Users are unable to play or purchase games online
Numerous users took to Twitter to share their troubles, with many people unable to play online or purchase video games.
At time of writing, neither the official PlayStation Twitter account nor the Steam support account has acknowledged the issue. It is unclear if the two problems are related.
The Independent has reached out to Sony for more information. The Independent was unable to reach Valve at this time, due to a larger internet outage that seems to be taking place concurrently.
