It seems that the old issue with games freezing the moment they are released has struck once again, as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Black Ops 2 are suffering freezing problems. That’s not the only issue because some PS3 owners are also experiencing connectivity issues as well, but you’ll be pleased to learn that a fix is incoming.
Unlike EA and the issue with FIFA 13 a little while back Activision is aware of the situation and has been on Twitter just to ease fans minds, by letting them know that they are working on a fix. This still does no excuse the fact that more and more games are being released when they are laden with bugs.
Okay, we know that many gamers will say that it’s day one and we should give the developer the benefit of the doubt, but when you consider that this has been months (if not more) in the making, then you would expect the biggest game of the year to release without a hitch.
When it comes to connectivity we should cut them some slack because servers will be under a huge amount of strain as gamers will all be trying to access the online content mostly at the same time, which you should then realize will cause a bottle neck. However, how come it’s only the PlayStation 3 version that is experiencing this issue?
We’re also hearing that PC users have also be experiencing a few issues, but the advice being given is to make certain that all your drivers are fully up-to-date.
Going back to the PS3 version of Call of Duty Black Ops 2, we have also tried on many occasions to play the game following 1.02 patch and during our time our gameplay just kept freezing. We’re certain that Activision will not take too long to issue an update 1.03, for you to download, so for now you’ll just have to persevere.
