Infinity Ward is working at full steam to fix the crippled online servers for the PS3 version of Call of Duty 4, after they were "slammed" by the rush of players. In an update this morning, Infinity Ward said they're "upgrading all server hardware as well as dedicated an individual database to each functionality to improve performance and handle the traffic hitting the servers. (i.e. Database for Matchmaking, Database for Leaderboards," which should lead to smoother play for eager gamers.
The incredible Call of Duty 4 hit shelves last Friday, and the high traffic on the online gameplay servers has caused irate gamers to experience a string of connection errors over the weekend.
Infinity Ward says "the server team has been working on this all weekend, and will be working through the night" to fix the online functionality of the game.
