View Full Version : LBPC - How to find someone in your region to avoid lag?

I know that LBP is not region locked but I think there are going to be some lag issues for those of us not in the USA trying to play / create with USA based players, though it might not be as bad for the Europeans as for us in the Asia Pacific. While I hope I'm wrong if it's anything like trying to play with overseas players on other PS3 and Xbox360 titles quite often you end up with a lot of warping etc that frustrates not only me but usually the players OS who I am trying to game with.

May I suggest the admin's look at setting up 3 regional sticky threads one for each of Asia Pacific, The Americas & Europe that are only used for organising play / create sessions. Posts in those threads that don't relate to organising a session should be deleted so as to not make them a de facto regional forum.

I realise there was a thread looking at specific regional forums that was vetoed but it's a major headache currently trying to track down all the Australian LBP fans on here get their PSN ID's and organise a time to play / create with them once the game comes out.

I appreciate that you don't want to fragment the main forums hence my suggestion for just making them sticky threads in the General LBP forum.

I don't think there will be THAT much lag. As I recall from an interview or something, lag won't be an issue. If it is, though, we can work something out... Maybe like what you're suggesting.

Unfortunately, my ISP sucks... Good connection in the late afternoon. :(

Yeah I hope we don't have lag issues, but I do know from playing Rainbow Six Vegas 2 that playing people in Europe it does cause some of a lag for me. But hopefully it is not a problem with LBP
