It looks like the PlayStation Network has gone down today, October 2, in multiple countries including Australia, UK, and United States. We’ve tried to sign-in to PSN in the UK, but it’s down for us as well. One work related contact confirmed there’s connection problems in the United States and online services are not working in many regions.
One of Product Reviews readers stated, “I am not able to sign in to PSN today, I think it’s down and keep getting connection errors, although codes change when trying to access the PS Store”. Another added, “PSN is down today in Texas and Scotland, UK, as I have seen myself and heard from a friend”.
Is the PlayStation Network down for you today? What connection error codes are you seeing and if the service is down for you, what location are you in? We’ve reached out to PlayStation for comment on why the status page still states Online.
Update: It’s worth noting, we have seen problems signing into PSN on both PS4 and PS3. Let us know the platform you are using as well. The Sony Entertainment Network website sign-on isn’t working either.
