Sony has been having quite a rough weekend following the disruptions taking place on its gaming platform’s network but the latest on the PlayStation Network (PSN) status suggest that things might be getting back to normal.
The PlayStation Network Status page revealed that the PSN had issues multiple times within a span of three days. Fortunately, this time it was not as serious as previous instances where all the services on the network were down. The problems affected online gaming as well as social services and a few online features, rendering them inaccessible to users.
“You may have some difficulty launching games, applications, or online features. Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience,” said Sony in one of its statements.
Some of the other services such as PlayStation Music, PlayStation Store, PlayStation Vue, PlayStation Video, PlayStation Now and account management were not affected. Fortunately, the PlayStation Network Status page has kept users updated so that they know when the problems were fixed and the services restored.
The executives at PlayStation even took extra steps by posting on Twitter about the issues. One of the posts particularly targeted those that were still having a hard time trying to access the online gaming platform. The tweet gave a guide on how users could remedy the situation by first logging out their accounts, shutting down their PS4, signing in through the website and then turning on their PS4 logging on once more.
The PlayStation Network Status has been updating users since Friday when the problems began, coincidentally after the launch of Monster Hunter: World and Dragon Ball FighterZ games. Some of the games that have been inaccessible to players as a result of the server-related problems include titles such as Destiny 2, Overwatch, and Fortnite. Sony has not revealed the details as to what caused the problems although it made sure that the PlayStation Network Status page was updated to keep users on the know.
