The folks at From Software have given gamers an update regarding online issues with the Japanese PS3 version of Dark Souls that was released yesterday. There were wide-ranging reports of freezing issues when playing the game online. From Software acknowledged those issues yesterday on their official site and decided to shut down the online service until the could identify the issue. From Software has now confirmed that they identified the source of the issues and is planning to release a patch sometime next week to resolve those issues. Glad they got this fixed before the US release though. Offline should keep folks busy enough till then though and we wouldn’t suggest playing the game early in the US if you could, bad things will happen.
