Update: The service has returned to normal.
Original: The PlayStation Network, a network that connects PlayStation players around the world, is having connection problems again. This means that their users cannot enjoy the multiplayer of several premieres.
According to the status page of the PSN, the situation affects services related to account management, gaming, and social elements. In addition, there are problems accessing PlayStation Now, PlayStation Video, PlayStation Store and PlayStation Music from PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
The good news is that Sony Interactive Entertainment is aware of this situation and is investigating what is the problem to solve it.
“We are aware that some users are experiencing issues logging into PSN. Thanks for your patience as we investigate: https: // status.playstation.com,” Sony mentions on the status page.
These connection errors come at a bad time, since a few hours ago was the premiere of Dragon Ball FighterZ and Monster Hunter World, the much-expected titles that have an important focus on online multiplayer. So, those who have purchased the PS4 version of these releases will have to wait a while to access their online features.
And what about you, have you been affected by these connection problems? Tell us in the comments below.
