GTA IV says I'm not signed in, PSN says I am

25 replies 2457 views Edited Apr 30, 2008

I'm told when you're in GTA IV that going online is a matter of hitting the up button, that it's related to the cel phone. This is not coming up in my game. I go to Stats/Network and the game says I'm not signed in to the PSN, but when I leave the game, the Media Bar says I AM signed in, so I go back into the game, it says I'm not signed in. So I go out to the Media Bar, it says I am signed in... (went through this several times before I gave up). It may be a problem with the game, it may be clogged servers, I dunno...

 

Anyone have any suggestions? I've done the old 'unplug your modem, your router, shut off the PC and PS3' bit and it changes nothing. The PC is online fine, no problems there.

The media bar says you're signed in, even if you're offline. Make sure that you're online by viewing your friends list. If you aren't online, try reconfiguring or resetting your network settings.

Thanks. I do look for the blue dots on my Friends list. And I did go to Network Settings/Internet Connection Settings and ran it through all of the automatic settings. The Connection Test passed everything except UPnP was not available.

That happens to me when I am in a game. It will say "You have been disconected from the Playstation Network"

That has happened to me as well, T_O_M. The difference is that with other games, the Media Bar says I am off, too. GTA IV says I'm off when the Media Bar says I'm on.

Yo yo. Same thing is happening with my GTA multiplayer. I was playing it fine all yesterday and last night, but when i turned it off to sleep, next morning it wont let me access multiplayer... (I knew i should never have slept)...

 

Is there anyone from Playstation that is able to verify that it's the server thats full not our connection that is stuffed??

Haha it was all good until the Americans had their release and now BOOM the servers are full.. When do you guys sleep!! haha

 

Any help would be great thanks.
