PSN Outage, PS3 Errors and ‘Anonymous’ Thoughts

By Gary Johnson - Apr 6, 2011

Following on from the PSN outage and PS3 errors this week, we have seen an official response from Sony reporting the problems but not confirming too much of why it happened, and some gamers are not happy, especially if it has to do with hacking.

Peter over at The Sixth Axis has given his thoughts on the episode, and while he doesn’t condone piracy for financial benefit, he is not sure about the methods Sony is using. He goes on by saying he don’t necessarily agree with what anonymous are doing, but he can see what they believe that they are fighting against.

PlayStation 3 owners have been hit with the error code 8071053D or 80710D36 when trying to sign on to PSN. There is now a whole forum on the issue with gamers getting highly frustrated with the downtime. Many are saying that the hackers have lost any sympathy, as the downtime is affecting Joe public besides Sony.

Soon after we told you that Anonymous had warned Sony it would be targeting them, PSN and Sony websites started to have problems. Whatever you feel about the hackers case, it has been a very frustrating time for owners of the PlayStation 3.
