I agree all games lag but this game's lag comp is too much. Its as if those of us who pay good $$$ to have high speeds and low pings are somehow punished in favor of those who have DSL or are stealing their neighbor's wi-fi. Its not as bad on the PS3 for
some reason. Yes I have both.
log into your router and look under the QoS section. Most of the time there is an upload bandwidth option. Change it from auto to manual. Set your speed for something like 300-500Kbps. XBL requires a highspeed connection; high speed is define as anything
over 200Kbps. Keep in mind this will effect everything on your network when trying to upload.
I wouldnt call it a conspiracy, but sure, I'd say its there to help sales. People are more likely to buy if they know the issues are being dealt with ........ even if not solved.
Lag compensation has been there for years ........... the problem I believe is with all the complaints with host advantage in previous releases.
I think they attempted to deal with that a little more. So people who have always gotten host a lot are just used to being godlike when they did.
Something else to point out ............... I have read some posts from people with bost systems say ps3 is better than xbox, and some say xbox is better than ps3. This leads me to believe that there is more to it than just the lag compensation. I'm
not saying there isnt an issue with it , just that there may be more things at play, but the lag compensation gets all the blame.
