I'm in Riverside California and my PS3 Modern Warfare game is stuck on PLEASE WAIT " Connecting to Matchmaking Server" I don't know what the problem is but if you have this problem around the date of October 31, 2012 know that your not the only one. Bummer I was really getting in to it. I erased all my friends from my contact thinking one of them had transmitted a virus but not the case.
I think the manufacture of the game has a internal problem with there server maybe doing an upgrade and can not run the server until the upgrade is complete. What a drag, guess things could be worse like being in NYC.
