PSN Appears To Be Down On PS4 With NW-31201-7 Error

The dreaded NW-31201-7 error has shown up for those signing into PS4, which means that the servers may be unavailable. This doesn’t appear to be the case on PS3, however, as users are able to sign in there.

I'm on PSN right now. Nothing wrong in Chicago.

JoGam1558d ago (Edited 1558d ago )

Im online too, until I try to connect to a multiplayer game. It says I need to subscribe to Playstation Plus. I have Plus till Dec of this year.

Army_of_Darkness1558d ago

Wtf Sony?! This crap better be resolved before I get home from work this evening. Otherwise I'm gonna punch my 360 in the face cause I don't want to damage my ps4......

Maddens Raiders1558d ago

Can't play bf4 and can't download any PS+content without getting this error message or a message telling me I need to subscribe to ps+ when I'm already a subscriber. Just came home early to jump into some Altai Range or Guilin Peaks mp only to be denied. Am disappoint.

Elimin81558d ago

it says undergoing maintenance for me.

AngelicIceDiamond1558d ago

Yeah its unfortunate. Hopefully Sony can resolve the issue in a timely manner.

I played TLOU online during the last two hours, mine worked fine until 5mins ago. Now it's time for a break :)

Boody-Bandit1558d ago (Edited 1558d ago )

I'm good here in Philadelphia Pa.
I've been okay the past couple hours. Maybe intermittent. Watch now that I posted this it will kick me off PSN.

It's beyond sad that all it takes is a game release to crash PSN. Stuff like this just goes to show how starting XBL on the original Xbox has put XBL a generation ahead of PSN and it will likely always be this way.

Right outside of Chicago I'm down

Deividas1558d ago (Edited 1558d ago )

Its errors for downloading, purchasing, and adding funds mostly...due to Minecraft. And now Sony is working on a fix hence why there is some maintenance.

MrSwankSinatra1558d ago

Sony needs to work on getting more data centers, this is beyond ridiculous.

TheBrit1558d ago (Edited 1558d ago )

oh well....

Sony has a history of issues like first PSN gets hacked and shut down, then they get DDOS by LizardSquad then they turn their cannon at MS, but instead they praise MS:

Str8Chaos741558d ago (Edited 1558d ago )

Well Microsoft is much more competent with networking than SONY, as it is one of the core components of their business.

Crazay1558d ago

1 game release should not be able to bring down their service. No matter who it is. I swear to god if next week Destiny brings down any service my head is going to pop

Because there is no problem. I'm getting sick of these fake click bait articles slandering Sony and PSN. I've been playing all day and not once have I experienced an issue. Anybody can say that any service is down without any proof and people believe it. I can do it too. Xbox Live has been hacked and is down.

jts18911558d ago

...Dude, it was on the official Sony support site.

Mkai281558d ago

Sir, we detained your best friend for stealing..
Killzoner99: He would never do something like that!
We got him on tape, see?
Killzoner99: That doesn't look like him!
Best friend: They caught me stealing.
Killzoner99: LIAR!!

TheSaint1558d ago

This is getting a bit much now, I can handle the odd outage but it's becoming commonplace.

If Minecraft can do this to the entire network, I can only imagine what Destiny release will do to the servers.

radler1558d ago

The amount of downtime and service interruptions that the PSN and Xbox Live have had this past year is utterly ridiculous and inexcusable. These companies insist that people pay a monthly fee to play games online, but neither of them can run a stable service. It's absurd and it saddens me that people will happily accept it and keep handing over money.

Jonny5isalive1558d ago

I promise you it will happen and I mentioned it before. Its what happened to 360 xmas 2007. Tons of new owners playing COD and halo 3 with us previous owners. I couldnt log on to play COD on xmas day but at night it worked fine.

With ps4 being the most popular console its for sure going to have tons of new owners on xmas this year, I hope they beef up their servers before then. I dont think sony is the type to anticipate such huge success in regards to servers for GAMING, not streaming. It just seems like they wait till there's a problem to do something. hope im wrong about that tho.

Am-No-Hero1558d ago

Man i was playing Velocity 2X then they kicked me out of it and locked the game ?!!! WTF even my Plus gone !! still there are 2 months remaining :(

Codewow1558d ago

You do know Playstation plus and internet is required to play all PS+ acquired games. So technically, those games aren't free.

Am-No-Hero1558d ago

but the PS Plus icon is gone !

Pen151558d ago (Edited 1558d ago )

Weirdly enough, my Plus icon has been gone for a while. I have Plus until December as well.

Edit: Someone disagreed with me? Okay.

Edit 2: Currently downloading.

Codewow1558d ago (Edited 1558d ago )

It seems you are experiencing quite the conundrum. Give it a bit of time before jumping to any sort of conclusion. Let Sony fix their problems and see if it fixes yours. If the servers are down and you can't connect, there's no way for a verification packet to be received on either end.

bluzone1558d ago

@Codewow not intending to call you out.
but you don't need internet to play PS+ games.
Just unplug your modem and try it. It works no problem.
Cheers Later.

nX1558d ago

Set your console as primary, it should work then.

xActionBasturdx1558d ago

Yea i was without the internet for a day when my modem went out fron a lightning strike but i was still able to play mercenary kings without a problem

wsoutlaw871558d ago

internet is not required to play plus games as long as you are on the primary playstation. It only checks like once a month.

Got done playing it, unlock the rifle. It shows I got Plus, all Plus/Free games I can play. But games I brought through PSN, well they are locked.

Nineball21121558d ago

When I try to check my messages on my phone app, I get the following message:

"Sony Entertainment Network is currently undergoing maintenance"

zsquaresoff1558d ago (Edited 1558d ago )

Yup it's down here in Dubai as well.

Got the maintainace message.
