How are they allowed to sell games that don't have functioning multiplayer ?

7 replies 226 views Edited Jul 28, 2013

I bought kof XIII from psn and the online play doesn't even work ? you just sit there for hours on end trying to find a match ? and it's game breakingly laggy and unplayable when you do ?

 

I want my money back it's being sold as functioning multiplayer when it isn't ? this has made me decide not to buy any more games for my ps3 and just use it for the psn+ games.

 

I feel totally ripped off.

The multiplayer is absolutely functioning. There's just no one playing it. Take that issue up with the developer or what remains of the game's community. It's a 2-3 year-old game, I'm not sure what you expected.

There are people online it's just the matchmaking system which isn't functioning as it should.

Lesson learned though never buying a a game ever again for ps3, it has no european playerbase at all the only people on psn appear to be mexicans on dial up.I feel so ripped off just thrown £12 in the toilet kof xIII should be like £3 on psn it's that bad.

To be fair I believe that game has single player, which is why it is likely still up on PSN for purchase. I doubt the matchmaking is broken..its more likely that just no one is playing it. (even if there were a few people online trying to play..what would there be like 3 people?)

 

I mean honestly..how many people did you think would be playing a so-so game 2 or 3 years after it was released?

this is common with alot of multiplayer games, people eventually get tired of playing the game and move on to something else especially if the game has bad netcode from the start.. and the servers ultimatly suffer fo it because companies no longer feel it important to keep them running

Such an underrated fighter but the game had a bad netcode from the start.  I remember it took way less than a month after the release in 2011 for the online community to die out.  A lot of fighting game players just went back to other fighters like Street Fighter and Marvel.

 

You're better off going to dreamcancel.com or srk to try and find active players online at this point.

Try and see if you can find any other European gamers to play it with.
