Ever since Sony’s PlayStation Network (PSN) was hacked in 2011 that caused a major outage, we suppose we can’t blame gamers if they were to feel paranoid whenever PSN goes down because it is unclear if this is simply a connectivity issue, or if it the network has been hacked again.
That being said, it has recently been reported that Sony’s PSN is down again and at this time of posting, Sony’s PSN Network Service Status page shows that pretty much all of their services are still experiencing issues. Sony has since confirmed this on their Twitter account but unfortunately were unable to confirm when things will be back up and running.
According to Sony, “We’re aware that some users are having trouble accessing PSN. Thanks for your patience as we investigate.” This is rather unfortunate and hopefully this is nothing but some kind of connectivity issue as opposed to a larger one, especially since Sony is expected to hold a CES press conference as we can only imagine the last thing they’d want is to have PSN interrupted.
Either way gamers looking to get onto PSN will probably have some troubles, so we guess you’ll just have to wait this one out and hopefully Sony will get things back up and running in the next couple of hours.
