came in here to find out what's goin on, glad i'm not the only one having the same error (X80710016) sign.... same as evry ones complaint, earlier logged on was fine but after the update evrything haywire, deleted and re-installed, same out come..... ;( can't even get into any space....
My experience is on one account, 2-3-4 tries does get me in. On another account (with more stuff but not near as much as MANY folks have) I can go a dozen+ tries and I never get in.
The database returns no results, and will only allow 8 characters, so I tried x8071001 and 80710016 and both resulted in no matches.
Sure seems related to 1.5.1 and I'd say in trying to fix one bug, they crated another one. Especially as it is happening during the verifying purchases process... in a GW post he said the "reward bug" was related to those who had a LOT of stuff.
They blew it AGAIN.
I need to expand on this.. This error/problem with Home, needs to be corrected. It takes a million times trying to log in, then once on Home, everytime you move from area to area, or download items, you get booted with this same error again, which makes you begin at trying to log in 50 times again. It's happening to everyone. Home needs to be taken offline asap, and this problem fixed.
Same with me. -_-... Yesterday I was randomly talking with friends, and all the sudden I disconnected.After that, I could not log in again and haven't been able to since. I reinstalled Home, I checked my internet, I even tried the suggestion to keep pressing 'x' and try to go to Harbor Studio. Nothing works, and now it doesn't even verify my stuff, it disconnects way before that.
I just bought some stuff, and I was going to buy more, and now I can't even log on to use it. I am not impressed in the least. This is almost as bad as the outage because I'm stuck off Home without my PURCHASED items...
I was hoping this issue would be fixed today but there's not even a reply or explanation. PLEASE fix this!!! I am get so frustrated and yet I still give more than one chance for redemption...I just want to use Home, even if it means freezing on occasion lol...
I'm getting this error as well (same code). Like the others, it happens to me during the 'verifying purchased content' stage.
It seems to work fine the first time I'm trying to log on after several hours with the system turned off or doing something else, but if I quit out of Home and then try to go back in (I was trying to do that yesterday to add new photos to my photo frames from a USB drive) then it gives the error.
Yesterday I installed 1.51, played the Ford minigames for the first time, and did several other random things that I usually do in Home, then quit out of it to mess with photos, and couldn't get back in. This morning I logged on and visited a few random places. I was on Novus Prime trying to purchase the spacewalk blaster. The blaster was not buyable because where the price should have been it said 'error' -I tried to quit out of the store, and was kicked out with the error code, and now can't get back on.
I can't say that I own /lots/ of avatar items -a fair amount, but nowhere near the amount of stuff some people have, so I can't think it's excessive junk-loading that's the problem in my case.
I tried logging on with my hubby's account -he never goes on Home and has not a single purchased item. His account gives the error as well -I wasn't even able to log on once and then get kicked out from his account. He does have some of the free welcome back items downloaded, so I guess those count as 'purchased' enough to have to be verified. : / However, I know for a fact that there's no way he did the Ford games from his account, so it's probably safe to eliminate that?
**One More Edit:**
After a couple more tries I was able to get in to my own account using the 'go to your personal space before the verification is done' method. My default personal space is the Assassin's Creed apartment, and I went to that instead of Harbour Studio since it loads your default space quicker -so I can confirm that that method does work with a different apartment.
I was thinking to myself while my PS3 was starting to log into Home last night....wow everything has been running great for the last couple of weeks I`m sooo happy THEN!!!!
8071016 ..WTF this is the same error code I received last night from about 9pm until about 2am. then everything was fine.
so are we talking maintenance or heavy traffic or another hack attempt or just Sony`s inablitiy to keep their servers up...
