Looks like Sony’s joining the system “hiccups” as the PlayStation Network is also hounded with connectivity issues.
Just like the other console manufacturers, Sony couldn’t seem to identify yet what the cause of network problems is but nevertheless assured players that they are doing their best to troubleshoot and arrest the network problem.
The network’s reassurance in fixing the problem is shown through their twitter statements. Their proposed solution to arrest the network problems: Updates.
Last week, Microsoft has announced problems as regards Xbox Live connectivity specifically multi-player issues and Cloud-saves stating that cloud saves would not push through at times. Earlier this week, users of the Wii U complained of multiplayer issues specifically for Black Ops 2 stating that multiplayer connections could not be established as well.
One question comes into mind though. How come in the advent of technological advancement for console gaming, manufacturers’ network support doesn’t seem to keep up with the pace? This therefore may bring doubt if it would be still wise to purchase the upcoming high-end consoles who may boast of advance features that couldn’t be maximized just because of potential glitches in their respective network supports.
Fortunately for Sony, it seems to be eager to appease and at the same time fix the said PlayStation Network glitch. The website is the psn down, basically is self-explanatory and tells you the status of the PlayStation Network and the regions affected. For both the European and the US sites, a PlayStation Forum and a Knowledge Center respectively, has been added as well. With these tools, Sony seems to appease audiences with assurance that swift work is done to arrest the further progression of this network problem.
