Have you been playing CoD: Black Ops on PS3 trouble-free, or are you one of the unlucky players who have been running into bugs and glitches?
That's what happens when you talk bad about Sony.Be a good little boy and maybe they'll restore it. Oooops meant to hit reply.
i have had all of these glitches so far especially the one where they spawn directly behind me i be like wtf and i swear i thought someone was using commando at me that guy fly towards me and knifed me
I'm sure I'd get all this as well if I could get the game to actually start...
@Xboxfanboys < in general The PS3 version is fine, small glitches come in most games. This is blown way out of proportion. If you want to talk about lag and an unfinished product go look at "Kinect" (Y)
but i found out its only because of the patch if i delete the patch it works fine... i cant even get past the load up screen.
PSFan stop talking about 360 fanboys then make a comment like that. All fanboys including yourself can go fuck themselves. Fans are people who enjoy/praise one thing, doesn't mean you need to hate on everything else to make yourself feel better. Just pathetic.
sad to say but Ive experienced these and more :( there were some serious frame rate issues in the campaign.. didn't notice any in the multiplayer though? And that spawning next to enemies OMG annoying as hell on nuke town happens EVERYTIME you spawn.. and the mics NEVER show. If the whole lobby had mics on I would see like 2. never had my PS3 freeze though. The leave with party NEVER works and is VERY annoying. There was a also a glitch in the campaign where you go to check out that plane crash that supposedly had nova6 on board and when I got to the plane to look at the package the game wouldn't continue it wouldn't load the scene where I was supposed to open it and that one guy wasn't there not Woods or Reznov but that other guy who's name I cant remember and I saved and quit and then came back trying to do it and it didn't work still couldn't continue, turns out I just had to restart the mission. Also FIX THE PARTY SYSTEM like honestly all the time it either says party no longer available (EVEN THOUGH IT IS!) or says your data is either newer or older than this persons data or something like that. BUT PLEASE just fix these!! PLEASE!!
talk about rushing out games jesus Activision
Thats what happens when you cant pay your bills because he has no job because he is too busy playing as a troll. Man this site is full of them.
I have just about all of those issues as so does many other people except the Freeze. I did notice the leader board and the leave lobby with party.
Works fine for me.
Me too, some issues with framerate in Split-screen, disconnects, and other small things with sound that ought to be ironed out soon
No problems with 2
works for me too. I hope they get it fixed for the other people.
I have it on PS3 and have had Knifing mechanic act like commando on one multi-player match (free for all), I knifed someone and noticed I'd jumped about 5 steps forward towards player being knifed. Theatre mode has worked well for me and have had no other problems yet. Maybe with more playtime some other bugs/glitches will happen.
Self sabotage? /s Hey! Dont buy the PS3 version! Buy the superior!...
Well I would of chosen xbox but my ps3 is my only system working right now. So which one is superior for me?
PS3 version works fine for me, a little lag / slowdown at the more hectic moments though.
same, the framrate really likes to dip in ground war -_-.
Nobody notice...this is of course the PSN. There might be one or two matches where I might run into a few peeps with mics but it makes no difference really since everybody ignore them anyway. This is a positive for me because I find "talkers" distracting. Just shut up and shoot something, we're playing CoD not like strategy makes a difference.
but when you are playin with friends and you can't hear them it's a problem.
the mic works, the icon doenst show up sometimes though. good try though, troll.
sometimes the mic icon show up but you can't hear your friend.....Stupid idiot
this problems. Constant lag, sometimes the game freeze, making and leaving a party is a major pain. and most of all there is an horrible sound glitch that prevents user to hear footsteps of the enemy, even without ninja.
Theatre mode sucks for me. Loses my videos at random, won't up them to the file share and most of the time when I try and watch other peoples videos it says 'ran out of memory'. After idling for abour 30 seconds. That's really bad programming if it literally has ran out of memory when trying to function at a basic level, as intended. Assuming it means RAM, by memory... it's not really something you'd want to tell the consumer either... yet I get the message regularly. Maybe it means my HDD 'memory' ? but that has 20gb left so I don't think so. *sigh* it's pretty messed up. However aside that it's been pretty smooth... matchmaking is hit and miss with laggy games being relatively frequent, then again my connection sucks so it's largely my own fault. Still, been smooth and consistent for the most part. Oh! I did have the 'mics not showing in the lobby' thing. My mate said it wasn't displaying my mic, but uh... I'm not sure how it matters as you can still hear the people talking, and the mute button still works if you want to mute them... so it doesn't make any difference either way. I did encounter some weird spawns. I tried to watch it over in theatre mode but that crashed. On my first couple games, on one of the maps I'm pretty certain a guy spawned behind me, on two occasions. If he didn't spawn behind me I must have been blind because the room only had one entry point, and I was covering it...
I have had the lag, which is not unexpected because CoD games always have that little bit of lag that causes you to look at the kill cam like WTF. I've also had issues with spawning, sometimes I will spawn right next to someone on the other team and get destroyed before I even get moving. Other than that I haven't had any of the other issues.
Had a few freezing issues and a weird checkered pattern and was reset to level 11. But I just reset my PS3 and it turned back to my previous level.
The only issues that seems to be the ps3 fault is the lobby issues with voice chat which would be tied to psn.... Still it looks bad on tryarch to release a buggy version when Invinity Ward was able to deliver the port seemlessly(with slightly lower graphix).
the voice chats better? :/ infact better than previous COD games that put some kind of 'distortion' on voices, now you can hear people much clearer actually Also when mw2 launched ps3 had some issues also(like the PC) like the servers going down n crap like that.. basically i dont blame treyarch or infintyward, i blame activision for being up Microsofts ass for the sh*tload of money they're getting, timed exclusive DLC is fair enough but they clearly favour the 360 port over pc and ps3.. and this time still the PC despite giving them dedicated servers there was still lag issues
Things like this make me so glad i never bought a PS3.
Comments like that makes me so glad you never bought one too.
Why is that you comment makes no sense? i bet Sony wishes i bought a PS3, get back to playing your gimped multi plats little boy.
What part of it doesnt make sense? I simply cross refenrenced all data i have on you with my personality and came to the conclusion that i dont like you and that i wouldnt wanna meet you online. As simple as that. I know sony doesnt care about anything because its a corporation, not a person. I didnt know pc multiplats were gimped? because that is where i buy mine. Calling someone a little boy only shows your own imaturity.
all i have to say is LMFAO!!
- Party Invite System not working, unable to join friends even with public chosen Been getting this since release. Hopefully fixed soon as many folk are unable to play with one another. - Leaderboard not reading correct kills Seems fine for me so far. - Framerate issues, affecting gameplay There are definitely some framrate issues when things get hectic in the middle of some maps... Don't think they really affect gameplay though, but it's I don admit that it's not quite as smooth as previous versions. - Theatre mode not working correctly Don't have a problem with this. - Respawns, issue spawning near enemies on smaller maps Not PS3 specific. The general spawn areas are good on most of the maps but are seriously problematic and the smaller maps. Biggest example of this being Nuke Town. - Game freezing PS3 Console Hasn't happened yet... fingers crossed. - Party option "Leave with party" not working correctly Again IF we are able to get in a party in the first place (which we struggle with) we have no problems with this. - Locale Search option not working Seems OK. - Mic's not showing in lobby Not only not showing, but a lot of the time you can't speak to one another in the party at all until you are actually in a lobby. - Error "Disconnected due to transmission Error" appears after some games Not being getting disconnected after game but sometimes have trouble connecting to the servers in the 1st place. 'Server Down' message when downloading game settings. Reported Glitches - Knifing mechanic seems to act like Commando lunge from MW2 Amazingly I find that the opposite of this sometimes happens in that you can't knife someone 2 feet away from you. Inconsistent. In general it appears to be the teething problems that most online shooters have just after release. Framerate will most likely need a patch if it can be fixed at all that is.
yup Jellzy i had all these issues yesterday to man! i also had my ps3 freeze :( agreed on the commando thing i haven't had this, ive been knifed through my bullets a few times but not commando lunged and my leader boards stats are mest up, but my combat record tells my what my kills really are, only at like 600 but my TDM leaderboard says i have like almost 6000 kills :L
Hmm... Might have too have a look at the leaderboard's again once I've finished work. Yeah that tad bit of lag that was persistent in previous cod's no matter what you latency/ping is, is still there. Example; getting shot at then dying round the corner, knifing someone only too watch the killcam show that it never happened etc.
Same, currently have all these issues...when i get kicked from a lobby the colour of the right side of the screen goes funny and it tells me im in theatre mode.... @Jellzy that "lag" is very annoying on this game, its so hard to ignore when i die when im round the corner or i clearly shoot them and bullets dont seem to damage them ¬_¬
and i have 4000k/5000d:(
No doubt servers are overloaded, but Treyarch should've anticipated this. The lag is UNBEARABLE, and the framerate rarely peaks at 60fps. You can't disable voice chat, or mute the muppets whining on your time - even when mute HAS been selected. The party system is a joke, as is the spawn system (when I'm running Ghost and a teammate spawns on me while the enemy has Spy Plane active, it's not convenient)... not a happy customer. Your move Olin.
Most of these problems are related to PSN. Game invites, voice chat, etc. Obviously the problem is not with PSN since most of these functionality are not taken care by PSN. For every game developed developers have to write all this functionality from the ground up to be supported by their game. I guess that's the benefit of a unified online service like xbox live. I said it many times, buy multiplayer games for the xbox 360 and keep the PS3 for exclusives and blu-ray.
'Most of these problems are related to PSN. Game invites, voice chat, etc. Obviously the problem is not with PSN since most of these functionality are not taken care by PSN'. Isn't that a wee bit contradictive of itself? I get the gist of what your saying though, but doesn't the in game chat etc. rely on the game itself and the developers servers? 'For every game developed developers have to write all this functionality from the ground up to be supported by their game'. Not true, as most of this stuff (if neeeded) is part of the SDK (Software Development Kit). The party system for me is the only thing that keeps Live ahead of the PSN in terms of functionality.
Sorry to say this but the 360 has been having the same problems for Party chat and game invites, not only for the Psn but for live as well.
That's true! Gears2 anyone?
the mics were working and so were party invites, just like normal.
Plenty of PS3 issues for this user... it hasn't been a smooth experience so far, but still liking it.
I mean if it doesnt then they did a lazy job programming for the PS3
PS3 is not the only one with issues 360 is also experiencing the same thing. It is just more people are experiencing it more then others.
Lots of Lag, Party Invite Problems, Cannot Follow the Party Leader when They Leave the Room, Have to Re-Invite over and over, Black Ops slows down the XMB unbelievably. I'm sure these are day 1 problems and I hope they will be ironed out. On the plus side, the Mics don't cut out every 5 secs like in MW2.
yeah... there's also some kind of frame rate issues and weird lag stuff where there's a delay in the bullet collision timing or something...
I've had the Mics not showing up in lobby and some major frame-rate issues which i know aren't a problem on the 360 as i played it on there first, kinda sucks i hope the frame-rate issues are just due to a bad netcode but if not i'll sell the damn game.
can i ask something? not fanboy... why the 360 versions of Castlevania, assassins creed 1-2 and now black ops are stable and dont have problems, and the ps3 versions are unstable????
Because of power of "teh cell", it doesnt produce anything under 2160P @ 400 fps.
code optimization I assume and the difficulty of developing for the ps3...although i thought Castlevania looked better on the ps3 but I could of been high.
I'm having framerate issues especially with the ballistics knife, I would shoot it and it takes like a second to fire. I can see he blur starting by my face and shooting late. I'm also having the respawn problem. Enemies spawning to close to me, don't even have time to reload.
So far I have had a problem with a game ending bug. It occurs in mission # 5 where you have to destroy the tanks while on the jeep. I had was just about to steer the missile into tank number 2 when the camera cut away. The tank was still destroyed, but when the jeep started to move again I found myself on the battlefield. I had to run across the battlefield to find Woods but I can't get onto the jeep. I was playing the game on the veteran level and as you can imagine this is quite disappointing.
