Sony confirm PSN sign-in problems with offline status

By Daniel Chubb - Dec 27, 2014

Sony confirmed there is PSN sign-in problems a couple of hours ago and this follows days of the PlayStation Network status unchanged, which is currently stating offline. One of the most reported error codes right now is NP-35000-8 and this takes place when trying to sign-in to PSN, although not even Sony have been able to fix the issues at this time.

You can see a screenshot of the NP-35000-8 error message below, which comes with the message “Sony Entertainment Network is currently undergoing maintenance”.

Within the last couple of minutes, Sony left the update below in a reply to one gamer. As you can see, they know about the PSN sign-in problems “on PS4 and PS3” with their “engineers” investigating the cause.


If Sony is still “investigating” what is causing the issues logging in, then this means they don’t have a solution just yet. This will no doubt only frustrate gamers further, especially after a long downtime thanks to Lizard Squad hitting servers with a DDOS.


Are you able to sign-in to PSN today and if it’s not working, what platform are you on and what city are you located in? Around 11 hours ago, we saw Sony explain Vita, PS3, and PS4 online services were coming back online, so the current issues will only confuse.

We know many of our readers have patience, but it must be running out by now after so much downtime. Feel free to leave a comment with where you think the blame lies as well. This report follows one earlier today in regard to code NW-31194-8, although Sony has now confirmed the issues and revealed problems at the sign-in.
