Yesterday i got black ops 2 on Ps3 , then got home and joined a lobby, then 10 seconds later i was kicked and a message popped up saying:
The call of duty Black ops 2 server is not available at this time. Please try again later or visithttp://www.callofduty.com/blackops2/status for updates
This message has been coming up for over 24 hours now and really is getting annoying. I've tried signing into other accounts, No luck. Also On a different ps3 i have been getting the same error! I haven't hacked this game or had any jailbroken ps3 before, so i don't think it would be a ban, If it is then that is a load of crap. Hopefully a patch or something will fix this issue that i'm not just having, so is alot of other people.
Anyone else with the same problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.
We're looking into this and are working on resolving it for everyone affected. We know it's frustrating; there's no reason that you shouldn't be able to play a game you just purchased.
Just to make sure we eliminate all possible causes of this on your end, make sure that you restart your console, router and modem. As unlikely as it is that this is an issue with your console, it can't hurt to try this, if you haven't already.
Another item of information that would help us if you know the answer is your location and your ISP.
Thank you for your patience, we will update everyone when we have new info on this issue. ^LM
same problem and its not only black ops two my friend and i cant play this or gta 5 sony is forcing people to buy next gen by shutting down servers for low gen and thats messed up!!!
Same problem, had the playlist number show up for a second, then screen went black came back and can't connect to server message. This is seriously F'd up. I just picked up 2 copies about 2 hours ago, one for my son, and one for myself, just to find out that I can't play the damn game!
same damn problem, then when you call them they just give you shitty advice like turning your console off and on again or unplug your router. i spent like and hour waiting on the phone with customer service only to get that crappy advice. game freezes cant play online WTF ATIVISION and TREYARCH we bought your damn game and you come up with this BS!? this is just stupid, why would you even release the game if you didnt have everything worked out.
