We have already reported that gamers have problems with some games on their PS5, which can even lead to graphics errors that are irreversible. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War joins this. More and more players explain that the shooter apparently destroys their consoles.
Does CoD: Black Ops Cold War destroy consoles?
There's a thread on Reddit where more and more Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players share their experiences with the title on PS5. There shouldn't be a regular crash, the console is apparently defective afterwards. Because then suddenly severe graphic errors appear in other titles as well. Even switching off and restarting or a reset to the factory settings do not help.
You might think that this is a problem with the PS5, but there are also reports that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (buy now € 53.99 ) causes severe crashes on Xbox Series X / S. Not so strong that the console is defective afterwards, but it seems to be more due to the game than to the console. So if you play CoD: Black Ops Cold War, then you should be careful. On both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X / S. A patch for the shooter should appear on December 8th. It is not yet clear whether this will solve the problem.
Also, remember that your console needs enough space to stay cool. The PS5 in particular seems to be a bit more sensitive here. Make sure you leave at least six inches of space on all sides. If your console is broken by Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (or another game), then you have no choice but to send it to Sony for repair. This should take about two weeks.
