Since the "can't add funds to walet" thread was started in 2009, I figured I'd make a fresh one here to show fresh activity on this topic.
As of today 08-29-2013, I can't add funds to wallet or purchase any games.
On the SEN web store, it says "please update your payment method" and then directs me to a 404 error page.
On the PS3 it just says "an error occurred".
Anybody else having trouble adding funds or buying stuff today?

I'm having this issue as well. I've tried 3 different cards on my ps3 and I keep getting "an error has occured". No number, or anything to id the error. SEN says unable to add funds.
