Strict Nat problem with Modern Warfare 3 – Call of Duty

By | November 9th, 2011|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

The time had come! Modern Warfare 3 was released yesterday,  eager gamers - queued up to get their copy first lastnight at 12am. Only to find when they returned on that they had a strict nat not an open nat on their Xbox 360 and couldn't join any online games. We had the same problem, strange though as it often happens with us, not sure if its due to the ip address not being static or the fact something is set up wrong on the router, but set everything up correctly for two Xboxes on the router - anyway I digress. This is what we do, when one of the xboxes have a strict nat - we do this on the xbox - not the router. Follow this video its as easy as pie and takes 5mins - Fix your nat settings for xbox360 this should work, if only for the time being. Otherwise Xbox has their own instructions here - Error: Your NAT type is set to strict (or moderate) Last Modified 9/8/2011 If you can’t join online games or hear other [...]

Sony promises some Network and Qriocity service back today 4th May

By | May 4th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

We heard today that the PlayStation network will return online today - I'm not sure we will believe them until it happens as they appear to be struggling. On the 20th of April 2011 we were informed by Playstation that some areas of the Network were down.  Since then its gone from bad to worse, with very inadequate information from Playstation. The nightmare unfolds before our eyes. Following many rumours we soon found out that the PlayStation network had in fact been attacked by hackers and millions of  gamer's personal information including credit card details may have been compromised. 26/4/11 - Sony shared that they had infact had an unauthorised intrusion into the network, and that some personal information including, names, addresses emails but that there was no evidence of that credit card information was stolen. 30/4/11- PlayStation announce that some service will be available this week - following a criminal cyber-attack on the company's data centre on this press release at Playstation blog. Playstation advised people to change their passwords and to keep a sharp eye on their bank statements, even though I also read that PlayStation said that credit [...]

Am I an Xbox Widow?

By | August 25th, 2010|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |

Xbox widows are people that complain that their spouses are playing on the Xbox all the time, that they are in second place to the console.You can read on websites that some people are relegated to the bedroom to watch the 14inch portable TV all night, while their partner plays on the Xbox on the 42inch plasma.When playing Xbox you might hear someone saying they have to sign out as their other-half wants to watch Eastenders or Big Brother and it will be divorce if they don't. There's even a Facebook group for ithttp://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=60579179697A forum http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/archive/index.php/t-211954.htmlAnd a support grouphttp://www.cafemom.com/group/37146Some sound really extreme, like the guys that don't work and just spend 24/7 playing on the Xbox but generally its just the evenings people seem to complain about,  griping that they don't get any time with their spouses or the TV. Basically they feel unloved or replaced by the Xbox. Thank goodness I don't have that problem.  We like gaming in this house.  We have 2 Xboxes, a playstation2 (not a PS3 we aren't greedy), one main PC and some laptops [...]
