Cant sign in to psn

Disconnect from your internet source, then reconnect. If it doesn't resolve itself, Sony is doing something to the PlayStation Network in your area and it will be down until they finish their changes.

I am a ps3 player and i attempt to play assassins creed: brotherhood multiplayer, and it has the animus sign and won't load... ive watched the multiplayer intro and then waited for hours, please help

This is because the Playstation Network is currently undergoing maintenance due to a recent hacking of their network. We are all still waiting for the Network to be fully restored, until then you cannot play and PS3 games online.

Just hang in there!

On my ps3 It won't let me play online or watch

The Playstation Network is literally undergoing maintenance after being Hacked. The Servers are all down so no one can use the network for now. It is not an issue with your system so don't be worried.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to sign into playstation network and is keeps signing me out saying error number 80710A06 what does this mean?

The PlayStation Network is down at the moment. Sony Entertainment is working on this. There is nothing wrong with your system.
"While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, we wanted to alert you that it may be a full day or two before we're able to get the service completely back up and running. Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter."

My PS3 keeps signing me out of the network

Shouldn't be a problem, but you should check the router settings & connections. I had that problem previously, but cleared up after re-connecting my network settings.
