172w ago - The latest patch v1.08 for Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 is now live for the PS3 console in Europe, however, users are reportedly encountering freezing problems as a result.
The update contains fixes for the care package and the Elevator glitches as well as the 10th prestige glitch hack, and a US patch is currently in the certification process.
Robert Bowling has Tweeted that they're working on the issues with Sony, to quote:
"However, we are aware of several users reporting freezes once connected to games. We are currently working with SONY to identify the source of this issue."
We've updated the European PS3 version of Modern Warfare 2, including the following fixes:
• Care Package, Emergency Airdrop, and Sentry Gun marker grenades sprint speed normalized.
• Fix for "infinite care package" exploit.
• Sentry Guns: Improved placement detection, preventing cases of Sentry Guns inside geometry.
• Model 1887: Bling using Akimbo and FMJ combination now has same range and damage as non-Bling Model 1887s.
• Improved player collision removing cases of getting into geometry and 'elevators'.
• Fixes to prevent various XP hacks.

Even though I find a lot of the matches on MW2 are pretty crap at the moment, I think I'm still going to stick with it over MAG. That's unless MAG has drastically changed since the last beta, didn't like it as much as I thought I would.
Let you know on a little secret everyone who has been playing modern warfare 2 is going to MAG, why because its one of the best multiplayers to date. Buy MAG, this game is great, xbox lovers wish they had this, if their system could support it hahA!
I thought the same, this game is going to be buggy as hell and laggy as hell, but it isn't its so smooth. Its probably smoother than modern warfare 2 online. Actually i know that for fact its smoother because modern warfare 2 is freezing and has to may hacks to even play that game. IW needs to fix this before their franchise goes down the drain. The party system is amazing also, try mag out for yourself!
So here are some other fixes I found not listed by IW. Matchmaking has been ruined just like Cod:WaW and lag is now one of the main features of the game. In fact its so much involved in the online that they should advertise it on the packaging!!!
Pretty much forcing your self in to a wall/environment within the game which in essence forces you "elevates/elevators you" up above the environment, sort of like skywalk in counterstrike if anyone has ever played.
