PSN was down. Again. But this time, it didn’t last very long – relatively speaking. It was still down for a good chunk of the day, definitely enough to interrupt a lot of people’s plans.
The outage lasted about 10 hours.
Sony has yet to disclose the cause of this disruption, but everything’s back online now.
Sony confirmed account extensions via Twitter:
Thanks for your patience today – stay tuned for details on PS Plus, PS Now, and video rental extensions.
