Black Ops Patch 1.03 Issues

Today Activision released the Black Ops patch 1.03 for the PS3 to counter all the problems associated with Call of Duty: Black Ops. Unfortunately the PS3 version of Black Ops is very substandard in comparison to that running on an Xbox 360. There have been numerous lag problems, disconnects, transmission errors, matchmaking issues, party problems and other things that the Black Ops patch 1.03 intended to fix. (Call of Duty: Black Ops, PS3)

Yeah its bullshit. Fuck you Treyarch for a half assed job. Its such a shame cause the game has alot of potential to be epic.

I agree 100% however, how many Lemmings will be lining up to buy the next COD game on PS3 next year?

This game was over priced and under cooked. Activision have a looooong way to go to earn back my trust.
WhittO  +   1907d ago
ye, I think this game needed another 6 months of development..

This is what happens when you try and rush a COD game out EVERY year Activision.

Meh, all the issues seem to be online.

Doesnt concern me.

I feel bad for you guys thou.

I never really had many problems on the PS3 version before the patch and since the patch I've had even less problems. My connection has always been at least 3 green bars so I don't know what everyone's complaining about. None of my friends are having problems either.

You're an idiot for writing a half ass comment like that
elmaton98  +   1907d ago
You're right fuck them but still is not their fault cause m$ is paying activison so they can get a better version in their system fuck acti and fuck m$ I hope they go bankrupt soon so they can sell the ip to someone else who really cares about they're customer

Go read the forums on black ops in the 360 section and you will find those issues aren't just on the ps3 doushey writers.
rebirthofcaos  +   1908d ago

There's a rumor that microsoft paid activision to make the ps3 version inferior i can't find the article but if someone does post it it would be greatly appreciated.

Let the agrees and disagree begin.
irish-leprecaun  +   1908d ago
i would believe that mate. if they really cared they would use dedicated servers.
GoldPS3  +   1908d ago
I believe it. Microsoft and Activision are American companies and I think they both hate Sony. Just wait and see COD will be exclusive to 360. If not this gen then next.
Cevapi88  +   1908d ago
i highly doubt that...the CoD series started out on the pc...if Activision were to do that, then MS would need to have VERY DEEP pockets in order to offset all the sales from the PC and PS3 if they did do that, these fan bases will feel alienated and pissed off, probably leading to boycotts of Activision's other products

i dont think so. that would definitely be a bad business decision. There there to make money not piss off fans
soundslike  +   1908d ago
well the ad campaign does raise suspicion.
w00t conspiracy!

its not like they would have to actually directly make it inferior either, they could port it directly without off-loading anything on the cell and claim they maxed it out...
Pillage05  +   1908d ago
Comming from a ps3're very paranoid dude.
chazjamie  +   1908d ago
How did you come to that conclusion?because the game was badly ported? The online issues is shared by all three platforms. The only thing that is pseudo-clear is the dlc. If your conspiracy is true then microsoft should be broke by now, considering the fact that the majority of multiplatform games run better on the 360.
elmaton98  +   1906d ago
They do because they program the game on 360 first (which is logical) and then porting to the PS3 (BTW is easier to program a game on 360 based on the hardware which is old and programmers knows it )
Lovable  +   1908d ago
The zombie mode didn't have any problem at all, but the multiplayer is plague with disconnection, lag(believe it or not there weren't any lag before the patch)and freezing.
user858621  +   1908d ago
Ouch... Major Burn!!
Ace_Pheonix  +   1908d ago
This article fails. It's purely based on speculation. I downloaded the patch and haven't had any problems, played for a few hours already. And Ninja Pro is perfect in my opinion, I can hear players just as I could hear someone walking down my hallway. Not to mention the 360 version is just as buggy as the PS3 version. And that talk of Live having dedicated servers is total horse shit. You're not paying for dedicated servers, you're paying so Microsoft can give your money to Activision to get all the DLC a month early to get you all to pay Microsoft instead of play for free and wait a month.
scar20  +   1908d ago
They said only you can hear your footsteps with ninja pro but your enemies can't.And it's true i tried it with my bro in a private match and he couldn't here my footsteps only i could.
Ace_Pheonix  +   1908d ago
Huh, with my Ninja Pro equipped I don't hear ANYTHING from me. I make a sound when I reload, but I don't hear my footsteps at all. Makes it much easier to hear others around me. I have a Tritton Ax Pro, works like a champ.
BaSeBaLlKiD721  +   1908d ago
Black Ops has been running smooth for me ever since the patch...
Organization XII  +   1907d ago
you should probably test the multiplayer mode
BaSeBaLlKiD721  +   1907d ago
I'm talking about the multiplayer... Why would I be talking about the story mode if the patch is related to multiplayer fixes?
dontbhatin  +   1908d ago
would be so much easier if they used all this money that they made from all these damn cod games they would make dedicated servers like bfbc2. or killzone 2 and soon to be 3.
swat  +   1908d ago
yes since the patch there is no lag but more disconnects and transmission errors
Relientk77  +   1908d ago

Relientk77  +   1908d ago

HDgamer  +   1908d ago
You better use gopher mods to get it fixed for cheap then get the protection plan from sony.
Relientk77  +   1908d ago

HDgamer  +   1908d ago

SpitFireAce85  +   1908d ago
And guess what this game is the only game that will get
away with all this crap if it was another game/franchise
it would get killed by the media and gamers...

Here is the PS3s Community Update/fixes

And here is the 360s Community Update/fixes
---stone---  +   1908d ago
Hey PS3 gamers/Hey 360 gamers,

We are listening to you and we’ve been busy working on updates based on feedback from the community. We have already deployed a number of updates, and there will be many more to come. Stay tuned right here for all the latest info.

lmao @ and there will be many more to come.

Bobby Kotick and Treyarch probably sit around laughing and the word broke is only associated with "the only thing about <insert current CoD game here> is the broke people that cant afford it"

Bobby and JD are pissed at the CoD community for calling out the laundry list of bugs, so much so their going to slip on some tighty whities, grab bad minton rackets and start clubbing baby animals.

How dare they take the profits from Black Ops to pay people to "fix" it. The outrage!!
Sukebe_Gamer  +   1908d ago
I just got done playing with my friends (party of six) and got kicked from the lobby several times. lag seems to be a little better tho.
Thoreau  +   1908d ago
the patch did nothing
i may retire-southpaw79-psn

the lag is too bad and i have never experienced lag this bad on any earlier cod game. treyarch truly did an inferior job on black ops as compared to codmw2 and codwaw. i cannot believe the series is actually regressing.........
DirtyLary  +   1908d ago
Xbox version was just as bad tonight. Quit my play session do to lag.
Bolts  +   1908d ago
Its not just the PS3. On the PC this game is an epic fail. Most PC users can't even play without experiencing massive lag in multiplayer and incredibly piss poor frame rates and stuttering in singleplayer.

The shocking thing about all this is that we're talking about a game and engine that PC gamers usually rip through at full 1080p X8 AA and 80 FPS. Yet for some reason the hacks at Trey managed to break one of the most bug free engine on the PC upon release.
Elvfam511  +   1908d ago
Before this damn patch i never had lost connection... Really Treyarch? How you go backwards on fixing the problem?
ton77  +   1908d ago

i find matches fairly quickly. its not so bad on 360 compared to what it was when it was released. best cod to date i say its not noob friendly
Sizzon  +   1908d ago
Treyarch needs to fucking fix this bullshit, I couldn't play a single match yesterday so I ended up gaving up on the damn game, it's frustrating as fuck when you all the time get party problems, connections interrups, lag...

You all paid $60 to be beta testers.

hahaha for sure my friend for sure, and activision just made hundreds of millions because of this piece of shit they gave to people..

thats one epic avatar btw, killzone for the fucking win
fuck you activision
Toman85  +   1907d ago
I got into PSN Plus to test the almighty Killzone 3, its damn much better than COD BO online, and still KZ3 is in beta haha, that is BS!!!! And I have COD BO.....
Akth8r  +   1907d ago
KZ3 is a solid shooter, after playing the Beta i turned off my ps3, went down to game and bought KZ2 (For £10 its worth more than COD:BO even at that price), i played KZ2 before but never got into multiplayer until KZ3 Beta.

EDIT : I've got the PS3 version of COD:BO and i've not experienced any major problems so far, finally got to play wager games with friends. Only problem concerning me is the weird screen glitch on the menu(Don't know how to describe it)
