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
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.
