PlayStation network down for PS4 owners; Sony working on fix

Published on December 19, 2017

If you are among those who experienced connectivity problems with your PlayStation 4 to the official PlayStation Network, then you are not alone. It seems like most PlayStation 4 owners are experiencing the problem. According to VentureBeat, Sony has even acknowledged the problem and the firm said that they are working on a fix. As per the information provided with Sony Interactive Entertainment, the PlayStation Network is currently undergoing an outage. Engineers at Sony are working on getting the issue fixed.

Fortunately for most, only a limited number of PlayStation 4 owners are affected by PlayStation Network connectivity issues. The affected individuals are facing problems while launching online multiplayer gaming options. Such facilities often require a stable and constant PSN connection.

Without this, players won’t even be able to launch single-player games. Numerous games such as Call of Duty: WWII, Star Wars: Battlefront II, and Destiny 2 are being prevented from booting up. Players will end up facing issues while launching video services like Netflix, Hulu and even Amazon for that matter.

Sony was quick to acknowledge the problem. The company even updated its website at around 3:31 p.m. Pacific time with the following message, “Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. And we thank you for your patience.” Over the years, the company has worked hard on improving the reliability of PSN’s servers.

To recall, they had a particularly bad time in December 2014 when their PSN faced a cyber-attack. Post that, they have never really experienced an outage. Sony’s PSN is not the only gaming network experiencing problems. Microsoft’s Xbox Live also goes down at times, despite the fact that they claim to be the “most reliable,” in the market.
