The PlayStation Network (PSN) is an essential part of the online experience for PlayStation gamers. Networking is needed to have fun on multiplayer games with friends. And if the servers are dead, players won't be able to connect..

If you've had trouble with PlayStation Network, follow these tips to identify and fix the issue.

PSN service status

The official PlayStation Network service status website should be your first reflex when having connection issues. This site is sourced directly from Sony and shows which parts of the PSN are likely to be having issues..

All issues are listed on this site and players can see which services are impacted by connection issues. This site is live feed, but players should recheck after a few minutes if they don't see an update.

Ask PlayStation

The Ask PlayStation Twitter account is a great source for gamers who want to learn more about servers and connection issues. The account will notify players if there are any issues with the servers and answer questions..

The detector

Down Detector is a separate site that looks for issues with the PlayStation Network. The page shows a timeline of player issues and when these are resolved. It also shows a map of outages, which can help players know if it's an issue in their region or globally.

Others can comment on the page to communicate with players and share tips for re-establishing the connection. But the Down Detector is not a site endorsed by PlayStation, so stay alert.
