    Randy D. Tech Specialist Randy D. Reporting!

    Randy D.
    Thank you for contacting Activision Customer Support. How can I help you?

    Victor
    Hello, I want to report an issue with MW3. I play on PS3 and my gamer tag is XXXXXXXX. Can I provide you a link to what my issue is that has blown two of my surround speakers?

    Randy D.
    Yes, please.

    Victor
    That is not my video

    Victor
    But it is exactly what has happened on occasion to me

    Victor
    It has happened to lots of others I know also

    Randy D.
    Okay, one moment while I view this, please?

    Victor
    Ok

    Victor
    I will type more while you watch it

    Randy D.
    Wow.... that was pretty heavy...

    Victor
    This has happened to me on all 3 consoles in my house

    Victor
    Since day one of the game (mw3) coming out

    Victor
    It only happens on this game

    Randy D.
    Okay.... I belive that there was a patch sent out recently to fix sound issues for the PS3. Let me double check on that, okay?

    Victor
    Is there anything that can be done to compensate me for my loss? I am sure that you can figure out that my speakers are turned up loud when I play.

    Victor
    This has happened since the patches have come out.

    Victor
    On the official activision forums we have labeled this an "Audio EMP". Sometimes sound will come back on, others you have to restart the entire console for sound to work again,

    Randy D.
    Okay, sir, thank you for holding....

    Randy D.
    when was the last update that you received?

    Victor
    OK

    Victor
    this past weekend

    Randy D.
    Okay, and the sound thing happened after that?

    Victor
    Yes, and according to the forums it is happening more as people have begun to really talk about it a lot.

    Randy D.
    I'll bet. i'm really sorry for the inconvenience.....

    Victor
    There is no rhyme or reason as to when, and if, it happens. Scares the crap out of everyone, including the dogs.

    Victor
    So what can be done about compensation for my speaker damage? Thankfully I have not lost some of those super expensive headphones like lots of others have, but it is not my fault that the audio is corrupt on MW3.

    Randy D.
    As far as the issue goes, we are currently looking into this and trying to come up with a fix for it.....

    Victor
    Are you checking with a supervisor about compensation?

    Randy D.
    Yes. Here is the official word. We can check into it for you, but can

    Randy D.
    'I'm sorry, can't guarantee anything.

    Victor
    How will you contact me in regards to the decision?

    Randy D.
    You will be contacted via the email provided here.

    Randy D.
    XXXXX@XXXXX.com

    Victor
    Thank you, how soon should I expect a response before having to contact you all again?

    Randy D.
    You should get a response in about 1 week. Most usually within 48 hours. So there is your window of time.

    They laughed at me when asking for compensation, I say we need to get a class action lawsuit going.  Activision and Infinity Ward think they can brush this off and forget it's happening?  Sorry guys, bull ****.  You will give me some kind of compensation, or I'll take it myself.

    it thought it wa sjust me and that there was something wrong with my hook up..

  • 33. Re: Audio EMP!!!

    i think if you've played this game for as many hours as most of us have than we have nearly all heard this annoying noise like many i first thought it was my headset blowing a speaker relieved that it wasn't for some of not so fortunate but let's be honest the only way it will be fixed is if someone ends up with damage to their ears and they file a law suit against them is this problem only on the ps3 or on all formats does anyone know

  • 34. Re: Audio EMP!!!

    I got the hardcore instadeaftoanyonewithaheadsetorloudTVwhichmaymakeyouhaveamigraine sound a few days ago.

     

    I wanted to break the disc so badly for making me jump during a good game I was having.

     

    BUT TEH KIDZ WHO WNTED DAT INFEKTION PWAYLIST R PRYORITIE.

     

    Someone please take over this franchise.

  • 35. Re: Audio EMP!!!

    Yep it's a ridiculously LOUD hideous noise that comes through the speaker's randomly duing a game. It has happened to me approx 5-10 times since the game was realeased. I was never able to pin-point any reason but I'm 100% positive it's the game. When it happens I mute the volume for the rest of the game. Normally it stops going into the next match. I can easily see how this would ruin speaker's if they are turned up because I keep volume pretty low when i play and this noise still comes through very LOUD.

    Keep bumping this thread until they get the hint!

  • 37. Re: Audio EMP!!!

    Bumping a topic on the user forums is not a way to get the point across to the developers. get in contact with support is the best method, if many people get in contact with support only then will they see this as a issue (the same with the lag comp issue).

     

    Now bumping the topic to get the heads up to the other users to get ahold of support should be this topics only reason of existance.

     

    Oh BTW here is one of the videos of someone blowing up a speaker with AC electric http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wApMsYy8Tl8 (not my video, nor will i ever do something this stupid), the above video is what i was compairing to when the sound glitches out in game.

    I have no idea what you just said

  • 39. Re: Audio EMP!!!

    insta deaf to anyone with a headset or loud TV which may make you have a migraine.

     

    I understood everything but the last part (BUT TEH KIDZ WHO WNTED DAT INFEKTION PWAYLIST R PRYORITIE.) i think he was just complaining about the game on the last bit about them runniung the game franchise into the ground.
