PSN Is Down Worldwide, Sony Is Investigating

In other news, birds are immigrating to the south for the winter.

PSN goes down so often now that I’m not sure it’s news anymore. And yet, it’s something that you should be aware of, particularly if you had plans to play some Destiny or Call of Duty– all PSN services seem to be down worldwide. This includes not just online play, but also the PSN Store, PS Vue, and PS Now, among other things.

This is not related to the maintenance earlier today, either- The PSN status page shows all servers offline, regardless of your region, and does not mention any maintenance work as the cause for the outage, as it would if that had been the case. The Ask PlayStation account itself has admitted to the outage, noting that Sony is aware of the issues, and that it is looking into them.

Sony really need to do something about this, and about the frequency with which PSN is down in general as well- when you are charging people $60 a year for the service, you need to ensure that the service is worth charging that kind of money for.

    LOL. Don’t worry Chaz. Sony is pretty good about reimbursing their customers for such outtages. But you knew that well before you wrote this sensationalist hit piece despite the fact that Xbox Live was down just yesterday. At the same time it is a good showing to the Xbox fanboys who seem to think you’re only targeting their favorite console with negative press. Too funny!

    Oh wait…I just logged in with no issues. Hmmmm….

      p.s. Won’t surprise me if Xbox LIVE gets attacked soon.

      No they don’t , fangirl …..this is why they’re always in court.The network , the product….the whole company (Sony camp) and those who chose to do exclusives with them ..all are garbage , the system was sold on hype and fanboy support from the gaming-sites journalist .. aside that the product and the first party games are trash ..FACTS .. Almost forgot ..”STFU” !

      Uncharted 4 got a 10 in GS and Gear 4 a 7…. GTFO! talk about media bias.

    • Mr Xrat

      Maybe Gears 4 just isn’t that good, hombre.

    • jp

      it is, and definitely UC4 is not a 10, not even Ocarina Of Time or Half Life which were a hiatus in the gaming industry at their time are 10’s…

    • Mr Xrat

      I don’t think you know what a hiatus is.

      Might want to check the scores those games got too.

    • Tomaterrrx

      You’re right. Gears 4 shouldn’t get a 10. But neither should Uncharted 4 (before you say it I love UC4, I just don’t think it’s a 10 like many publications rated it as).

      Xbox Live hasnt been down anytime recently. Even in last weekends mass ddos attacks where PSN went down XBL was still up lol. Why lie?

    • crazy_black_man-

      Xbox Live goes down more than your husband.


      Report: Xbox Live faster, more reliable than PlayStation Network

      Good you got jokes…..doesnt change the facts fanboy.

    XBL’s been down far more often, Xgimp.

  • Mr Xrat

    Came back after a few minutes, thankfully. At least Xgimps get to gloat about a gap closing for a change.
