Me and 2 friends are getting very consistent hard freezes. Anyone else? (360 version)
Around 1 console crash per hour.
Same here. I'm on PS3 and about every hour and a half, the game will start lagging to the point of doors opening, but spitting me back out, stopping me from progressing. All I do is quit to the main menu(Which takes a whole two seconds) and then continue again. So far it's worked perfectly.
Next time, get the game on a console. You should know by now that PCs are plagued with these sorts of issu...
When my PS3 was hard locking on me during MvC3, it was on death's doorstep. But if all your buddies are having an issue? And it looks like others here are having the same issue? That's some quality assurance testin'.
Some 360 users think it's related to partychat, which would suck.
You're free to call me a jerk but I strongly, firmly believe the reason for this not being spotted until now is because of EA's shitty QA departments in far away countries and how badly they're being run, I am like 90% sure, because they will pick up and report every little texture error and geometry miss they find but rarely will they find something like this, an exploit or a glitch, because they get paid per report..
i played most of the night tonight including when i got into the last game of the TNT. a lot of fun. but then hard freeze in the menu, which was strange, but i thought nothing of it. its crashed twice since then tonight.
been having fun with the game so i hope this isn't too consistent of a thing.
just had a crash when activating a elevator in the slum area of the game, I was also having lots of issues with iron brigade the other day
I reloaded the button worked the i died when back to before it'd pressed the elevator button and it hard locked the 360 on my fourth elevator attempt now ...
I should say im playing on a x360 slim with the game installed to HDD
The freezing issue in this game is ridiculous. I don't even think New Vegas pre-patch locked up on me as often as this game does. Just in the last 45 minutes, locked up on the final boss, locked up loading into a co-op match, and locked up quitting a co-op match. Froze on me two or three times yesterday, as well. It's incredibly frustrating. I don't know if I'll keep playing until they patch this.
i've only played the story mode and i'm yet to finish it, the only problem i had was when i left the game running (no pause) in the middle of a mission, when i came back my PS3 was working frame by frame, not completely frozen but unusable.
It needs a patch for the lockups. Staying out of party chat helps lessen the frequency, but it freezes regardless. I love the co-op gameplay and all the upgrade options/choices; just don't know if anyone will be around to play with when they eventually fix it.
EA claims 'the developer has been made aware of the problem', so a patch should be in the works. Hopefully real soon.
I just got my first hard lock after an hour straight of gameplay. Not impressed (on chapter 7) so I think I'm just going to eject it and trade it in at Blockbuster for SSX on Tuesday. I think this may be the first time I have ever disagreed with Jeff.
I have a 2 year old heavily used 360 and I played Syndicate through in one solid sitting, and then played a bunch of co-op the following days. No crashes, no stutters, no nothing. Are you guys rocking PS3s? Because I'm told that port isn't stellar.
Have a 360 S that is relatively new and the game has locked up on me at least 4 times and my friend has also had the same problem. It's only been happening in the Co-op as well. Didn't have any issues with the campaign.
From the looks of things it seems to be pretty common so hopefully there's a patch in the works.
Yeah I know this is old, but I just picked up Syndicate and I'm really disappointed by the frequent locking up. It's locked up on me at least 3 times on 360. I'm playing single player on hard on an Elite and I'm not party chatting. No other game has froze on me before.
On the plus side I'm only a few levels away from beating the game but this is making me not as excited to try the co-op.
