The outage is the most recent in a series of attacks on tech giant Sony.

The Japanese firm’s Hollywood film studios’ corporate network was hacked into last month, followed by an online leak of unreleased movies, along with confidential information such as actors’ salaries.

Sony Entertainment Network has responded by tweeting that they are aware of the issues that users are having in connecting to the PlayStation network.
