Activision may close PlayStation Network Black Ops servers

In response to ongoing connection issues and vocal customer criticism, a spokesperson for Activision has told an angry PlayStation 3 owner that the publisher may shut down Call of Duty: Black Ops’ PlayStation Network servers.

Senior support representative Dov Carson replied to blogger Jason Koblovsky’s complaints by advising that Activision are prepared to close the PSN servers.

“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,” he wrote.

Carson suggested to Koblovsky that the latter return his Black Ops disc to Activision, offering a “one time courtesy” exchange for another title, another platform’s version of Black Ops, or an unopened disc to return to a retailer.

Sister studio Infinity Ward also seems to be giving up on Sony’s network, laying the blame for Modern Warfare 2’s security issues at the platform holder’s door.

Not gonna happen. If they do the game might as well be exclusive to Xbox.

It's not activision's fault and no update can fix this problem. The problem lies within Sony, the ps3 hack crippled the ps3 and did more bad than good. Sony lost

Not really, PS3 has really outed some lazy developers over the last 4 years....Valve admitted they were slacking, as did other big companies that had inferior PS3 ports out of laziness and unwillingness to learn how to program for the cell.

Shows Activisions mentality, launch a game, milk consumers out of money for a slightly different product from last year and then move forward almost immediately while providing optional, expensive DLC and then recycle the process. EA does the same, but at least the quality of their games is always pretty good across the board aside from the Madden titles. Activison has the same process for all Spider-Man titles, Guitar Hero titles, inevitably the DJ Hero franchise, and the Tony Hawk franchise. It's sad really that this is COD's fate. Sure, every couple of years theres a slightly better Spider-Man game and DJ Hero is riding high right now, but everything else coming out of that company is a joke and an insult.

You working for Activision?

The fact that the PS3 is hacked has got NOTHING to do with their s**tty servers.
They COULD fix this if they wanted too.

Morons, read the articles as they explain in detail why they can't really fix it nor do anything about this problem not even via just updates. Kids

Activisions response:

Well I have nothing else to offer and I too follow forums and have many friends who play and enjoy the game for all of its features. As an avid gamer, I would also disagree with any legalities involving a single aspect of a game as online experience may change at any time. 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.

In any event, if you would like to send your game disc into us, we can either;

a) Exchange for a sealed (unopened) copy of the game that you can take back to the retailer

b) Swap for another platform

c) Exchange for another Activision title of equal or lesser value.

These are the options that we are able to offer to you as a one time courtesy.

Let us know how you would like to proceed.
Where does it "explain in detail why they can't really fix it nor do anything about this problem not even via just updates" ?
