Currently the PlayStation Network is experiencing a massive outage that could now possibly last for days, according to an announcement that Sony made recently. The company is investigating the cause of the outage which began two nights ago. No cause for the outage can be confirmed at this time.
There haven’t been any connections to the previous outage experienced earlier this month, which was rumored to brought on by the online hacking community known as Anonymous. Users that are unable to sign on to the PSN will most likely see the PSN Error Message 80710A06.
This means that all online gaming, access to the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, and services such as Netflix will be unavailable during the outage. We are currently looking to Sony for more information on the situation. They posted on the PlayStation Blog that as soon as they have new information they will be sure to announce it. We will keep checking to see what’s going on. Are any of you experiencing issues with the PlayStation Network right now?
