EU PlayStation Network Experiencing Some Issues at Launch

Posted on Nov 29 2013 - 3:46pm by Shak

If you’ve been trying to log in to the PlayStation Network this morning to try and download all those games and PlayStation Plus freebies for the PS4, you’ve probably been receiving a time-out error, and you’re not alone. Several users have complained about similar issues, so as expected it looks like PSN is experiencing launch problems like it did in the US and Canada. The error you may receive is as follows:

An error occurred during communication with the server.

Several forum threads have popped up in the official EU PlayStation forums suggesting that this is affecting quite a lot of people, so it appears that Sony are having some teething problems at launch. Thankfully, firmware updates seem to be on a different server, so should still be downloadable.
