COD Black Ops: Crashing / Freezing PS3 Consoles after Update?

We have some worrying news to bring you now, as we are hearing numerous reports that Call of Duty: Black Ops is crashing and freezing older PS3 models, before and even after the recent patch update which went live a few hours ago.

If you head over to this translated version of Dutch site PS3 Sense, you can read a bit more information on this. They have provided links to other forums, including the official Sony boards, all related to Black Ops causing problems for those still with the fat model of the PS3.

This may just be a case of, ”a new PS3 update is out for the game, but I’ll say Black Ops crashed my PS3 anyway”, but due to the vast number of complaints coming in, there may actually be a legit problem at hand here.

We’ll try and bring you more details on this soon, in the meantime let us know if the game has crashed, or even bricked your old PS3 model whilst playing.

I have a fat 60 gb PS3 and it crashes after approx 10 mins of black ops. I have complete shutdown with a flashing red light. All other games are fine. I also got the game for the zombies and think the amount of money these guys make on the games, year after year, means us customers deserve a better service.

My PS3 crashes before it even loads the XMB now. Wtf?! I can’t even load the XMB! I am PISSED. Blops 2 has frozen on me four times in the last 14 hours and now the POS broke my PS3!

Yes the Black Ops update does crash your PS3.  I downloaded it last night and now I can’t even play Socom 4.  My system is less then a year old.

I have the new ps3 slim.bought COD black ops soon as it came out and thats when the freezing started.thought that was left behind in the 1990s.At the moment, I cant play multiplayer online,solo or split screen zombies.it just freezes when I click on any of them to start.Even sometimes I cannot skip the beginning scene when you turn the game on.the part with the lady annoucing the numbers on the mic.I press all the buttons but it plays till the end before I can go into the game.

I am convinced from reading pages of complaints and frustrated remarks that there is a conspiracy to make owners of later model ps3's update or all together replace their systems. I have had my ps3 for 2 years now and played MW2 as well as GTA 4, FEAR2 and other up to date games on my ps3. Only until i purchased and played BLACK OPS did my system stop accepting all games and bluray movies. I refuse to believe that this is all but a coincidence. My brother has an older model and his did the same upon playing BLACK… Read more »

it says i need an update to sign in on Black Ops but when i press "ok" it goes to a black screen and does nothing… then i turn it off and try it again, same thing. my friend said that i need to erase some stuff to free up memory, which i did, and it still goes blank.

Why hasnt TreyArch responded to this problem or Playstation, they must know this problems exists, there are quite a few threads that are related to this problem. Do your jobs, or give us our money back! Sounds like a class action lawsuit to me!!! Now you hear us?

I have new slim PS3 and never had a problem w any of my games. After downloading 1.07 update cod will go to first screen that says "press start button" and wont go any further. Only thing I can do is hit ps button and close game. Any suggestions? I have deleted and reinstalled With no success.

All my other games work even my old MW2 game the only thing it fezzes on is Black ops, heck i have been playing dragon ages for days now waiting to see if they add a new update or something because i have exchanged my black ops three times because i thought it might have been the cd but it turns out its not because there are no scratches and it loads up the game sometimes…but other then that it wont stop freezing

Duuuude, My PS3 FAT 40GB freezes after 15min of gameplay, I fucking lost so much scores. Makes me wanna hate Treyarch for making the game. I would rather appreciate if infinity ward made the game, at least they don't leave a whole bunch of bugs left. :C

I'have te brand new ps3 slim edition, every game works fine, but recently since that update every zombie match makes my ps3 crash, not only kino der toten,every map in the zombie mode, (even those extra's) since those crashes, COD mw2 starts crashing too, especially while i'm playing online,

I have a 250gb slim PS3….been playing Battlefield and recently bought Black Ops. Went to put it in for the first time today and as it was loading told me there was an update (1.06). Upgraded and game loads all the way to the 'press start'. Nothing. Deleted the update and when it asked to install it again I cancelled as I read somewhere to do it when you go into the game. Same issue. Is this the 'locking' issue that everyone is talking about? Any way round it?

I bought my ps3 a couple of weeks ago… new slimeline 320GB model. Also crahses online… but I'm wondering if it crashes on the person hosting it. I was playing with a mate, and when mine crashed his came up with migrating host!?! I have a good conneciton, so I wonder if it's the hosts that keep crashing

I have the old fat ps3 model, im probably posting this like 1month after this blog was posted but ive been playing alot of black ops lately but some times my system would randomly freeze mid-game, i wouldnt be able to turn the system off and the screen would go totally blank with the sound of gunfire in the background, ps3 would start flashing like police sirens(over exaggerating) would have to press the button or flick the switch to reboot, any suggestions/tips/help in the matter? Ty.

If the PS3 freezing problem isn't fixed soon Sony and Treyarch can kiss my future purchases good by. It's time for someone else to make a completitive games to call of duty. If there is one please let me know.

got the ylod today. first time in 3 years. alot of people seem to be linking it to cod black ops. the console is in a very well vented area so over heating should not have been a problem. the processors in my 40gb console can't cope with the game. well peed off

i just bought a ps3 move bundle for my grandson for christmas (had to save for it) he was overjoyed until afterplaying cod black ops. after playing the first level it froze up and now the ps3 no longer works. it tells me a i have corrupt hard drive. i can't afford to get it fixed and he is now out of, not only 3 ps3 games, but the whole system. he is heart broken, i am angry.

Wtf!! So is treyarch or activision going to adress this?!? Do they know about this?!? Because i cant even start up the game (ps3)without it crashi ng. I have the old (fat ps3) version, are they gonna give us are $ back? I havent got the ylod, so i dont want to get another black ops and then fuck up my ps3. So i think we need to start a movement people!!! Because we payed 60 dollars for this shit !!

matt

I got black ops for my ps3 for christmas, and downloaded the 1.05 update. There must be a really serious problem because it freezes every so often. none of my other games do, and i'm pretty unwilling to go back to mw2. treyarch needs to patch their patch so the game doesn't freeze anymore.

BTY its not just the older ps3's it ALL of them, COME ON DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!! I have a new and old ps3 it doesnt matter BLACK-OPS is CRAP!!!!!

Seems like your running and hiding-Give us something, I'll go to every place online that sells the game and put a damper on the big hype this game has received…Dont open the game if you get it for X-mas just take it and back and get a refund, you would get more fun out… Read more »

BLACK-OPS FAILED, the game would be great if you could actually play it. Half the rooms I'm in if not more will lose connection, it might and might not start back, might freeze up, might crash my ps3. When it does this it doesnt matter what your score is it shows a loss. It will also put you in an ongoing game that may have a few seconds left. Its enough to put up with lag switch users and campers. Come on now I paid good money for the game and would like to enjoy it. At this point I… Read more »

This is a bunch of crap. Never had a single problem before the update, NOT ONE problem. Since the update I'm lucky if I can make it through 1 full game without the console either freezing entirely or the "connection interrupted" error.

I'm switching back to MW2 and hopefully these guys can get their shit together

black ops freezing? delete the game from the hard-drive if it’s saved to it. I only use it for zombies but ever since that bullshit new dash on 360 all my games saved to the drive are having offline lag issues or just crashing… wonder if the testers ( if they even exist ) for these updates are wearing a made in china sticker?

If it goes on like this i just stop playing this stupid game, its not worth it, charging so much money but Treyarch didn’t improve at all in 2 years with there whole team! Im really disappointment

Recently, mine has been freezing every multiplayer game until finally now it will not even load past the startup credits. It freezes midway threw the opening and goes to a black screen with the words "please wait" on the bottom right hand corner of the screen and sits there. I have since checked all my other games and bluray movies, and they all work fine. I refuse to play this game until this SERIOUS problem is addressed. There is a good chance I will end up demanding a refund for this game turned $60 paperweight in the end…. I hope… Read more »

BLACK OPS caused freezing on my 1 year old 250GB Slim from day one – the update made no difference. Eventually my PS3 began to switch itself off randomly, at first during BLACK OPS and then during other games. Even when no disc was in it would shut down – can't even stay on long enough to back up. I had no problems before BLACK OPS but the constant freezing/restarting broke my machine within a week.

I'm not having too much trouble. The only thing is host migration and stuff but that always happens on mw2 as well, can get frustrating. Although last night I got stuck at the loading screen, it was "waiting for other players" and I just switched it off. What other long term problems can this lead to? I don't wanna lose my baby!!!!

the same for me, with a phat 60gb, a few problems before the last update but since, I can play 1 game with no freeze, maybe a connection error if i'm lucky, but you can be sure that the second game will froze my ps3. so I decided to stop playing this s**t and wait for an update … and all you guys have to do the same because you CAN NOT let this game/joke YOLD your beloved PS3 🙂 look on the #treyarch mentions on twitter to see how many players are experiencing the problem, its impressive how treyarch… Read more »

just wanted to add my voice to the list. when the game was first released i got the expected server kicks and broken connections.

i have the new 120gb slim ps3. brought black ops and worked great with the exception of maybe one or two crashes in about 1 and a half weeks of non stop playing. HOWEVER after the update black ops freezes every 2 games or so and it also keeps coming up with connection interuppted and cannot connect to host! pisses me off! ALSO YOUR PS3 “WILL” OVERHEAT because of the problem! i suggest if it overheats dont play it until the update otherwise you may be looking at a damaged ps3

The latest update has caused all the crashing problems for me, before that there were the usual 'connection kicks' , when the game freezes most people (including me, I'll now use the reject disc button) are using the power off button which could damage the PS3 and leave you with a big repair bill.

Treyarch and Activision need to issue an URGENT STATEMENT or they should foot the bill to cover all the repairs.

I am running the old fat PS3 with black ops and after the latest update having to restart my ps3 because of the game freezing. Very very disappointed about this. They never should have let infinityward go. They tried the same thing with Call of Duty 3 where activision was the only one involved with development and that one always froze on me as well. I have never had a problem with the COD games that infinityward was involved with.

quick heads up… when your ps3 locks up… dont keep turning it off.. this is not good for the harddrive.. I found another method.. just eject the game and wait a few seconds… it will realize the game is out and will go back to the main ps3 menu… Its the game guys… not your ps3!

Yes, my PS3 is crashing (fat model made in March 2007) with this game. It'll go about an hour with the zombie game before red lighting, and 15-45 minutes in the regular game. It freezes quickly when playing the "Resurection" segment of the game, 10-15 minutes. Big bummer.
