    So, How Goes The PS3 Investigation?

    So far, it has been 3 months when you guys last launched the thread of the Investigation, l walked a mile in the ps3's platform when l dusted off my old ps3, downloaded defiance and it has been a pain to even level up as even going in a major arkfall is a 95% percent chance l will be disconnected and l know for sure l have good internet, so... Has there been any progress on the major server issue? Just a Genuine Question.

    The issues that were caused by the hardware were fixed with the server move to a new data center. With that said there will be no other major fixes performed to PS3.
    PlayStation 3 is no way to be compared with gaming hardware these days. It was a goodie back then 15 years ago but now it’s just like a blue ray player that can still run games on its 256 MB RAM.
    Therefore, such problems like high latency and disconnections will occur from time to time as you’re not playing on a high-end gaming hardware. Also, it goes closely with the state of your console. If you have wireless internet, have never performed a maintenance, checked on cooling system of your console and low disk space then your console might not be giving its full potential.
    Another issue is that PlayStation 3 is not meant for hacking. So, if something goes against the gameplay it’s not healthy for the console. While there is no issue with the servers, we have spotted an increased interest in glitch and bug abuse recently. While some think it’s cool to benefit out of glitching the effect stays in server’s cache and basically being kept reserved there for a whole day. The more people do that the more resources game takes and while game’s server can handle it your console specs cannot take it and makes it impossible to play both for glitchers and fair players and makes you disconnect or causes high latency for those who’s who used wired internet and has the console in a perfect condition.

    LOL

    So it's the players fault the game runs like crap.

    And it's outdated hardware (not gamingo's fault) even though it used to run the exact same game perfectly fine.

    Gaslighting at it's finest...

    Yall will say anything to deflect blame from yourselves

    After your "server move" the problems only got worse...

    This made me LOL....we have been submitting mountains of evidence against glitchers but nothing gets done about them. We knew all along that glitching messes with game stability that's why we want these cheaters outta here!!! Why should I lose time on the game because people HAVE to go 45/0 in PvP? Get them off the game already!

    l have wired ethernet so l should not be disconnecting so easily, if these glitches have been running rampant and causing server issues why haven't you're higher ups patched it? And also, l had to factory reset my PS3 because of account issues. Meanwhile while l was playing defiance on PC l get crisp connection, no disconnects, while in PS3 its pure luck whether l even connect at all! If it was on hardware side of things, l don't think none of us should be even theoretically be logging in the game in the first place. It is so frequent that l wonder how PS3 players are even able to progress at all.

    Recently? That's cute.
    Defiance 2050 = 2018's worst cash grab. 100% fact.

    Imagine thinking a recycled event is more important than server performance in 2021.

    Even though I'm not on PS3 if they've noticed people glitching and hacking then why the hell don't they just ban those people permanently, even if it means putting an IP ban on them.

    Because after 7 years of Defiance, if you're still here, then it's not that big of a problem. Right?

    PS3 Hardware problem. Sounds like a non-techie conveying the response a 'dev' gave them. hahaha
