Apparently those of you that have been getting the mysterious 80710A06 error message while trying to connect to the PlayStation Network
since last night (I was at work and didn’t get home until late) are hosed for at least a day or so. Patrick Seybold (Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media) at Sony posted the following message
to the Official PlayStation Blog earlier today:
“While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, we wanted 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.”
Ouch. What hurts even more is that Mortal Kombat will have to be local play only until this is fixed.
