Baby don't let me down

The great PSN outage of Christmas 2014 may now be a distant memory, but we're hearing reports that the network is currently being a bit naughty for some unlucky users.

After running a few tests, we can confirm that everything's working on our end, including the store, friends list, and the PS4's what's new section, but nevertheless, the official PlayStation Twitter account says that the company is aware of the problem, and, of course, "engineers are on the case and investigating".

We'd dare to guess that the service is still under heavy strain – especially since millions of new users will have signed into the network over the past couple of months or so – so if you're unable to connect right now, try not to worry too much.
