Yep, it worked that way! However, I got a couple of problems when playing the game. For instance, it usually freezes during the initializing network screen and after a couple of minutes I get an network time out error. When I managed to pass this screen after a few tries, I connected to a game session and played for a while. Then, again I got a network error suddenly.
Yeah, I was having problems with that. It might have something to do with your router because apparently warhawk has no tolerance for blocked or hard to pass ports. I had to DMZ my PS3 (apparently it had become protected again during a reboot some time) before I got rid of that first problem and even now I have a few lag issues and random freezes (although I am on a wireless network so it could be dropping). That or they're just bugs that need to be worked out.
