For the second time in the last week, the PlayStation Network is currently down in Australia, and most likely the rest of the world too. It’s been down for the majority of the morning, and it’s not clear when we’ll see the service return.
Currently, gamers are unable to access the PlayStation Store, Account Management and subsequently general online gaming.
The recent spike in outages comes after Sony announced a price hike to PlayStation Plus in both the USA and Canada. A price increase has not yet been confirmed for Australia or New Zealand.
We're aware that users are experiencing issues logging into PSN. Thanks for your patience as we investigate. https://t.co/oLLCoPwIE1
