Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation Network is currently down (22:30 GMT) and undergoing maintenance across PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. No details have been given as to why the service is down, however PlayStation Europe tweeted:
We’re aware that some users are having trouble accessing PSN. Thanks for your patience as we investigate.
You can check status.playstation.com to see when the services will be back up. It is slightly worrying, and the fact that many users pay for a PlayStation Plus subscription and can’t play their games online will be frustrating for many. Hopefully Sony will provide some compensation.
