PlayStation Network suffering issues. Again [UPDATE]

Update 2:

It seems Sony has fixed The PlayStation Network issues with the current status showing as “All services are up and running.”

Current PSN status.

Update 1:

The current PSN outage appears to be mainly affecting Europe. Specifically the UK according to downdetector.co.uk. There is still no official word from Sony other than “You may have some difficulty launching games, applications or online features. Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience.”

Original Story:

Users attempting to access certain features on their PlayStation 4 are being met with server issues.

Yes, for the third time in 3 days PSN is down. 

According to Sony,

“You may have some difficulty launching games, applications or online features. Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience.”

The current issues were reported at 15:48GMT today (28/01/18).

Monster Hunter World released last Friday and seemed to kick start the recent PSN issues.

PSN has been having issues since Friday. It’s worth noting that two big name releases hit on Friday. Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FighterZ. While they were also released on Xbox, Xbox Live has been online all weekend with issues only affecting these two games and not Xbox Live in general.

With the recent Fortnite issues seemingly only affecting PlayStation 4 players, is it time to ask why Sony is unable to make PSN as reliable as Xbox Live, yet charge £10 per year more for the service.
