Original Story (1pm PT): According to multiple reports on Twitter, Reddit, and NeoGAF, the PlayStation Network is currently down on PlayStation 4, with maintenance messages popping up when trying to access the PlayStation Store.
On Sony’s PSN Status Page, they say everything’s up and running, but Down Detector is already tracking over 2,400 PSN down reports from players. 67% of players report sign-in issues, while the rest is split between gameplay and the PlayStation Store.
The Kaz Hirai parody account said, “We have started our annual Black Friday PSN deals 3 days early! We have also started our annual Black Friday PSN outage 3 days early.”
If Sony acknowledges the PSN being down for some right now, we’ll let you know.
Are you able to sign in to the PSN?
