Another Bad PS3 Port, EA or Valve’s Fault?

by PacoDG

Gamespy has posted up a preview of The Orange Box that is set to be released on PS3 in just a couple of weeks. Yes, all you 360 and PC owners have no only known the cake is a lie, but are past it (okay, I still am in love with the “Still Alive” song). However, I know there are you out there who have the big black box and have been patiently waiting to see what EA has done with Valve’s beautifully packaged game set, and I honestly hate to be the bringer of bad news, but problems with it are on the horizon.

Framerate drops are noticed in Portal and seem to be frequent in Episode 2 of Half Life 2. As far as Team Fortress 2 is concerned with lag issue that were found within the 360 is yet to be seen, as the servers EA will be hosting are not up yet. No rumble is to be found, however that is something I think they could fix with a patch, the framerate issues though, I am not sure about that.

Despite the issues, Gamespy still claims that the game is worth the wait as is not unplayable, but after reading their preview, I would strongly suggest either renting the title, or even going by our local PS3 aficionado Tommy Tseng who recently said, “The Orange Box, who plays that on the PS3 anyway.” I know I won’t be, when Half Life 2 was able to run on the Xbox 1 with the same Source engine, I would hope that the PS3 could handle it, but as my title asks, is this Valve, or EA’s fault? At the moment, my bet is on Valve for letting EA touch their game.
