PlayStation Network hit with server issues for several days

PlayStation 4
Sony’s PlayStation Network has been experiencing some issues this past week. Gamespot reports that account management, PlayStation Now, Social, and gaming services have been unstable for the past several days.

The official AskPlayStation Twitter account has acknowledged the problem and posted a few troubleshooting tips.

The server status has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride lately. Sony has been working to fix the problem and, briefly, appeared to have done so. But earlier this morning, it was reported that the PlayStation Network was once again having issues. As of the time of this reporting, the official server status page is reporting that everything is up and running, however.

Hopefully, Sony has managed to resolve the issues, as they came at a particularly inconvenient time for the company. This week saw the release of two games which will likely get a lot of online play: Monster Hunter: World and Dragon Ball Fighterz

As previously stated, the servers are currently up and running, so it may be that Sony has resolved the issue for good. It is also worth noting that there are many people on Twitter still discussing the server issues, so it is possible that the problems have not been resolved for everyone.

Once the server issues are resolved, gamers have good reason to get excited. Monster Hunter: World and Dragon Ball Fighterz both launched to strong reviews and should provide plenty of content to keep eager gamers busy. If the server issues continue, there’s always God of War, which comes out in April. Kratos is making his return in a single-player title, so PSN won’t be a major factor in that one.

Claim these free 3DS and Wii U games before the eShop closes

The eShops on the 3DS and Wii U will shut down on March 27, so players are splurging on great games that they want to pick up in the final days of each storefront's life span. If you can't drop any cash on games for these systems before then though, you're probably wondering what's available from them for free. For the most part, it's demos, as the 3DS and Wii U weren't really known for their free-to-play offerings. Even then, many of the available free-to-play games -- or "free-to-start" titles as Nintendo called them in that era -- won't have much use after the eShops cease game sales because most of their content is gated by microtransactions.

Some might be a little more time-consuming due to in-game timers and other microtransactions, but are still worth checking out regardless. If you're wondering what full games you can play on 3DS and Wii U for free ahead of the eShop storefronts' discontinuation on March 27, we recommend checking out the following six titles.
