Bangalore: For all those who are still scratching their heads as to why their 'Sony PlayStation' console is throwing up error message denoting "80710A06" every time they try connecting up to play some online Mortal Kombat, Portal 2, or any other game, its a bad week as the Sony PlayStation servers have gone down.

It all began on Wednesday when the outburst was made by Patrick Seybold, Senior Director of corporate communications and social media from Sony. Sony was aware that certain functions of the PlayStation network were down.

Sony is taking this unexpected moment to rebuild its infrastructure even better than before. Hence the delay continued. Though this task is time-consuming, Sony has decided to take time for solving the issue for complete additional security.

The game freaks on the online community reacted with a bit of frustration. Sony is investigating and it might be a day or two before gamers can jump online and frag their friends again. Seybold brought back the same news as before that the network was still down.

According to Seybold, Sony had to shut the network down to address an "external intrusion" that hit the PlayStation Network and the company's Qriocity service. Unverified reports claim that a denial-of-service attack targeted the primary PlayStation Network server. Additional denial-of-service attacks allegedly went after PlayStation Network servers, which have user account information.

It was predicted that the the "hactivist group" that previously targeted Sony was behind these complications. Game Pundits thought that 'Anonymous' the hacktivist group had re-upped its retribution campaign against Sony for the company's legal pursuit against alleged PS3 jail breaker George Hotz.
