PlayStation owners are facing a frustrating bank holiday evening as the PSN PlayStation Network appears to be down or at least experiencing a multitude of issues.
The popular service seemed to hit trouble around ten minutes ago with many fans still unable to access the online service.
Independent website Down Detector has received over 5,000 reports that PSN is down across the UK and Europe.
The outage tracker monitors social mentions around certain topics to detect outages across the world and it's seen a sharp increase in reports this morning (as you can see below)
Sony's own Network Status Page is showing services as being fine and the @AskPlayStation Twitter account has reassured fans there are no issues, despite several responses to the contrary.
Users are reporting that their PS4 is showing PSN currently undergoing maintenance, but there is no maintenance currently according to PlayStation.
Many more are also reporting the following error code: WS-37432-9
There's no word on when the issues will be fixed but most core PSN services are offline.
This includes everything from buying games from the PlayStation Store, to logging in and changing console options.
