As of now, I'm trying to play Modern Warfare 2, because I have discovered the joys of riot shield flash-knifing, but the PS3/the game isn't letting me. Whenever I start up the game, I make it about 2 seconds into the Infinity Ward logo and the screen turns black, after a few more seconds it returns to the XMB. No error messages or anything.
I've tried restarting my PS3 (numerous times), cleaning the disc, taking the disc in and out, etc. Didn't work.
I then found that when I'm disconnected from PSN (still connected to internet), I can start up the game and play like normal. Then I tried restarting the router, resetting it back to factory defaults, played around with the Internet Settings on the PS3 and the router, etc. Still doesn't work.
This only happens with COD4 and Modern Warfare 2, it doesn't happen with any other game I have (Portal 2, Disgaea, Skyrim, GoW3, Rock Band, etc).
How do I fix this?
Sorry if this has been posted already, couldn't find anything through the search.
Nope, didn't work... I posted a Youtube video on this, by the way. Forgot to link it in my OP.
This only happened after I got the 4.0 patch, so it may have something to do with it.
Disable the Media Server Connection in network settings, see if that does anything.
