I bought the season pass on the PSN way back when Episode 1 came out. I played Ep. 1 right away, but have waited until now to jump back into the game and play the remaining chapters.
When I played through Episode 1, I recall having some noticeable stuttering and framerate drops during conversations or cutscenes. It didn't bother me enough to look into fixing it since I finished the episode in a couple of sittings, and figured maybe it would be patched or otherwise fixed with the subsequent chapters.
But last night, playing Episode 2, the stuttering and framerate issues were still there, and significantly worse than I remember in the first chapter. If I wasn't actually in control of Lee, walking around, the graphics and dialogue would skip every 5-10 seconds, sometimes even resulting in the subtitles not matching up with the dialogue, or snippets of dialogue being replayed for a split second at the end of a character's lines.
I searched around other boards a bit, and saw some people posting the same problem elsewhere, but couldn't find a definitive answer or solution. My PS3 is just under a year old, and the hard drive is nowhere near full. I don't even use the console very often, as most of my gaming lately has been on my PC.
Anyone have any idea if this can be fixed somehow, or if a lot of other people are experiencing the same issue?
