i have yet to have any contection issues. matter of fact, i was surprised at how smooth everything runs.

the only problem i have had is loosing communications in the lobby during a contest...once the contest is over, everything is fine...and actually in the game it is always fine.

this is the best online experience i have ever had online...what a great game.

I played all weekend long and I saw no connectivity issues. Jumped into the matches just fine. There does seem to be some audio cutout at times with headset comm but very minor stuff. I love this game, its pure greatness!

I've experienced the connectivity issue. I don't know if it's because I'm using the wireless adapter or not.

Whenever I try to join a quick match, I get an error message "Connection to the host has been lost."

Connecting from a "Quick Search" is 50/50 for me.

Playing a game online has been flawless so far, it's the initial connection issue that's been the problem.

And I had some connection issues. But since they are releasing a patch, the problem must be beyond just the wireless.

, but I also have the wireless connector and I've experienced the troubles with joining a quick match. If I do the Custom Match then it almost always works great, unless the game is almost filled.

Otherwise, this game is straight P. I. M. P.

I get the same message, but only when trying to play ranked, unranked works just fine, so I still get to play, just not ranked.

I find you have to find a room with only a couple of people in it, dont go for the 7 or 6 rooms, by the time you connect, it will be full. Go to a small number room, and when you connect, you will see alot more people are actually in there.

Hope this helps someone.

I've been rockin out on multi without a hitch. However, I'll spin the news badly seeing that all the hate is usually issued at Sony. Seeing that Sony is having an update on Day 1 seems a bit odd not to have a nock at any game that comes out on 360. Seeing they need to get a patch for them all after it's been made "Gold" and out in retailers around the globe.

I have had the same problem and I don't have wireless adapter...I get the same "connection to the host has been lost" so yeah I totally avoid quick match and do the custom match instead. I have had no lag issues whatsoever although I have noticed really bad echoing in everyones headsets...anyone else get the echoing as well?

Mr Murda4454d ago

Yeah, but I've noticed that "in game" with the wireless headset.

BIadestarX4454d ago

I had the echo problem. I had to disconnect my mic so it wouldnt bother other other people playing. I also, have wireless connection.
