Black Ops PS3 Fixes "In Progress"
Let's face it- the numerous technical issues kept Call of Duty: Black Ops from attaining elite status in our eyes. That, along with poor ally AI and 100% opponent accuracy...from nine football fields away with an Uzi.
But the game really is great and if Treyarch's new patch for the PlayStation 3 version can clean things up, Black Ops will be even more worthwhile. The good news is that community boss Josh Olin has confirmed at the Call of Duty forums that multiple repairs are on the way. In fact, they've already applied a number of updates since the game's launch and listed as "in progress" are the following fixes to the multiplayer action:
- Improved matchmaking to find matches faster
- Improved match and host selection; will result in much better networking conditions for all games (a.k.a., decreased lag)
- Weekly and Monthly leaderboards stats reporting incorrectly for kills, deaths and assists (All Time leaderboard not affected by this)
- Additional improvements to party system
If you hadn't noticed, the game is doing extremely well, despite any glitches and hitches. Activision revealed this past week that Black Ops had surpassed last year's Modern Warfare 2 to become the single biggest entertainment launch in history at 5.6 million copies sold in the US and UK (translating to $360 million) on its first day of availability.
