The PlayStation Network is down and has been for most of the afternoon.
The PSN status page says most PlayStation services are down, save for PlayStation Music. That means PS Vita, PS3 and PS4 players will have trouble with the following:
- Account Management: Signing in, account creation, editing account details
- Gaming and Social: Launching games, applications or online features
- PlayStation Video: Accessing content
- PlayStation Store: Buying, downloading, browsing and searching for content; redeeming codes
Soooo basically everything is down. Enjoy!
Comically, satire site The Chaser has published a ‘report’ which suggests the Australian NBN is currently down as Aussies are too busy hitting refresh to see how our Prime Minister is. Coincidence? Yes, wholly — but come on: you’ve got to laugh at times like this, eh?
The status page was last updated at 4.01pm AEST. We’ll let you know when things change.
