Actually... I thought Voice Chat on PS3 was a "per app" thing... as in it's the opposite of the *cough*360*cough* where it's part of the OS...

Argh I just wrote a huge response to the Facebook thread and then it wouldn't let me submit it because I wasn't logged in, and then when I logged in and hit back it erased my response because it's all goddamn AJAX. Fuck!!

Must calm my VOIP/Facebook-induced rage.

I hear they're releasing a patch that will reduce the maximum number of players online to one because of bandwidth restrictions. We should probably get another 4P game going before that happens.

But Smog... you already bought it. :error:
The best thing we can keep doing is spamming their facebook, and letting it be known that this is unacceptable. [-(

They suck for apparently not knowing how to code VOIP, but we should still play it! And yeah I need to get my Facebook message back.

I'd be up for a game after I'm done with SOCOM tonight.

Hey, i love your Worm games. I just got the PSN Worms game and online only two people can talk at a time. If you have 3 people one is only able to listen and randomly it changes who can talk. I figure that you guys have already heard this complaint but I would like to know what is going on and if you guys plan to fix the problem.

Oh man everyone on there is complaining about the VOIP and they continue with the BS

Kyle/Ifran:

Originally we did have 4 player voice chat, with no problems from a programmatical POV. Unfortunately it was found in testing that users with little to no bandwidth (due to poor connections, throttling, a low speed connections (512kb etc)) were having their games time out / drop out. Such drop outs could result in sony submission issues that had the potential for the game to be not be given its all clear for release. The problem arises because we dont have much control of the voice chat once its been initiated as its one of things that handled internally by the Playstation 3 operating system. It takes up alot of bandwidth (as does our game at times) and as a result the game sometimes times out or loses a connection. Therefore we were faced with the 3 options of:

1: keep as is and have many lower spec'ed broadband connections drop out mid game ruining it for all players.. Not to mention the potential for sony submission failure.
2: Take out all voice chat..
3: Allow for up to two users to have voice chat enabled - which of course we decided on.

I hope that clears it up a bit.. I know in a perfect world we would could all have 4 player VC (or video screens with webcams etc). With later updates of PS3 SDKs we may be able to revisit the issue with a patch.

Anyhoo, until then enjoy, and im glad you are all liking it so far..

cheers again

I heard that GTA5 is supposed to have 4p VOIP, but that feature is 360 exclusive DLC.


It looks like they may have taken down the discussion topics on their facebook. I posted a message there last week, but looking at their page I can't find the section anymore.

Weird, I used the history on my computer earlier and it said there were no discussions on their page, but just used the link in your post a couple above this one and it works.

DAMNIT, I'm at home for the weekend. I guess my Worms action will be relegated to Open Warfare 2 on the psp.
