Not long after PlayStation 3 gamers began complaining of constant freezing and lock ups on their system due to playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Activision took responsibility and released a patch to solve the problem; however, despite the fix many players are still experiencing the same problems after installing the recently released patch.

Checking the Activision forums, a post-patch thread exists where users are outlining that they are still having problems playing the game after the patch has been released.

The problem includes game freezing during multiplayer gameplay, PlayStation 3 system locking up, system shutting itself off, and the requirement of a hard reset to get things up and running again. The released patch it seems is not helping.

Activision is aware that many Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 players are still experiencing problems, and has promised to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

"A patch has been released to fix the lock-up/freeze issues affecting Call of Duty: Black Ops II online gameplay on PlayStation 3. However, we are aware that some customers are still experiencing PS3 lock-ups after installing the patch and we are doing everything we can to get to the bottom of it as quickly as possible," says Activision.

The company would have to move quickly to rectify the problem, it needs to, or else this problem could force PlayStation 3 gamers to look elsewhere for their First-Person Shooter (FPS) multiplayer fix. Worse still, for Sony, some PlayStation 3 gamers who are huge fans of the Call of Duty franchise, could make the decision to jump ship to the Xbox 360, since there are no reported problems on that platform. Who knows, maybe even the Wii U version could look compelling at a time like this.
