Sony’s PlayStation Network Down Again

Great Gaming Crusade: "The PlayStation Network is, once again, down.

We aren’t totally sure if this is a maintenance issue, hack or some other situation, but we are looking into it. An error code of 80710016 is given with a message of “An error has occurred. You have been signed out of PlayStation Network.” It doesn’t specifically give the undergoing maintenance message, but it still very well could be that."


Updated: Most users now report that the PSN is back up. Also, a new link shows that this was an intended maintenance issue even though that page cannot be found online by searching. The message and time frame given also do not match what the Official Sony page says.

Oh so it's not only me getting this error.

sdtarm1846d ago

who knows what happened now

MaxXAttaxX1846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

I was just online today.

Yup, it's up. That was quick maintenance.

BeOneWithTheGun1846d ago

Oh noes! My car is in this small building and will not start! The hood is up OMGZ! What is happening! My car is broken!!!!

Wait, it's getting an oil change.

LoVeRSaMa1846d ago

Look what Anonymous has done, every time PSN is down for a routine maintenance everyone flinches..

SilentNegotiator1846d ago

So it was down for an hour for maintenance, and now we get an article declaring it down "again" (as if this were comparable to 'the' incident) and it reaches 600+ degrees.

Good job, N4G.

Anon19741845d ago

It's always been that way though. Every single time the PSN would go down in the past for maintenance or even if someone couldn't get on because his internet was out you'd get articles on N4G screaming "PSN IS DOWN! LOOKIT! LOOKIT! THAT'S WHAT YOU GET FOR FREE!"

It's ridiculous.

Yet this site is overflowing with PS3 fanboys or so they claim -_-

The PlayStation Network will be taken offline for maintenance on Tuesday, July 5, 2011 5:00 PM PT - 6:00 PM PT. We hope to have these services up as soon as possible.

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 gamesSee 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.

solar1846d ago

at Sony's, MS's, or Nintendo's whim for online gaming. no thanks.

mrv3211846d ago

Steam went offline too recently.

Ranshak1846d ago


Steam may go offline however you are not at steams mercy to go online :)

You can still keep playing your games online even if steam is down, not the same with PSN or XBL.

mastiffchild1846d ago

And then you're at the "whim" of your ISP anyway and we all know what great people they are, don't we? Thing is you're always relying on SOME other git for your online and they all have their downtime. My ISP is down more than Live or PSN on average anyway.

solar1845d ago

but Steam down for an hour isnt "news" mrv321. and Mastiffchild, that is one horrible ISP you got there :P

The Rumored PSN Revamp Preparation?

EDIT: It's back up with no update or changes :(

Warprincess1161846d ago

Probably it because they putting up the Japanese PSN

Neko_Mega1846d ago

Sounds more like a good reason, right now I'm not having any problems and by the looks of it my friends aren't.

dkgshiz1846d ago

Its obviously to do with Japan. Way too big of a coincidence other wise.
