My PS3 will let me play COD 5 online with anyone when i click "find match", but when i try to invite a friend or when he invites me a box comes up after about 20 seconds syaing "error." Then it basically says that my friends game is no longer available when neither of us did anything. this happens when my friend trys to add me but works for him when he adds other people.

    Same here mate, i can connect to a mate who lives a mile away or so, but i cant connect to my mate who lives just up the road. the mates that plays cod5 a lot with me, we cant get into each other's parties, its really pissing me off. We can invite each other to a game, but we always seem to go into the middle of a match, when we finally get into the same lobby, we always have to go on opposite teams, its really annoying.

My friend and I had the same problem, he just had to sort out his NAT settings. You need a PC to do this. Theres a youtube link:

It just means you have a sort of secret firewall built into your computer. I hope you have XP because I dont know how to sort it out on Vista

My ps3 wont connect to my friends


The problem is your internet is not good enough to host or join their game. There is probably some type of connection problem or their game is full. Hope this helps.

Can't play madden 09 online on ps3


Greetings,

from the opening menu choose online and then either play now, or goto lobby. If you goto lobby choose lobby, (for starters pick my skill level) and then you can click on someones name and invite to a game, or if the invite you it will say so on the scrolling info bar at the bottom of the screen, thier name will also have a lightning bolt next to it if they invited you. click on them accept invite and try and win. my ID is dannmidge on the ps3 if you want to add me and we can play.

Welcome to the servers at call of duty :)
I've got a ps3 and call of duty 4+5, half the fun of the game is playing with a mate and I've had exactly the same problem as you. It just seems to be about trial and error sometimes, have tried connecting like you for over an hour before and then on other days it just connects wth my mate straight away.
Sometimes it helps to join a game(so you can see and hear other players) then invite your mate, if he/she to reply to your invite is quick sometimes you can get in that way.
The only other bit of advice is to try different times of the day as the load on the servers does change throughout the day, apart from that it really is an issue with activision and for me the playstation network
hope it gets better for you

On the Ps3 that isn't working, go into the settings and see if there is something under it that is prevent invitations or friend requests. It will probably be under parental controls or network settings. If someone else hosts the game can that Ps3 join. Also try and get the messed up one connected by ethernet cable and not wireless, it may be cutting out as there are 3 ps3's and probably multiple computers hogging the signal.
