Call of Duty: Black Ops PS3 problems persist

Patch doesn't fix issues say gamers

Persistent issues leave 2010's bestseller hamstrung on PS3.

Call of Duty: Black Ops has been suffering on the PS3 for some time. And while Sony released a patch for the game yesterday, it seems the problems just won’t go away.

Gamers have taken to official forums to complain about the lengthy waits while trying to find an online game, with some describing it as ‘almost unplayable’. Others have moaned about the game crashing, getting ‘connection lost’ error messages mid-game and the inability to host online showdowns.

The makers of Black Ops, Treyarch, had hoped this patch would solve any problems, but now it looks like it’ll have to go back to the gaming board. Accusations that it can’t match up to Modern Warfare 2 maker Infinity Ward will doubtless grow too.
