We have a quick heads-up for those of you trying to login to PSN today. Sony has confirmed that PSN is down today on June 2, 2014, but there is a way to still play online if you have remained signed in to the service.
At the time of writing, PS3 and PS4 owners will run into problems trying to access several areas of the PlayStation Network. One message which you may encounter when trying to access PSN on PS3 and PS4 is “Sony Entertainment Network is undergoing maintenance.”
Fortunately, you should still be able play online if you have been signed in to the service before 9.50am Pacific Time. Otherwise, the PSN will be back up at 4.30pm Pacific Time with normal functionality.
PSN isn't down, just your friends list & party chats aren't available. Going to play some CvC.

We’ll keep you updated in the coming hours.
