Battlefield 3 PS3 Voice Over IP Issues Are Being Worked On Now

DICE has confirmed that a fix is incoming for the PS3 version of Battlefield 3 which suffers with some game-breaking Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) problems.

The malfunction was first pinned as a hardware problem, meaning the PS3 itself has built-in discrepancies that prevents DICE from issuing an unending fix, however the firm’s said it’ll do it’s best to find a resolution.

We’ve tried to explain the problem in detail concerning PS3, especially its voice chat misgivings, but it’s good to know DICE is hard at work on a fix.

“There are colleagues working on fixing the voip on PS3 right now, it’s high priority,” said TomasDanko VO Producer at DICE Audio via twitter.

Patience, my friends.

Thanks, MP1st.

    pretty sad when such a big problem is still here 2 months after launch!
    i mean dident they pick this up in the beta?
    why has it taken them so long!
    ok its partly a hardware issue, but this is the first patch they have received to try fix it!
    i mean if you break you arm and am gushing blood everywhere, do you try and get something tight around it to stop the bleeding and a splint to keep it straight?
    or do you just say ah shell be fine till we get to the hospital?

    Battlefield 3 was rushed out to compete with COD. There’s no doubt about it… The recent patch notes confirmed this very thing.

    everything gets rushed out, the days where people put pride into there work and made sure it was perfect till it was out are gone!

    fuck you and “patience my friends”. i paid good for that game and it doesnt work!!.

  • rpatricky

    @driftkingireland – works well enough for me to be able to wait for the patch. Honestly, the only time I experience the VOIP issues is in the after match lobby. Once in the game, things are all good. The crappy thing is it has to go through a week, or more, of Sony certification once submitted.

  • driftkingireland

    well thats great for you patricky but it never works for me or any of my friends who all paid good money for the game too.why should i have to wait 2 months to hear my friends in the game?
    they didnt tell me that when they were releasing it!. the game froze constantly on me untill i had to buy another console and another copy of the friggen game too so im a little lacking in sympathy for a corporation that makes millions of dollars selling games that dont work.

  • rpatricky

    You shouldn’t have to. I too am tired of receiving incomplete games. Black Ops was the biggest POS when I got it.
    I am tired of the Publishers pushing the Developers to release buggy games.

    I’m with Drift…If I paid for a 60 dollar game with 35 real dollars and 25 Monopoly dollars, Dice…Sony…and any other normal corporation would raise Hell about it and I would be arrested for a crime. Bad management, bad planning, incompetent programing, obsolete hardware, bugged and glitching software, no real saturation testing, and finally, BF3 caters to the BO/MW3 crowd to some degree. Dice-Sony, you can’t please all the people all the time, but to can keep the loyal fans of Battlefield/Bad Company/MW2/MW3/BO/SOCOM etc., etc. etc. happy by making IMPROVMENTS to these games instead of creating DRAWBACKS!
    My ass is serevly chapped by all of this…word to the wise….FIX IT NOW!

  • CobraBlueFour

    …and another thing…typos happen when I’m angry. Go figure…

  • CobraBlueFour

    …and finally…this is what it sounds like to play BF3 and attempt to communicate with fellow players…see if you can figure this out: This is what BF3 sounds like!

    I’m so _ ick of __ ese _ od Damne_ voi__ _ ver prob___lems on _F3 I _eel like _oing ou_ and bu__ng an X_ox and __asting my P_3 and my _ice game collec____ with my .4_ _agnum revol___.
