PSN down February 1 with server status not working

By Alan Ng - Feb 1, 2016

It looks like we have our first PSN of February right now, as many PS4 and PS3 gamers are complaining that PSN is down on February 1 2016.

This is somewhat strange, as the official PlayStation server status checker website shows that there are no problems whatsoever with all services highlighted in green.

Tell that to thousands of gamers on Twitter though who have just been kicked from the likes of FIFA 16, Rocket League, Destiny and Black Ops 3 with servers down for them.


Evidence of PSN not working on February 1 2016 can be seen above with the live comments that we saw just minutes ago.

We’re not sure how widespread this outage is, but we do know that Sony’s server status website is not updating in realtime which is a real problem – what is the use of it otherwise?

Is PSN down for you right now or is it just us? Please state your location so we know how widespread it is – head back here for the latest updates.
