Hey Everyone --

I wanted to give you a heads up on the PS3 Connectivity patch for the PS3 version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. This is the patch that will improve matchmaking, connectivity, and optimized performance for you guys when playing online.

The PS3 Connectivity patch will be hitting in the very near future. The PS3 (exclusive) Connectivity patch will include:

US Data Center For NAT Server
Will make all US players connect to US data center and EU users connect to EU data center. This will optimize performance for all users in those areas.

Fixed 'Downloading Game Settings' Error
Fixed error with conflicting packet interaction.

Port 3095 Issue Corrected
Players were required to have port 3095 open in order to host. Now players who have port 3095 blocked can still host matches.

Matchmaking Optimization
Server search will end upon acquiring a certain number of good servers. Added "prefer" servers with best ping, this will optimize and expedite players finding and joining good matches.

This is the first patch, addressing connectivity issues, there will be a future patch that includes several more multiplayer enhancements but won't be here until well into the new year. Let me know if there are any questions. Thanks guys.

Which we should have had day one and it also seems the patch soon to hit the 360 will not be landing till way into 2008 for the ps3.
Sucks to be second class.

Edit: The update is now live, enjoy folks.

Relcom3564d ago

I'm one of the lazy : )

Omegasyde3564d ago

Lol but Infinity WARD had the best "coders" working for the PS3 version. I guess they flew the coop, atleast there will be a patch

But yeah violater Y PS3 fans come second again. Well, atleast we can go to unreal Tournament 3 and play with mods....

Wait we can't! PS3 users are still waiting to use voice communication! Shafted again! Thanks Epic for your "just in time for the holidays" rush job. Thanks for the Splitscreen too, which you said was going to have along with local co-op. Wait that feature is missing too.

Atleast there is good old loyal warhawk with its new dropship in the next day or so.... ... ... .. . No catch there, just $8.00. :)

Seriously whats up with developers and Quality Assurance Programs? Every Developer but Nintendo, is starting to turn in EA Quick Dollar games. It feel like the SNES/SEGA days where games had tons of glitches and problems.

ATLRoAcH3564d ago

I'm with you on the Warhawk expansion but don't forget we get the v1.2 patch tomorrow also.I think Warhawk is one of the greatest games there is.The best online game.I got my wallet loaded up for Thursday.Warhawk never gave me connection issues.

monkey6023564d ago

@ Omegasyde

Even the last Warhawk update reset all my stats. I pretty much found it a chore to play since I lost all my stuff :(

jiggyjay3564d ago

Here's the bigger question... Why fix it? The PS3 version of the game is probably only 500k while the 360s base is at 2 million at least(although there isn't any problems at all with the 360 MP).. PS3 owners don't care about online MP that's why they love Heavenly Sword, Lair and Uncharted! Games with no MP..

To the PS3 fans as well.. Now if you were paying for your online service this wouldn't have happen in the first place! Sony wouldn't have let this happen because they will care more about getting the online MP right!! But hey its free right!! No need to complain because its free!

oneDMAC3564d ago

Did the patch reset your stats or did the arbitrators reset them for stat padding? I haven't heard anyone complain that the patch reset their stats.

monkey6023563d ago

What is stat paddling? anyways no I didnt do anything wrong.

Two of my friends bought the game about a week before the same update then when they downloaded it their ranks shot up to impossible levels.

This sucks! none of them fix my problem of being "unable to connect to host" and the one thing this game needs more than anything is host migration so the game that you just joined wont end emediately.

"well into 2008" F**k that.

Also I want to be able to play with the Americans! they seem to be the only people i can join anyway.

Apocwhen3564d ago

It think this one might fix the "Unable to connecto to host" error:

"Port 3095 Issue Corrected
Players were required to have port 3095 open in order to host. Now players who have port 3095 blocked can still host matches."

Maybe the reason we can't connect is because the host doesn't have this port open? So with the patch it might be ok.

monkey6023564d ago

I hope so, but my friends could host for others just not me although all the others are English and I'm Irish so maybe thats why. I just dont know anymore! It's a real downer especially when you are away all week and it's the run up to Christmas.

ATLRoAcH3564d ago

I haven't been able to play CoD:4 online but twice and while it was lag free it took over 30 minutes for it to find the game.Screw waiting 30 minutes to join a game.I hope this patch fixes it.Oh, and its not my router because I bypass it and connect my PS3 directly to my modem for NAT Type 2.

Relcom3564d ago

US works fine i get into a game in about 7 sec, its not to bad.

beoulve3564d ago

30 min?? wow if you see urself creating game as host, quit it and retry. I usually be able to join a game in 2-3 minutes at most.

monkey6023564d ago

I have a very similar problem. last weekend it took me so long I gave up and didnt play the game at all

ATLRoAcH3564d ago

Yes I live in the US.I'm in Atlanta and this is the only game online I have ever had problems with.Its not me its IW.I guess thats why they're releasing a patch.I don't know what it is but if it wasn't for the great single player I would have dropped this game in no time.It sucks because I know how great of an online game this is and I can't play it.I'm not the only one with this problem.I think this patch may help me out but for now it just does the "trying to find potential matches" forever.I think the "Matchmaking Optimization" part of this patch will address the issue.We'll see.

jackdoe3564d ago

I know what you are talking about ATL. I have oftentimes had to wait thirty or minutes to get into a game. Which is absolute bs. A beta test on the PS3 would have insured that these problems wouldn't exist. But no. We got blessed with all the problems that the 360 beta users experienced.

dfcm20033564d ago

is great, I have had no problems at all with the Online. No Lag, no nothing... Only Option i think is needed is the Host migration, and mute.. I hate it when those 10 year olds get on, and they learn a new cuss word. LOL

Omegasyde3564d ago

lol. Some kid said the other night that he killed my mother, than dug her up and dry hu**ed her. I laughed and told him,

You get beat up at school don't you.

Kleptic3563d ago (Edited 3563d ago )

that and the game needs some sort of join function...the invites are a mess also...I get spammed with 10 invites for different people, yet everytime I try to join their game it is already full...

with a join option, you could keep trying rather than having to hope they send you another one...oh well...thats all stuff that future firmware updates will most likely fix so w/e...

and since the patch released last night...I have had more "downloading game settings" problems than I ever did in the past...I love it when devs do this...happened with Warhawk for over a month...release a "patch" that makes things worse...the "downloading game settings" bar came up in intermission while I was already in a game?...I could see it happen 3 other guys in there too...all our ranks reset to zero...and then the game lobby closed...

I can say that joining games was a little smoother though...seems like a game is nearly always found instantly...

DJ3564d ago

to 3 minutes for me to connect to a game. Hopefully the new ping filters work, 'cause the lag in this game is way too noticeable. You know you've dealt with too much lag in your life when you learn to snipe where an enemy is going to be in 1/2 a second instead of where they are onscreen.
