Solution: Simple! Wait in start screen and be patient.

Really, all you have to do is wait until the game fetches latest updates from the COD servers. Don’t press X until, the game is ready to start. That’s the case when the version number in the upper right corner changed from XY.0.0.0.0 to somthing like XY.XY.XY.XY.0
The client (your game) will download updated game files from the COD-servers.
This may take a while (up to 5 minutes ore more).
After version number stopped changing press X and the game should start as normal.
If this won’t work at first time, reboot your PS4, make sure your internet connection is working, check the game for updates and start up again.

Further explanations: BO3 version number

The first two digits represent the mayor updates. That’s the updates you receive from the PSN and which are located on your HDD and loaded at startup. At the moment its 65.

The other following digits seems to represent the server-sided version and has to be checked every time you start the game resp. login to the COD-servers.
If the login servers are busy, because rush-hour and big updates, fetching updated files on login can take a while.

Solution: Call of Duty – Black Ops 3 Beta – Error Code A.B.C.D.E.F.-.H.I.J.K.-.-.N.-.-.-.-.-.-.U.

Since I wasn’t able to login to the online service, I finally found solution that maybe work for you.

Solution: Force changing your IP address.

You can do this by simply resetting your router or cable modem, since you have an internet provider with a small or immediate lease time.

In my case this didn’t work because my provider has a lease time about 24h. Means that I have to disconnected my cable modem longer than 24h to receive a new IP address. In my opinion that isn’t worth 😦

So, finally if you are owning a mobile phone which provides tethering you can share your mobile internet connection with your (in my case) PS4. Simply check your phone settings for a tethering / hotspot / access point option. Configure and enable it. Go to your console wireless network settings and connect with your phone.

That did the trick for me.

So I hope this will get you ready to play BO3Beta for at least a few hours.

Update: PS4 beta period is over. Unfortunately Activision or Treyarch (whoever is responsible for this issue) could not fix the problem. I just played one match, using my mobile phone as hotspot for the PS4 as described above. Hopefully PC and XONE players will be spared from this annoying error.
