Christmas Crash and Burn: Overloaded Servers

Angie Santiago from SpawnFirst writes: "It’s Christmas morning. Some kids stayed up until 12 to open their presents on Christmas Eve, and some slept merrily in their beds awaiting Santa’s arrival to tear into their presents when the sun rose on another Christmas morning. However, as gamers, there’s one thing we all should expect – overloaded servers. There are only a handful of times in a console’s lifetime that the servers will be overloaded: December 25th of every year, or on the launch day of a brand new console. Despite this being expected, people still complain about how they can’t log online to pump 5 clips into someone on Call of Duty or hide in the crowd to avoid their pursuer in Assassin’s Creed multiplayer." (PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

I had issues setting up my psn account and playing kzsf and dcuo. But, I was able to get past them pretty quickly by button mashing my way past the errors. Just keep trying if you are having issues. I've been able to play without any problems.
