I am now on my 2nd PS3 and 2nd copy of Black Ops since the game came out. You guys are in for a great story so let me start from the beginning...
I bought my first copy of BO the day it came out and played it online and offline for almost 2 weeks with 0 problems. Suddenly nothing worked, neither online MP nor campaign, but my other games worked fine. I took the game back to the store and exchanged it for a new one thinking the disc was deffective, but the new game had the same issues. Online MP won't even let me select a game mode; they remain dark as if they're all locked. Zombies freezes in the library. Campaign goes black and freezes after the intro movie on the first level. Thinking my PS3 must be broken, I bought a brand new one since I found a good deal. I came home expecting to finally be able to play the game, but again it had the same problems. I took the disc to a friends house today and everything works- online and offline. I have tried everything I can think of. I have gotten a new game AND a new system, I tried a wired connection, I tried a different tv in a different room of the house closer to the wireless router, full system restores, EVERYTHING... The problem can't be the PS3- it's brand new. It can't be the disk- brand new and works on friend's PS3. Can't be my internet connection- I can browse the internet and play all other games online. The only other possiblity I can think of is that Treyarch or PSN banned my IP Address from BO and only BO. Idk if this is possible, but if that is what happened I can't think of a reason why. I have never done anything to earn a ban from PSN, I'm 100% sure of that. Even if my IP Address is blocked that doesn't explain why I can't play campaign mode. I'm going to try bringing my PS3 to my friend's house and connecting to his internet this weekend; maybe that can help explain this. Connecting to a different internet source is the one thing I can think of that I haven't tried (and at this moment it's not available to try). If that fails I don't know what to do. I don't even know who to blame...Treyarch, Playstation, or both? My guess is Treyarch, but who knows... Any suggestions? Is my house just cursed? Btw from searching online I don't seem to be the only one experiencing this, though it does seem rare. Unfortunately, none of those people have received any help...hopefully I'm luckier. Thanks and sorry for the long post
WoW what a story man . . . .
ok for one I think it is CoD makers . they fail with CoD black Ops in my mind cuz they really need to STOP P2P set up of on line play they broke records in sales with Black Ops . They can afford to get servers for the game
ok lets try something new then man Lets try this to see if your banned by name from the game . . . . Make a new name on the PSN and see if you can play the game on any mode . from there man let me know what happens i will try to find a way to help you fix this issue . . . .
thanks skizzleforizz. at least it's nice to know I'm not the only one experiencing this problem. I just got a new router so I'll try it again right now. I was also planning on bringing the PS3 to a friend's house to c how that works. Please keep me updated and I will do the same! Any idea why this is affecting campaign not just online MP?
it works on the new router! this still doesn't explain why I could play other games online or why campaign didn't work though. I still think this must be Treyarchs fault since Black Ops was the only game to have a problem. Somehow it screwed up its conncection only to black ops i guess...
