The PlayStation Network appears to be currently down, despite no scheduled downtime today. Sony are aware of the issue, however, and posted the following tweet on the official PlayStation account: “PSN and Stores are currently unavailable. We’ll let you know as soon as they’re back online.”
Attempting to access the store doesn’t even show an error message like during maintenance periods. We just get a timeout issue after a while. Unfortunately, Sony hasn’t provided any further information on the downtime, so it’s unclear when the issue will be resolved.
