PSN suffers widespread outage.

    PSN Down

    So you just started your 5 day Easter holidays and jumped on your PS3 to play co-op with friends.. bad luck. The PlayStation Network is currently experiencing a worldwide outage.


    Senior Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media, Patrick Sybold posted on the PlayStation blog to confirmed the issue and had this to say.

    We’re aware certain functions of PlayStation Network are down. We will report back here as soon as we can with more information.

    Thank you for your patience.

    While Sony confirm there are issues, in reality, users can’t even sign into PSN at all. The error code provided – 80710A06 is a generic connection issue, which essentially translate to PSN is down. So start your timers, hopefully the issue is resolved in a matter of hours and you can get back to GLaDOS.

    More than 12 hours later and PSN is still down. PlayStation have updated users with another blog post on the outage, explaining it may actually be down for multiple days.

    While we are investigating the cause of the PlayStation Network outage, we want to alert you that it may be a full day or two before we’re able to get the service completely back up and running. Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter. Please stay tuned to this space for more details, and we’ll update you again as soon as we can.
