PlayStation players are experiencing several issues with the PlayStation Network. However, not every PS5 and PS4 player is going through severe problems.
Following the outage on the PlayStation Network, there is a stern effect on the PS Store, PS Now cloud gaming services, games, apps, and other features.
The status page for Sony’s PlayStation now reads, “Some services are experiencing difficulties,” and that the issues began at around 8:30 AM ET this morning.
Some employees at The Verge were experiencing PlayStation Plus tech problems while attempting to play Elden Ring, but others were unaffected.
Although the PS5 is currently available in all 50 states and four Canadian provinces, there may be a local element to the issue — thus far, everyone we’ve looked at in the Midwest and Canada has a working PS5, but everyone in New York receives error messages.
Reports are more dispersed among readers, with individuals across the Midwest having difficulties, while others are able to connect.
Sony hasn’t said anything about the problem since 9:41 a.m. ET, and there’s no word on when things will get back to normal.
Some gamers are having problems with their PS Plus subscription, such as receiving errors when attempting to start games or accessing cloud saves.
If you’re getting this notification, you should not renew your subscription for another year, since it won’t aid in your recovery.
It’s uncertain whether these issues are connected to the just-released PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 system update, as those who were still online were able to upgrade without issue.
The Japanese PlayStation Twitter account acknowledged the outage as well. The tweet reads, “PSN (including PlayStation® Store) may not be accessible at the moment.”
“We apologize for any inconvenience caused to our clients. We’re working on a solution, so please be patient.”
There is currently no timetable for when PlayStation’s services will be completely restored.
