News PS5 launches new ‘Be Back Soon’ message when PSN is down or struggling

Here’s something we’ve never noticed before: On PlayStation 5, if you try to sign in to PlayStation Network and the network is experiencing technical difficulties, you’ll get a little pop-up message that says “The services are currently busy. We will be back soon.” How attentive!

No, but seriously, it’s nice that something like this finally exists. Until now, if you were having trouble logging in, you couldn’t tell if the problem was with the PSN or your own internet connection. The only way to be sure was to go online and check social media, or Sony’s own PSN service’s status page. At least with this little message, you’ll know something’s up with the PSN itself.

Of course, we only came across this notification because right now, at the time of writing, the PSN is really down. You can read more about that via the link.
