Interested in copping a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2? It would be in your best interest to stay away from the Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) version and pick up the Xbox 360 version instead, just for the sake of escaping the plethora of bugs that are plaguing the Black Ops 2 on the PS3.

Folks who have been gaming a long time would know that third party titles don't tend to work well with the PS3, especially when the Xbox 360 is the lead console in the game's development. This is mainly due to the PS3's alien-like architecture have developers scratching their heads in disbelief.

The PS3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, according to many reports on the interwebs, is doing everything but setting PS3s on fire. Gamers are angry, the game is freezing their beloved console on regular intervals, forcing players to reboot their system, which sometimes after reboot goes into the System Restore state. Now, whenever the PS3 boots up with System Restore, it is never a good thing because this could mean hard drive failure or a number of other things.

Here's the thing - if you're a gamer who owns multiple platforms and is out to get Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, get it for the Xbox 360 and save yourself the headache. Third party titles on the Xbox 360 rarely have this amount of problems. It is usually the PS3 that does.

Up to this day, PS3 gamers are yet to experience the Elder Scrolls: Skyrim in its entirety due the game developer's inability to port the DLC contents to the platform. For the sake of PS3 gamers, let's hope Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 doesn't turn out to be another Skyrim, for it could mean fans of the platform would have little-to-no-choice but to purchase an Xbox 360, which isn't a bad console in its defense.
