[UPDATE] “External, internet-wide issues” are affecting the PlayStation Network

Well this is a new one. According to Sony the PlayStation Network is up and running without any problems but “external, internet-wide issues” are screwing things up. My PlayStation 4 is giving the usual “PlayStation Network is down for maintenance” message.

No one seems to know exactly what these “issues” are but here are some possibilities:

  • Climate change
  • Russian interference
  • Avengers: Endgame spoilers
  • Shortage of nice cups of tea
  • Leaves on the line
  • Brexit

Keep an eye on the PSN Status page to see when things are back to normal.

UPDATE: Sony say everything is back to normal now.
