PSN down, not working after Lizard threat

- Sep 27, 2014

Not being able to get gaming until today, and then finding the PlayStation Network down isn’t going to make you happy. This is what thousands of PS4 and PS3 owners are finding out right now, which comes after Lizard Squad told their Twitter followers gamers wouldn’t be happy this weekend.

PSN is not working in multiple locations, especially across the United States, and we’ve noticed both connection errors and PSN sign-in problems after reports about the service going down on September 27th. You can read about the Lizard Squad hint at planning to take down certain gaming services in this article, although it hasn’t been confirmed these issues are thanks to a DDoS attack.

One Product Reviews reader said, “why is PSN down? This isn’t fair, I haven’t played all week and now I try to login and find the PlayStation Network is down”. Another added, “I can’t connect to PSN in Newark, DE, and I spoke to a friend who’s having issues with connectivity in Pittsburgh, PA”.

Those of you that just got hands-on with FIFA 15 for PS4 won’t be happy if you’re unable to sign-in to PSN today. This latest outage will only upset those gamers that were already hit by FUT web app problems.

Update: The 8002A548 error code is one that’s been reported to us, so again leave any codes you’ve received and what system you’re using below.
