PSN is down for 'some users,' Sony is investigating causes

While not widespread, PSN is experiencing technical issues preventing some users from logging in and playing games.


After several users complained about being unable to log on to PlayStation Network, Sony sent out a tweet confirming that the network and select services are experiencing technical difficulties across all PlayStation platforms.

"We're aware that some users are experiencing issues logging into PSN. Thanks for your patience as we investigate," the tweet reads.

Sony provided a link to the PSN status page, where you can monitor PlayStation services in real-time. As of this writing, all services appear to be up and running, but Sony wants to make sure that's the case for all users rather than a portion of its audience.

Services affected by PSN's current outage include PlayStation Now, PlayStation Vue, and PlayStation Store.
