PSN DOWN: PlayStation Network not working for thousands of PS4 gamers
Gamers are facing a frustrating morning as the PSN PlayStation Network appears to be down.
The popular service seemed to hit trouble around late last night (we even had trouble watching Netflix around 11.30 with constant error messages) and it has seemingly continued throughout the night, with many fans still unable to access the online service.
Independent website Down Detector has received thousands of reports that PSN is down across the UK and Europe.
The outage tracker monitors social mentions around certain topics to detect outages across the world.
And Sony's own Network Status Page is also showing services as being disrupted this morning.
“You may have some difficulty launching games, applications, or online features,” a message from Sony reads.
“Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience.

There's no word on when the issues will be fixed but given that this has seemingly been rumbling on throughout the night – we still don't know how Jessica Jones S2 ended – then it's possible that this is a major outage that Sony won't have fixed anytime soon.
This obviously means that a large number of online-only games like Fortnite and Destiny 2 are largely unplayable.
To make matters worse for PS4 users, a massive Fortnite 5.3 update is planned for this morning and that will likely be on hold until the PSN issues are resolved.
