Next BF3 patch for PS3?s input lag and VoIP issues

Next BF3 patch for PS3?s input lag and VoIP issues

Battlefield 3 is without a doubt the best competition to Modern Warfare 3 yet, and while the latter game continues to be the favorite among console FPS gamers, BF3 has shown to be the better game, according to a growing number of players moving from MW3.

The game is not without problems and it seems that PS3 owners are suffering the most, if blog chatter is anything to go by. DICE is working on the next BF3 patch for PS3 and Xbox 360, although there has been no confirmation about a fix for input lag and VoIP issues PS3 players are experiencing.

Development teams will always be on the lookout for new bugs and issues, so it’s good to keep giving feedback, in fact at the time of writing we see the Xbox 360 servers showing low ping and joining problems, which the official Twitter account for Battlefield responded within minutes, saying “We are aware of this and we are working on fixing it ASAP”. The same account also confirmed problems with PS3?s VoIP and that they’re looking for the “root cause”.

Most issues are being fixed with each update, and we’re likely to see fixes for the spawning without weapons that seems to affect the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, although the real frustration comes with problems that don’t get fixed after an update. With this in-mind, we’ve seen some PS3 users claiming they would trade in the BF3 if they cannot talk with their friends soon, and only ask for DICE to “hurry” with a fix for that particular issue.

Some people might say “be patient”, although the growing number of PS3 users feeling the game “is a joke” and threatening to “move to another platform” only shows the frustration these issues are causing. In most cases the gamer will just cool off and stick by DICE, although we wonder if everyone will feel this way if the issues are not fixed soon?

Do you feel the current batch of games like MW3 and BF3 are rushed into production, or is it inevitable that all FPS games will experience this level of problems after release?
