Black Ops 2 on PS3 is a problem-riddled disaster

Unfortunate news for Playstation 3 owners who have bought Call of Duty: Black Ops for the console – the game is a buggy mess that is for the most part broken. At least that’s what reports coming in are claiming, with gamer’s taking to the Playstation forums lambasting the game as a problem-riddled disaster.

this is utterly embarassing. What a disappointment to PS3 owners looking forward to this

CyberCam2162d ago

It's a ploy to get PS3 owners that are huge COD fans to switch to the 360! There's quite a few gamers switching too!

knowyourstuff2162d ago

This article is a bit whiney -

”We are aware of connectivity issues that some players are facing in Black Ops II on PlayStation 3. We are working on resolution, thank you.”
"As you can see though they did not provide any insight as to why this issue was occurring at all in the first place."

Yeah, of course they didn't, if they knew what was causing the problem it would've been fixed by now dumbass. Stop whining like a little girl and get a life.

asmith23062162d ago

I don't know anyone who has a PS3 who is switching to 360 for the sake of COD anymore. The last time that might have happened was when MW2 was released. BF3 is where it's at for me in the FPS space and DICE fully support it on all platforms. Actually, the 360 version had the most issues on release but they have been ironed out as far as I know. COD is outdated now in my opinion.

Don't say that, you'll set the tin foil hat bridge off!

@cyber then why put it on wii u

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2161d ago (Edited 2161d ago )

Yeah they have a special love for M$..

Doesn't matter ps3 owners will pre order the next cod anyway even if they don't fix this version. True story.

SolidStoner2161d ago

I have BO2 on ps3, it is a disaster

my ps3 is turning off every 30 minutes of play, I had tons of sound glitches, online have poor connection and lags, leaderboards dont represent what ive done, points disapear every time I freeze... it is crap..

shempo2161d ago

with shitload of AAA exclusives games coming every year trust me....i wont switch my ps3 for a 360 trust me.

greenlantern28142161d ago

can't den that there have been some problems I have had some trouble getting in games, but it only happened once. but i also have friends who have had the same problem, however nobody I know is switching over. And i have no doubt that a patch to fix any issues is on the way, and we will have it soon

Everyone who got the ps3 version should return it, get a refund and DON'T buy it again after patches..

This is the only way to stop developers/publishers releasing half finished products and getting away with it!

portugamer2162d ago

If you are a studio, and I give you 10 or 20 millions, so you release a buggy ps3 version, those millions compensating the games not sold on the ps3, because people grabbed the best version, would you accept my millions?

We are not talking of a game that must run on 10 million different rigs. We're talking about an unified system, where only hard drives or internet speed change: a console. For the game to randomly bug and randomly crash, you need some randomly buggy code. And with some millions, any coder would do miracles, on writing buggy code.
Just my 2 cts.

Angrymorgan2161d ago

I could be wrong portugamer but are you saying , even if every ps3 gamer boycotts blops 2,
It wouldn't make any difference to overall profits???

If so, I think your opinion is wrong

moss7772160d ago

i hope they stop doing there shit work,,,

Trunkz Jr2162d ago

This sounds like every Call of Duty launch.

rezzah2161d ago

Excluding COD4, and the ones before that.

RumbleFish2161d ago

@rezzah: CoD4 was the same on PS3. Broken matchmaking deluxe!

TrollingForColombine2161d ago

@ futurefrog

"What a disappointment to PS3 owners looking forward to this"

They should be well used to it by now!

ALLWRONG2161d ago

Funny thing is Black Ops 2 will still be the PS3's top selling game, along with all other COD games.

killerhog2161d ago

And your point is? Cod will also be the Xbox 360 top selling game, only difference being that at least other genre games on the ps3 can break a million or so, unlike the 360 where mostly shooters (and only the popular ones) break a million.

slaton242161d ago

@killerhog he is talking about it still out selling the other ps3 games even if it is buggy he wasnt comparing it to 360 in no way...fanboys sometimes...i swear no fanboy is a all out gamer(loves games from lots of systems and owns more than just one system) at all no matter what they say...

flyinrhyno2161d ago

I am so frustrated with this game, I can be in a full lobby (12/12) and it'll still say looking for players to balance teams, if I am in a lobby post match and a new match is going to start I have to put the controller down and not look and anyones emblems because it will crash my ps3 (it has happened well over 15 times in the 6 hours or so I have gotten to play so far) Hit detection is terrible spawn system is a joke and the foot-step sounds from opposing players are non existent and cartoon sounding.

bacrec12161d ago

Im not about fanboy bs, im just pissed I cant play this game I stood out at midnight for.

See this is why the high reviews from PS3 mags/sites dont make sense...if its broke why give it a high score, especialy if the other version works fine. Same applies to Skyrim for example.

If it happened once fair enough but its happened with every COD

NonApplicable2161d ago

For god's sake. How many knobs like you must spout the same BS until you get a clue?

Omegabalmung2162d ago

Yeah I'm pretty sure alot of those reviews were probably already written during the press event under a controlled environment.

NonApplicable2161d ago (Edited 2161d ago )

Can I get some proof Mr. Inspector Gadget?


Omegabalmung2161d ago (Edited 2161d ago )


Theres really no reason to call me names but I did find a article.

vickers5002162d ago

Not everyone experiences the same problems.

That Skyrim game breaking glitch that made the game unplayable after the game save reached 8+ mb? I never encountered that, and my save file was about 13mb and I platinumed the game, never experiencing the awful game breaking glitches many others did.

With CoD, I've been reading comments here on n4g of people that have been playing for long periods of time and haven't encountered any glitches or connection issues.

Maybe some of the reviewers simply aren't having these issues that others are having, or if they are, maybe they aren't anywhere near as bad as others issues are (example: if a game I just bought froze only twice within a week of me buying the game, each day playing for like 5-8 hours or so,it wouldn't bother me enough to affect my review of a game, that's something I'd be able to look past and not get overly upset about).

Some of these reviewers are probably just reviewing with their own personal experiences, and not everyones experience will be the same. They aren't going to factor in other peoples problems into their own review of the game (nor should they, though they should make a mention of it as a warning that it could happen).

DA_SHREDDER2161d ago

The game was running fine for the first 48 hours. So calm down, quit trying to troll, noone can return the game if it's already opened so suck it up. It will get fixed. Play some KZ3 until it is. The game is playable at the very least, so if you don't mind some freezing issues, the game still runs so keep playing.

Jinkies2161d ago

A one bubble troll trying to call someone else a troll


Imalwaysright2161d ago

"noone can return the game if it's already opened" I must be royalty to get special treatment because i returned a game after opening it... twice.

slaton242161d ago

also could people already be trying to hack into it...they stated aim bot was detected already on the pc and i swear on ps3 im getting shot on nuketown 2025 when im in a house and opponent outside as in out on the side of the house and i shot he instantly kills me i see killcam he is aiming at the sky and shooting....i like the game better than mw3 but i wish they would fix all this

Anon19742161d ago

Could it be that the problem isn't as big as the internet makes it out to be? I've never known the internets to be prone to exaggeration. It's probably bought reviewers.

Black ops and the whole COD series suck ass!

CerebralAssassin2162d ago (Edited 2162d ago )

Big words. The whole series? You just topped my list for dumbest statement today.

I remember CoD 2 being an awesome game. And CoD 4.

masterabbott2162d ago (Edited 2162d ago )

bite me, ur probably one of the herd that follows the rest of the mindless idots that play this game. go and n00btube someone and leave me alone.

LinkageAX2162d ago

I completely agree, going back to the ones I used to like I can tell that I must have been high or something to have liked something so trite.

ZacE2162d ago

I have to say, this is the one CoD game that actually seems to be making changes and taking some chances. However, I agree that CoD has previously been the poster boy for lazy annualized releases, because Activision know they can make money off it regardless.

CerebralAssassin2162d ago

Wow. I feel like I struck a nerve. Your entitled to your opinion. If you don't like the series then fine. Don't play it. But I'm also entitled to tell you I think your opinion is shit and you sound bitter like this series killed your dog or something. Chill out.

SOULJER2162d ago

Same thing happen last year with b01. Why are people so shock that it happen again.

Hicken2162d ago

Last year was MW3.

Outside of that, I agree. I can't understand why anyone would be surprised. A smart gamer would be skeptical after being burned in the past; the crazy sales the games keep seeing seems to indicate that there aren't as many smart gamers as one would hope.

That said, I've been receiving mixed impressions. While I've heard a lot from various online sources about there being all sorts of flaws, I haven't heard nearly the same ratio of complaints from people I know personally. Of course, they could just be part of the lucky few, but I have to wonder if, perhaps, these issues aren't being over-reported.

Chidori2161d ago (Edited 2161d ago )

I had issues two days ago when I first got the game. For the first hour or two everything was fine, but for the later part of the night, the servers were acting up and I couldn't get in a match....until I discovered that joining a friend's session would work just fine. It kinda sucked depending on another guy to get in a game, but hey, at least I was playing. I'm not really sure why that was happening, but everything has been smooth ever since and I'm really enjoying the game. I always hated MW3, but now that I have BO2 to compare, it really shows how horrible the game really was.

But yeah...Articles like these always has me hesitant in purchasing whatever game it may be, but once I actually get the game I never suffer any of said "game breaking glitches" or "problem riddled disasters". Maybe I'm lucky, but I think it's weird that all my friend's are as lucky as as I am too. I'm not denying the existence of any of the reported problems, but I also believe these issues are being over-reported and exaggerated.

One thing gamers LOVE to do is complain.
