Rumor: Patch Coming For Orange Box PS3?
While the PS3 version of The Orange Box didn't turn out as bad as initially anticipated, it's still inferior to the PC and Xbox 360 versions due to a serious number of bugs. Several upset owners of the PS3 version have posted their negative feedback on Valve's forums, which has now incited a response from a Valve employee.
"I hope that we will be able to correct any major issues in the future," was the reply, which could point towards the possibility of a patch. We're still awaiting that patch from Ubisoft that would've corrected the numerous freezing issues we encountered in Assassin's Creed, so let's hope Valve works a bit faster. Then again, maybe he's just referring to a future Half-Life series installment that'll be better on the PS3, and not a patch for The Orange Box. We really don't know as he didn't go into specifics, but we'll just hope for the best.
And remember, part of the blame definitely falls in EA's lap as well; they took over the reigns from Valve for the PS3 version of the game. You may recall that EA had serious problems with the PlayStation 3 hardware in 2007 ('cough' Madden 'cough'), so it's no real surprise to see a screwy PS3 version of Valve/EA's The Orange Box. Oh well...Killzone 2 should make PS3 owners happy.
