As you may have noticed after the release of three hugely anticipated games this week, the PlayStation Network has been down since Wednesday giving users the error code 80710A06. After a couple of days had passed Sony finally gave an update on the status of the servers. There wasn’t much information in it but they did tell the fans it would be a day or two before the servers were back up. Finally Sony gave a little information about the servers and why they went offline, but still no definitive update on when the service will be online. check out the official update below.
