like you paid for the full product already
Yh its just a Beta but we should atleast be able to test it and not have it break our consols!
I am glad the lag was a known issue and not just me. I played 5 matches all with lag. It looked like I got about 5 kills but it looks like I missed them all. Also I was dead and a few seconds later I heard the bullets. It is a beta after all and these issues are expected in the beginning. I can't wait to play it in the morning if it is fixed. I can imagine what it must be like at ND right now. edit: Some people must be lucky with no lag as I seen a person at level 8 already.
all they need to do is fixing the freez / lag and lobby , then i'll happy of what it is , i like their new ideas , i dunno why people hate the movement , it's the same as uncharted 2 but with running ... one more thing , why sequels always feel like they get biiger , look at motor storm / uncharted 3 and other games i don't remember , they look bigger , i mean the cars or the players , they look bigger ... going to sleep , i hope they fix it after i wake up ...
I actually feel that uncharted 2 runs/moves a lot quicker ...that's the reason I'm not digging this so far..it feels so slow ....and the AIMING !!!!! Yea I get it its a beta but UNCHARTED 2'S BETA was nothing like it..I for one thought it was addicting and fun..I can't say the same this time around...they better fix it or else it looks like ill be just playing Uncharted's 3 story mode and jump back in to among thieves multiplayer.
Remember this word "Beta"
Remember this word "Playable".
Damn why such a rough start? It's not like uc2 didn't have online.
i didnt notice any lag while i was playing. at first i couldnt get into any games though lol. was pretty fun, i liked the co op against the ai, was really fun ended up adding two others to my friends list and we stomped through a few games :) good fun
Why is everyone getting so bent outta shape? its a beta..
Everyone keeps bringing up "Its a beta!!!!". I don't remember the Uncharted 2 public beta having anywhere near this many issues. I am hoping that it all works out though.
because uncharted 2 beta wasn't open at first , alots of people are playing uncharted 3 beta , it's open to everyone now ...
I don't remember Uncharted 2 beta had this problem........
It's a Beta so this is expected. Just played a game and everybody that died could not respawn. They just froze in their death... LOL.. and you could not pick up weapons... It will be resolved though.
it's because of the lag , they all lag so they get stuck ... the only problems are freez and lag , if they kust fix them >.< .. now im going to sleep , good night
I had no problems with getting online or playing my big problem regardless of the beta is that drakes 2 MP was more smoother in character movements and the graphics aren't that different look pretty much like the second one.The maps where really boring and I did feel like chateau was like the map from the dlc in drakes 2 same layout ect.But I only buy drakes for it's amazing SP because there's nothing like it at all.all in all can't wait for the release date on drakes3.
this game is riding the hype train, how dare you downplay its pwn sauce.
Hopefully early 2morrow morning I'll find a match with no lag. I just joined 2 games with so much lag. I'm gonna say it was about 10 frames per second.
I stopped a while ago (after second freeze) Will be better tomorrow, Very glad naughty dog are doing a beta this big, Not many dev's do it but they know they have a solid product... Hopefully this means a solid product on release..... Love the new shooting mechanic BTW Bullets are faster and it felt more responsive than U2 in the one game I played... (BTW I play max sensitivity on all games and most don't go high enough, I know what I'm talking about when I comment on controls)
Wow this beta has become unplayable =( I played for about 4 hours in the morning (as I downloaded it off the HK PSN store) and I didnt have a single disconnect or any lag, but now since the beta has hit all regions I cant get a good game going, every one has a ridculous amount of lag like playing it at 5 fps then eventually freezes the PS3 edit: Finally got into a a decent game, took about 7 tries
It's a beta for a reason people, not a demo. Be happy we're experiencing problems and reporting them to ND. Imagine if there was no beta ,day 1 UC3 Multiplayer would be a disaster.
Anyone else getting terrible frame-rates followed by freezes every time?
Yes, ND are working on a fix now.
The controller vibration is way too insane and the coop mode is much harder compared to U2, you get incapacitated way too fast and enemies take much more bullets to kill. Coop mode seems to have the most problems for me, i can't even rank up. There are also instances where you cant even pick up weapons and enemies stop appearing. My first coop match it bugged out, i could no longer pick up weapons, enemies stopped appearing and when i threw a grenade it didn't explode it just kept beeping lol. I'm glad they decided to do a beta lol.
i havent got into a game yet, it keeps finding players and then once the countdown get to 1 it frezes on me and then starts the matchmaking again, also have had the message that i have been kicked for killing team mates even though i havnt played a single game yet.
The game is working right at the moment for me. I must say I'm feeling this allot more than 2, and I loved 2.
