Rented PS3 BLOPs 2 yesterday from Redbox. Was looking forward for some hot CoD action which I am ashamed to admit I get a craving for every year. (I know im part of the problem)
Anyway, I am asked to install Patch 1.03. I've played enough of the CoD games to not be surprised by the fact that a 6 day old game has 3 patches. In fact, I believe we were upto five patches around this time with MW2.
So I download and install the patch. The PS3 restarts like it always does after installing a patch, but the game itself freezes on the initial loading screen. That's it. It doesnt even get to the menu. I uninstall the patch, load up the game, refuse to install the patch, test the offline mode and the campaign works fine.
I googled it and it looks like Activision is aware of the issues. Apparently patch 1.03 was supposed to fix these issues but it ended up introducing more issues. I am ok with framerate issues, servers crashing and lag but this is unacceptable.
It's really sad that this is EIGTH Call of Duty game this gen and we are still going through these issues. It;s Treyarch's FOURTH game on the PS3 and they are still bricking PS3s. Unbelievable.
