          -i have opened 2 tickets with customer support. they claim my issue has been resolved when it clearly hasnt and that alone is extremely frusterating. I want to call support and talk to someone but im afraid ill just end up cursing them out. Please fix this

              -2nd Gen 80 gig, 4 USB Fat PS3 (NTSC)

              -No user mods (Sent to sony once to have blu ray laser replaced)


              -Shut down occurs when playing Campaign, Zombies, and Multi player. Zombies: Shutdown occurs at the beginning of round 2. Campaign: Shutdown occurs after ~2 minuts of gameplay (ie not watching cut scenes and/or scripted events). Multi player: Sutdown occurance is variable. Sometimes shutdown occurs 2 minutes into the first match. Other times I can play 1-2 matches. (Note: I can spend quite a lot of time in the menus and create a class)

                      here it is a month in now and i can not get more than 5 mins in and red flashing light appears!  i have called activision and sony and it just turned into a finger pointing match with no explination or even a simple sorry we caused this problem!  looks like all i can do is either ride it out or hope i can make an exchange again and just keep sending good copies of black ops 2 back and let them deal with the hand full of extra copies.


                        i have a 5 year old original 80g with no mods.  never had one problem till nov.13 when black ops 2 gave me my problem than did the new patches for modern warefare 3  and got the same problem there now.



                         in closing i want to let foxhound pro know that i appreciate all the work he is doing to set up these spots for us to vent and helping us get our word out there!     thank you!!!!!!

                            60 4USB Backwards Compatible Ps3No mods, never even opened it.
                            For me it has happened in multiplayer games and 1 bot game before 1.03 patch, i have been able to play for 40 minutes 60 minutes and 23 minutes before patch 1.03. After that patch i played for 10 minutes, all turned into a shut down.
                            No video proof, i didn't know i was supposed to be recording incase my ps3 turned off?
                            No, i have not made a ticket on activisions website, when i try to login it gives me a error every time.
                            I haven't sent a report to sony, i don't know how to do that, but i gladly
                            Here is our old thread.
                            Also, i would like to note that i was having no problems with my ps3 as i stated in this thread. After 3 shutoffs, i waited for the new patch when it came out i tried it. This time it blinked YLOD, luckily it came but on but if i am going to be having problems from this point forward i feel that because shut offs like that are bad for the system and ESPECIALLY one that makes it think it YLOD, that treyarch/activision is reponsible. Some people are saying they have had this with other games, me personally only BO2 i even tested it in the time that i couldn't play and played MW3 for 2 hours, turned if off for like 40 minutes to let it cool, turned on BO2 and 23 minutes later it turned off. This isn't a overheating issue with my PS3 in general if they are overheating because it would have done it in the 2 hours i played MW3, it would be because this new game is pushing my old system to the limit and it wasn't tested. I really hope this gets fixed from what i played of the game it seemed great. But i would hope this issue is fixed before matchmaking problems and things like that because those people can at least play. We waited in line just like them but we cannot play, and may be destroying our systems while trying.

                            Same as before and same as a month ago when the game came out, i feel i am owed a copy for xbox until this is patched, i paid like everyone else. And if it is unpatchable, you guys owe me a new PS3.
