Exclamation PS3: The Big List of Tech Issues and Bugs that break the game.

Thread Rules: Do not post pc vs ps3 vs 360. If you do you may have your post deleted and maybe banned or suspended and yes I will report you my self. The last post was locked do to console wars replies. This is my thread make your own in off-topic forum site and rage out there.

Please also don't report PC or 360 issues here this is just for PS3 users your welcome to make your own thread.


You made a wonderful game. With the bugs fixed and some end game DLC to keep the game going your going to make a fine edition to my top 5 games in the last 10 years. Lets fix these game breaking issues and get some good end game DLC rolling in.

Before I start if a issue has been patched up or if you have a concern or issue that has happen to you and friends or other people on the forums many time feel free to PM me or post here and I wil try keep this thread updated.


PS3: Server List: If your lucky you will search for a online game and it only pauses like 5-10min if your unlucky it does the same thing but freezes in the 5-10min.

PS3: Crashing: Crashing is random and happens a lot once your server list did load and you join another players server and bang it crashes on load. If your lucky and that went by fine then you end up crashing later on randomly. During a Boss or anything.

PS3: Corrupted Characters: Very rare at this point. More people play the longer their games go the more chance they will get a lag/freeze or the great crash and they will get corrupted characters. It has happen to me once it was just a level 17 character but it was annoying anyways.

PS3: Host low FPS: If you are the host you will get slow downs like crazy. when I say slow downs I mean if I were to guess like 5-10 fps slowdowns when your shooting all you see if flash freeze flash freeze death. It happens since the processing load for the AI i guess ain't being balanced right? Maybe Gearbox is only using 2-3 CPUs?

PS3: Single Player FPS: Not as bad but I also feel like its sort of the same thing with the host part where it slows down like crazy. Not sure if this can be exactly same thing since your local box is controlling the ai.

PS3: Digital Audio: For some reason on the PS3 there is a bug where and I'm no programmer but the audio kicks out like it feels like one the threads process the audio crashes and reboots it. It's not something to die over but very annoying and strange.

PS3: Split Screen: I'm sorry but I don't know what to say. It was bad enough one person lost there character but now you can do 2 at once. This has just the same issues but a lot worse. It feels like GearBox forgot to test this function out. To be fair I'm just letting you know in this post you get the works above but more frequent like crashes fps loss. Not to mention the horrible UI scrolling to see it.

PS3: Friend List: Now I don't know what you did or PSN did wrong here. You did fix it sort of. But I have random crazy people I deleted and removed as my friend that now can see me and I can see them playing and even annoying me by trying join my games.

PS3: Microphone: Now if your using a Bluetooth headset or using a Logitec USB headset we all get cut outs and sometimes where it makes the guy sound like he is going a million miles an hour and the works

PS3: Skills Bug: This bug I think happens on PS3 and 360. This is the issue we have so far. If a players gets kicked during mid save sometimes it messes or changes his save game. The worst thing that has happen is it corrupts the saved game. Best way to stop this is maybe force save and a 5 second pause after it that kick or exit can not take an effect.


The below is just to give you a example of how many people are effected as a PS3 user. All the Consoles have issues but the PS3 does shine on the top.


Here is a Major list of all PS3 Issues as of 6PM EST Oct 22nd 2009:

Sadly I doubt we will ever see a patch.

Take the money and run.

1. frame rate lag offline play
2. Game stopping bug where the robot never talkes to the DR
3. Muzzle flash not showing and when it does it causes lag
4. Skag lag, be it 1 or 10
5. skipping stuttering sound
6. Memory leaks or at leasts that is how the game acts the longer you play the slower it gets
7. Lag when the lady comes on to guide you
8. Lag when items drop from an enemy
9. LAg when shooting into the distance with the sniper rifle, car
10. Mutliplayer issues still even after the server side fix
11. Split screen bug
12. Little robot dude bug where he got stuck then reset himself
13 Too many bugs to list but its a start

This seems to be a growing trend in the industry.

If this kind of bull***t continues, the industry stands to lose its heart - the hardcore gamers.

We shall move on.

I don't think this will be the case. I think they could make a ton more money if they fix the issues and add some great end game DLC.

Why?

Simple!, My friend Rob for example is not really considering buying the game from the bugs he seen. But if GBX fixes them Rob may highly consider playing. Now Jeff down the road see's me playing but notices the lack of content. Well Jeff this is not True. The latest DLC offered some really fun Repeatable content end game making the game more fun and challenging.

And there is 2 more people playing.

In this market with this type of semi mmoish and it's not a MMO by even close it be the farthest thing on earth but just take my advice. Since it has that feeling if they update it and add to it. Well it will spread and more players over time will come and play.

If they offer say DLC 3 months old free or 6 months free they will bring in old players who put the game on the shelves and there like damn this is fun I'm hooked again and bang they buy the next version of the DLC since there having so much fun.

If they do things right there is no issues and way more profitable.

Jesus, it's been three days. They fixed the friends list issues in one day, what possible reason do you have for thinking they won't give you a patch?

No they didn't. All they did was locate a small problem with Gamespy and did a server side minor fix and everyone is giving them praise. IMO it was a small drop in the buck of bug that need to be fixed. This is off topic and if your not here to post your list of bugs then start your own thread.

Back on topic please.

Because it still hard freezes systems on the "create online game" screen, and online is inaccessable to a lot of PS3 players?

Do you even play on a PS3, or are you just in here doing the reverse-trolling/fanboy schtick?

The only problems that I have seen was the friends list problem, then once you tried to enter a game from the game lobby, or even scroll through to look for a match, it took 5-15 minutes to let you select a game. Seems to be working a bit better, but other than that the Microphone is horrible, crazy cutting out and what not.

Other than that, it seems fine to me.
