I've been noticing, in other topics and the quick look comments, that many people (myself included) are complaining that the PS3 version isn't working (with good reason - it isn't). It seems like the PC and 360 versions are fixed, so PS3 users - post here and let the rest of us know if you can get into a game or not.
PS3 Demo Status
Official statement by Rebellion:
“Unprecedented demand for Aliens vs. Predator following the release of the cross-platform demo yesterday morning brought to light matchmaking issues on the PC platform resulting in players having to wait to join games, or even not find games at all.
We’re pleased to say later in the day the issue was corrected and a small patch to the PC executable next time you launch it from Steam will have you finding and playing games using Quick Match as it was intended.
While this issue did not affect the Xbox 360, we are, with SEGA’s assistance investigating reports of a similar nature on the PlayStation 3 and working flat out on a solution.
The full game features the ability to browse for and create games but for the purposes of simplicity the demo was limited to matchmaking, alongside the ability to set up groups with friends which mitigated yesterday’s issues for many.
We’re really sorry that this issue tainted a day in which we saw many people get hands on with AvP for the first time and we’re hugely gratified by the positive feedback to the game.“
Well, at least they're working on it.
I had heard that if you try joining a game while in a party with friends then it will work sometimes. I haven't tried so I don't know if it's true.
More importantly, Rebellion assigned the fire function to R2 instead of R1, where it belongs. I hope they fix that, or maybe even give us customization, before release.
