I tried multiple times within a period of about 3 hours. Same problem. Tried restarting, signing back in, definitly a server problem I think.

Try rebooting (restart).

Sometimes, after an outtage, you have to do that to get back in...

What a relief! I thought it was just my machine that didn't work. Hopefully they are making improvements to the system.

Ditto, guess I'll just have to make due with RE5 till this thing gets sorted. Maybe they're fixing the goddamn BDB II bug? Wouldn't that be amazing...

yeah i fiqured R* will probably never fix the bugs, so i went ahead and entered cheats 4 single player. it would b my luck if thay fix the problem, and im screwed out of some of the remaining trophies. lol

i agree with bates_gta, there should be a warning of some kind. unless their server crashed, and thats what there working on, idk

You'd think we would get some kind of warning wouldn't you.

I hope it's just maintenance to sort out the recent connection issues we've had lately. Trust it to happen on the day i sort my Router out sad.gif I'd do anything for some FM fun now.

Ahh thought it was just me...

Does anyone know if this is just a PS3 problem or is the X-Box servers down as well?

And best of luck to R* let's all hope this is resolved sooner rather than later.

TwindSkittle mentioned in the Events forum that Game Spy hosts GTA, not R*...

Doubt it has anything to do with Sony. Rockstar is probably fiddling with something.. or a wire got unplugged, lmfao.

Even worse, I figured out a God Mode hack for PS3 but the way it's coded, I can only use it for 4 hours between 2PM and 6PM sad.gif

Well last night everything was going fine, was doing some....um....bad things to noose players then couldn't get the next game going and ended up getting involuntarily returned to single player. Upon trying to reenter MP I got the message that it couldn't connect to the game provider. Upon now, 9:30ish I still can't get into MP. I sure as hell hope it means that the MP system is getting improved or something. Of course we've had a bad system for a year now so I've pretty much abandoned hope, lol. I hope to play soon, I didn't get to finish what I started last night..

somehow...i seriously doubt that the problem is with your router...this issue is global...and i don't care what brand of home router you have there is NO way it is stopping ALL of us from playing online. It's a server issue and Sony doesn't run the individual game servers...so in other words...they have NO clue what's going on and are just trying to pass the buck.

My fear is they (whoever runs the servers and/or Rockstar) still don't know what they're doing - they haven't really since the game's release. I wonder what my rank will be when it's back online. mercie_blink.gif

They either can't fix an issue that occured 12+ hours ago, picked a weekend to fiddle with things (brilliant since no one would want to play the game on a weekend), or worst of all, have all gone home for the weekend.

It's rediculous they haven't even fixed BDBII since they broke it. Millions in profit and no love in return.
