We can confirm that PSN is down and not working on February 2, 2017 with what appears to be sudden but not scheduled maintenance.
We were alerted to PSN login problems from our outage page as the complaints are pouring in there and on Twitter with gamers in the UK especially unhappy that they cannot play PS4 or PS3 games online after school or work.
Above is confirmation that there are issues with the network at the moment and we are waiting for an official statement from Sony acknowledging the outage which is preventing thousands from playing at the moment.
As we determine how serious this PSN outage is right now, leave us a comment below which region is having problems and what game you were trying to play before it stopped working.
