let's not take this as they want it.

 

us ps3 players are the screwed again. no working voice chat in an online game is not acceptable.

 

please support this thread on the official feedback site for bf3: http://getsatisfaction.com/battlefield3/topics/voice_chat_issue (you can log in with your battelog id)

 

make pressure on battlelog and twitter. there are already lots of us ps3-players, who are frustrated and tired of not being able to speak with friends ingame.

 

it's also already in the press: http://www.computerandvideogames.com/328019/ps3-battlefield-3-voice-chat-not-working-you-may-be-enti...

 

i just ask you to bump threads and make pressure over battlelog and twitter.

 

i paid almost 70€ for this product and it's not finished after the beta and 2!!! patches

 

no the fix ladder sounds or nerf the sigla lol. but no voip for ps3.... of course.

 

please spread the links and the word.

 

thank you

I removed the ports & put it in DMZ. I'll let you know how it goes. Someone did comment on the recent blog post about Karkand map stuff that they were aware of the problems, & are looking into it. So fingers crossed for a patch before 2012.

there's no solution for the problem trying it by yourself.

 

your router, your hs everythin is fine.

 

i'm concerned, because on twitter i hear often expressions like "we are searching for possible solutions", " we're evaluating the problem", "working on it".... blablabla

 

they never say something specific.

 

it is not acceptable that us ps3 players must live with an unfinished product again.

I found a temporary solution for a couple of friends and I...

 

For the past few days we've been using Skype, the signal is good, we hear each other loud & clear and can even play on different squads to orchestrate stuff with cross-comms.

 

It's not ideal but it works until we have a proper fix.

yeah Crasher, we have been doing the same thing! far from ideal but if i am to continue playing this game until its fixed (which i most certainly am!) this is the only way to handle. But what a bug to have in battlefield. the worrying thing is with absolutely no word on a possible fix is it even possible it cannot be solved on the ps3? Bad form, DICE.

The fact the VOIP is still broken on this game after nearly 2 months of being on sale is utterly appaling and just demonstrates an abysmal incompetency on DICE's part... :(

Was broken for much longer on SOCOM Special Forces.

 

And SOCOM Confrontation was like a lottery (not with the comms do worked almost perfectly*) You never knew what glitches or bugs you would encounter. One were if you checked the score board when you came out of it you could no longer move. Or when you picked the satchel charge up in demolition the green maker never disappeared allowing people to see exactly were you are right across the map.

 

Every now and again the comms did go buggy at the start of the 5th round (1 game is 8 rounds first to 5, swap sides at 4) the comms sometimes showed who ever was speaking on the other team at the time then froze up.

 

And a rare one (though extremely useful) after the swap 1 persons comms appeared fine apart form you could hear everything the enemy team were saying and they had no idea you were hearing everything "Dave I'm at half wall goner run for red room and jump down to the garage"... me sat there thinking oh really I'm at fish market. If that doesn't mean anything to you the it basically means he has to come across me through about 40-50 meters of open ground then a point were an alley to red rooms door is bang inline with the door on fish market. I know exactly were he is, were he's going and probably when he is about to start to move plus I know I don't have to come out I can just wait for the straight shot :D what a bug :lol:

 

Though my favourite SOCOM Bug was on the large version of Crossroads (mentioned above) went up in the tower at the merc spawn to kill the sniper. Its 2v3* at this point. I hear the ops lady saying the mercenaries have the bomb. Oh Crap!

 

This map is huge, the bombs in the middle, he has to plant in our spawn at the exact opposite point to were I am. Not a chance of getting there in time. I find the the sniper pick up his L96 16x zoom scope, my team mate gets killed I saw were his blue diamond was I see the enemy but he goes back down the road lost visual what do I do. There's not much room were I can get an angle on him plus bolt action rifle only time for 1 shot if I miss I'm buggered, lined the cross hairs up under the arch way the last point at which I will be able to see him (10 meters from the bomb plant) switching zoom levels between x6, x10 and x16 to get a veiw of the area I see him bang head shot. I could not believe my luck hitting the bomb carrier with the other merc in sight.

 

Ops lady comes on "the mercenaries have dropped the satchel" Though what happened next was even more of a shock. Ops lady speaks again "We are now in possession of the bomb" *SWEARS loudly in astonishment* I have the bomb! Legged it down the tower to the bomb plant. 30 second timer with the enemy having no chance of getting there. Only saw that once, the bomb teleported from the person who had be killed to the killer. Like I said it was a lottery of which bugs and glitches you would experience and there was a lot of them it could give you, some common some rare.

 

Confrontation is my favourite game on the PS3 possibly even my favourite of all time. On release it was a real mess. And it dragged on for months plagued with bugs on a biblical scale. But credit to Slant Six they got round to fix everything though often the patches to fix the bugs made new ones :lol: or broke something that had previously worked perfectly :Stupid: BF3 has no were near as many problems and all but 2 are really minor things like back ground noise dropping out or reload animations not happening the gun still reloads so chill :)

 

Sorry for the essay got a bit reminiscent :D

 

*just pointing Confrontation is non respawn (like SOCOM should be not like that abomination that they had the nerve to call SOCOM:Special Needs Forces) Was 16v16 at the start. 

 

Anybody fancy playing some Confrontation? Cloudburst get it. You liked Special needs. Confrontation is like that only a trillion billion million times better.

join this thread on battlelog:

 

http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/forum/threadview/2832654347784531238/

 

nearly 1000 posts about this. there are some official responses too.... but hold your breath, they won't please you.

seems like EA/DICE won't acknowledge the problem for pr reasons (the words of a ea official, responding after a BBB complaint.

 

on the official feedback site of bf3, here: http://getsatisfaction.com/battlefield3/topics/voice_chat_issue

you can see how many are "victims".

 

the "movement" on battlelog also contacted sony about this, they say its not a hardware issue for sure.

you can read it all there.....

http://mp1st.com/2012/01/09/battlefield-3-voip-updates-for-ps3-next-month/

 

but we still have no official word on that, this is just a third party site quoting a tweet, wich was deleted some hours afterwards.....
