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”.


Are you able to connect to PSN, or is it down for you today? We’ve looked at the status page and everything is online right now, so this might be a problem only just taking place. Let us know your location and how long you’ve been having issues. If there’s any certain error codes coming up, then leave these below as well.

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.

  • Daniel Ortiz

    I’ve been on and off playing all day without problems. I’m in Miami, FL.

  • Ryan

    What a piece of junk. Microsoft doesn’t have this problem Bahahaha. Enjoy your 1080p indie games solo!

    • Jordan Zimmer

      F*** Microsoft

      • Ryan

        Funny that you dont have these problems with Microsoft. This seems pretty common with the PlayStation network dating back to PS3.

        • Keith

          Why would Hackers target Microsoft….no one owns one yet.

        • Ryan

          Only people who own sony are those that live in their moms basement

      • Ryan

        Thats all you can write Zimmerman? Wow and you have 4 likes Bahahaha. All people that live under their moms roofs or loosers living in her basement

    • rogue

      PSN is under attack by Microsoft fan (boys). Boys exactly it is obvious lizard squad is composed of immature children.

      • LizardSquadAreTerrorists

        No, they are criminals, not immature. It is commercial sabotage and the failure of the Federal Authorities to bring them to justice is a dereliction of duty. They even called in bomb threats and the FBI/CIA have done nothing. Pathetic. The sooner the Republicans are back in the White House, the better. Who cares about ISIL? These terrorists are causing far more disruption and danger to US citizens. I will not be buying CoD this year – or any other “big” online games until these clowns are warming beds in Gitmo. Which means less income for Activsions and other US comanies which means less tax revenue. Come on Obama, start acting in the interests of the US and US citizens…for once.

      • Ryan

        True indeed but these immature boys take down a crappy service. They are doing everyone a favor

    • Keith

      Ryan….don’t you find yourself playing every game solo? It’s like you’re trying to promote MySpace.

      • ryan

        Playing PlayStation is similar to living life without a girlfriend. U always end up playing with yourself

      • Ryan

        Playing solo keith? Microsoft’s network isnt the one always down. Also Microsoft has a bigger fan base for live service then PlayStation network between one and 360!

  • Bryan

    Unable to log in to PSN for past couple days. Keep getting the message that connection has timed out. This is especially frustrating as I’m not even trying to play a game. Just want to watch Netflix. My connection is fine for all other devices but my PS3. I live in Maine.

    • Joe Vicious

  • Blame Bush!!!!

    PSN, you have just forced me to do work around the house. How dare you make me do things that I don’t want to do. I blame George W. Bush for this one, you know Obama would.

    • LizardSquadAreTerrorists

      Bush would have taken these Lizard Squad nobodies out. They are costs the US millions everytime they sabotage a game. It means millions lost in tax revenue as people cannot even transact and buy new games. And newsflash, most of the big software companies are US entities that pay taxes in the US. These terrorists are only doing what they are doing because they know there will be no consequences. These guys are just another mess that the next Republican President will have to sort out come November 2016. And fix them they will as they are hurting US interests.
