PSN is down according to Sony's server status page, with issues coming just as the weekend arrives.
Here's what we know so far.
PSN Server Status - Connection Problems
These issues are described with the following: "You might have difficulty launching games, apps, or network features. We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience."
But while Sony hasn't acknowledged the server problems anywhere yet, affected game developers have.
These new PSN issues come just 1 day after Xbox Live experienced an 8+ hour outage.
While PlayStation enjoyed a nice viewership boost with Xbox Live going down just ahead of the first PS State of Play of 2021, Xbox may get the last laugh if PSN connection problems worsen.
