Don’t freak out if you can’t get online with PlayStation Network.
PSN is down for maintenance. The service went offline at 9:30 p.m. Pacific (11:30 p.m. Eastern), and Sony says it will return to full functionality at 11:30 p.m. Pacific. This should only affect certain aspects of the online infrastructure for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita. Specifically, account management and PlayStation Store won’t work. You may also run into some other issues, but Sony should resolve everything in a few hours.
Here’s the full statement from Sony about the downtime:
“Our network is currently undergoing routine maintenance for approximately 2 hours on 03/01/2016, 9:30 p.m. to 03/02/2016, 11:30 p.m. Anyone who already has an account can still sign in to their PlayStation Network profile, play games, and use most applications while this maintenance is carried out. You will not be able to access Account Management, PlayStation Store, and PlayStation Video during this maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience. We recommend activating your PS4 as your primary console before maintenance begins so you can continue to play most games and use third party services during maintenance.”
We’ll let you know if issues persist beyond this window.
