PlayStation Network had an issue Tuesday evening. For about 45 minutes, Sony’s PlayStation Network status page showed that all of its services were experiencing issues, which affected signing into your account and connecting to PlayStation Now and the PlayStation Store. However, the site shows that everything is “up and running.”
It’s unclear exactly how widespread the issues were. PS5’s PlayStation Store had trouble loading content. Some others were having more severe problems connecting online, including “error code WS-37469-9,” as shown in this thread on the r/PS5 subreddit. Downdetector shows there were more than 12,000 user reports of problems.
Epic Games tweeted during the outage, pointing Fortnite PlayStation players who may have been experiencing log-in issues to watch Sony’s PlayStation Network status site.
