Sony’s network status page confirms PSN is down
At the time of this writing, the PlayStation Network status page shows that PS Store, PS Direct, and Gaming and Social services are down across Sony’s platforms.
“You might have difficulty launching games, apps, or network features,” reads a notice on PlayStation’s official website. “We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.”
As far as the PS Store is concerned, Sony has said players might have trouble peforming some or all of the following actions:
- Redeem vouchers
Account management services and PS Video are not impacted at present.
The outage originally began about an hour ago and it’s unclear when it’ll be fixed. If you’re having trouble playing single-player games, we suggest temporarily disconnecting your console from the internet if the game doesn’t require online connectivity to run.
We’ll make sure to update our readers when we have more information.
