Playstation 3 Network Error 80710A06
If you're like me you're a very unhappy camper right now due to the playstation network not allowing you to sign in and play Mortal Kombat 9 online. Yeah, I know... It sucks, and apparently there isn't a thing you can do about it, not to mention that I don't think Sony even knows why it is down as of yet. I say that due to a picture a friend just sent me, along with a link to the page. (Which the link is broken now, maybe they are trying to hide something? Conspiracy? I doubt it.) Take a look..

It would appear that Sony has admitted to an outside attack on the system, so they shut the whole network down to prevent further intrusion. I don't know how far a hacker would have been able to get into the playstation network as far as affecting its users, however i'm glad to see that they at least did something to TRY and protect its users.
