Bayonetta Updated For PS3, Load Times Improved

Sega has released an update for the PlayStation 3 version of Bayonetta, addressing one of the complaints we had about the port of PlatinumGames action game, frequent and lengthy load times. Those load times are much improved.

The 138MB download brings Bayonetta for the PS3 to version 1.01, offering an option to install the game to the console's hard disk. That 15-minute-long installation procedure will result in approximately 4.5GB worth of disk space being absorbed by Bayonetta game data. It's worth the wait and the extra sandwiches made during that wait.

Load times between chapters are noticeably shorter, but it's the load times elsewhere, when Bayonetta picks up items or the player attempts to skip cut scenes, that make the install worthwhile.

Unfortunately, the update to 1.01 doesn't address some of our other concerns with the PlayStation 3 version, like the weaker frame rate and texture quality.


    Great, now if only my copy of the game would arrive in the mail.

    I'd be interested if the patch came with an extra 30 frames. Until then, no excuse, no buy.

      Unless you have a 360, you're missing out. The load times are the biggest gripe, I haven't noticed any other real issues with the PS3 version.

    sony made the patch

    Just installed - you still need the game to play it - can't just play the game of the hard disc - too bad for the tight a$$es wanting to just hire it from their local Blockbuster store!
