Gamers have been complaining that the PlayStation 3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's online gameplay has been either crashing or locking up their console.

Treyarch released a 58 MB patch for the game claiming, "A patch has been released to fix the lock-up/freeze issues affecting Call of Duty: Black Ops II online gameplay on PlayStation 3. Simply boot up Black Ops II and sign in to play online, and the patch will install automatically. Again, we thank you for your patience during this matter."

However, users on the official Black Ops PS3 forum are reporting they're still having issues.

User on the thread are complaining:

* "The freezing has definetly been fixed while switching game modes but still cant get on a server.....damn server error"
* "I'm stuck waiting for players endlessly which has been the case since launch"
* "I can't even play campaign without if freezing. It says "Error" before I even get to the main menu."

Stay tuned.

One of the sounder reasons why not to buy games day one, it is even sadder considering this is a console version of the game.

Good point, that is why I don't like doing so. Diablo 3 was enough to convince me not to do it again.

I sometimes wonder if they skip running certain tests, and just push the game out for sales. Upgrades to a game I can understand, that is why we have game testers to point out flaws in the game to be fixed with patches, but you would think that the game would at least be "freezless" when playing.

Never pre-order any more - been bitten too hard by too many well known publishers. Anyway, the first "BO" had a less than stellar launch, on PC at least, so you'd be mad to trust that this would be any better on launch day.

Games aren't what they used to be. Back in the day, you knew that what you buy would be outstanding, and in working order. You didn't even need the patches, but you got it any way if you played online or if you just wanted to upgrade your game.
