Updated / Lair getting a controls patch soon ?


It looks as if Lair might be getting the long rumored and much wanted analog patch pretty soon. Factor 5’s president said recently that they may have a chance to make this happen, and to everyones delight, that chance seems to have come.

A blogger at IGN writes that he has spent time playing the game using analog controls and how he describes his experience makes it clear the controls felt right: “I played it and Holy shit; Greg needs to give them a new score,” Greg Miller being the one who reviewed the game for IGN and gave it a 4.9 out of 10. “It was kind of clear that Factor 5 put in the extra effort a little begrudgingly, but the results were amazing. This might push me over the edge into the “must buy PS3” territory. I also mentioned Greg Miller’s name, and the Factor 5 guys burned a hole through my skull with their looks of hatred. I think they’ll be alright once the patch is out for a while though.”

We’ll keep our eyes and ears open for any official word on this.

Update: There’s a rumor going around that the patch will hit PSN next month. Fingers crossed.
