Uh oh, it looks like the PlayStation Network's down. We can't sign into the service here at Push Square Towers, and we're getting buried in reports from unhappy users. Sony's official status website suggests that there's nothing wrong, but clearly, that isn't the case.
We're not looking to jump the gun here, but it's at least worth mentioning that Sony announced a price increase for PlayStation Plus earlier this week in North America and Canada. Here's hoping that this outage is just a blip, and isn't some sort of reactionary attack. But with how outraged people can get these days, we wouldn't be at all surprised.
We'll keep you updated with anything that we learn.
Update: Thankfully, the PSN seems to be back up and working for us, meaning that this seems to have just been a small hiccup. Phew.
