Black Ops 2: PS3 gamers report "freezing, server not available" and other issues (Updated)

It seems like PS3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is plagued lots of issues and bugs, According to numerous report coming out from official Call of Duty forum.

Black Ops 2One of the major issue gamers are reporting is FREEZING. As per reports, Black Ops 2 is freezing while updating, playing in single-player, loading the game in multiplayer and many more. Not even these, freeze issue is reported even while creating an emblem.

Second issue is unable to connect to a game (not even multiplayer). Everytime PS3 gamers tries to connect they are greeted with a message "Servers Not Available". One affected gamer reported that he is unable to play online even after trying for massive "FOUR" hours.

Furthermore, even when the game lobbies are full, gamers are greeted with an error message that "More Players are needed to balance teams".

On all these issues Treyarch's David Vonderhaar said, "Not everyone has an issue with the PS3 freezing,"

"I'm a paltry level 10, but have not frozen once."

We will update the post as soon as we get to hear more on this issue either from Treyarch or Activision.

What issues are you facing with your copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 PS3?. Let us know in detail about it in the comment section below.

UPDATE:

Activision has just issued a press statement stating, Black Ops 2 development team are very much aware of freeze and connectivity issues faced by PS3 gamers, and fix for it is in development. Check out HERE what exactly Activision tweeted.

black ops2 servers are constantly down and wont let me join multiplayer, all who preordered at gamestop have an upcoming double xp weekend.. and thats going to go to waste unless they fix this problem immediately. nice to sit there and advertise something and brag about how good your product is then not follow through.. if it was going to have these problems then maybe it wasnt quite ready for release was it TREYARCH/ACTIVISION. next time maybe a couple of days in the production room checking for even a single problem with the game?

Have not been able to play a multiplayer match for over 24 hours now. Sadly, they won't compensate us for our inability to play because they don't have to. Plus it's Activision and Treyarch, they could care less about you as long as you buy the game, they've already got your money. Don't expect any compensation because you won't be getting any

I understand that it's a new game and there are some flaws with the final product. So with that said I'm going to say to everyone on here.... Stop bitching about call of duty and how "worthless" it is. You spent your money on a product because you like it so shut the f*** up. Just because of a few problems everyone want's to jump ship then f****** keep it to yourselves. Noone cares if that is the last COD game you ever buy. Second I would like to confirm here that zombies matches have a long drawn out waiting for match to begin with 10 minute wait in between. Multiplayer matches were doing the same but with the "waiting for more players" long drawn out waiting as well, and Looking at the player cards would cause my system to freeze after spending time on that. Made it to lvl 25 before the multiplayer error message was constantly keeping me from actually playing and that has been continuous since about 11:30 this morning. Good luck with the patch, but don't rush to us with a half assed patch either.

I am lvl 21. This started to happen last night around 1am.. I didn't think of it much and started playing zombies..played couple of games and went to sleep. This morning around 10am I started playing, went to multiplayer and tried joining a lobby and was greeted with that horrid "error" message, I gave it about 5-6 tries but no luck. Went online to see what the fix is or if anyone else is having issues. Meanwhile, I shut down my Internet connection, reset everything etc but to no avail. Now, I am haunted even in my sleep, "Error- An error occurred while going to sleep, please try again", lol wtf?? The issue is, well, can't join lobbies, as soon as, I try to join the screen flickers and sends me to "Multiplayer" main page. Then I thought maybe they (game developers) wised up and want people to play/finish single player campain before jumping straight into the online action. So I played single player up to the part where you have protect A, B and C points via the drone etc. Then I jumped into multiplayer to give it another shot and SOB gave me the same message. Then I jumped into "League" and god d*mn it, I got kicked out of literally every match where my team/and me were kicking major arse...but just my luck, never got kicked when we were having our arses handed to us lol. So freekin' frustrating, connection issues, random freezes, minor glitches/errors. I expected this when Socom came out, but they came out after like ~6 yrs and it was a different game developer.. Come on TreyArch/Activision, this is a joint cry for help from all the suffering COD players throughout the world. This is not our internet because people from different countries, with different ISPs, different time zones are having the same issue, and plus before, when a game did this we would get kicked out of our PSN and that's because THAT was related to the individual's ISP problem. BTW, I was on another site and saw even the people who have XBoxs are experiencing the same problems. Thanks, PSN- RapidShotz

It the biggest waste of time, Black Ops 2 really takes the piss, this is day 2 and im ready to throw the F***ing game out of the window. it is a shear waste of good money not being able to conect to the multiplayer games and if i can it is only through joining a freind session or world champions. WTF is going on, this really needs to be fixed or people will be demanding money back

I've experienced all the issues listed too. System froze once, matchmaking fails constantly, dropped connections etc. Got a decent amount of game time in, but now can't get in at all because I've got the error message about the server. Whatever Vonderhaar says, the problems are widespread. That guy is an ass. He'll just say the PS3 users aren't being properly respectful in their complaints to deflect from the fact that his studio doesn't seem capable of having a clean launch on the ps3 platform.

The reason they are getting the "ERROR: The Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 Server is not available at this time. Please try again later or visit http://www.callofduty.com/blackops2/status for updates." error is because they have been banned like me. i got banned for signing out... -_-

I got Black ops 2 on the midnight release. Since I got home I have played 0minutes online. First after I downloaded the 1.02 update I was unable to launch the game because it froze as soon as it tried to laid the game(the load Wimbledon on the bottom right) so after hours of messing around with it. I switched accounts and it now lets me load the game ONLY when I am not signed in the the ps3 network. But once I get to the MP play online part I get black ops 2 servers unavailable every time and I am still yet to play online. So I am still playing MW2. Very very upset.

Tis is what happens when a Company gets greedy and is releasing the game way before its even ran through, And wtf is Dan Vanderharddouche talking about yes it " not everyone is experiencing freezing" nukkah shutthe fuck up it is for eveyone ive seen online complained about this issue. All theyre after now is Hyping up the game in pre release events and getting high off of the nerds coming out and getting brainwashed by these pigs, Mw2/3 has been definately doing better work with their servers and gameplay Bo2 is a knockoff halo. as a a matter in fact the game currently wont even go online multiplayer . zombies works online though, garbage servers whats vanderhaars reply to this?

I got my Hardened Edition at the midnight release... Have yet to plat a FULL game. I hardly have hit the halfway point in a match. My PS3 completely freezes. I thought it was my connection for some reason, nope. MW3 works just fine & doesn't freeze it. It really pisses me off that I paid the extra money for hardened especially and I can't play shit! I'm thinking it was a waste of money now. Should've waited to rent it maybe. MW3 welcomes me back with open arms. <3

The same issues happened on the last Black Ops so you would have thought they would have fixed all of the problems before releasing this game.

I had the day off work to play Black Ops 2 then having to spend more time resetting my PS3 than playing the game due to it freezing all the time, and telling me there was no conection. Come on Treyarch get a grip and fix these issues as it is taking the piss.

Can't get into a multiplayer lobby, was fine earlier in the day but seems like when the schools let out, something must have crashed. Buddy can't complete the update issued by Treyarch. Pretty Mickey Mouse to not be able to accommodate updates and mp lobbies.

Bought it yersterday at midnight and played all night. The only bug was : 11 players in a lobby and it was saying «Need more players to balance teams». It was not THAT bad. Today it never worked. Crashing on launch (the loading Treyarch Icon freeze and I need to restart the PS3) or if I pass that point it always says «Error, server unaivalable at this moment»... WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!! I still want to try to try to join a game of being invited just in case it can bypass the bug. I FUCKIN WANT TO PLAY.... YOU SHOULD COMPENSATE WITH FREE DLC (mappacks!!!).
