We can see that out of the blue, PSN is down suddenly on Janaury 4 2016. This is the first notable instance that the PSN servers are down in 2016 and it probably won’t be the last this month.
As far as we’re aware, Sony gave no indication to gamers that PSN maintenance on January 4 2016 had been scheduled in advance.
As you can see on Twitter though, PSN is down right now in Europe and the US and gamers are not very happy about it at all with Black Ops 3 and Destiny servers down today at the same time.
It’s also worth noting that at the time of writing, the PSN status checker shows that everything is fine – indicating that this is not updated by Sony in real time.
We’ll provide updates here so let us know if PSN is down in your area and keep checking back here for other feedback from users.
