More patches to come for PS3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops

Treyarch has confirmed that the PS3 version of CoD: Black Ops needs patching by announcing that it has released, and will continue to release bug-fixing patches.

As was noted by many players on the day following the game's release, there were numerous errors and glitches popping up on the PS3 that no one playing the 360 version seemed to be experiencing. Treyarch's patch is targeting only the PS3, so that speculation has been verified.

"Hey PS3 gamers, we are listening to you and we've been busy working on updates based on feedback from the community," wrote the company's community manager Josh Olin in an official message board.

According to Olin, some patches are already being pushed to players. These include fixes for a lot of the clipping and other graphical glitches, as well as the following problems:

- Crashing when viewing videos
- Wiping of user stats
- Improper display of online numbers
- Online parties becoming split up

However, there are more glitches, some of which are posing bigger problems. Treyarch continues to work to find fixes to these. In addition, Olin says that the following updates are in the works:

- Improved matchmaking for online games
- Improves networking conditions
- Weekly/Monthly leaderboards

Treyarch has also released a new patch for the PC version of the game which helps to combat the lag problems many players had been reporting. The Xbox 360 version, however, appears to be mostly dandy out of the gate, and is not receiving glitch fixes as hefty.

PS3 players report serious Call of Duty: Black Ops bugs, 360 players fine so far 
3D bugs included... do they pop out of the screen?



Armed robbers steal over 100 copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops 
Well, at least it's better than stealing Hello Kitty Adventures


Call of Duty dev says it went 'too far' with graphic violence
Legitimate concern or pre-release hype?

    I hate the spawning in this game, especially the nuke round. Fix it! It`s like MOH they spawn behind you.

    Man.. I've heard of the game making peoples PS3's crash, but I never gave it much attention.. While the treyarch introduction video plays, it freezes lots of the time, but that's about it.. All these other problems are pretty damn big, losing your stats.. and your whole system crashing, WTF!! Treyarch should have put out a Beta, or demo for this game, so these catastrophic issues would not be causing so many large problems.. C'mon Treyarch!! Along with all else.. the microphone icon isn't next to players names who have their mic on..

    There's a HUGE GLITCH on my campaign. After piloting the helicopter, there is a horrible, alarm-like ringing that keeps going and going, even after you've exited the helicopter and are far into the cave. Its loud and annoying enough to make me mute my tv, and it never turns off. Wish they could patch that.

    "hopefully" they will fix the "dreaded" floating apple glitch. And by "hopefully" I mean who cares when and by "dreaded" I mean hilarious.

    Had a friend who had a glitch on part of the campaign for xbox, but after he replayed the level 3 times, it finally let him move on. No problems omline though. BTW... we don't care about the Wii, don't have anything BAD to say... because we don't care about the Wii.

  • GammaGames - November 12, 2010 11:08 p.m.

    haha first :P Wii version is pretty good, no bugs thus far. I just wish we had a couple of the features PS360 owners had. Please, NO FLAMING about wii!
