[UPDATE] The PlayStation Network’s issues have now been sorted out, it seems. The PSN Status page shows that all PSN services are now back up and running normally.
The original story is below.
The PlayStation Network, the online service that powers PlayStation products, is running into some problems right now. The PSN’s official Status page shows that “Gaming And Social” elements of the service are experiencing some hiccups currently.
“You may have some difficulty launching games, applications, or online features,” reads a line from the page. “Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience.”
The service interruption is affecting PlayStation 4 alone, the page says. All other PSN services, including Account Management, PlayStation Now, PlayStation Vue, PlayStation Store, and PlayStation Music, are working normally, the support page says.
We’ll report back with more details on this latest PSN service interruption as new details become available. It is unclear how widespread the issues may be or how long the interruption will last. As always, your mileage may vary. Keep checking back for more.
