Hi vanderwouden!

Apparently it's a temporary issue on the Playstation Network and there's not a known fix yet. But some people are trying different things to getting it fixed, check this ongoing discussion on the official playstation forums

Hope this helped!

Ps3 slim error code 8001002b what could this code be.

The code means "dirty or damaged disc". The PS3 has encountered some kind of problem reading the disc.

Possibly the laser could be having problems, possibly the disc.

Try another game disc. If it works, the game disc you are trying to start is somehow damaged.

If it doesn't, the laser most likely has a problem.

If the laser is the problem you can try and clean it with a DVD laser lens cleaner like this one :

The U.S. PlayStation Network are down at the moment. Sony Entertainment is working on this. The code is from the site not a physical error with your PS3.

My PS3 has an error code 8001050F it will play PS2 games and movies but not PS3 games. What is the cause and how to fix

PS3 ERROR CODE 8001050F This error is caused by an issue with the internal clock of your Playstation 3 hardware which causes you to be signed out of the Playstation Network.
What to do:
A bug has caused the internal clock of your Playstation 3 to be set to January 1, 2000.
According to Sony, unless you own a PS3 Slim system, do not use or start your PS3 system until a fix is found, which should be within 24 hours of March 1, 2010.
If you use your PS3 before the fix is released, you may risk losing trophy data and other game data which will not be able to be recovered.
Since the estimated release date has passed, you should update your PS3 system to the latest firmware.
If you already have the latest firmware installed, return the unit to Sony for repair or replacement.
If your PS3 is still under warranty, the repair or replacement will be free. If not, Sony will charge a flat fee of $150.
PS3 Slim systems are not affected.
