Call of Duty Black Ops: Servers Live on Xbox 360, PS3?

By Alan Ng - Nov 7, 2010

We have some surprising news to bring you now, as we are hearing reports that the multiplayer servers for Call of Duty: Black Ops have gone live already, despite the game not launching until Tuesday.

We’ve been informed by our sources that a few gamers in the UK who already have the game have confirmed that the servers are live on the PS3 version of the game.

Furthermore, we’ve read on Twitter that a workaround has been created by early Black Ops adopters as well, as simply changing your system language to French will allow you to play online with no problems. This sneaky method appears to work in various countries in Europe, and also for gamers in the US.

We’re not sure if the Xbox 360 servers are live as well, so drop us a comment with your feedback on this. If the servers are indeed live, then expect Treyarch to reset stats anyway when the game launches on Tuesday.

    the ps3 servers lag during team deathmatch so it is impossible to get a high killstreak especially on summit

  • Andy

    Got mine at quarter past ten this morning and the servers seemed to have been up for a day or two anyway as there were over 200 people prestiged at that point, there's now nearly 300 people prestiged.

    I do not know whether or not I can e-mail you, but I have some new info for the new zombies from youtube.

    1. The upgraded crossbow is the the 'Awful Lewton'.

    2. There are two new kill rewards from zombies: The death machine for a limited time for the person who picks it up and the 'Fire Sale', I believe, which lowers the Random Box cost to Ten points for a limited time.

    3. There is an easter egg in "Five" and Kino Der Untoten:
    If you go up to all 3 red phones in "Five" and press X, it will play "Never back Down" by Eminem, like Der Riese and the spines.
    On Kino Der Untoten, when you transport out of the PaP (Pack-a-Punch) room, you go into one of a series of random rooms in the past. Some of these have film reels in them. You pick them up, then teleport to the PaP room again and go up to the projector, where it exchanges the film reels and plays another film on the projector.

    That's all I have at the moment.
