Why can't I join friend's parties (CoD) on PSN?

11 replies 16192 views Edited Oct 13, 2011

Okay, so I hav a ps3 120gb and a belkin router. Its connected by wireless. The problem I have is when i'm playing mw2 or black ops or any other game online, I can't party up with most friends (only works with some) and in Mw2 and Black ops it says my NAT Type is OPEN and its NAT type 2.

Can someone please tell me what the problem is and how to fix it?

Check to see whether their party type is closed or open then check to see whether their party is full or open.

It may be the connection to your friends then, if you live in a smaller town they may not have as much connection, also check obsturctions while you connect. If nothing applies to you it may be a matchmaking glitch, (Treyarc's problem)

I live in a pretty big town and have fast internet and everything and my friends can join each other and their other friends. It's just me. Sometimes I get a friend to host (that i can connect to) and i tell my other friend to join but we can't party up with just us 2.

I have the same problem as you.

I can't join with some of my friends in CoD - Black Ops, MWF 2, GTA 4 and AC Brotherhood.

But if i try to join with them in Red Dead Redemption or Dead Rising i can!

why this happen?

We live close each other and we have a good connection...

Our NAT is type 2...

Are they all adult psn accounts, not a sub for an underage child?  These games may more aggresively enforce the age interaction restriction or parental controls.

Quick answer, try a wired connection and see what happens.  You may have to open up specific ports for certain games or possibly put the ps3 into a DMZ on the router, you should check out the psn connection faq in the support section. 

Make sure that your router is properly firmware upgraded and set up properly, maybe include information about the make and model and age of said device; to let people possibly help you, just saying it doesn't work is like asking me what is at the center of the universe....puppies and rainbows as far as I know.

They must have adult accounts because they can party up with each other and i can party up with some of them but not all. And i will try the ports and DMZ thanks.
