Looks like the impending release of Monster Hunter: World and the opening of God of War pre-orders has temporarily pulled the PlayStation Network to its knees, as outages are being reported in some territories. Sony, to its credit, has already issued an update stating that engineers are on the case and working to resolve all issues.
To be fair to the platform holder, it’s been quite a while since we had to write one of these articles, as the service has surely stabilised a lot in recent years. We’ll update if the issues worsen, but we’re going to guess that all will be resolved swiftly. In the meantime, you can get status updates on PSN via Sony’s website.
Update: Things seem to be resolved, both on PSN and Push Square. Both down at the same time? Conspiracy?
