Some gamers are encountering issues trying to connect to Sony’s gaming service today.
PlayStation Network is down for some, according to complaints from gamers on social media and internet forums . This is not a widespread outage, but it is causing connection and matchmaking issues for a number of players. With these errors, PlayStation 4 players are encountering issues booting up games or watching videos on apps like Netflix and YouTube.
Sony has not confirmed any troubles with PSN on its status page or on its AskPlayStation Twitter account . If you are not experiencing any troubles with PSN, you aren’t alone. This outage seems like it is only affecting pockets of users around the world.
Today’s troubles for PSN come after the company has released the 4.01 update for the PS4 system. This improves system performance, but it doesn’t introduce any other new features. It is unlikely that this patch is causing any connectivity troubles, but you may want to hold off on updating your PS4 until Sony works through any PSN issues.
While most people shouldn’t have trouble getting online with PSN today, the service has had a rocky record over the last two months . Sony’s gaming network went offline onAugust 26,September 6, andSeptember 13. Prior to this series of outages, the company had many months of solid performance with little if any downtime. Interestingly, Sony announced on August 22 that it is raising the price of PSN to $60 per year starting. That took effect September 22.
