Many PS3 owners that bought Fat Princess love the game but have been complaining about the problems connecting to an online game. Titan Studios seems to have found the “specific problem” and insists that they are working on it right now.
“Players are sometimes experiencing significant lag in some games. Thanks to your feedback, we’ve identified a specific problem and already have a fix in testing. The matchmaking system will randomly pick potential servers bases on a number of criteria. As implemented, the results that are returned are fit in some regards, but sometimes have a high ping for your location,” said the studio on its blog.
“We have implemented a number of fixes for previously identified problems, focusing most of our efforts on connection failures. We have already tested this patch on our own client machines, and performance appears to be dramatically improved. We are working with Sony now to get the patch into the Sony testing process as soon as possible.”
Fat Princess is already available to download, but you may want to wait until the game is patched to play online.
