Bad news for PlayStation and Nintendo users, since some services are going through technical difficulties.
First, we have PlayStation Network, the online platform of PlayStation 4 that at the moment is having connection problems. According to Sony, it is “aware that some users are having issues redeeming vouchers on PSN.” However, some players are reporting that the inconveniences are greater and that they cannot access the online service in general.
Meanwhile, Nintendo said it is working to solve some connection problems related to the online store. “We apologize for any issues you may be experiencing with Nintendo eShop. We are working on it and hope to have this resolved soon,” the company explained on Twitter.
Christmas is the perfect time to give away consoles, so new users register for these online services, which is surely causing problems. Xbox LIVE, on the other hand, is totally stable.
We will keep you informed of any updates made by the companies.
