In recent news it has been discovered that Activison is being sued by a UK consumers group called 'Gamers Voice" which was set up by UK MP Tom Watson. It has recently stated that Activsion is using PS3 and PC players as Bug testers and glitch finders since it's release as after the recent patch that was ment to fix the PS3 and PC version it infact made it worse. Gamers Voice took a group of PS3 and PC games of CODBLOPS and compaired it to the XBOX version of CODBLOPS and found that the XBOX had no problems. When it came to the PS3 and PC versions of the game they had found that the game had multiple lag issues, constant server drop outs even through the hoster was right next to them, Constant host migrantions and at one point the entire game crashed.

Since then Gamers voice has stated

"Clearly, CODBLOPS was the one of the biggest, if not the biggest release of last year, which obviously leads to more people playing and more chances for bugs to be found. Our view is that it doesn't matter how big a game is, it should not be released 'unfinished' or with bugs that make the game unplayable,"

and also stated

"Problems arrise [sic] when, in the case with CODBLOPS, entire sections of the PS3 and PC gaming community are apparently being used as game testers for an extended period after a game's release, yet being asked to pay for the privilege," it continued. "This is not a tenable way to treat us as consumers of video games and it will not be tolerated."

Unfourntly Activision couldnt be reached for comment and most likely will not state back.
