Hi

 

When playing games online on the PS3 I've noticed some lag. I went from wireless to wired but I still get some lag, although it does appear to be much better.

 

My laptop is usually on and that uses the wi-fi but obviously while I'm gaming I'm not surfing the internet so it's not going to be doing much.

 

I have a good internet connection so can't work out why I sometimes get so much lag. Is there anything I can do about it as it can be really annoying?

 

Thanks.

What's your NAT type on your PS3? When mine went to open it vastly improved my experience. Also what kind of speeds do you have?

I get this a lot, as i play uncharted 2 online multiplayer and it has been annoying me for years, although i upgraded my connection SPEED PLAN which did get rid of most lag my player still is weak compared to overseas players due to the connection type. I am infact talking about an optic fibre connection compared to a normal cable connection which is an actual hardware concern, so the only way to solve the problem is to get optic fibre and get the speeds which matches what the rest of the world is using. We can get slightly better speeds and lag issues but until the actual hardware is addressed(cables that are run underground or wherever) the problem will persist at least for me anyway. My player cant keep up with players from the states and other parts of my country as i have not attained optic fibre cable yet. If my player runs beside my own team mate, i just cant keep up with him, mind you this is not lag its just a weak player due to poor cable. If i am in a gun fight with someone who has an optic fibre connection and we draw our guns at the same time i will always come off second best as 3 or 4 taps with the gun and i die quickly. Its a real pain.

No idea. How do you find out?

Yeah, I have the problem on Uncharted too. Although more on 3 than 2.

 

The annoying thing is it's often clear when other people are lagging and using it to their advantage which affects my game. If I lag I keep losing (I have no contol over it at all), they lag they win.  It's like over half the games are either me lagging or someone else doing it to cheat. Since going to a wired connection it's been a bit better - less lag for me and any lag isn't as bad. Some days are terrible for lagging though.

IMO, when you don't pay for the multiplayer service it's just really laggy. With Xbox360 you have lag from time to time but nothing severe. It's a tradeoff really.

I disagree.

 

It's mainly Uncharted I have the problem on. I might get odd lag on other games but it's on Uncharted that it annoys me. I think it's probably because of so many people playing it all around the world and odd cheaters. For other games it's no worse on PS3 than xbox 360 and it's certainly not good enough on xbox to make me want to pay out for the service. Still, it's not worth paying for the xbox service when I want to play Uncharted.
