Update: PlayStation Network Back Up And Running After Breakdown

Update: The PlayStation network is now back up an running, with SCE President Shuhei Yoshida apologizing to users on Twitter, saying: “As people are tweeting, PSN is back online. Very sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.”


If you want to battle friends online using PlayStation 3, PlayStation4 or  PlayStation Vita, then you’re out of  luck right now because the PlayStation Network isn’t working.

The network has been down since early this morning and although Sony says it’s temporary they have no timetable for when it will be fixed and are unsure of what is causing the problem.

A tweet from the company confirms this, saying: “It’s unclear what the cause of the current outage. “We’re aware that some users are having trouble accessing PSN, Thanks for your patience as we investigate.”

For now, gamers will have to wait it out and can check back periodically to see if the issue is resolved.

Calling the company is not advised as they do not have a solution at this time.

In the past there have been other issues and outages, with one lasting 23 days- hopefully this time resolution comes much sooner

Do you use any of the PlaySstation systems?

If so let us know if you were affected by the outage and be sure to  follow all my latest consumer news reports on Twitter!
