Replace: PSN is down and Sony’s issues proceed into the weekend for sure on-line gaming and performance. We are able to sign-in to PlayStation Community, however like yesterday, we now have restricted performance.
PSN is down with a serious outage proper now, based on Sony’s official PlayStation Community standing web page – and the truth that we won’t log in proper now on our PS4. On-line gaming on PS5 can also be down, based on Twitter customers, however we won’t first-hand check that immediately – not everybody has the brand new console because of PS5 restock shortages.
“You may need problem launching video games, apps, or community options,” confirms Sony’s official PSN standing web page.
There are not any recognized options to repair PSN being down on the consumer finish. You’ll be able to register to the PlayStation Community and PlayStation Retailer, however on-line gaming would not seem to work on some video games.

Sunday’s ongoing PSN outage truly began a number of days in the past, based on the corporate’s standing web page. There is a timestamp connected to the posting, suggesting PSN went down on Friday, February 26. Nonetheless, consumer complaints on Twitter appear to predate Sony’s official timestamp by at the least 24 hours.
Individuals who simply purchased the PS5 are affected, together with homeowners of the PS4, PS3 and PlayStation Vita. It isn’t clear if each on-line sport is down proper now as a result of PSN outage, judging from Sony’s language and our personal experiences. Xbox Dwell went down final week and Microsoft disclosed far more granular info on its standing web page.
PSN is down and the outage now spans at the least three days, however this is not the primary or longest downtime for Sony’s on-line gaming community.
Famously, PSN went down in 2011 for twenty-four days, plus an extra 42 days for the then-budding PlayStation Retailer. In that rather more dire case, it was later confirmed that hackers had exploited PSN and uncovered customers’ info, based on Sony. At present’s PSN outage appears to be unlucky weekend downtime.
