no, defcon one is the worse you could possibly get. When I just looked XBox and PS are on defcon 4, and Wii and PC are one 1. Sometimes if you refresh the page a tiny line flashes up- i viewed the pages coding and supposidley to them Xbob (which i hear IS working) and PS say that all is green and they are online. the red means that they are not online. which does not make since because black ops isnt working live on my PS3, i dont have any MW games so maybe those are working now? anyone have them that can varify that? if those work then it would seem like BO would be back up soon, latest tomorrow morning, but thats just what I would think- dont hold me to any of this!

yeah i just talked to support at activision, he told me that they just got that up and running, but could not give a time frame for the rest. Which I undertsand because if it took as little as 2 minutes after they estimate it you know how many little kids on here would be going ape SH**! haha but good news they are making progress, it would be more of a concern if everything was still down. I only have Black Ops so I wont know when WW would be up, but i bet when thats up BO will be up and running as well. Progress is all we can hope for and thats what their doing

no ones giving an answer. I asked if online mode would be back by BO2 release date, and the man was unsure-but for liability purposes he is most likely unable to give a time frame even if he did know it. MW is all back I believe since today, so they ARE making progress, just hang in tight. I would think for the popularity Black Ops holds over the others, there is more to fix with probably larger serves and things. I want to say I can guarentee they would have it fixed by the 13th of Nov, because that would kill their sales to have the network unresponsive when a game comes out everyone is dying to try out.

So moral of all this, they have made progress connecting other games within the past 24 hours, so its only a matter of waiting a little bit more until Black Ops is running at high speed. Sorry theres no time frame, I tried my best to receive one but could not.
