I keep reading that people had problems with fallout3, but I never had a problem with either the vanilla or goty editions. The only times it would even slow down was when going in or out of the targetting system. even then it was rare for me but ymmv.
Oblivion seemed to run better on ps3 than xbox. Framerate was better, textures were better, and it loaded less. Again, at least for me.
I couldnt get into vegas, i just couldnt invest in the character, so I dont know how well that ran.
But, skyrim has been a disaster for ps3 users from the start. Patches only worked short term to one degree or another, as soon as your save accumulated another few megs the framerate drops, freezes and whatnot would occur again.
But my main problem with it all was that bethesda KNEW it would run like crap before they shipped. The SAY they THOUGHT they could patch it up post release.
But they actively deceived ps3 users by saying they were giving the ps3 version extra attention so it wouldnt suffer like previous releases. They refused to supply ps3 copies for review, and I also find review sites complicit in this debacle because they all played along, proclaimed it to be GOTY while being aware of the problems on ps3. and none have given this topic the attention that it should have.
If you cant code your game for my console of choice, then dont release it there.
If I really want to play your game, Ill find a way. But dont release it broken, dont handicap reviewers by not letting them review the broken mess before I spend my money on it, dont lie to me and say it runs as well as the other platforms, and most of all dont play down millions of users reactions to the broken mess by saying that its only a small segmant of the platforms users until the weight of the amount of negative feedback makes you tell the truth.
Are the coders subpar in regards to the ps3? Maybe, probably, who know. Lol
I fault the corporate greed that made it exeptable for them to screw ovwr people payinf for a product.
If this were any other industry, any other type of product, and/or type of consumer audience, the broken product that does not work as advertised would be recalled or the offending company would either be sued or slapped by the ftc.
To some degree I find fault with sony as well. With the certification process, I find it hard to believe that sony werent aware of the issues before release. They should have protected their users one way or another, either by not certifying it, or stepping up and supplying bethesda with sony/ibm engineers to help optimize it.
