    I’ll give them another week to fix the input lag and VOIP, otherwise I’m done with it.
    Im gonna return the game and buy MW3 instead and never play it because i don’t like Justin Bieber games and their community.
    BF3 best online FPS ever but their mistake was to release a unfinished product. (PS3 user)
    BF3 for PS3 new release date: 03-03-12?

  • Steffen

    Wow theyr actualy going to fix the input lag. Maybe there is some light with this game in the end..

    • Blingblaine

      Ya the voip problem is a serious issue that has been swept under the rug and it is unacceptable for a team like dice.

      Voice chat broken after 6 weeks, really appauling.

  • Steffen

              Sony seems to have a new approach for its new consoles. More developer friendly approach, at least for the PS Vita. So, I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

            • Blah MS I bet releases another crappy box that will break on people to pad their sales numbers again.

              Sony’s next PSN system will match and exceed XBL.  I wouldn’t be surprised if it was more like Steam than XBL.

    fuck u dice

    For latest and quick info about BF3 this is the place where i can find 1..

    So, they’re going to fix the VOIP before fixing the lag/input problem.  Great, now everyone can hear me complain about NOT being able to play because of the lag/input problem.  Jesus DICE, get your priorities straight!

    • Grey

      lol 😀 good one!

    • Well I agree, the input lag stuff has to go, but DICE knew of VOIP problems day 1.  The input lag thing wasn’t discovered until a little later and I don’t think DICE really took it seriously until a week or so ago when that video came out.

    @ FahedJ: may i ask if you obtained the statement about the VoIP issue from trusted sources?

    I really would like to believe it, but there are to many reasons not to… Still waiting for an official statement of Dice!!!

  • They better fix the damned input lag in a hurry.  I am getting sick of not being able to make quick minor adjustments to my aim, it totally fucks my BF experience.  I almost feel like putting BFBC2 back in.

    Meanwhile PC has no voip

  • if you’re sick and tired of the broken voice chat in battlefield 3 do something about it!


  • Asd

    I have yet to witness this input lag.
