  • ScOott

    This is the huge patch? I was expecting so much more..

  • Mick


    • Kinda like that classic ugly ass look ^^ Goldeneye was/is still a great game.

      • Mick

        Yeah I still admire the classic look. I can’t remember exactly, but there was this golden eye game on the computer that I played and we had to stay stealthy going past trucks and stuff in a snowy environment. That golden eye game was my favorite.

  • Guest#1

    Thank god they buffed the shotguns -_-

    • e

      Should’ve been deleted from the game only leaving semi-autos… Shotguns are the root of all bullshit in cod

      • Michael:Bulletclub

        Snipers, then lmgs, then shotguns

        • Swyd

          Hell no, it takes skill to snipe unless your a fucking cheap as sitting in a head glitch hard scoping the whole game

        • Jon

          said the kid that doesn’t have the skill to use a sniper or a shotgun.

          • Michael:Bulletclub

            >call of duty

    • It’s absolutely fucking rediciously sad their still buffing the Argus man

      • Bmeowmix

        If it’s anything like the last patch a lot of these updates are just restating what happened in a hotfix, so I think we’re safe (for now)

  • 1 GB Up/Down fiber.. And im downloading at 5-10 mbit/sec.
    FFS, Buff the servers SONY!!

    • Psychomaggot105

      I hear you. My brothers ps4 is like that but it’s fine on his Xbox.

      • All the money from those PSN subscriptions.. And still the PSN servers runs like ass. But hey, It´s SONY. Thats one thing i like with MS high spec servers, WHEN it works, It works perfect.

      • Anthony Jr Gonzalez

        Why are you guys talking about the ps4 this is for ps3, most of the comments dont even relate to the patch notes only to some random thing that doesnt make any sense!

    • Logic Chief

      upgrade to a xbox

      • CodToughGuy

        why? It takes you guys 30 days to download and only takes us about 2 hours

        • i3mchucky

          took me 15 minutes to download 50mb dlc

        • Siftblade

          Lol cheeky bastard

        • Robert

          Woah hell no it doesnt. I downloaded Gears of War 3 with Backwards Compatability, and it only took a day for 44 Gigabytes

          • Sol Malus

            You realize PS4 gets the DLC 30 days before Xbox One, right?

            So it does technically take a fuck-ton longer, aka 30 days longer, to download on Xbox One. Why switch to Xbox when everything comes out 30 days later?

          • Kobrah

            ^^this guy, LMAO ?

        • Robert

          30 days is a massive exaggeration and even though PS4 seems better, it really is not

          • CodToughGuy

            30 days for dlc is a exactly how much longer you have to wait. No exagerations

        • Michael Owen Caffrey

          What i downloaded everyone of my fames to my external hardrive and it took me about an hour and 20 minutes besides we start the download shut th console off and it downloads faster
          And as a small bonus patches and updates download while the xbox is off as long as its pluged in
          So stop hateing on us and go play youre dlc

  • New record spike.. .. For a split second^*

  • quentin thomas

    about time we get weapon updates

  • Money Boy


    • Kobrah

      Why what?

  • GinsuVictim

    I wonder if they fixed the rock climbing exploit on Aquarium.

    Thanks to patches, the game has improved quite a bit on last gen, so much so that I bought the 360 version after having played the PS3 port for a while for free. The 360 version runs pretty good now, while the PS3 version is slightly behind.

    • Hotdog

      Still kick out during matches with bullshit reasons. Or game just started get some kills and kicked out. Its on PS 3

  • Jason_88

    So this is the patch with the dlc included ? Will it come out at 3am eastern time, 12 pacific???

    • Sol Malus

      It’s already out.

    • GinsuVictim

      This is the PS3 patch, so NO.

  • shadowguy14

    Who cares?

    • GinsuVictim

      There are a ton of last gen players. I play on both 360 and PS3 and never have issues finding a game.

      • Hotdog

        Never get into a lobby and when the bar is loading for the match you kicked out with lost connection

        • GinsuVictim

          The 360 version rarely has this issue thankfully. It’s part of the reason I bought it and stopped playing the PS3 version.

          • Hotdog

            A good choice then. The matchmaking on PS 3 is horrible. I hate fact that I dont get my full XP when I get kicked out during the match or lost connection to host because rage quite. I am going 2 buy this weekend a PS 4 rip PS 3

  • Daniel Mertens

    download in 20 min 🙂

  • APN

    Does the game still freeze after 40 mins playtime?

  • None

    What was that crap about fixing crashes?? Still a constant issue with lobbies and lag.
