Wasn't sure where to put this, but PSN support seemed the best place.
So playing PAIN today, I got this error:
A network error has occurred, you must restart PAIN and reconnect to access any online content.
Steps taken: Restart game, restart system, delete / reinstall game -- same problem no matter what.
Maybe it's your internet connection.
PAIN is a fun game I had it, but it gave me that trouble too. I think it's because the online for this game is because of the developers.
Try to leave your system off for a hour or the whole day then try playing it again that's how online worked for me.
I am getting the same error and have tried checking all the configurations on my router. My sister is also getting the same error on her system. Only thing we have in common is we are both Comcast customers.
Sounds like their network is down.
Is anyone able to access the Pain online network now?
On that note, it's good to know I'm not the only one with the problem. So therefore, the assumption is it's their servers.
I have verified with several of my friends on the ps3 and they all say they cannot connect to servers or play online.
Does anyone know who to contact to find out if this is temporary or if they have shut down the online severs for good?
It's doing the same crap on mine. I can play the game just fine, just OFFLINE, with zero downloaded characters, zero downloaded levels, zero anything I paid for. This particularly galls me as I recently (as of yesterday) had bought things that I wanted to play on the game.
I certainly hope there's some answer forthcoming soon for how to get back online PAIN.
