CoD4: Official word from Infinity Ward on the PS3 firmware update issue

Fourzerotwo (Robert Bowling), Community Relations Manager from Infinity Ward, writes: "You should no longer be receiving this error message or any other issues related to the firmware update in the game.

Thank you to everyone for giving us the heads up on this so we could start tracking down answers, and getting it resolved and please let us know if you have any additional issues."

Original story reported by CVG: "Today's 2.01 PS3 firmware update was released solely to fix instability issues on the console, but it's suspected it may have done the complete opposite for Activision's best-FPS-on-the-platform shooter, Call of Duty 4.

Dozens of angry gamers have hit the official forums to report that, since updating their PS3s this morning, they have been unable to play the online mode in the game. They obviously blame Sony's new firmware."

You guys should just buy the 360 version! Got it two days since it was released and have had no problems! It feels good that my $40 a year fee for xbox live is way worth it!

I havent been able to play COD 4 online since day 1, all it says is 'downloading game settings...'!

Edit: Never been fixed for me, might be a Europe thing, i've tried every day & on different updates & it still won't let me play.

Until the Firmware broke again

Well I've had no problem playing since the update. That said, I do notice server time outs and lag. This I believe is IW's problem and not Sonys.
