    Default Activision could turn off PS3's Black ops servers...

    I doubt it would ever happen but it seems Activision and Treyarch are so fed up of being blamed for the PS3's problems with Black ops they may just shut it down.

    Anyone with eyes can see the games single player mode runs like a bag of crap on the PS3 compared to xbox. But it also seems the online side is just as bad..

    CLICK

    Added to the news that GT5 is sometimes dropping to 19 frames per second compared to Forza3's 60fps constant and you have to ask....Why would anyone own a PS3?

    I have both PS3 and 360.. I prefer the PS3 as its better hardware.. Saying that, I refused to get BLOPS as WAW was utter ****!

    The reason for games being so bad on the PS3 is a combination of lazy developers and tricky hardware..

    Perhaps if they spent a little more time developing things then they wouldnt get blamed for stuff. Their customer service also sucks ass, I emailed them over a week ago about the issue I had with everything getting reset back to zero after the game froze whilst connecting and Ive yet to have the courtesy of a reply.

    Always blame the devs eh.. I think you'll find that it's actually down to hackers such as Geohot who cracked the ps3's security and therefore made running exploits in games easier to do... The fact that Blops is practically unplayable on the PS3 is not the devs fault, Its a hardware jailbreak that allows those who are unable to play games properly due to lack of skill to cheat and ruin things for others..

    Sony are responsible for issuing and maintaining SDK's to anyone who wants to make a game for the PS3, So devs can only programme to the guidlines set by Sony, Same with Microsoft and Nintendo, same thing as Apple with its apps, the game is sent to Sony / PSN for QA testing, they are the ones who say whether it can run on PSN or not, If its not upto scratch then it should have been rejected..

    Activision has already stated that they cannot fix Blops and MW2 on PS3 as its a hardware issue caused by the jailbreak thats created the problems..

    "Games rely on the security of the encryption on the platforms they're played on," Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling explained on the game's official forums. "Unless the security exploit itself is resolved on the platform ... updates to the game through patches will not resolve this problem," he admits, adding, "at this time, we do not have the ability to restore or adjust individual stats."
    The blame totally lays squarely at the feet of the many glitchers CoD games attract..

    The good thing about Black Ops is that if you must get a fix of run n gun action then try Combat Training on Hard or Veteran, You can invite mates to join you..

    I have an offline only xbox, and and online ps3 320gb slim - I used to play black ops on the xbox when it was online and constantly had problems playing with my friends, always got kicked out of games and had connection failures....i never have any problems with the ps3 at all online with it, i'd definitely say it is more reliable online for me Only turned the xbox on once since i've had it!

    In all honesty, I think that this could be the downfall of the COD series..

    My friends and I all play BC2 as it is SO much better!
