Recently I have been completely unable to connect to factions mode. The 'connecting' bar that comes up after you select multiplayer goes up to about 20%, and then freezes. Music still plays in the background, and I can access the xmb fine by pressing the PS button, but when I try to quit the game I get the triple beep followed by a restart. The most annoying part about this is I bought the game about a week after it came out, and have played about 10 hours on multiplayer with no connection issues at all before the 1.03 patch..
Is anyone else having problems like me? I've looked around the web and it seems not many are experiencing this problem.
I've tried deleting the game data which saves on the hard drive of the ps3 and reinstalling it, and I've also redownloaded the patch. Both have done nothing to fix my problem..
I can't see how my router and port connections would be the issue as I have no problem connecting to any other online services on my ps3, but is that maybe the next step I should take? I don't even know what ports I need to allow.. My ps3 says I have an NAT type 2 connection so that's not a problem
If anyone has any suggestions on what to do, or can tell me if naughty dog are fixing this in a patch I'd really appreciate it, cheers
I'm having the same issue too. I have an older ps3, maybe gen 1 or 2. Is that what you have? I noticed other ppl aren't having this issue and i'm assuming they have a newer ps3. I have a hard time just getting to the menu screen. It takes forever to load. Once I get into Factions, it takes 10 mins to load the menu screen there. Then if i try to join a game, it takes forever then eventually just boots me out to the menu again. is this the same for you?
My problem's been fixed but unfortunately I'm not sure if it will help you - after leaving my frozen 'connecting' screen for aaagges it finally asked me to re-enter my online pass code. Now I've done that I can connect fine, so it sounds like my problem is different to yours, sorry mate
I am having the same problem also. I got the game when it came out and played some hours online and out of no where I have not been able to connect ever since then. After each patch I hope that I will be able to play online, but no luck at all. Really need the help to get back online. I tried deleting everything and no luck at all. NEED SOLUTION NOWWWWW. PLEASE.
Im having the same problem. In fact i cant even play the game because its also freezes. I ve tried turning it of and waiting for several minutes. My conection is ok, the Blue ray its ok. What shall I do?
And its true, the game took forever to start. And now all the waiting its for nothing.
