PSN sign in problems with NP-35000-8 error

By Daniel Chubb - Aug 24, 2014

Following the PlayStation Network going down today, the service doesn’t seem to be fully working still even after the official Twitter account said you could sign in to PSN again. Sony has since retracted the statement, and users detail PSN sign in problems with different PS4 / PS3 error codes like NP-35000-8.

The majority of these errors are in relation to PSN server problems. One Product Reviews reader said they received this message, “Sony Entertainment Network is currently undergoing maintenance (NP-35000-8)”. Sony has updated their Twitter support account a few times in the last hour and you can see the latest PSN status updates below.

After we heard there was still intermittent issues with signing in to PSN, then thousands started reaching out to Sony on Facebook and Twitter. Responses can be seen below, which basically confirm the sign in issues and explain they are working on a fix to bring PSN back up and fully working.

Are you seeing the PSN status update as online and if so, are you able to sign in? We’ve run a few tests in the UK and with a work colleague in the US, but it seems there’s still problems trying to connect to PSN and it’s still down for us. Share a comment below with your location and if the service is not working. We’ll update our readers when a fix arrives.
