What's your network like? Wired or wireless? Is your router updated? You need to give us more info.

This error seems to be intermittent, and is being reported here in Europe, and New Zealand/Australian forum. Nobody has found the code on any official list. The code seems to be a mystery, and has nothing to do with your internet speeds. It seems to be mainly downloading from the store, but is affecting signing in, plus loading specific games. There has been no official word from SONY, but the problem started after the shop was updated. Hope this helps, but it probably won't.
At least you now know it's a PSN problem and not your equipment.

happend to me 4 times trying to download gta: san andreas & also 5 times trying to download little big planet 2.. still havents been able to get a successful download on either of those yet.. it happened several times trying to download closure, guardians of middle earth, anomoly warzone earth, and dust 514.. except those all FINALLY downloaded after MANY attempts.. I'm in usa and a ps plus member as well as a sony only gamer owning every system they have ever made psp and vita included.. everyone posts on these forums about error codes(not just this specific one either) and sony doesn't even have the decency to muster up any kind of response either helpful or unhelpful.. I won't be renewing my ps store membership after these past 2 months.. $18 for 3 months of all the free error codes you want is not a good deal imo.. I bought it for games, not error codes.. I think I might go ask a brick wall about this error cuz id probably get an answer sooner.. thanks for stonewalling your dedicated customers and leaving us out to dry "stone wall sony".. sorry for the rant everyone but I have a lot of built up frustration about all this.. and yes this post does make me feel better albiet slightly..

Hi, I am in South Africa and I have been able to download other upates including Xbox updates. This God of War download for the PS3 is problematic.  What can be done to rectify it. I cannot make use of the Multiplayer part of God that I bought the game for!
