PSN is down again, users say not working

- Sep 5, 2014

It looks like Sony PSN is down again today, which is according to users reporting the sign in isn’t working and brings up a number of errors on PS4 and PS3. One such error displays a code, NP-35000-8, and while we have seen this before the status page isn’t reporting problems right now.

Sony has hard a hard time of late thanks to hackers, although the issues taking place in the last hour are not believed to be hacker related and most likely will be the cause of a slight glitch with servers.


We are seeing tweets arrive every few seconds on Twitter claiming PSN is down right now, on September 4th. While we haven’t had time to confirm if this is correct, or if this involves just the USA and UK, we feel the tweets speak for themselves.

Are you having problems connecting to PSN today and if so, what country and location are you in? It will also be helpful if you comment with your system, so PS4 or PS3. We’ll update our readers if Sony offers a status update soon.

    It’s down for maintenance says my home screen. So definitely not hacker related. Although I’m sure the surge of Minecraft downloads has something to do with it lol! I’m in TN, United States. 2:20pm here as of this post.

      Not one person believes you bought 12 controllers and broke them all…

    They are updating the network because of the launch of Minecraft ps4 edition, and they know there is going to be a lot of traffic for it so they probably want to secure things so it doesn’t cause a massive failure. Beats going down all day an not be able to download nothing.

    • Ippoletta

      They would have said so. this is just another “hiccup” in their faulty online service.

    • Jesse Krupnick

      derp it HAS been down all day do you even know how psn updates work? They do not interupt service.

  • Ron

    Anyone thinking this is maintenance will be wrong, PSN has been down around 20 minutes for me and it came without warning. On PS4 in London, UK.
