Original Story:

Giving us our first look at how the new PSN Status Page will look when there’s issues with the PlayStation Network, Sony has updated the page to say, “Some services are experiencing issues.”

The particular issue right now started at 10:30am PT and affects Gaming and Social features on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and other platforms. Here’s the description:

You may be experiencing issues related to launching games, applications, and/or social features such as trophies, messaging, or friends list. We appreciate your patience while we address this.

Everything else is up and running right now. You can follow along to any changes with the PSN over on the status page.

As a reminder, the PlayStation Network is set to undergo maintenance on Monday, March 23 for 2.5 hours, so sign in to your system now to continue playing during the downtime.
