“Is PSN down?” There are widespread reports of Sony’s Playstation Network “PSN” being down / offline as users claim to be unable to connect. Users are hoping that this outage is not a repeat of the events in April 2011 when the PSN outage lasted over 3 weeks in result of a hack. User data was reported to be compromised.
UPDATE: Playstation Network status has been updated to note: “The PlayStation Network is currently: Experiencing Connectivity Issues.” on Playstation support forums.
UPDATE 2: Playstation Network should now be back online for users. Reports from users indicate that they CAN log in and connect successfully.
