Black Ops Hotfix Solves Connectivity Issues [PS3]
After the release of patch 1.04 all hell broke loose. The official Call of Duty forums got bombarded with threads started by angry Playstation 3 owners and it turns out it wasn’t done in vain.
Shortly after the release of patch 1.04, a possible fix was introduced by stlcardinal9sr. Believe it or not, even Josh Olin [Treyarch Community Manager] was paying attention to this whole fiasco. On the official Call of Duty forum, this is what he had to say about this:
Hey PS3 community –
We are aware that many online players have been experiencing connectivity issues since Tuesday’s patch. We have been working hard to track down the cause and fix them as quickly as we can. We’ve already updated the game with one “hot fix” since Tuesday’s release that has improved many of those connectivity problems, and we’ve got more coming, so stay tuned.
Forum feedback has been tremendously helpful. In fact, we’ve been on the forums, monitoring feedback and in a number of cases, working with community members directly, so please keep the feedback coming. In the meantime, know that we’re committed to doing everything we can to support the best online experience, and we’re working quickly to resolve this issue.
NOTE: There have been rumors suggesting that deleting your save data will improve network connectivity. Please do not delete your save data, as it will not have an effect on network connectivity. A hot fix was released at 9:30 pm PST last night, coinciding with the first instance of this rumor, and this hot fix is the reason many users have experienced improved connectivity.
Thank you for your continued support and feedback. As always, we will keep you updated.
To clear up some things. Do NOT delete your saved data as suggested before, but instead make use of this hotfix. We know Treyarch and Josh Olin have been wrong in the past before, so every bit of feedback you can give about this situation will be appreciated.
