More on PS3 Orange Box problems

The Orange Box could possibly be a huge hit for the PlayStation 3 this holiday season. Featuring Team Fortress 2, Portal, and Half-Life 2: Episode Two, this all in one pack is surely worth the $59.99 that it is set at. However, could technical issues make PS3 owners think twice about purchasing the title, or should they?
Many previews of the title have pointed to the notion that the game experiences many technical issues such as a low framerate. Conversely, there has been a new previous that knocks down the notion that Orange Box on the PS3 is pretty much unplayable. Hilary Goldstein of IGN who recently got the opportunity to preview the game, commented with:
"[The Orange Box] is still a fantastic collection and runs well for the most part, but there are some technical issues that put it behind the 360 version. Technical issues aren't going to be enough to deter anyone who wants to enjoy Orange Box on PS3. Unless you require your games to never dip below 30fps, you should not strike The Orange Box off your PS3 holiday wish list."
PlayStation Universe will continue to cover this title. Until then, keep Orange Box at the top of your list, it will indeed deliver.

I cant really blame EA on this one yeah they give bad ports but really Gabe Newell is a fat f*** and i think its getting to his brain. Honestly you want to bash the playstation, a console that has sold upwards of 200 millions units? If i were him that would mean great money for him, well to bad for you Gabe keep making enemies.

My god, If they were smart they would just throw the project away becuase I can bet that no PS3 owner is going to want that stupid game anyways. Why would a PS3 owner want to buy something from someone that disses the PS3? Why? Its not right!

EA is only publishing the game. They never put there dirty hands on it guys. You really think valve would let them touch there prized ips i dont think so.

psn id: gingo... it was bad enough it is getting made by valve in the first place (i hate them ) but after fobbing it off to EA it just sunk to even lower standards now i wont even contemplate buying this game now

Its to bad that someone who offers such an amazing game is completely blinded by his own ignorance. That being sad it shouldnt be what u think of a system or a company that stops u from bring your product to their consumers...... it should be your legacy to want to bring your product to as many customers as possible to proove your product. So basically gabe doesnt value our opinion as consumers so f**k him lol

Congrats, EA, on making yet another pathetic port for the PS3... You lazy jerks can keep your Maddens and Need for Speeds, I'm going to play something GOOD like Uncharted and Ratchet.

Below 30 frames per second is fine... as long as the 36* version does the same. if it dosent Every PS3 owner with even the remote desire for this game should DEMAND that it perform better because we all know the system is capable of better.

EA sucks. But I thinks its kinda funny that, since this is a ps3 site, that Mr. Jackson left out the portion of the article where the IGN lady said that the ps3 version has slightly superior lighting and textures. Not much I know, but you would think it would atleast have been mentioned.

It’s very pc if you know what i mean, it's a brilliant game on the xbox 360 because i have finished it but i'm not to sure on ps3 has ea have been doing it, my guess it's a complete mess, at least valve did the xbox 360 version and a good job too, but ea not sure?

I was thinking about buying this game awhile back,but with all the technical problems and ps3 disses i wouldn't touch this game with a ten foot pole.

i dont get really. valve has made like two games in 5!!!!! years!!!! and they still cant get it right? is it just me or are these the laziest people on the face of the earth. Insomnac makes game every year and each and every one rocks!

I'm done with VALVe anyways, I bought this for the PC it BLOWS. I hated it, Episode Two was the most enthraling thing inside it. VALVe and their steam network has lost its credability all it does is ruin computers.

Don't you think Valve would issue some patches for that game?

"Your console is waste of time but buy my product" yeah right Gabe ... You think I'm going to purchase your product after you insult my console of choice? You sir are a fool!

I think this is all part of Newell's part to prove himself right and prove that the "PS3 is a waste of everyone's time". Think about it. If he just throws the development to some other team, not even bothering with checking whether it's up to the "quality" associated with Valve, and because of those glitches the game doesn't do well, he just proved himself right.

HelI no, I'm not even thinking about getting this. You don't half *** something and try to get me to put my money in it. Whether the problems are fixed or not, I'm not fcking get this piece of crap.
