Sony has a scheduled maintenance coming up soon for PSN on August 25th, but the network suddenly has gone down for plenty of people. Not only that but many Sony sites do not work as well, so this could only mean one thing; someone’s DDOSing Sony’s network.
A hacker group called Lizard Squad has also claimed responsibility, but we can’t say for sure unless Sony gives a reason for PSN being down.
Lot of networks are being DDOSed including Blizzard’s Battle.net. If your PS4 is not registered as a primary device you won’t be able to play single player games as the console cannot verify licenses. Primary users should have no problem with the PSN being down.
We will update as soon as we get more information on this, but as of now, almost all Sony networks are down.
