This is the second time PSN has experienced issues this weekend. The last time this happened, it was apparently the work of a hacker group, although there is no info yet on the downtime cause this time around.

Let us know if you are experiencing any issues with PSN on your PS3 and PS4 in the comments below.

    Playstation better get its fucking act together, or I’m out. My brothers and our friends have begged me to ditch PSN for years. This may be just the motivation I need..

      All the money these companies make off us consumers, and they can’t spend a bigger portion of their budgets on ways to stop this from happening? Hire your own punk hackers to counter these losers.

      Xbox Live has gone down more than PSN has over the past 6 months. Xbox Live went down as well. Xbox Live isn’t more dependable. Stop trolling and grow up you reject.

      Xbox Live just went down as well. Steam went down on the 7th of May. Grow up and stop trolling.

    I’m wondering if a certain “group” is behind this. I can’t even use the video services. I do not have a functioning laptop so until I can log in, I’ll be sort of cross. But I will not be cross with either Sony or PlayStation. As always, the companies providing both hard and soft ware won’t be blamed by me even if yadda yadda all that good stuff. Again, you have my gratitude, PlayStation and Sony.
