Currently all version of Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the PlayStation 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops on PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii, and all of the Guitar Hero games are experiencing online problems.
Word of the issues comes from Activision spokesperson Dan Amrich's blog. Here's what he has to say about the servers getting back to normal:
"Activision is working on restoring full functionality as soon as
possible, but I don’t know when that will be. Your patience while they
