Black Ops II Suffers Freezing Issues on PS3, Acti Working on a Fix

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is out now, and for some PlayStation 3 users, the game has been experiencing issues with connectivity that cause the game to freeze according to posts on the official Black Ops II forums. Activision is at work on a fix though.

Activision Support has responded to said issues via Twitter, stating: "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."

And that's about all there is to it. If you're having freezing and connectivity problems with Call of Duty: Black Ops II on your PS3, sit tight. No doubt there'll be a patch on the way soon.

Copy/pasting the same source code for the past 10 years starting to get a little too complicated? (Sorry, mean trolling but I couldn't resist)

I've not had any issues, sometimes you have to feel that there are people that will post non-existant problems just to try and bring a bit of negative publiciy to something.

The freezing is rather annoying. Honestly, it looks like the game doesn't run exceptionally well on the PS3, as if the game is trying to do more than the PS3 allows with it's 256/256MB RAM. But that's Treyarch's fault for designing it that way.

Not having freezing issues just can not play on the Public Matches only can play on League Play, the 360 is also having the same issues and if you got this on the PC and having issues you need to update your PC.

@23 What? I though most PC gamers had moved on from disks and are now mainly using Steam? It shouldn't be a problem there.

I haven't encountered these problems, besides the small temporary freezes in the pre/post-game lobby, so it's not too bad. Not like I care for MP that much anyways lol

btw Can anyone else sign into PSN? idk if my internet is just being weird or if Sony is doing some "maintenance".

You do realise they outsource the disc manufacture to other companies right?

Because the second disc was from mass effect that part isn't activision's fault.

The freezing issues however, are acti's for pushing so hard on the 360 so much that they cant get the ps3 right.

Well the game runs fine for me, I do get the occasional lag which I know for a fact isn't me since I'm running 40mb fiber-optic broadband... although there are times, like right now, for the last hour infact, where I can't join any matches whatsoever, and keep getting the "Error, cannot connect to server" message, which is pretty annoying... no biggie though, I'll play Battlefield 3 on PC while I wait for a fix, lol.

PS. The game is actually really fun, don't listen to the haters!

I've been sick of COD for almost 3 years now, and decided to try this game at my friends house. Ended up buying it myself. I cant believe how good this is, I wasnt expecting this good of a COD game. Haven't had any problems yet, it does run a little slow on the PS3 sometimes, but nothing big. I am still shocked at how this game turned out, because I didnt like Black OPS 1, and never got into MW3. COD4 was still the last best COD for me.

BLOPS2, is good, better than good actually, its really good. Seriously.

The whole "pick 10" thing is great, it gives ALOT of personal choice to every class, beyond all previous CoD's.

The servers on the other hand, are like free wi-fi from McDonalds.

Going on 9 hours now, no multiplayer.
Zombies is fun, but not so much when your forced to do it solo.
The only mode that work (for me at least) are the league play stuff, which is CORE mode, I'm a HC guy, I like it when a bullet to the face kills someone, not a full clip, then they just get red screen and knife you.

Hardcore needs more more though, which I expect will be addressed down the road, hopefully sooner rather than later, HC Domination SHOULD never have been left out.

No freezing issues, however connecting online has been a pain in the ass all day!

cannae fucking believe it playing solo in zombies, kicking ass at round 18 and game throws me out! WTF! Ragin!!!! only time a ever got thrown outa zombies in BO1 was when a host quit! I was the fuckin host!

Oh playing campaign, pause for a second then all of a sudden "downloading game settings" had to reset game, ended up resuming at at start of level! Turns out i paused it just before the end of a level! Fucking joke lol!

Campaign is the best COD campaign to date! Loved every minute! Far to easy to complete on veteran though!!

Gotta love those yearly series... they have such quality! First Assassin's Creed III, now Black Ops II. Good stuff. /sarcasm

Seriously, though. The way this series makes money should be illegal. Copy, paste, release in November, day later announce info on next year's installment... and watch the peons willingly bring you money.

I got report from Xbox users they're having something similar to PS3 problem. They're reporting lag on the MP, and some similar freezing problem on 360. So we're not the only one getting screwed.

I have been experiencing the same freezing problems. I am just hoping it does crash all my saves. It didn't do it for a few hours but now it is again
