PS4 Connectivity issues


(Blnewman3) #1

Can’t start on online game. Just keep getting booted back to offline. In the rare situation where I can see my friend, I can’t connect with them. Internet is fine. Other games work fine. Getting “connection failed” errors. Can’t join game. Other player can’t join mine. You’d sort of expect a three year old game to have things like this worked out.


Borderlands ps4 servers always disconnecting

Since yesterday i have not been able to get into any co op games with my friends, i am always being put offline.
No its not my internet its a strong connection at 150 mbs and my psn is active. All other games are working. Any ideas?

Merging duplicate threads.

I suggest you both file a support ticket:
https://support.2k.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=51397

Sounds like it may be a temporary server issue, as all the PS4 players I know seem to have been having no issues up to yesterday.

This is pretty ridiculous considering the age of the game, you’d think it would… I dunno… work.


(Is this thing on?) #5

It does… work. I’m not aware of anyone playing co-op on PS4 who was having the same issues before the two of you posted today. So, new issue, apparently. As I said, please file a support ticket so the tech staff can try and narrow down the source of the problem.

I think Fortnite Season 5 launch and crashed the servers. I can’t find any other explanation

Fortnite has nothing to do with gearbox or 2k

You might want to check reddit then, because they’re talking about it there too. So, it’s not an isolated issue. I’ve filed a support ticket already. This has been an issue for days. I guess I’ll go play Overwatch and sit my drink on my Battleborn disc coaster while I wait for this to blow over.


(Pitabread19) #9

And the borderlands communities lots of people are having this problem . and 2 days for server issues is excessive…

I had sporadic issues with PSN. It has nothing to do with Borderlands. Fortnite could be a thing or it could be
2 gazzilions other things. Don’t expect transparency from Sony. Or any other gaming/online company for that matter. Or any company at all…

Except, and say it with me now, “Other online games are working and sony is reporting no network issues.”


(The doc is in.) #12

Sony is never reporting network issues. Ever.
I had issues connecting to my friend list for the last two days or so.

If you looked at the link I provided you’ll see there’s been thousands of reports. Across pretty much every online games.


(Pitabread19) #13

Still sony has nothing to do with game servers that arent sony exclusives. Developers have their own servers for the games they make. I have been playing everything just fine except borderlands.


(The doc is in.) #14

And game servers have nothing to do with friend list.


(Pitabread19) #15

Who said anything about a friends list


(Pitabread19) #16

The Dr is right though, i did some looking and sony is having psn problems. Nothing to do with gearbox


(Is this thing on?) #17

Gearbox is peer-to-peer for co-op play, through the PSN in the case of PS4/PS3. There are no “Borderlands” servers as such. The only thing that might be a problem on Gearbox’s side is the SHiFT login, but you can play on-line fine without it as long as the platform network (again, PSN in your case) is ok.
