It is one of the most popular gaming platforms worldwide. But it appears that the PlayStation Network is experiencing issues this morning. According to Down Detector, the problems started at around 09:05 BST and affected users around the world. While the reason for the outage remains unclear, of those who reported issues, 76% said they could not sign in, 14% were struggling with gameplay, and 9% were having problems with the PlayStation Store. PlayStation claims that there are no known issues and that users should be able to access their accounts.

The reason for the issues remains unclear, although, on its help page, PlayStation explained:

“You may experience somewhat slower or delayed game downloads because we’re working with ISPs to manage download traffic. “We believe it’s important to do our part to address internet stability concerns as an unprecedented number of people are staying home and practicing social distancing. We appreciate the support and understanding of our community.”

Several frustrated users have taken to Twitter to discuss the outage. One user said:

“And mid-game to PlayStation?! Perffffffffffect timing for the Network to go down.” Another wrote: “Welp PlayStation just told me to stop playing Call of Duty. It Signed me out of the Network and will not let me sign back in. Constant error message. Next-gen getting really dicey bruh.”

And one added:

“What is going on with the PlayStation network? I have been knocked off my account and signed out twice during my twitch stream, and now I can’t even get signed back in?! Is the Network down, or is maintenance happening?!?!”

If you are still having problems connecting, PlayStation recommends that you run a network test. It said: “Please run a network test in [Settings] > [Network] and try again. If you have issues with completing the test, please use Fix & Connect here:”
