Many individuals have reported that they were suddenly kicked out of the network abruptly while they were trying to play their favorite games , and have had trouble logging in ever since , and yet PlayStation support is still showing that everything is up and running.
There is no scheduled maintenance and hence its more than likely a network failure of some sort . The outages though have been affecting a bunch of gamers since yesterday , but so far no official information acknowledgement has come forth thus far.
The same issues are also being reported on reddit.
“Happened here as well, was in a rainbow 6 game and everyone in the game got booted from parties into game chat.” wrote one user.
While another said: “The Call of y Duty servers all went to s**t about maybe 15 minutes ago”
website monitoring service Down Detector also shows the PSN being down and out , and the outage seems to be affecting gamers in the UK and the US. At the time of writing this it appears that the outages were being experienced by a few players since yesterday , but now its affecting a significant number , and hence its come into notice.
We will continue to update this story , but as of yet there is no official detail about what is the cause of the outage.
