[UPDATE] The PSN had issues, seems to be recovering

UPDATE: Managed to get on Destiny 2 but it keeps on kicking me off, giving the “lost connection” error, Down Detector is reporting a fall in “PSN Down” tweets so it might be fixed. Or not.

Original story below.

Reports are coming in the of problems with the PSN. Twitter is littered with tweets and I can confirm that although I can log on to the PSN, Destiny 2 is having issues and will not connect. The reporting site Down Detector is also showing a missive spike in reports that started just a few minutes ago.

Sony’s official service page shows everything is up and running but that usually takes a while to be updated. There are also reports that Twitch is having problems and many are suggesting that the Fortnite Live Event that is was scheduled for tonight may have caused a surge in traffic which has knocked out the services. It seems that you can log in to the PSN, and the store seems to work, but matchmaking within some games is borked.

As far as I can tell the problem seems to be global, but that’s just based off post from Twitter. We will keep an eye on things and let you know when the PSN has returned to stability.

While you wait, why not grab yourself a game in the end of year PSN sale, there’s plenty of big games on offer, which you can browse on the PlayStation Store. We don’t have a full list, but here’s what Sony have featured on the first page of the store and some highlights from beyond:
