Call of Duty: Black Ops Gets Hotfix for Online Connectivity

Yesterday, we reported that despite the best efforts from developer Treyarch, it looked like owners of the recently released game Call of Duty: Black Ops for Sony's PlayStation 3 were still seeing some major issues with network connectivity. Namely, while it wasn't the best connection possible right when the game released, it's actually been getting worse as each new patch was downloaded to consoles.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Censored in Germany, International Versions Blocked by Steam

It may not be as controversial as another First Person Shooter (FPS) title that was recently released, but it looks like Treyarch and Activision's upcoming title, Call of Duty: Black Ops, won't be arriving in Germany in its pristine condition. According to PCGames.de, the title has been banned in Germany, which means that a censored version of the title will be landing in the country.

Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops will Feature 3D as an Option

For development studio Treyarch, the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops is a lot of things. First and foremost, though, it's the Call of Duty after Modern Warfare 2, so they know they have a lot of work ahead of them. But Activision obviously has faith in the development house, as they've released popular titles in the past, like World at War.
