Sony’s PlayStation Network is having issues once again. This is the second time in three days that the service isn’t working as it’s supposed to be. It’s not a complete outage but the issues are widespread enough that there are countless reports online of gamers having difficulties in accessing the PlayStation Network. The PSN status page has also been updated to reflect that gaming and social services are “experiencing issues.”
The first reports about troubles with PSN surfaced over the weekend when two big titles – Dragon Ball FighterZ and Monster Hunter: World – were launched. Sony confirmed at that time that account management, gaming and social services were having problems and as were the PlayStation Now, PlayStation Video, PlayStation Store and PlayStation Music services across PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
A note posted on the status page today says that “You may have some difficulty launching games, applications, or online features,” and the company adds that “Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience.”
Those who are facing issues can try to log out of the account that’s having the difficulties, power down the PS4, access playstation.com and sign in, confirm signing into the website, and then turn on their console and log in.
At least that’s what PlayStation’s help account on Twitter had to say yesterday about a temporary fix.
