Black Ops 2 PS3 patch 1.04 live, details so far

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.

I think I figured it out.If you’re on an older system,let’s say pre-unhackable Slim and pre-SuperSlim,your system will be prone to overheating issues.This leads to repeated shut downs and system rebuilds.Eventually the end result is YLOD…and then you’re done…or the same process kills your bluray.This is why the last ‘fix’ was for the connectivity issue…and the 1.04 update was for weapons tweaks mainly. NOT THE OVERHEAT ISSUE.Don’t expect one either. So…here’s my solution…I’ve been running my ps3 on its side.Its sitting on a stand…and I have a big fan blowing directly on it.I did this to test my idea…and I’ve… Read more »

Just updated and it is now not allowing me to sign in to the playstation network. With this error 8002a548. I read their website, and it looks like that error is supposed to be a wifi problem. But I’m directly connected and my internet is working because I’m on this website. Black ops 2 is so glitchy. I’m so close to returning it.
