I think it says private banned.The room shows up clearly for all, its upon attempting to join when the specific message will be visible. Its kind of like when you join a room, pick a character, and then it says room full and boots you because you took too long to pick a character and someone took your spot.I'm sure this will help with a lot of the complaints forums, thanks so much fog. Question though: just out of curiosity since I currently have my ps2 put away, what message is displayed when someone is denied access to a room? Is it specific as to saying limited to friend or you are on ban list? or does the room itself just not show up?
If they have Friends-only selected in their preferences, the pop-up message says FRIENDS ONLY.
If they have Everyone but banned selected in their preferences, it will say something about being banned as to why you cant join.
