Pachter: No Impact on Treyarch for Black Ops Technical Problems

December 17, 2010 -

WedBush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter says that the technical problems associated with the Windows PC and PS3 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops will have "no impact" on the reputations of developer Treyarch or publisher Activision.

Pachter says that, despite the number of errors the game has had on the platforms and post-patch problems for some users, there will be no backlash from the community because Treyarch is responding quickly to the problems.

Treyarch released a patch this week to address the known issues with the game, but some users are complaining about connection issues still.

Yesterday Treyarch community manager Josh Olin issued a statement on the official site for the game, letting the community know that the company was aware of problems post-patch and working on a solution:

"We are aware that many online players have been experiencing connectivity issues since Tuesday’s patch. We have been working hard to track down the cause and fix them as quickly as we can. We’ve already updated the game with one 'hot fix' since Tuesday’s release that has improved many of those connectivity problems, and we’ve got more coming, so stay tuned."

How many more CoD games are they going to make with that cookie cutter? It's become nothing but noise to me just like Final Fantasy. The people at Treyarch must be sick to death of making the same game over and over again. Thank you corporate publishers for diluting the culture of games with your iterative garbage.

I'm not sure how much you know about the CoD series, but of the latest of the same "cookie cutter" when it comes to multiplayer,Treyarch have only made the latest of the series and "World at War". Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2, the series that made CoD what it is, was by Infinity Ward. Furthermore, the multiplayer has changed. I'm not sure what you or anyone else consider "cookie cutter, but it all depends what counts as keeping the same "cookie cutter" when it comes to changing or not. And clearly the gameplay is such that enough people enjoy the series. Should the fans get complained at as well.

Matthew Wilson@mast I dont know, but I do know it got a cult fallowing here.07/03/2015 - 6:22pm
MastermuneWasn't the Zero Escape series more popular here than in Japan?07/03/2015 - 6:19pm
Matthew Wilson@mast given the game was revealed in the US, I wouldnt be shocked if it was released at the same time.07/03/2015 - 6:15pm
MastermuneI don't trust the big AAA worldwide simultaneous releases though.07/03/2015 - 5:57pm
Mastermune@Infophile I have come to the conclusion that smaller games like zero escape, JRPG's and the like are actually worth preordering sinc they are limited quantities and since they usually release in japan first we know if there are any issues.07/03/2015 - 5:56pm
Infophile@Matthew! Awesome news. I'd preorder on that shout alone if I didn't have a policy against preordering anymore.07/03/2015 - 5:16pm

Matthew Wilson@pnx I am guessing a ddoss since that is what happened to neogaf, but sony needs to do a investment in psn as a whole. steam is still the most reliable and fastest digital platform I use.07/03/2015 - 3:06pm

InfophileOther features to become standard: The ability to remap controls however the hell I want. Quicksave at any time (especially for handheld and mobile games). Plus everything Andrew said07/03/2015 - 10:43am
InfophileRegion-freeing becomes tricky for games with a strong online component though, especially when the servers are run by different branches in different regions.07/03/2015 - 10:41am
InfophileI'm in favor of getting rid of region-locking for any purchased games. I can understand an exception for free, ad-supported games, as many ads are only relevant in certain regions, and it's a ridiculous hassle to get ads for all regions.07/03/2015 - 10:40am
