It would seem once again Sony’s PlayStation Network is down again. After trying many of the online tips and even going as far as to boot my router (problem is so not my router) this issue persists.
It seems that Sony has responded to the issue and acknowledges there are ongoing problems, but offer not details to what this problem is or an ETA for its resolution. Even attempts to log into their website indicate they are under some site maintenance and the server (WHAT SERVER) is down.
The error code provided on the console “80710A06” also uninformative.
Update 1: PSN is acknowledging on its EU blog that the network outage may be a result of “the possibility of targeted behavior by an outside party.” Still no ETA for when services will be restored.
Update 2: PSN is now reporting that the network may be offline for “a full day or two.”
