Killzone 3 on a 3G network?

4 replies 297 views Edited Oct 16, 2011

Recently ordered KZ3 and it'll be here Wednesday. But I forgot to factor in the fact that I use Sprint 3G for internet. On MW3 and Black Ops, it really kills the experience. I get two maybe three 3 bars. But the Call of duty games do no use dedicated servers, so there is no definite nearby connection for me, it's just 100% random. Does KZ3 use dedicated? Or would 3G be fine on KZ3 to play online?

3G = 512k

Cable is typically 1mb+

Also, there's no 4G in my area, and according to Sprint, the priority in my area is so low it will take them 5 years plus to convert the towers to 4G and by then who knows how many G's we'll have.

Thanks for any input!

KZ3 is peer to peer the same as COD. Really have no idea youre managing to use your 3g plan. The speeds might be fast but the pings are terrible.

Just out of curiousity,  do you have wi-fi?

I sometimes use my phone for wi-fi tethering to play online as I've got a fatboy and have to share my ethernet cable sometimes.

Wow that really sucks. Why dont you just get on a plan for a lan line through a communications people you live near. You really need cable internet to fully enjoy online gaming anymore.
