PlayStation Network once again experiencing connection issues

We almost went through an entire week without the PlayStation Network experiencing any kind of connection issues. Oh well.

PlayStation users can once again expect to experience connectivity issues with the PlayStation Network today that will keep them from logging into the service.

Sony confirmed the PSN is currently experiencing heavy network traffic and its team of most-likely exhausted engineers are on the case and investigating what could be causing the current issues.

The past few weeks have been brutal for PSN users as the service has been experiencing issues off and on since Christmas. As a result of all of the connection issues, Sony extended the subscriptions of its PlayStation Plus members by five days as well as offering a limited-time discount code for a digital purchase on PSN in January.

As considerate as these offerings have been, I’m sure I speak for all PSN users when I say I just want to be able to connect to the service without there being some kind of connectivity issue. Let’s just hope Sony can not only figure out what the problem is with today’s connectivity issue, but also attempt to better prevent future instances from occurring.
