PSN is currently down for some users, with the PlayStation Network experiencing some technical difficulties that have caused a number of its features to be forced offline.
PlayStation has stated that it’s aware of the issue, with its team currently working on its problem. Here’s what we know so far:
PSN Down: What’s the Problem?
PSN is down on both the PS3 and PS4, with its issues being noted on the official PlayStation site.
“You may have some difficulty launching games, applications or online features,” a status update on the site reads. “Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience.”
The Ask PlayStation Twitter account also notified its followers of PSN’s problems, tweeting: “We’re aware that users are having issues accessing some features on PSN. Thanks for your patience as we investigate.”
No timescale has been offered for fixes to be deployed, though with Sony’s engineers working on the problem, it seems that PSN will be brought back online sooner rather than later. At the time of this writing, only PSN’s gaming and social features have been affected, with the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Now, PlayStation Video and PlayStation Music still fully operational.
