PSN sign in problems, down with maintenance error

By Daniel Chubb - Oct 28, 2014

There’s a number of PSN sign in problems today that come with certain under maintenance error codes. If you try to login to PSN, it might seem down today with 8002A220, 8071053D, and other PS4 or PS3 error codes.

This is the message we have received from Product Reviews readers and with “PSN down” status reports on Twitter, or report sites like Down Today. One of our readers said moments ago, “I just got a message that an error has occurred, you have been signed out of PSN”. Another added, “I got the error 8002A22 after not being able to sign-in to PlayStation Network”.

PSN sign in problems with maintenance error

After looking at the PSN status page, it looks like there’s no scheduled maintenance today. So, we’d expect the current problems are related to too many connections or demand. This is happening on the same day of a few major firmware updates, which include PS4 2.0 and PS Vita 3.35 updates.

Is PSN down for you right now and if so, did you receive a particular error code? Leave a comment below with any codes, or sign in messages you received.

Sony hasn’t confirmed the current issues and we’ve reached out for comment. You can see a few tweets above within the last couple of minutes, which reveal the frustration currently being felt.
