Just a few days after Modern Warfare 3’s release, Infinity Ward patches the title on both Xbox 360 and PS3. Also, Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward’s Creative Strategist shed some light on issues that will be fixed at a later date.
When you fire up Modern Warfare 3, you’ll be notified that you need to update the title with a small patch, 4 MB. Robert Bowling, known as Four Zero Two, explains that the PS3 patch helped resolve “any ‘Out of Memory 14’ errors you may have seen”. Meanwhile, the 360 patch “includes improvements to matchmaking and fix for video uploads on SD [Standard Definition] TVs. Please note, if you’re unable to join up with your friends, then it’s “most likely” caused by the patch. Wait until everyone is on the same version in order to “matchmake” together.
In Future Patches or Hot Fixes
Robert noted that “wall breaching the tanker on Outpost” will be resolved via a hot fix. Cross country matchmaking has also been a notable problem that Robert is aware of. He explained “this may be an issue in smaller countries and are currently evaluating how to best address this for them.”
