Activision Threatens To Shut Down Black Ops PS3 Servers

There’s been enormous vocal criticism concern the PS3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops, with the bulk of the criticism stemming from connection problems with the game. Now a spokesperson for Activision has told a customer who goes by the name of Jason Koblovsky that Activision holds the right to shut down its Black Ops PS3 servers at anytime it wants.

That’s what senior Activision support representative Dov Carson told the blogger, even offering him a free game on another platform.

“The publishers have the right to shut down the servers for their game at any time as well which based on the number of reported posts from users may be a viable solution over the free PSN,” Carson wrote.

Apparently Infinity Ward’s having the same problems with PS3, laying the blame for Modern Warfare 2′s security, or the lack thereof, solely on PSN and Sony’s now hacked PS3.

    The problem with IW statement is that those hacks were in the game way before the ps3 got hacked. So stop trying to point the finger. You made a crap game on a console and you just admit it.

    sigh, what has the world come to!?
    when i said customer service has gone down the shitter lately they did not have to prove it to me!
    we spend our hard earned cash on their games, put up with all the bugs, put up with the crappy port, put up with the late DLC, and this is how they say thanks!?
    if i was that guy i would say heres my copy back you can shove it up your a$$ and you can bet this will be the last activision game i ever buy if thats how your going to say thanks for your support!
