Are we referring to the game freezing ps3 when starting?
Ive been playing it all day, without any issue.
Then 15 minutes ago, got an erro message about server being down.
restarted the game, and it frezzes .. update 1.02 Rogero 4.30.
If I sign out of Psn, game starts.
When I then try to get online, server down message again..
Might simply be that they have taken the server down, the game trys to connect to those servers when your connected to PSN and it fails and freezes..
Once tuesday passes and its released, might get a better idea, my copy should arrive then anyway, so I'll be able to play on my OFW ps3 if nothing else.
part of the error message points to this link
Matchmaking services are enabled. All other services are undergoing continued maintenance in preparation for launch (Films, Emblem Editor, CODTV, Leaderboards, Recent Games, etc). Occasional disconnects should be expected.
It may well be that its simply the server up and down causing issues at this stage..
I doubt, Activision tend to let you know if your banned with a message why.

Mind you, this statement says they will ban pirated copies online...
Any user who illegally acquires Call of Duty: Black Ops II content is subject to penalty.
First offense: User will be permanently banned from playing the game online, will have their stats & emblems reset, and will be blocked permanently from appearing in leaderboards.
Console users in possession of illegally acquired content will also be reported to console manufacturers. PC users on Steam will be reported to the Steam enforcement team.
Cant blame them if they do.
