If you've been trying without luck to sign in to PlayStation Network this evening, you're not alone. Large portions of Sony's online system seem to be currently offline.
While at the GameSpot offices we're currently able to access the PlayStation Store from a web browser, the system's storefront is inaccessible by console. And multiplayer games such as Destiny are currently unplayable.
The official PlayStation Twitter account says, "We are aware that you may be experiencing issues with PSN. Thanks for your patience as we investigate."
The PlayStation Service Status page lists affected areas as including account management, gaming and social, and the PlayStation Store.
We'll update this story with further details as they're made available.
