Black Ops PS3 patch mentions Xbox Live

Yesterday, developer Treyarch issued its patch 1.06 for the PS3 version of Black Ops, which was aimed at smoothing over some of the issues that have led to widespread criticism of the game.

Many players, and organisations such as video game pressure group Gamers’ Voice, have accused Activision and Treyarch of favouring the Xbox version, and pushing out a flawed game on the PS3 (and PC) which players have effectively paid to beta test.

At any rate, it seems not everything went quite right with the v1.06 patch. For starters, CVG reports that under the information for multiplayer game mode Search and Destroy, text appeared which said: “No Xbox Live party chat.” Remember, this is the PS3 patch.

This particular issue was quickly hot-fixed and removed, apparently, so you won’t see it now. Exactly what this means, we can’t be certain.

Reaction on the Black Ops forum has been rather mixed. There are complaints from some that the new patch has introduced more glitches with double kills and fresh prestige hacks.

Yet some are posting more positively. One player wrote: “Yes finally! All of my problems are gone except for the frame rate. No infinite loading, hit detection is not too bad it’s manageable… and I can actually join all of my friends now. Thank you Treyarch still a little bit of glitches but I’m sure that we can get over that.”

  1. Rumours are that Treyarch took a very big bung from Microsoft to bodge the PS3 version…. Sounds about right, as right now bribing their way to the front is the only way the Xbox can succeed, now the PS3 has the better and more desirable games.

  2. Treyarch made a mess and shouldn’t be allowed to step near a COD series game again.

    >70% of friends i talked to said Black ops wasn’t worth the money/anywhere near MW/WM2.

    >30% had PS3s and NEVER had any problems.
