Will they fix the framerate issues?

Will Telltale fix the framerate issues on the PS3?
I'm really enjoying the game but the constant framerate issues are really annoying and constantly occuring.
Surely this isn't too much to ask? I would enjoy the game much more if it wasn't constantly slowing down :)

    It kills the experience though, when the games framerate drops every 10 seconds during an action scene and you then die.
    I wouldn't have any problems if they said sorry, we realise the problem and we'll patch it but no. They wont patch it because they are a joke of a company. They dont fix anything, never buying another product from them again.

  • What boggles my mind is that not a single person on the TT team must have played the later episodes on the PS3. How small/inexperienced must the team have been to let such a huge compatibility issue slide? This isn't like Skyrim, where the PS3 version slowed down or froze after spending tens of hours in the game. If you even TOUCH JP episode 4, you can clearly see that it's broken.

    In the long run, you (TTG) are going to lose more money the longer you keep this POS on the market than if you just pushed through a patch. In its current state, people will play through your game, be turned off, and definitely not purchase new projects such as The Walking Dead (I'm sure there are many gamers who are interested in both franchises). I desperately want your games to be good, but I'm not going to let my fanboyism affect my wallet like a manipulative girlfriend who never puts out.

  • They did have a schedule to keep though. And they did delay the game once. So It could have been a lot worse. And we talk about patches like all they have to do is hit a button and everything is fixed. We don't know how the TellTale Tool works. For all we know it would take more man hours and money to fix the frame rate to the point where it's just not worth doing. Expecially seeing how the game did not fair well review wise. Not to mention TellTale is very busy with other games now like The Walking Dead.

    I don't expect a patch. But seeing how I already played through and 100 percented each episode I don't really need one.

    Was this on the PS3? I mean, if it was possible, I would have pushed through the lag and played on, but it's not, so I was forced to stop at the beginning of Episode 4. If I had been able to complete the game I paid for, I wouldn't come back and keep b****ing about it.

    Bottom line is, I don't care about how much it costs TTG. It is their responsibility to make sure that the entire experience is available to us. After that, any complaints about story and gameplay mechanics aren't their problem. Unplayability isn't an opinion. It's fact.

    Shockingly, at this point I would rate TTG even lower than EA in terms of respect (that's pretty damn low), and I'll be passing on these opinions until the company honors PS3 purchasers with what they deserved in the first place, regardless of their expectations of a TT game.

    I agree 100%, i wanted this game to be awesome but it does not work! And i certainly wont be buying the Walking Dead game despite the fact that i love the programme. And im sure many other people agree with you.

    All of this!

    Yes, it was the PS3 version. And the game was free so I consider TT games to be a very generious company.

    You mean because you bought PS+? That really doesn't mean anything. The way that works is that a contract is made between TT and Sony, with Sony giving TT a portion of the profits from PS+ sales that are directly related to the Jurassic Park promotion. Sony frequently does promotions like that for PS+ that results in them losing a certain amount of money (I went with the promotion that was a 15 month access for a 12 month price, a difference of supposedly 18 bucks). Do you really think that, if it costs around 40k just to implement a patch, TT would just throw away the profits after spending money to get their entire game digitally distributed? That's not generous, it's bad business, since all of the cash related to interest in their game goes directly to Sony.

    I'm just assuming that this is how you got the game free. Sorry if you got it through some other method. If so, tell me your secret :P

    I would also like to understand why you defend the company against our objections, which are perfectly reasonable. This isn't like a PC version, where most of the time people are to blame for not making sure that they have the specs required to run the game. This is the console, where everyone has the same setup (I have no idea why you aren't getting gamebreaking lag. Must be different models or something). If a game doesn't work on our systems, then the company that produced it is the only one to blame. TTG is blatantly ignoring its responsibility, and this also shows that they have little respect for their own work, which some would argue is worse and partially explains the gradual descending quality of TT games following the wonderful Monkey Island series. Play that on my PS3 and it runs like a dream.

  • @waroftheworlds01 said: Yes, it was the PS3 version. And the game was free so I consider TT games to be a very generious company.

    Well it wasn't free for me, I paid £15 for a broken product that telltale wont fix.

  • I have PS+ but that's not how I got it for free. Well yes and no.

    Ahhh! I shall explain. I preordered the game. The game was delayed. I got a refund and that code for a free game. I kept the refund and used the code for Jurassic Park. Money back, game free. That's the PC version. Then When Jurassic Park came out on the PS+ I downloaded that one for free.

    Edit:

    Don't get me wrong btw. I can understand the furstration that yall must be having. The game was free for me and I already 100% the episodes already. But for those who are having serious game breaking issues on their copy and can't finish the game and payed full price, yeah... i can imagin that's not pleasent. The thing is that I don't see them patching the game because of the low review scores and I'm assuming low sales as well. I would think that they would just cut their losses and put more effort into other projects like The Walking Dead.
