Original Story:

Within the last fifteen minutes (at 10:30am PT/1:30pm ET), numerous people on Twitter and Reddit have reported that the PlayStation Network is down for them in locations all over the world, with some users reporting maintenance notifications.

While the PlayStation Network Status Page has yet to update, the Ask PlayStation Twitter account has suggested power cycling your router:

As well, they suggest using a wired connection: “Please unplug your router for 3 minutes and restart the console, if the issue persist try using a wired connection.”

Bungie also tweeted: “We are aware of issues impacting PlayStation players’ ability to connect to Destiny and are currently investigating. Standby for updates.”

We’ll keep an eye on the situation and update this post with any changes to the PSN status.
