Some disturbing news about the PS3 wireless dongle has been appearing on the Internet recently.
1UP is reporting that the dongle is overly susceptible to common household objects, so much so that the game is virtually unplayable if you have any of the following in close proximity to the PS3. What exactly constitutes close proximity is anyone’s guess.
- Large metal objects (wtf?)
- 2.4Ghz wireless phones
- Wi-Fi (this is severe)
- Microwaves (also a common object)
- Cellphones…. seriously didn’t the developers have cellphones?
If you were wondering, the only reason the developers had to use a third party wireless dongle is because the tools to hook into the PS3’s Bluetooth capability have not yet been developed. Bad form Sony…
Luckily for us though is that the PS3 version of Guitar Hero III has been delayed until next year in South Africa so there should be a patch by then…
