GameSpot was quick to notice the PlayStation Network problems that were being reported by users who said they were having difficulty connecting to PlayStation Network’s various features. By visiting the Network Service Status page for PlayStation Network, you’ll find that Sony is indeed experiencing problems with its online services with each one of PlayStation Network’s various features sharing similar messages about the ongoing issues. The Gaming and Social feature’s message, for example, said players may have problems launching games and using online features until the problems are resolved.
“You may have some difficulty launching games, applications, or online features,” the PlayStation Network Service Status Page said. “Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience.”1comments
