Sony has issued an update to the current problem with the PlayStation Network, which has prevented users from using the service for the last few hours.
The latest tweet from Sony's PlayStation Europe account states: "Current indications are that we'll be restoring PlayStation Network services in approx. two hours. We appreciate your patience."
Early indications are that this is a blip on the radar, as opposed to the catastrophe that was witnessed earlier in the year on a lot of PlayStation services.
