A much needed update v1.06 has hit the Call of Duty Black Ops servers on the PS3. The game has been a target of criticism by PS3 owners, due to some problems that “other versions aren’t having. Basically connection issues and frame rate issues have plagued the game on the PS3 since November. Early indications from the Black Ops PS3 community is that the patch has fixed a number of issues for many players.
But of course there are quite a few players that are still claiming that they have issues that persist. Claiming that the frame rate lag is still terrible and hard freezes are still occurring for some users forcing them to do full reboot of their PS3.
