Orange Box Worse on PS3.

While the delayed Fatal Inertia for the PS3 will benefit from the delay, it doesn’t look like the delay will help the PS3 port of The Orange Box any:

After spending a significant amount of time with a near final version of the PS3 game, it’s apparent that this version suffers from a number of technical flaws, which at best merely hinder game play and at worst make the experience downright unplayable. Framerate is a consistent issue throughout the Half-Life series of games included in The Orange Box. One moment you’ll be cruising through the game at 30 frames per second and the next you’ll be enjoying a slideshow of series protagonist Gordon Freeman cruising down the river. However, Portal suffers from no such technical hiccups and is on its way to being a pitch-perfect port of the spatial reasoning exercise. Due to a server connection issue, we were unable to get any time with Team Fortress 2.

Solution? Don’t buy the game. I was really looking forward to Team Fortress 2, but if it has the same issues that Half-Life has, I’m not buying.
