If you’ve been playing Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine this week you might have noticed some problems with the online multiplayer. While the problems with matchmaking in the PC version of the game have been fixed, PlayStation 3 owners aren’t quite as lucky. Wait times to get into a match on PSN can exceed 35 minutes. While THQ have a patch coming to remedy the problem, the fact that such a substantial bug managed to get past the Relic Entertainment’s quality control is really troubling.

Space Marine‘s co-op campaign won’t be dropping for another three weeks. While it will be coming in the form of free DLC, between that and these bugs, it’s begining to look like THQ shipped an unfinished product. Unfortunately they’re in between a rock and a hard place with the fast-coming holiday season. Pushing the game back would mean increased competition for upcoming titles like next week’s Gears of War 3. Hopefully THQ’s attempts to expedite the patch will be successful. It would be nice to get in a match within a couple of minutes of booting up the console for once.

  1. PS3 versions of multi-platform games seem like an afterthought – it’s a good thing I have both consoles, and always err on the side of the 360 version (see Bayonetta, COD Black Ops, etc).

      Jason,I disagree with your sttnemeat.In No Russian your with the terrorists and you can participate in it I believe. In this you can’t, you are the victim and seeing fellow countrymen being killed. It’s meant to illicit an emotional response for the American civilians.If we swap the Korean soldiers and American civilians around so it’s US soldiers killing Korean civilians there would’ve been huge controversy in the US not because of the killing of civilians but because of the portrayal of US soldiers as civilian killers.VN:R_U [1.9.12_1141](from 0 votes)

    I actually held off on buying this game specifically because THQ made such a mess of Homefront and had similar issues… a great game but a crappy infrastructure. Homefront on the PS3 was near impossible to play with friends because the group function didn’t work and they had similar matchmaking issues (with the added insult of waiting in a game lobby for the numbers to be high enough for a launch, only to be booted from the lobby for idling!)
    I do hope that they get this resolved… but the Homefront intial patch did absolutely nothing to correct these issues. THQ needs better quality control before shoving half assed games out the door. The games themselves are totally ruined by poor infrastructure. They need to either go back to a simple server browser system, or fix their concept of matchmaking.
