Sorry for opening up another GTA thread couldn't find the main 1.

Anyways we haven't really looked at the muliplayer properly,I attempted to have a go in day time other wk and it kept cutting out saying lost connection etc.

So tonight my partner decided to have a go,and we not getting anywhere with it.

He says our net is fine,he also plays Fifa 08 online on PS3. We don't have bother really with net on PC cutting out or on Ds or the Wii.

Any suggestions?

As far as i know all the recent downloads/ updates are complete we don't usually skip them.

I couldn't get on at all and it kept on kicking me back onto the SP part of the game. Anyway it was my wireless router that was causing the problem :( The Nat Type was at 3, i plugged an ethernet cable in and it went to 1 and i got online straight away!

Had no troubles since, 'cept the kids tripping over the cable lol!

If it happens on your 360 then you need to sort out your connection....

There is a big problem on the PS3 when it comes to non Sony owned game title (like GTAIV) they don't use Sony own servers, the 3rd party game makers have to set up or arrange for them to be set up by someone else, this is how you get the so called free internet on the PS3 and that is why you pay MS a small fee to maintain their servers that ALL games pass through (Except EA who insisted on using their own).....

Taken from a site talking about what Sony were doing to cope with the extra server load -

"What Sony is doing to prepare—
Their fate lies in the hands of Rockstar who rumor has it is actually using Gamespy's servers. (Because they don't offer a back end to host games like Xbox LIVE), Sony avoid the headache for a trade-off of a little risk, and almost no say in fixing potential problems that may arise."


If it does it on your 360 then it is something wrong your end simple as that otherwise it would affect everyone on live.....
