PSN Is Up and Running After Facing Widespread Connectivity Issues

Sony’s PlayStation Network is back online and is running once again after experiencing widespread connectivity issues for hours.

During the outage, users were unable to access the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Now, PlayStation Vue, PlayStation Video, online multiplayer and other social features.

User started reporting issues on Twitter and other social platforms earlier.

Thankfully, Sony’s PSN status page now assures us that all services on the PSN are “up and running.” While PSN being down isn’t something new but what was the cause of this widespread outage? Sony hasn’t shared specifics with us but what’s concerning is that the notorious wanna-be hackers known as “Lizard Squad” were seen claiming responsibility almost immediately after fans started reporting issues.

The group taking credit for it doesn’t mean they were the cause of this outage.

Anyways, some of the users who tried to log-in to the PlayStation Network were prompted with the following message.

To sign in, an update of your account information is required. An email message with instruction has been sent to [your email address]. It may take up to 24 hours to receive this message

PSN and XBLA both came under a cyber attack late last year and since then both networks have experienced issues. Unlikely, but we may still be experiencing aftershocks of those attacks. However, in the case of PSN we can’t say this for sure as the network is often facing downtime.

The good news is, players can enjoy their favorite games online this weekend, hopefully, without any further issues.
