PSN down with undergoing maintenance error again

- Aug 26, 2014

It looks like PSN is down again today with the well known undergoing maintenance error, and the culprit seems to be the same Twitter user who took the PlayStation Network down just a few days ago. We checked both a PS4 and PS3, which revealed the PSN undergoing maintenance error message on both systems.

The tests we performed were in the UK, although we are yet to hear from those in the United States using PSN today? If you have noticed the service not working, or if you are not able to sign in today, then leave your location along with details in the comments.

PSN down with undergoing maintenance

There was planned maintenance for PSN yesterday, but this was postponed until a later unnamed date. One Product Reviews reader said, “I can’t enter a code to purchase a game thanks to being kicked from PlayStation Network, and now it’s not working saying “down for maintenance”.

The Lizard Squad tweets below certainly hint at involvement, although nothing has been confirmed from either Sony or Lizard Squad for the problems today.

We’ve also seen a number of Twitter users reporting PSN is down today, August 26th, as seen below.

We’d love to hear from Product Reviews readers that own a PS4 or PS3, is PSN not working for you today or can you sign in just fine? As you can see in one of the tweets above that was shared within the last couple of minutes, it looks like the PSN NP-35000-8 error message is being displayed once again.

  • Chad Warden

  • Del

    I am seeing the currently undergoing maintenance message, this is a joke. I don’t blame Sony, although Xbox seemed to hold up better when they got attacked.

    • Travis Morton

      Microsoft has more data centers which makes it harder to take down I guess. It’s crazy how this keeps happening. Every second it’s not working sony is loosing money.

  • Travis Morton

    Yeah I’m getting the maintenance message and I’m in the US.
