Playstation Network Playstation Psn Down Psn 102177 1920x1080

Update: Blimey, that was quick. The PlayStation Network seems to be coming back online after a short period of downtime. We're able to reconnect on our own PlayStation 4 systems, so it might be worth trying to do so yourselves again. Let's all breath a sigh of relief.

Original story: At the time of writing, the PlayStation Network appears to be down for many users, including ourselves. Reports are coming in across Reddit and Twitter of being unable to either connect to the internet or unable to play the latest online games such as Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.

Taking a look at, more than 6300 reports have been made in the past hour of PSN not working correctly. We're unable to connect ourselves, receiving messages such as "PSN is under maintenance" across the board. It comes at a worrying time too, with Ghost Recon: Breakpoint launching today in its early access phase and Destiny 2: Shadowkeep due to come back online in two hours time. All PlayStation Network services are listed as "up and running" on Sony's official website, but that clearly isn't the case right now.

Are you having trouble connecting to PSN? Lets us know in the comments below.
