Depending on what kind of content you’re trying to get a refund for, the PlayStation Store might give your credit back in full. Or in PSN wallet credit — or worse, not at all.

The PSN's problems prohibit gamers from accessing its games, applications, and online services, mainly relying on Sony's server systems. PSN's server status can be monitored via Sony's network service status on its website.

Sony's server status now reports that "All services are up and running" via its website, including Account Management, Gaming and social, and the PlayStation Store. These services were also affected by the recent server outage that somehow put the PlayStation Network on a massive blackout.

Additionally, other services that rely on the PlayStation Network, including PlayStation Now, PlayStation Video, and PlayStation Music, are not known to have their systems affected by the recent outage. The website's status tracker only notes the game and social's server problems.

#PSNDown Trends on Twitter: Users Still Report Problems Despite 'OK' Status

Users who found no hope of reporting the problems via the PlayStation 4 or PS5's platform took the complaints and discussion over short word social media, Twitter. Recently, #PSNDown trended on social media, with many gamers flooding PlayStation, Sony, and support accounts.


PlayStation owners say that despite Sony's status website displays that servers are now back-up, users can still not use the PSN's systems and services entirely. Additionally, the PSN Down prohibits gamers from interacting with friends and connecting via a game's chat or online capabilities.


The PSN's server problem still have no known cause and solution from Sony, as the Japanese conglomerate maintains radio silence over its end. There is no explanation regarding the server down, only a statement that says they will immediately fix users' problems.
