The PlayStation Network isn't having the best of weekends, is it? Connection errors began on Friday, but Sony sorted things out quite quickly. Unfortunately, the network is now struggling again -- and has been for most of the day. Users are reporting sign in issues and interrupted online functionality. Sony has acknowledged the problems via...
A timely reminder
Consider yourself warned: the PlayStation Network will be undergoing maintenance in just a couple of days, on the 23rd June. Fortunately for us lot here in the UK, the timing isn't too bad; the PS4 maintenance will take place in the morning, from 06:30AM until 08:30AM. However, that means the service will be tinkered with at...
We should be enjoying a nice comfy bed instead of penning this super early morning article, but, as they say, there's no rest for the wicked. There are numerous reports flying around claiming that the PlayStation Network is down. We've tried logging in ourselves with no success, and there seem to be more complaints by the minute on social...

The age of the outage
Well, this is starting to look bad, isn’t it? We understand that networks go wrong sometimes, but Sony’s got to ensure that the PlayStation Network stays online longer than this – if only to avoid a constant barrage of negative press. Indeed, there are reports around
What the heck does 'E-820001F7' mean?
We’ve been sat waiting for our Destiny beta code to appear all day, so it’s not exactly surprising that the PlayStation Network has collapsed mere moments after the first batch have gone out. Sony’s online status page notes that it’s “currently experiencing high volume and users may experience issues...
Take a break
There’s never been a better opportunity for you to mow the lawn or blitz through that copy of Anna Karenina that you picked up at the local car boot, as Sony has scheduled a window of PlayStation Network maintenance for today.

It's been a while

Be known, valued reader, that some facets of the PlayStation Store will be unavailable this coming Thursday, February 2nd

We're getting to the point where we can only imagine Sony has something brewing
That's what we'd like to believe. Because the amount of maintenance the PlayStation Network's getting lately has been pretty bizarre. It's not like this is a common thing. We remember in the 'olden' days, the PSN would get scheduled maintenance once a month at most...

The PlayStation Network was supposed to go down for maintenance last night
It was postponed. Instead it will go down for maintenance this afternoon, from 16:30 GMT. Insanely the service will remain offline until 07:00 GMT tomorrow morning. That's a lot of downtime. We can only suspect it has something to do with the PlayStation Store. Sony

August 30th is a bank holiday here in the UK
