Titan Studios Details Incoming Fat Princess Patch Fix 50°
292w ago - Yesterday Sony acknowledged that a Fat Princess patch fix for the online issues many gamers have been experiencing was in the works.

Today Titan Studios have detailed the update on their blog, to quote:

We've received a flood of emails in the last 36 hours. We're humbled by the incredible outpouring of appreciation and support from the community, and by the number of fans who have invested staggering amounts of time and effort in writing thoughtfully about their experiences and offering suggestions. Many of you are also actively contributing to forums all over the Web.

Ninety-five out of a hundred emails are from gamers loving the game, even though some of them are experiencing varying degrees of networking problems and other bugs. Some of you have have serious troubles and are rightfully frustrated. We're frustrated too, and we're on it. Regardless, we thank you all. Titan loves you back.

Sony Acknowledges Fat Princess Online Issues, Working on Fix

Sony Acknowledges Fat Princess Online Issues, Working on Fix 300°
292w ago - Sony acknowledged that Fat Princess has been having somewhat of a rocky start, complete with lag and random connection issues.

The problem isn't effecting all users, though its been widespread enough to warrant a response from Sony.

To quote: "We are aware that some customers are experiencing connection issues and are working to address this [as soon as possible]," a Sony representative told G4. "If there are lag issues during a game, there will be a snail image in the lower left corner. It is advised that if this snail appears for more than 30 seconds, the player should try another game."

I've personally put a good number of hours into Fat Princess and have had zero issues with the game – which is actually a change from most PlayStation 3 games. I usually have trouble connecting to any matches on the PlayStation 3, period (used to be NAT 3, changed that, but problem has still persisted).
