Are you f-ing serious, the PSN is down on Christmas morning? Great job Sony. Why does this not surprise me?

Well, to be honest, PSN will likely be offline at some point today due to the amount of users logging in. I wish that didn't happen, but Sony's servers seem to buckle nearly every holiday.

A reset worked for me. The Internet was totally down for me when I woke up this morning.

Lizard squad has been hitting both Xbox and psn. Finest squad and a few others have been trying to prevent them from succeeding. It started last night.

Didn't work for me, but not a big deal. Between hackers and all the folks trying to get on I can imagine the servers are taking a beating today.

For games purchased digitally, would they still work right now since you're unable to sign in? I remember this used to happen on the 360 for arcade games purchased that were unplayable when xbox live would be down.

It would depend on the game (whether it requires online connectivity), not whether it was purchased digitally. I'm having no problem with the digital edition of Far Cry 4 (SP campaign), but playing the online MP or co-op is another story.

I spoke too soon. Last night Far Cry 4 was fine when the PSN was down, but now I can't get into the SP campaign of Far Cry 4 or LittleBigPlanet 3 (it hangs on the loading screen of the story mode level I select). The PSN game Contrast, however, works fine. Like I said before, it mostly depends on the game.

To play your SP mode of many games, whether digital or not, unplug your Ethernet or reset your ps4 wifi setting without reconnecting. It's magic.

this attack, as childish as it is, and what a bunch of jerks to do it on xmas day....if anything does show the PS4/Xbones major flaw. While they claim to not need internet connections, there is no denying the issues that arise when there is internet connection problems. And it pisses me off.

That's exactly why I always hesitate to purchase digitally.

My son was bummed he couldn't play online with his friends, but I can imagine quite a few very unhappy kids/adults who got systems for the holidays and can't set them up or play online. It is really a d*ck move and I really don't see the purpose of it.

In my brother's case, try having to explain why Santa can't use his "magic" to make the games work.

I wanted to get MGS Ground Zeroes from the store.
Most of the games I play are online. This sucks.

Meanwhile, I'm on my third play through of the Evil Within getting all the trophies, collectibles, keys,...

Thanks for the tip. I was able to get back into Far Cry 4 a couple hours later without trying that. But if I have any problems today ... or tomorrow ...

There are a lot of pros and cons to buying games on disc vs digitally, but being able to play the SP campaign during a major network outage isn't one of them. I played the entire campaign of the PSN digital game Contrast yesterday without a single hic up and my problems with FC4 proved only temporary.

My son got Skylanders Trap Force for PS4 this X-mas. Thankfully I popped the disc in after he went to bed on the 24th, I didn't want him to have to wait while the game installed and the inevitable patch downloaded. But in this case he's all set up and can play just fine despite the outage. It also means I can't play (or would rather not due to the compromises it entails) so he doesn't have to compete with me for time on the PS4 LOL.

Yea this outage is annoying. My kids are on Xbox and haven't had any significant connection problems but as for my PS4 no such luck. Disgusting that a group of idiots who need attention manage to screw up the holidays for so many people.

I was really hoping PSN would be up by now. Sony's PSN is always the mental midget to MS's Xbox Live.
