According to multiple reports from gamers around the Internet, the PlayStation Network was iffy all weekend.
Many had trouble connecting while others said they kept getting knocked offline. Sony was doing some maintenance at one point but the connection issues seemed to persist beyond that maintenance.
Sony did confirm problems with the Account Management and PlayStation Store, which were giving some people fits over the weekend. It's hard to download a game when you can't keep a connection in place, you know? And of course, every time this happens, everyone worries that something worse is going on because…well, because unfortunately, Sony has earned that reputation.
Still having trouble signing in? Or are you back online?
