If you had any problems with the PlayStation Network (PSN) yesterday, don’t worry – it was not just you. The service suffered an outage, with multiplayer, store services, and more going down for around an hour.
It was a global problem. The official Ask PlayStation Japan Twitter account reported the issue, and many European users reported it as well. Everything seems to be fine now, with the PSN status page showing that all components of PNS are up and running.
During the outage, multiple users had difficulties downloading items from the store, playing multiplayer games, checking leaderboards, and loading the PlayStation app on their phones. Reports peaked around 44,000 after they started to flow in at about 5 PM ET.
All of the categories, account management, gaming and social, PlayStation Now, PlayStation Video, PlayStation Store, and PlayStation Direct, were affected for about an hour.
