  1. I don’t know what’s going off with the PS3 as really there is proof that its maintenance or virus, many people are having problems with the same error code (80710A06)and lots of people complaining about the same error code, which to me is obvious that something is wrong with the maintenance on PS3, for people saying you don’t have a life if you play games on the PS3

    WELCOME TO 2011 WERE PS3 RULES!! I do have a life but I always have time for the PS3.

    My lad would like it to be sorted out so he can play on the new little big planet 2 which he really loves 🙂 please get sorted 

  2. If you try logged in to you PSN account you might receive this error code : 80710A06.

    As of now PSN is down and currently undergoing maintenance this April 21, 2011 at midnight. If you receive this message don’t panic since there were lots of other PS3 user encountered this error message.

    The PSN is undergoing an outage and currently these services have been affected:


    PlayStation Store

    Account management

    You may find you are having an issue signing in with the error code (80710A06).
    I will update this thread with more information and when the PSN resumes normal operation.

  4. Sony PlayStation3 is having a Worldwide Outage right now! The system won’t allow you to sign-in to the PlayStation Network, and it gives you an error code 80710A06. Many people are saying it’s Hacker’s. Don’t know. [url is not allowed]

  5. There is a virus going around the PSN Network from a source. They can’t find the source so they can’t stop it. I am currently assisting Sony in the progress to find this virus! It is most likely to be out until late tonight early morning. I am sorry for the inconvenience. I too want to play online. The virus is like swine flu, it hits hard once and only once.

    *LATEST NEWS* Sony has just found the cause of the problem! It shall be taking some time before they can completely fix it. Sorry. I don’t even now how the virus got there in the first place.

    *No new news reported Sony is still trying to find the source.*

    BTW Rj silver the maintenance is a virus which they haven’t found so stop complaining. You need to have a life for more than video games.

  6. PlayStation®Network Service Outage 4/21/2011

    “We’re aware certain functions of PlayStation Network are down. It may be a full day or two before we’re able to get the service completely back up and running. Please stay tuned to this space for more details, and we’ll update you again as soon as we can.

    Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter.

    During this time you may:

    Not be able to access the PlayStation®Store

    Have difficulty signing in to the PlayStation®Network

    Not be able to play online games

    See a maintenance page when attempting to access the PlayStation®Network

    Note: When you log into the PlayStation Network, a message may appear which states, “the PlayStation Network has been suspended”. This does not mean that your account has been suspended; it simply means the PlayStation Network has been taken offline. Please wait until the maintenance window has passed before attempting to connect to the PlayStation Network again. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”

  7. As a matter of fact is an upgrade to security, for those of you playing Saturday at around 3:00 am maybe you experienced when someone hack into the network making weird things into MW2 like super jump,could kill with knife from far away,super speed etc. it lasted for about an hour.One of the players say something about posting a video on you tube.So be patient guys and gals most likely it will be up by peak time which is 8:00pm.

    BTW is not a virus there is a difference between a virus and breaching a system or computer ,in this particular case they breached into the network and used a script or modified part of the code that affect game play.Is either you know about the particular game code or you have way to much time to learn it.

  8. Yeah the PSN service is down right now. I’m actually a little mad myself as I was getting ready to have a sick few games with my friends on Black Ops.

    (I read this off the PS3 Forum from one of the administrators)

    We will have to wait this out. It could take a few hours to at most 2 days to fix the current issue. Many players are currently having this problem as well. So again, no need to worry about anything. Lets hope PSNetwork will be up soon.

  9. Hey everyone! I just wanted to state that i recently read a blog on the Sony Playstation website/app that was posted by the SCEE manager and his first post said that this incident has something to do with an outside source I.e hackers. I don’t know why he didn’t just say that? However, I just recently went back on a that blog and it has been deleted. It has been replaced with a statement saying that Sony would much appreciate it if all it’s customers were to be patient and that the problem may not be fully corrected for another 1-3 days. I just thought I would let you all know. Also, if you have an iPod, iPhone etc you could download the playstation app and all the latest updates and blogs from staff at Sony will be there! That’s where I’ve got all my info from. 😀

  10. It appears that the PlayStation Network had intentionally been taken offline for some emergency maintenance as many users are now seeing Error Code 80710A06 appear on their televisions. It isn’t official but we should expect to see a patch within the next few hours. Either that or it’s hardware maintenance where we will see no patch.
