Some thought this would never happen. In fact, even EA said the voice chat problem the PS3 version of Battlefield 3 suffered was caused by PS3 itself, and not their (DICE) coders. Well, turns out DICE really messed up BF3 PS3, but the dev has redeemed itself. It’s true: patch 1.03 actually fixed the VOIP issues! Hooray!
Okay, let’s calm down now. I decided to test out voice chat with some friends throughout yesterday, and everything worked super. No lag, no breakups, no “I can’t hear you”, or “you’re constantly breaking up” replies. The thing worked fluent last night.
Also, it seems as if the patch deployed yesterday was solely for the voice chat fix, as it only weighed 11 MB, contrary to what DICE promised. So the patch to fix lag, and other annoyances will be released at a later date, hopefully sooner rather than later.
But yeah, if you left Battlefield 3 because of voice chat issues, now’s the time to comeback… at least to check it out.
