Bayonetta PS3 Patch Available Today

Patch Fixes Astonishingly Long Load Times

January 28, 2010 – In conjunction with Sega and Platinum Games, Sony has released a patch for the PS3 version of Bayonetta. Bayonetta on the PS3 has been plagued by long loading times between levels, and the patch will fix the problem by allowing gamers to install the title to their hard drives.

Bayonetta was highly acclaimed on both the PS3 and Xbox 360, but reviewers noted technical issues on the PS3 version of the game. We LOVED Bayonetta. It’s an action packed story about a Witch who revives after 500 years sleep at the bottom of a lake to vanquish angels. There’s a story there, but the story is secondary to the awe-inspiring hack and slash gameplay that won our hearts. Add a dash of a funny (and easy on the eyes) heroine and some ingenious level design, and you have an early Game of the Year contender.

If you’re a PS3 owner, the update will download when you boot up the game today and you’ll then be able to install the game and see load times drop significantly.
