UPDATE: The patch is now live(!!!!!) for all PS3 players, and will be prompted when a player first plays Battlefield 3 when connected to the internet. Again, DICE stresses that you make sure that your headset is set up properly before playing, to avoid reporting problems when its all your fault...
Yeah. You heard it...
The long-awaited patch for the PS3, bringing a fix to the VOIP issues that have been prevelant since release, is slated for a 6th February release, no doubt pending approval by Sony. The patch, which Battlefield Blog claims to be around the 20MB mark, will be mandatory (i.e. you have to download it to play MP), and will be prompted for download once a player launches the game for the first time after release.
The blog post also stresses that players check their mic installation, to stop confusion about whether the patch has actually fxed the issues, under the Settings heading on the XMB.
In other news, the Battlefield Blog website has been revamped, updating the look to match the BF3-style across the Battlefield webspace, and has a host of new features to make it slicker and easier to use.
That's all for now. PS3 players, comment on how much PTFO-ing you're gonna be encouraging over the mic in the comments, and get the mics ready...
