Sony’s PlayStation Network Is Suffering Outages, on Today of All Days


If you’re already logged into the PlayStation Network and getting your holiday shopping done right now, well, better hurry and get through that digital check-out, because PSN has been up and down all day today. The outages don’t just effect shopping, either! If you wanted to get in some rounds of Destiny on your day off, that might not work either—plus, video and music services have been up and down as well.

If you’re the sort to feel sorry for a massive corporate juggernaut on today of all days, then pity Sony for all the sales they’ll lose on such a popular shopping-oriented day. Meanwhile, everybody else who can’t connect to PSN should continue to click on the icon and reload it obsessively, which won’t help anything, but it’ll feel helpful. Almost as fun as waiting in line in a brick-and-mortar store, right? Welcome to the future, everybody.
