From PlayStation Universe: "The PlayStation Network is currently experiencing major problems worldwide with thousands locked out of online games."
God of war did this
Lol God of War broke the internet again. Nice Sam lol I like it
It just came back up for me, store, friendslist, ect. Us, central Its been out majority of the day though
Like they ever resolved *THAT* plot-line!
I giggled reading yours, @Zombiekiller and @oof46's comments!😜My wife asked what I was laughing at and told her then she got tickled!
Yeah its having some issues right now, I'm sure they'll fix it soon
These things happen. Here's hoping the problem gets sorted out soon.
I'm not, but that's ok for now cause I'm hunting in Horizon
Final Fantasy IX=What's Internet/PSN? Times like these are when it's great reason to have a few old school games in the library.
i guess its some services fortnite wasnt working for me but nba live 18 was
It started this morning as I had no profile or friends list. Now that works but I have limited online functionality.
Same here. I couldn't load my profile on the phone app earlier but trophies and PSN store worked fine.
Me too np problems here.
My friendslist isn't working, but I can get online.
I was wondering wth was going on when I was able to go to the psn store and not see friends. Thought it was my connection, doesn't matter I'm not playing any online games anyways. Also emulators these days.
PlayStation 4 app emulators or pirated games?
Still down. Can play online, but no PSN store or friends.
The only thing that is "down" right now is any of the social stuff - the indicator for the store is green.
Playstation Now appears to be offline as well
I can't seem play games online, no friends are coming up, Call of Duty WW2 updated fine, Dark Souls 3 is Offline only. East Coast U.S.
Bf1 and bf2 works
Yeah was playing Fortnite then had a break. After I saw the news on the Internet I came play Swbf2 but never noticed any problem.
This is one of many reasons why im a against a online only console. Just a box that are streaming games and need constant internet connection. If that happens to next gen with Sony or someone else, then I will not buy new "consoles" for next generation.
I'm with you. But people don't care. They pay for services like Playstation Now, they buy digital only....look at them now. Not being able to play. Single player games are the best and the ones that I own a physical copy of.
It makes me sad to think about how in a few decides even many of the great single-player games of today will be a mess on the used market. They won't have all the patches and the consolemakers may not have a way to download patches for games that old. Sure there will be ways to get the patches on the internet, but 10-20 years from now if you buy a post-PS2/GC/Xbox console and some used games, if you just pop the disk in you'll be stuck with an unpatched version of the game.
I'm confused, what does buying digital got to do with anything? Do you think digital copies of games can't be played offline? Because if that's what you think that would be incorrect.
I believe PS plus games need an internet connection to be played. But the point is that, if all software is online only, and even if you can download it, you will not keep your collection downloaded. Than when something like this happens and you really want to play a game that is not downloaded what do you do? Nothing. You won't be able to play.
PS plus games do not need an internet connection to be played.
Why can't you keep your collection downloaded? Did someone put a gun to your head and force you to delete it?
I got almost 100 PS4 games. I can't keep that all on the PS4 if they were digital only.
Being offline on a console or PC doesn't stop you from playing digital games anymore than playing those same games in disc form.
If you buy a digital game that is normally standalone or has network features you are not prevented from playing that game if the network goes down. Obviously, any network features (eg.the Souls/Bloodborne series) of the game will not work but everything else will. Games like PUBG, Neverwinter, Overwatch etc (digital or media) are effectively dead during a network or server outage. Like it or not it makes no difference if you install your game via physical media or digital download that game will only be impacted by a network or server outage if it requires a network connection. In other words "online only" games are effectively a platter or wasted disk space if you lose your network connection. BTW. I can still play PS+ games during a network outage providing they have single player or campaign capabilities. As an aside I have spent less than $300 USD on over 20 games (PSN sales can save you a considerable amount of money) and have over 60 PS+ games (ie. Free) full games in my library including some AAA games. I only have five games that came on physical media.
Yawn, I'm still playing. Glad I don't depend on the online service. I hope it isn't off for much longer because that sucks.
PS4s not online only fool. Lotta of games you can play offline.
Kkkkkk Every time PSN is down it become a huge news.
Is good to know this information.
It should, we paying this online especially now the majority of gaming consumers are on sony side
I did not even notice this and I was playing up to 6:00 am (I live in Australia) this morning and I was back online at 3:00 pm. Admittedly I was playing a standalone game but whenever the network goes down I do get a popup to inform me and I did not get a popup.
Same I'm in the UK. Maybe we r lucky I guess.
Seems most just can't access their online friends list but can still play online.
I have been playing FIFA and COD online for past 3hours with no issues
I guess that must mean that there are no issues for anyone else then /s
Remember PSN like XBox Live are worldwide and are a network of multiple linked servers (ie. The Cloud). What happens in one set of time zones may not impact other timezones.
Woah, wasn't expecting it to work for anybody, The headlines said "thousands affected" and the userbase is like 70million, thats almost like 100% /s
Good job they recently increased the UK price of psn by 25% and now I can't play online or see my friendslist.
Well PSN for Australia/Asia (Possibly the same for UK/Europe) is offering a 15-month for a 12-month price of PSN and you can stack them.
Oh that makes it ok the network isn't working then.
I can't get on anything online. Was just in the middle of getting my ass kicked in GT Sport, too. Damn you technology!
3 people obviously know better than I do.
They know you were winning in GT😉
I am offline as well.
I'm back online now. Hopefully you are too.
Been working in the UK all day.
Same East Coast USA
Good good neighbour
no issues here East coast
I can access only to Playstation Store but no party chat, no friend list, no share button. It's interesting. (ESL guy here)
I'm gaming right now, even though the status says down in PS4 settings, and I was online over the weekend when I read some other reports about PSN down. Don't know what's going on.
I'm online as well. I have been for about 4 hours. It may be certain areas. It would be better if these article specified locations of impact.
It was solved at 23:40 (11:40pm) CET, at least for Europe...
It's not only PSN. I had issues with Youtube too but it seems to be fixed.
I'm in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso and it is definitely down for me.
But you only play on Xbox. Is Xbox down? Not as surprising.
U drunk. Lots of us support multiple consoles and pay for service. Sucks no matter if it's sony/ms and nin
