Breaking News! Activision confirms PS3 server closure rumour is false!

Following the announcement and statement from Activision’s Support manager Dov Carson we can now scotch the rumours that the Playstation servers will be closed!  

In a statement from Treyarch developer Josh Olin he has corrected the furore that has blown up following the unsanitized quote from Dov Carson. In it Mr Olin states that Carson’s words were taken entirely out of context and that Playstation 3 owners expect the continued support of the Activision and Treyarch teams, as well as look forward with some interest to the upcoming patches for the title. This is what Josh had to say:

                  “PS3 Servers” comments were taken out of context. @Treyarch’s committed to supporting the PS3 community with some great updates on the way.”

As well as getting the green light from Josh Olin, Playstation 3 gamers were also treated to some soothing words from Dan Amrich on his blog to set their troubled minds to rest.  Along with his link to the Treyarch website, Twitter account and prepared statement, Mr Amrich also posted a note from Activision’s ATVI Randolph who also eased the pain of PS3 players everywhere with these kind words: 

ATVI_Randolph from Activision’s Customer Support team also sent out a pair of tweets:

Hi all, I apologize for the misunderstanding yesterday. I can assure you that the Call of Duty: Black Ops servers are not being shut down.

A comment from one of our reps was taken out of context for which I apologize. I’m sorry for any inconvenience/worries this may have caused.

So fear not good gamers of the Sony persuasion for the brave men and women have heard your cry of ‘Medic’ as you lie wounded on the battlefield. Rest assured that a saving angel will be along shortly to heal and tend to your wounds with patches and a healthy dose of additional content.
