Sony acknowledged yesterday that "certain functions" on the PlayStation Network are unavailable
, though no specifics were mentioned. Sony has posted another update
today saying it's investigating the outage and that it may be another "full day or two" before everything is back up and running.
The specific cause of the issue was not identified but there have been widespread reports of PSN users being unable to sign in. When attempting to do so, many are receiving an 80710A06 error preventing PSN access, meaning no online play or PlayStation Store access. That's especially frustrating news for gamers who may have picked up SOCOM 4
or Mortal Kombat
earlier this week and are looking to play it online.
It's unclear if this downtime is related to the attacks promised
by hacker group Anonymous earlier this month.
