PlayStation Network Down: PS5 and PS4 connection problems in the night

PlayStation Network Down

Last night there were serious problems with the servers of the PlayStation Network, which prevented many players from accessing the multiplayer component of their favorite titles and social features on all Sony consoles: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PS3 and PS Vita.

According to what can be seen on DownDetector, the first problems occurred yesterday evening, while the first peak in reports was recorded around midnight. The connection problems persisted for most of the night, and only in the early morning did the number of reports begin to decrease.

A quick glance on the PlayStation Status page shows that the problems have not yet been of the all solved. At the time of writing, gaming and social features are still highlighted in red and accompanied by the following warning message: "Affected Platforms: PS Vita, PS3, PS4, PS5. Affected Services: You may have difficulty launching games, apps or network functions. We are trying to fix this quickly. Thanks for your patience. " The last update, in any case, dates back to 00:33, so it is possible that in the meantime the situation has improved. How is it going to you? We look forward to hearing from you in the comments section.

An outage of Sony’s PlayStation Network that began Friday afternoon appeared to be persisting on Saturday morning. According to an update on the status page timestamped 6:33PM (not clear what time zone that is) on February 26th, the affected platforms are PS Vita, PS3, PS4, and PS5.

“You might have difficulty launching games, apps, or network features. We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience,” the update reads.

Engadget reported that the outage may be affecting some games but not others; Fortnite appeared to be accessible but Minecraft and Call of Duty: Warzone were not.

The PlayStation Network outage began a day after Microsoft’s Xbox Live service suffered a global outage for five hours. On February 10th, the PlayStation Network was down worldwide for about an hour.

We’ve reached out to Sony for details about what’s causing the outage, how widespread it is, and when it may be resolved, and will update when we learn more.
