There are increasing reports that Sony’s PSN online services are offline, leaving thousands of players unable to connect to online services.
Outages are being seen popping up on independent website Down Detector, which is showing a large increase in issues affecting the PlayStation Network.
According to Down Detector, 76 per cent of PS4 users are unable to log in to the PSN, while 21 per cent of people aren’t able to play online.
The outage map on Down Detector is showing the affected areas being the UK, Europe and parts of Australia at the time of writing.
People are commenting online about how they are getting error messages that the PSN is undergoing maintenance, but the official PlayStation server status website is currently showing no issues to online services.
“Just had update drop from psn everyone check”, one user wrote on Down Detector, while another frustratedly mentioned an error code “IF i try and activate as main ps4 i get this error message: np-34957-8”.
Comments are still flooding the page now, with well over 2,000 reports that the PSN service is currently down.
There was a huge spike in reported outages at around 10am BST and people are still seeing problems when trying to access online or play games.
Down Detector is an independent website which collects information on whether services are working properly or not.
The official Twitter page dedicated to PlayStation online help hasn’t properly acknowledged any outages, but it has tweeted out a support link for those who have connectivity issues.
