PlayStation’s official PSN Status page is now listing all online services as up and running. If you log into PSN on your PlayStation device now, you should be able to engage with online services.
PlayStation has not acknowledged the temporary outage that lasted a little under an hour.
PlayStation Network is currently down.
Reports from PlayStation owners online as well as the PlayStation status page indicate that PSN is currently experiencing some technical difficulties.
As shown on IGN sister site DownDetector, there have been over 13,000 reports of an outage with PSN since 4 pm PT.
According to the official PlayStation Network status tracker, all services, from Account Management, online gaming, PlayStation Now, and the PSN Store are experiencing issues.
No official word yet on why exactly there’s an outage or how long it will be until services are back to normal. So check back with IGN as we’ll update this story when services resume, or there’s an official announcement.
