  1. Just installed the Playstation3 Update 1.02 for Transformers ROTF Italian game version and online multiplayer still doesn't work like before. I can play online with any other PS3 games including Activision ones but ROTF doesn't work. No one can see me in the game when I am an host and I keep getting a useless error message from the game telling that I was kicked out of the game.. but I never entered any games! I can't enter any online game.
    Activision supports absolutely sucks and it's a very bad thing for the Transformers franchise. I am not the only one unable to play online, it's full of people that can't connect.

  2. Don't necessarily blame Activision, it could be problems on the Playstation Network side of things. I play online on the Xbox 360 all the time and I have never had any significant problems. Hell, I've barely noticed any lag in this game at all.

    Hope it starts working for ya, it is a pretty fun game.

  3. @ the first comment. I noticed this problem as well. When I went around my router and connected directly to PS3 I never had a match that didn't connect.

  4. It's not a router issue here. The PS3 is in the DMZ zone, all ports opened, no firewall, nothing. In fact all other games work perfectly, the only game that doesn't work online is Transformers ROTF.

  5. I wish there was a way to get these updates for us PC gamers of the world. We truly are forgotten most of the time :(

  6. Thats because activision concentrates on the console side of all their games.

    I am a pc and 360 gamer and i find gaming on pc frustrating because of the lack of updates and anti-hack systems :(

  7. So,... does that mean No PC version? :(

  8. I wish the twins, jolt, and the arcee triplets were in this download.

  9. What is the vehicle mode for G1 Megatron? A flying gun?

  10. These ppl with ps3 problems should have gotten a 360

  11. I've got a PS3 and the DLC pack is not available yet. I've been on the web looking for updates or reasons as to why it is not available. Does anyone have any updates on the PS3 situation?

  12. wait how do you get the DLC for the 360?

  13. Thank you very much for this useful article. I like it.
