PlayStation Network Still Down as Xbox Live Returns


Still no word on when to expect PSN services to resume, though both users and some GameSpot staff have had random luck in both getting online and connected to some games.

According to Sony, “No ETA available yet, but our Team is working to fix it as soon as possible, thank you for your patience.”

UPDATE: The PlayStation support twitter account has begun issuing updates, telling individual users, “Our engineers are continuing to work hard to resolve the network issues users are experiencing. Thank you for your patience.”

However, when will PSN be back online? Sony says, “No ETA available yet, but our Team is working hard to fix it as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.”

The original story appears below.

Following network outtages for the PlayStation Network that started on Christmas Eve, and which extended on Christmas day to both PSN and Xbox Live, Sony’s online gaming infrastructure remains offline today.

The Xbox Live status page currently lists all core services for Xbox 360 and Xbox One as “up and running,” though access to apps for, Maxim, and IGN are “limited.”

PlayStation Network, meanwhile, is completely offline according to its status site (and verified by the fact that I can’t log in online). Sony has not issued an official word yet on the cause of the attacks or when it expects online services to be operational again. We’ll update this story with further details as they’re made available.
