The network is currently having some issues affecting PS3, PS4, PS5, PS Vita and web services. Sony continued a status page that it works to fix the issues, but players may have “difficulty launching games, apps, or network functions” in the meantime.

The issues also affect (which may hinder those looking to stream games at the moment) and all aspects of the PlayStation Store. They started around 8:30 am Eastern time.

The issues come after updates from Sony for PS4 and PS5 earlier on Wednesday. Some players have commented on and elsewhere that their console cannot verify a PlayStation Plus subscription or connect to online services.

The updates will (at least once the issues are resolved) allow PS4 and PS5 players to create or join Open and Closed parties. Sony has tweaked the trophy card UI on PS5 and added more accessibility options, including mono audio for headphones. Those with US and UK registered accounts can also test voice commands on PlayStation 5.
