Just a day after a massive outage on Xbox Live, Sony’s PlayStation Network has been having problems for several hours. The problem on this end is a little different, and based on reports it might only affect certain games. Sony’s PSN Status page reports that “You may have problems launching games, apps or network functions” on platforms including the PS Vita, PS3, PS4 and PS5.
Some people have had trouble getting online to play Call of Duty: Warzone or Minecraft, while other games such as Fortnite seem to be accessible. When I tried to access a few games on my PS5, Fall Guys worked, but Call of Duty and Destruction AllStars could not connect to matchmaking.
The service status page says this problem started around 6:33 PM ET, but gamers online noticed problems several hours earlier and a look on DownDetector shows reports of problems peaking as early as 1 PM ET. At least in this case, it looks like most people won’t have to go offline to play their games, and may just have to switch titles until it’s fixed.
