The Playstation Network went down early today for no particular reason. Sony realised the downtime earlier and responded with a generic it’ll be back ASAP response.

Sony have since labelled it as “maintenance” but, it was not planned, it was an unexpected outage. Some users have reported being able to sign in the network, so it seems it is varying from user to user, however, the store seems to be down for everyone.

Last year, the Playstation Network experienced a long period of downtime after the PSN was hacked by Anonymous, however, we do hope it’s something a bit… smaller.. this time!

We will keep you updated!
