As of 1:00am ET, Sony has confirmed that every PlayStation Network service on every platform is currently down. This isn’t due to unexpected issues, but because of scheduled maintenance. It’s expected to last two hours, and will be back up at 3:00am ET.
On the PSN Status Page, Sony detailed exactly what’s going on with the maintenance and what PlayStation Network services are impacted:
Affected Services: PS4™ , PS3™ , PS Vita , Web , Other
Routine maintenance and improvements for PlayStation™Network will be performed for approximately 2 hours on 09/25/2017, 1:00 AM to 09/25/2017, 3:00 AM (Your Local Timezone). Anyone who already has an account can still sign in to their PlayStation™Network profile, play games, and use most applications while this maintenance is carried out. You will not be able to access PlayStation Video, PlayStation Store, PlayStation Music, Account Management, Gaming And Social, PlayStation Now, and PlayStation Vue during this maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience. We recommend activating your PS4™ as your primary console before maintenance begins so you can continue to play most games and use 3rd party services during maintenance. To activate your console, sign in to your PlayStation™Network profile and select [Settings] > [PlayStation™Network/Account Management] > [Activate as Your Primary PS4] > [Activate]. You only need to do this once. We strive to ensure that PlayStation™Network services are available at all times, but occasionally we must take PlayStation™Network offline to perform essential maintenance and implement feature enhancements. We are working hard to reduce the duration of each maintenance.
Start: 09/25/2017, 1:00 AM
End: 09/25/2017, 3:00 AM
While the PSN is down, you may receive a maintenance notification.
Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
