Original Post 1/1/08 Morning: Just when I do my impressions we get a rumor about a patch for The Orange Box. Let's hope this baby comes to us.
Like I said in my impressions, the PLAYSTATION 3 version of The Orange Box comes in last place compared to it's PC & Xbox 360 brothers due to bugs, left out features, and such.
One upset gamer wrote a complaint on the official Steam User Forums. Soon after he posted this, a Valve employee responded to his complaints saying the below.
"I am sorry that you are unsatisfied with your game. I hope that we will be able to correct any major issues in the future.Now, could this mean that an update is on the horizon? It could be intepreted in many ways.
Thank you for your support and Happy New Years."
Thing is, this is Valves fault for letting EA London develop the PLAYSTATION 3 version in the first place, knowing that they do bad ports. It's still Valve's game, and they probably want to keep the quality of the series alive. We'll have more on this "update" as it comes.
Update 1/2/08 Morning: In a thread about surround sound support for the PLAYSTATION 3 version of The Orange Box, Jay Stelly, a Valve employee responded mentioning a patch.
"The PS3 version has full surround sound but only over an HDMI connection.It's highly likely that this update will contain more than just help for sound.
We're working on getting the optical cable support into an update. I'll post when I have details."
Update 1/2/08 Evening: BurtonJ, a Valve employee started a thread asking users to state the problems in the PLAYSTATION 3 version of The Orange Box. A patch is definitely on it's way.
