Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3 call of duty 4

Hey Bro I have a question that I hope you may be able to help me with. My problem is that When I get into the lobby I cannot connect to any matches. I get the message "getting match quality "and then "waiting for 3 more players to join" and cant get on. If a friend invites me into a game It tries to commect and then blacks out and says could not connect to host. This sucks bad because every once in a while ill connect long enough to play for a few min. I have charter high speed internet broadband and a wireless router/modem which is connected with an ethernet cable. I have called sony, my ISP and Infinity ward and havnt had much luck. All this started after the new ps3 update to version 2.17. I need some help so any info or suggestions would be awesome. oh and once I have connected to a match I can navigate the lobby with no problem until I turn off the ps3 for the day and try it later I then cant get on. I have opened my ports by port forwarding. It seems easier to get on in the afternoon or mornings. Thanks for your help

    Yeah I did the 2.20 update and nothing has changed.... I dont have a roommate so its just me using my broadband... I have the fastest sold its 10 mbps... If I turn my ps3 on and go into the cod4 lobby and let it sit there for like 2 hrs or more I can connect by leaving the match I was trying to get into and going back in. This is without even leaving the lobby. Once I have connected to one match im good for as long as i want to play...but as soon as I go out of the game it starts the process over again...Thanks for any help you have.. This is frustrating

    I was also thinking could my ISP be limiting my bandwith and blocking my online gaming....Its easier during the morning or afternoon during the week to get on......harder to get on and takes longer on weekends or evenings

    I don't know what happened to my previous posting, dang it. Anyways, I just wanted to mention (from experience) that if your roommate is anything like mine (likes to download 1TB of porn at any given moment) then you may be experiencing a bandwidth problem. How fast is your internet and are you sharing it?

Having trouble joining group on Call of Duty MW2 wont let me join with my friends

Usually, this is due to your friends inviting you then they enter a game so you can't join their lobby. Try talking to your friend at the same time and make sure they dont enter a game so you can get to their lobby once they've invited you.

Im having problems excepting game invites from friends on call of duty can u help.

Hey there,
this can be from multiple problems actually, from having the player requesting you as an "avoided" player or simply having the game lobby full and unable to join. if there is an avoided player in the lobby you are trying to join this can often lead to you not being able to join the lobby. Other more advanced problems could be caused by router/modem problems and/or restrictions set in place on them, but that is definitely beyond me. you would have to contact your internet service provider.
One other thing, see if you can invite them to a game with you in it and see if they can accept. Hope this helped,
