    Playstation Laggier than Xbox?

    Post by IV_Mark_VI on Fri Sep 14, 2012 12:40 pm

    Hey Guys,

    Played two nights on the Playstation and seems like lag is much worse there. The lag stabs were horrendous. Does anyone else have this issue, or notice a significant difference?

    I've never played on Xbox so i can't comment on this.

    There's a lot less lag on the PC though.

    From what I've gathered, it depends on area.

    Xbox lags more in BTown and PS3 lags more in the Burg, and so on and so on.

    PC is by far the best in this regard, however.

    On Xbox, I don't think I encountered a Japanese/Chinese player, but I see them all the time on PS3. I wonder if it's how playstation setup their network.

    Lags more per area? How does that work? Are you talking Framerates here or network lag?

    Thats likely distance, Japan is a long way from the americas and europe and that plays a big part in lag.

    The 360 has only sold 1.5 million units in japan, so japanese players are going to be less common on it.

    To put that in perspective, in america during march, april, and may the xbox sold a million units.

    Yeah when you're playing on XBL you have higher probability to encounter an american player. And I think the network stability or whatever on XBL might be better than PSN. On PSN you can encounter a japanese player as well as europeans with a higher chance that are super far from you and can lag due to distance.

    Europeans on XBL I didn't lag much with.

    Could test with someone that has both systems

    I only (regularly) get bad lag with europeans. (lives in washington)

    What general area do you live in? (the state/country in europe will do)

    Central Canada. Lag seems much better on XBox, but as others have said, Xbox is more popular in Canada.

    However, a number of my friends are European, and I coop/spar with them regularly without issue (UK). There is a lot of cables laid along the seafloor between Europe and the Americas I know; I don't think the same is for America/Asia but I'd have to double check

    Ugh I can't even count the times kellog's, Murakumo, and the gravelord sword has hit me from ten feet away. I never had these issues on xbox. Furthermore the rate of teleporting backstabs is greater, but you sacrifice population on xbox. On xbox it was a 45 minute wait every time when I was a dm and I wasn't sure if the failed to invade message was going to occur. It was frustrating to get summoned too. I would often take naps in between getting summoned for the gargoyles. On PS3 I do not have this issue though I do get more failed to create sessions and more lag. It has been widely agreed that the PS3 has a less stable network as well.

    Don't know then, I suspected proximity but centeral canada isn't close to anywhere.

    The worst lag I get (psn) is the odd guy whos feet don't move when they do, (so I'm seeing them 3 or 4 steps behind where they are) and thats with the people who are really far away (like germany far) or people with crappy connections.

    Yeah, I was backstabbed a number of times by someone on PS3 on my way to the gaping dragon. Really bad lag. Looked like I had counter BSed him, and was behind him, and then BAM! I was backstabbed. I sat there and tried to envision what my opponent saw, and couldn't.

    Probably going to need a lot of practice to counter act the additional lag. Was really annoying as well.

    keep in mind that higher population=more pricks. he could have been lag switching.

    Still, dealing with lag at its varying levels of suck can win a fight before it even starts. Rather than get annoyed, I think of it as a test. Thats me though.

    Good luck, in any case. I'm sure you'll be dropping fishers like flies in no time.

    I have nothing to compare it to, but yes the lagstabs on the PS3 are insane in their own right. My favorite was probably getting backstabbed by someone who was in a different room while I was waiting for them to come through the door to mine. Even the animation had me just freeze and then fall down and die all by myself in an empty room. It was like I'd been involuntarily unplugged from the Matrix.

    He wasn't lag switching, he moved at a constant pace.

    If this is how things are... man. Going to have to play on the XBox for my PvP needs. Thankfully, this is coop.

    I haven't had any lag close to that befowler. No wonder Scythes are even better on the PS3; Spray and Pray! (or the fantasy equivalent; just sweep in their general direction and hope to hit them)

    Xbox has a more stable network , hopefully that's why they charge us to play on live.

    Ive played with several Asian players in Dark Souls and the latency was not bad at all. On the contrary I always experience horrible lag while playing with or against people who live in Oceania.

    Ive also never experienced these ''teleport'' lagstabs a lot of people are always talking about , save for 1 actual lagswitcher in over 1500 hours of total playtime.

    The lagswitcher was a modder but he was not invincible so he had to run of and heal all the time., it was a very weird experience.

    Yeah it's probably because on XBOX you're almost always playing a local redneck American, whereas with PS3 you could be playing with anyone in the world(since it's obviously superior, and they know it).

    I've heard that Xbox shares the same servers as PC. To the extent that this is true, I think the PC/Xbox version offers the best online experience. I've had the Ps3 version since its release and didn't realize just how awful the lag was until I played the PC version. I think the gameplay, as far as lag is concerned, is more crisp and not as laggy as the Ps3 version. If only the rate of invasions were the same as Ps3, I would abandon the console altogether.
