Playstation Network is Down

No one knows why, but the Playstation Network (PSN) is down tonight. The PSN is the online aspect to the PS3. Users can’t even play some of their own games. When trying to launch a game, users are presented with an “8001050F” error code. Joystiq reports it isn’t all games, but some. Sony acknowledges the issue, and is looking into it.

Other issues include dates on their console being reverted back to 12/31/1999 and owners getting error messages while their console is offline.

We will update you when more information is released from Sony. Tonight will be a  good night to watch that Blu-Ray DVD you have had laying around, folks.
