In what’s hopefully just a blip, it appears that for some, the PlayStation Network has gone back down for ‘maintenance’ again, with that message that we’ve all been used to seeing for weeks.
Earlier today the PSN stirred back into life, bolstered by a new firmware, and this evening here in the UK we were back in business, changing passwords and signing in online.
However, in the last half hour we’ve heard that many users are now getting messages that the PSN is down for maintenance, and are unable to sign in.
We’re assuming that, at this stage, this is all just a by-product of heavy traffic and everyone trying to reset and sign-in at the same time, and that in a short while it’ll iron itself out.
Sony’s Steve Reynolds has tweeted that he’s aware of the issue. “There is a problem with PSN in the latest countries we rolled out to (except UK, IRE & ME),” he said minutes ago.
“We’re dealing with it.”
