Does PS3 have noticeable slowdown for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3?

Does PS3 have noticeable slowdown for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3? Since Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's release, several players have said that there is a noticeable slowdown on the PlayStation 3.

This past weekend's Apex tournament was ran on the PS3 and a few top players mentioned on Twitter that was some noticeable slowdown on the setups at the event.

Here is what coL|Filipino Champ had to say about the slowdown after being asked if it was the monitors or the PS3s.

PS3 is just dropping frames to 45-50 fps (frames per second) instead of 60 fps.

After the jump, is an off-stream match from Apex that Arturo Sanchez filmed with a shaky cam that some viewers and even staff members here at EventHubs have been debating.

Some of the places people claim to see lag are the 5:37, 5:53 and 6:38 marks.

Does Jill Valentine have the easiest TAC infinite of the entire roster? - Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Since the TAC infinite technique was discovered earlier last year, it seems pretty much every character on the roster can perform their own. However, we rarely see these done in actual matches due to the high difficulty and skill level it takes to pull them off.

SexualRice uploaded footage of quite possibly the easiest TAC infinite discovered to date and it comes from a character that is very uncommonly used, Jill Valentine. Below is a bit from the uploader about this particular infinite.

Essentially, when you TAC to Jill, if you Double Knee Drop then immediately cancel in Feral Stance as you hit the ground, Jill retains the TAC mechanic indefinitely so long as she's in Feral Stance and the opponent doesn't hit the ground. This means you can TAC infinite, kill a character, and then TAC infinite the next after a mixup. This is still being researched so there will be more to come.

Works anywhere on the screen and with Up or Side TAC.

Sven: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 current sales are now satisfactory, continues to sell actively

Sven: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 current sales are now satisfactory, continues to sell actively Capcom VP Christian Svensson has been active in the Capcom Unity forums as of late regarding Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Most of it has simply been responding to fan requests regarding an update to the title.

This is the first time in a while that he has directly commented on the sales of the title though. The last time this happened it was a remark upon how it was disappointing that the sales of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 didn't match Super Street Fighter 4's.

Yassar: My question is this how many copies has the game sold up til now, i know you may be reluctant to give numbers but if thats the case sir can you atleast tell us if the game (UMVC3) was a flop? considered still to be a flop or actually over time it has become a hit?

Svensson: As you know, I can not divulge sales figures here. Only IR can do that.

That said, I'm satisfied with sales at this point and it continues to sell actively.

It looks like that over the long term, UMvC3's sales have turned what was once a letdown into an acceptable sales range.

Updated and corrected: Agent M and TQ Jefferson good people to contact with Marvel related questions and requests

Updated and corrected: Agent M and TQ Jefferson good people to contact with Marvel related questions and requests Updated and corrected: This story had originally stated that Capcom's Christian Svensson recommended contacting Marvel's Agent M and TQ Jefferson about getting additional updates to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but this is not the correct context that Svensson intended his message — and was a reporting error on our part.

Svensson had relayed that fans could take their Marvel related questions to these two individuals, as they're good people and supportive, but it was never his intention to have the community push these two individuals for updates to UMvC3, as this was a misinterpretation of Sven's remarks by the EventHubs staff members, specifically myself.

Part of the question and the full answer from Capcom Unity reads as follows:

ZenTea: Whether it's a Twitter account, a forum like this one that they run, an email address, or just a Facebook page, where is the absolute BEST place we can take our questions/requests to on the Marvel side to get heard?

Svensson: Heh, I'm sure if you tweet Agent M and TQ, they'll get the message. Both are great guys and are always supportive so please don't overwhelm them.
