Valve Issues Patch for PS3 Version of Orange Box

the orange box

Sometimes things slips under the radar a bit in the world of gaming news. An example of such a situation is the news of Electronic Arts issuing a patch for the PS3 version of The Orange Box. The patch was issued yesterday and if you signed in via PSN yesterday you may have noticed it and you may have not noticed it. Either way, it is there, and here are the gory details for it:

  • Fixed a graphical issue whereby a player would have the explosion effect left on the end of their Rocket Launcher when attempting to Rocket Jump
  • Fixed a memory leak to improve single player stability
  • Fixed an issue whereby the players name would not appear on the Stats comparison screen
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the vote tallies to disappear when you viewed the scoreboard between rounds
  • Fixed an online server issue
  • Fixed an issue that caused a crash when a player that wasn’t in Division 1 entered ‘Your Leaderboards
  • Fixed an issue with players not always being added to the ‘Players Met’ menu on the XMB
  • Fixed a bug where a player viewing a friend without an EA account would have an empty entry in the friend’s Leaderboard
  • Fixed an issue where it was not possible to connect to the EA servers if you had more than 30 friends

What I think he means, Khalid, is that it’s harder to stomach the price if you already bought HL2&Ep1. Sure, you’re getting them at a discount, but you’re still giving Valve money for a game you already own. (And it ends up being -more- expensive if you just buy the new stuff on Steam.) Valve was originally going to offer “The Black Box” with just the new content, but reneged on the idea when they realized that they could squeeze a bit more money from the masses by limiting choice.

I remember getting Team Fortress Classic for free with HL1, and some tweaks+graphics don’t seem worth $30 US. The classes are still the same, even.
