Black Ops is very finnicky about their matchmaking servers. First you need to make sure that your router is set to an open NAT type. Type 3 is kind of restricted, but will let you join most games. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

if you are using a wireless connection the signal may be to weak. if not you can try deleting your game and save data. you will lose any single player saves you will also have to re download any map packs you purchased. the game should also do an update when you load again after deleting the game and save.

Try disabling the media server connection in network settings. If that doesnt work then power cycle your modem and router for a couple minutes.

I try to send my friend a game invite and when he tries to join it said session unable to join


Do a connection test and make sure that your NAT Type is 2, any other number will cause issues with games with friends. If its any number than 2 do a factory reset on your modem/router and if that doesn't do it then go into your modem/router configuration and set your PS3 as a DMZ host and that should take care of the problem.

When i am in the main lobby i send a invite but my friend is saying that the game session is no longer availible. We have tried restarting the Ps3 and it still doesnt work. Why wont it let us join?


Hello,

I have experienced this several times and although it does not work every time it has improved since the first day.
There will be released several patches for the online bugs.

Meanwhile you can try this to see if it works for you:

1. When you friend sends you invite, click the middle button on your remote which takes you to playstation menu screen.
2. Go to account management and click TRIANGLE
3. Sign off then sign back ON
4. Then go to your inbox or invite menu
5. Find your friend's invite and click join game.

Hope this helped.

For some reason my party privacy is set to invite only but in party privacy its only got invite only or closed so i cant play with any random people i play on ps3 why has this happened


You should still be able to play online with people, as the party privacy only effects parties that YOU make. If you join a playlist, you should be able to join in on the fun :)

Lemme know if you need any more help

Every time my freinds invite me to a game in call of duty world at war it say the games session is no longer available what can i do to fix that


Try turning off your console and turning it back on- that's what I did. Are you using a wireless adapter? If so, then it may have trouble connecting. Try moving it to an area closer to your router. Also, the cod5 servers **** lol, so it may clear up in time. If you haven't checked already, make sure his game isn't full.

'Invitation' on Call Of Duty


There are lots of reasons for this, you don't match the ranking requirements, the room is full, network or host error. Nothing to worry about, just try another room.

Unable to join game session


after endless hours of trying to play online we finally found out what the problem was -

check your discs you should have a serial on there if one ends in uk & the other ends in uk then you should be able to play together

if one ends i unk & the other ends in us then this is why you cnanot join or you cannot connect to host
This is the FIX
create another user then create another playstaion account now you both need to creathe this in unites states with another mail account - fill out the address in florida californail post code 90210 - once this is done youshould then be able to join up in the call of duty lobby but unfortunatley your stats are afresh
