    can't invite friends to party online

  • Anonymous Apr 11, 2009

    I have the same problem. The only way I have been able to invite friends on COD 4 and COD 5 is to enter an online game and then invite my friends when a space becomes available. Playstation network needs to correct this problem. It's very frustrating when you have 4 or 5 friends online and you can't get everyone into the same game. The lobby just doesn't work.

    im on the same boat, go to network setting, make new connection as a custom one, the upnp must be enabled, but it wont let you, sets itself to type 2, which means your router does not support ip fragments, which disables some communication features to others, hense the problems, only way round it is use ethernet not wireless or get a new router.

    I think this might have happened when my sons friend sent invite from a ps4 console.

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


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
