Bug found causing framing issues

A NeoGAF user, RagingAvatar has claimed he found a 'serious' bug that causes severe input, audio and streaming lag on the Xbox One version of Metal Gear Solid 5.

"Occasionally experiencing severe input, audio and streaming lag - in some instances it even speeds up like it's on fast-forward to get to where it needs to be - as if the game update thread has got severely out of sync with the render thread and the render thread then just skips a bunch of frames when the game update thread stops stalling," he said in the post.

Many other players also have experienced this bug. It will be up to Konami to fix it.

Meanwhile, a report on Gamepur has revealed that Konami has registered the words, "Big Boss", and its description notes this for video games, card games, slot machines and pachinko.
