We’ve just checked Black Ops 2 on the PS3 and found patch 1.04 for download, which seems to have gone live only moments ago. The details about this Black Ops 2 PS3 update are sketchy with full 1.04 patch notes expected within the next 24 hours. It is hoped by a large number of gamers that this latest update fixes the crashing and freezing problems PS3 players are experiencing, although it is fair that not all gamers report the same severity of issues.
Over the last couple of days Black Ops 2 players on the PS3 have been increasingly frustrated at certain problems, and this resulted in increasing posts in official forums asking when patch 1.04 would release for the PS3, which we already knew had been in development. This led to the Twitter account for Activision Support posting a short tweet about the next Black Ops 2 patch, which you can see in the image below. This basically explained that the 1.04 patch would go live on PS3 in the US at 11PM PST, which would mean a global rollout to the UK and other countries would progress after this time. We can confirm that the UK has now received this latest update.
Do you see Black Ops 2 patch 1.04 on your PS3, and if so what’s your country and location? The tweet explains that the Xbox 360 will receive its next title update this weekend, and patch notes about what has changed will arrive in due course. Our PS3 Super Slim had no crashing problems although the older model we have did experience hard resets after freezing, which we’ve played for around 30 minutes since Black Ops 2 patch 1.04 without any issues, so fingers crossed this finally fixes the problem for everyone.
