Reports that the PlayStation Network has gone down again have been confirmed by PlayStation Europe, as they have put out a message in an attempt to allay fears.
"We're aware that PSN is currently unavailable and working with the technicians to find out when it will be restored. Apologies," said the message on Twitter.
Gamers will be hoping this is just a temporary glitch, much like the one suffered by Xbox Live a short while ago, and not something more serious.
