The PlayStation Network is unavailable in both the USA and the UK this morning.
The official PlayStation Blog confirmed this morning that “certain functions” of PSN are down in the USA.
Later, the European PlayStation Twitter feed confirmed that the service is unavailable over here too.
“PSN is currently down for maintenance,” the message reads. “We’ll update you with timeframes as soon as we can.”
This doesn’t appear to have been planned downtime, and there’s no word from Sony on exactly what’s happened, or what’s being done to solve things.
But it does mean that users are seemingly unable to login to the PlayStation Network, either via their consoles or via the web.
We’ll bring you more information the very second we know it. (Well, maybe a few minutes longer, so we can write up a news story on it. That tends to be how things work in BeefJack Towers.)
