212w ago - Update #2: Modern Warfare 2 PS3 Patch Update v1.04 is live, but a changelog is not currently available for it yet.
Update: Modern Warfare 2 PS3 Patch Update v1.03 is now available which also fixes the PS3 Party System issues.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for Sony's PS3 console has reportedly experienced online issues since release with both players being unable to invite friends to matches and unable to unlock PlayStation 3 trophies.
As a result, Infinity Ward's servers are now back online as Robert Bowling (aka fourzerotwo) has now released a PS3 patch update v1.02 to remedy the PS3 Trophies issues, and apparently party invites will be patched this coming Friday.
To quote: "When you start up MW2, you will be prompted to download version 1.02.
Infinity Ward is definitely trying to keep the user satisfaction level high by releasing a patch just a day after MW2 hit shelves. With this 15MB update, everyone will be able to get their trophies now without any issues.
What about the party invite frustrations, you ask? Well, on Friday a fix for the party system will be released."

I have had no such problem with the new firmware, obviously I cannot speak for everyone else. There were over 300,000 people logged in and playing MW2 last night all of these players had to be running the latest firmware to play.
Thanks for the other method of joining on MW2 I will try this tonight and post back with the results.
