PlayStation Network Is Currently Down

by Imran Khan on Jan 26, 2018 at 12:26 PM

In a fit of what we can only hope is unfortunate timing, PlayStation Network is currently down.

The outage came this morning as players tried to log in, only to be greeted with a system level message stating that the PlayStation Network is down. A quick perusal of Sony's PSN status site also confirms that most major functions of the network are not working at the moment, except for PlayStation Vue.

The AskPlayStation twitter has confirmed that there are issues, but has not gone into any more detail. For right now, there's not much that can be done besides sitting and waiting it out and hoping it gets fixed today.


Our Take
Hopefully it's just a network congestion issue with the launch of Dragon Ball FighterZ and Monster Hunter World last night, but it's still unfortunate players can't use the online features of those games on PS4 right now. Ideally, by the time you read this, it will all be fixed.
