Summary: Let me state at the outset that I am a fan of the Half Life series, and own the Orange Box for PC. I think the game itself is outstanding - one of the best video game experiences ever created. The Playstation 3 port of the Orange Box is a disappointment. Frame rate issues haunt several areas of the game. Audio issues, ranging from missing sounds to crackling and even audio cutting out completely, are everywhere.
Summary: Sadly, it has already been reported by both 1Up and Gamespot that the PS3 version of Orange Box suffers from framerate issues. I actually bought an Xbox 360 recently, just to play this game, as the PS3 version's release date kept being pushed back. The Xbox 360 version is excellent, but the console itself is incredibly noisy compared to my PS3.
