Condemned 2 PS3 Suffers From Sound Bug
Sony just recently released a new toolkit designed to assist developers with the PlayStation 3, but some games were already towards the end of the development process when that arrived. Perhaps this is the reason why the PS3 version of Condemned 2: Bloodshot apparently sounds like crap.
Reports from players around the Internet say it's a major sound bug that causes the sound to drop out every 30 seconds or so, which must be immensely annoying. That's something that would really hamper the experience, wouldn't you think? Now, because these reports come from mostly anonymous users, we can't very well say this is happening to everyone, nor can we say for sure if this is Sega's fault. However, if it is indeed a programming glitch or something, it's a problem that needs to be fixed...fast. The original Condemned was fine on the Xbox 360, and we hear the sequel works just fine, too. But the PS3 version of Bloodshot continues to encounter this significant sound issue, so we're hoping a patch arrives soon.
Either that, or perhaps Sega could clarify if these are isolated events and not universal. If any of you readers out there have experienced this game for the PS3, please let us know if you have encountered the problem outlined in this article. We'd get a better idea, and in the long run, so would the developer...if enough people complain, a fix-it patch could be right around the corner.
