PSN Hit by Another Outage: Friend List and More Unavailable (UPDATE)

on October 16, 2014 4:06 PM

The PSN is currently having trouble, and it’s not the first time in the last few months. Services like friend list and parties are currently unavailable, even if the PlayStation Store seems to be available as usual, and online gameplay is active.

The outage is confirmed on Sony’s own status page, even if no further details have been given.

Hopefully the effects of the promised investment in new servers for the PSN will come soon, because they seem to be sorely needed.

We’ll keep you updated on the evolution of the situation.

Update: the affected services are now going back online.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
