Remember at the start of the generation when the PlayStation Network felt like it was held together with duct tape and prayers? It’s been pretty stable of late, and Christmas Day appears to have come and (almost) gone without a hitch. The service has been a little slow for those attempting to download and install enormous patches, but all in all we haven’t heard about any widespread issues at all.
It’s perhaps worth keeping in mind that someone, somewhere has had to eat their turkey and trimmings while monitoring the situation, so maybe pour one out for them before returning to Red Dead Online. It’s good to see things settled and stable, though – on a selfish level, it means we haven’t had to spend our afternoon monitoring the situation like we did a few years back. Yeah, that was fun. Not.
