PlayStation Network Is Down, Causing Problems For PS4 And PS5 Owners, The PlayStation Network is having a bad night on Tuesday. Sony’s PlayStation Network status page presently displays that all of the company’s services are down in some fashion, affecting things like login into your account and connecting to PlayStation Now and the PlayStation Store.
It’s not known how prevalent the problems are. I was able to connect online and send a message to a coworker in Bloodborne, however, the PlayStation Store on the PS5 is having problems loading a lot of material. Others, as indicated in this thread on the r/PS5 subreddit, are having more significant troubles connecting online, including “error code WS-37469-9.”
As of this writing, Downdetector has over 14,000 user reports of PlayStation Network difficulties.
Epic Games has also tweeted about the problem, directing Fortnite PlayStation users who are having trouble logging in to visit Sony’s PlayStation Network status page. Even after forcibly exiting and reloading Fortnite, I was able to get in and join a match, indicating that the issues don’t appear to be impacting everyone.
