If you picked up the latest and arguably most popular game of the year, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, then you probably have experienced some technical issues with it. Users of both the Xbox 360 and PS3 have complained about severe online multiplayer issues, as well as problems with unlockables. If you check out the Modern Warfare 2 forums on the developers website, you’ll find numerous posts about PS3 players being unable to invite friends to matches, and unable to unlock trophies. Concurrently, many 360 users have complained about the matchmaking function not working, thus not allowing them to join random games, as well as achievements also not unlocking.
Infinity Ward has addressed the issue on PS3 and fourzerotwo(Robert Bowling) posted on his twitter that a patch is being worked on and should be up by Friday. No word yet on whether or not the 360 issues will also be addressed, but our guess is if IW wants to continue making money they will be.
Remember the days when you could purchase a game and right out of the case it worked without needing firmware updates or patches? Yeah those were the days.
