This happened to me as well. The first time, my PS3 seemed to hang during the second update. The next time, I quit the update because I thought the system was stuck in an infinite loop. Turns out that it isn't.

Start from the beginning by deleting the game data file from the PS3 hard drive. Boot up HSG:OOB and wait for it to install. This takes a while, as I think it is something like a 5GB install. When it is finished, go into the game and select the Online option.

You'll see the "Checking version" message followed by a couple of status bars. Depending upon your connection, the update can take anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour. Just walk away and come back to it. When it is finished, you'll be told to press the PS button to quit and then restart the game.

Once back on the main screen, you should see a version # that wasn't there before, on the right side of the screen. You might want to write this number down.

Go back into the Online option. Once again, you'll see a "Checking version" message followed by a couple of status bars. It looks the same as the last update, so you might think this is an error. It isn't. Apparently, rather than updating once to the latest version, the game is going through a series of updates (2 or 3 of them). It's like taking Windows 95, updating it to Windows 98, then updating it to Windows ME, and finally updating it to Windows XP.

Wait for the update process another time or two. For me, each subsequent update took less time. Something like 20-30 minutes for the last one. When you are asked to quit and restart the game, check the version on the main screen. It should be different than what you wrote down after the first update. For me, my updates ended with ver. 090311201. Finally, I was able to select online and it didn't check the version but asked for my login info.

Whenever they update the game, I'm sure we'll have to download the update once again...but hopefully each new update will be minor. But those people who purchase the game brand new will end up going through even more updates with each passing year.

How can i get the online patch to use my characters now that online is no longer available


The patch should download automatically when your system is connected to the internet. It won't bring back your characters, but will fix any issues that they had to patch.

My son turned his PS3 off during a system update and now everything he tries to play won't let him and says error code 8003051e. What do I do to fix this problem?


Ok what I recommend doing is these steps and you should be gaming again:
1. Start Ps3 and in the title menu to Account Management. 2. Click Account Management. 3. Go to System Activation. 4. DO Ps3 System NOT "Psp System". 5. Choose game then select deactivate ps3. (Why? so that way you can log in as your profile later.) 6. Once done go to System Settings. 7. Go down until you see Restore PS3 System. 8. Click it and select yes. (Once you say yes it will restore your ps3 to factory settings, It will take either 2 hours - 8 Hours. Depending on how much memory it has built in.) 9. Once done Download newest updates and let it download. 10. Once complete you should be playing video games in no time. Have Fun Gaming.

Trying to get on line with three ps3 and three call of duty games. one ps3 goes online but the other two are down loading for hours


Okay 1 goes but the other 2 dont maybe you have to turn on all the ps3 after they all connected so the 1st has to wait for the others to connect right? dont wait let the 2nd one download and then after its done let the 3rd one download and after all log on and you should be able to play or get multiple wireless connections.
