PLAYSTATION Network is showing DNS error in PS4, Users can’t able to log in in PSN. why is psn under maintenance?
Trying to log on to PSN to play some Battlefield 1 or Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta? Find that you can’t but you see your friends online? Yeah, you’re not alone. It seems PSN is having issues once again — and on a Friday, even!
Millions of PS4 players hoping to hop into the newly released Battlefield 1 seem to be out of luck this morning, as is anyone hoping for some futuristic combat in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta. Two of the biggest shooters out there may have been too much for PSN, and it appears that people all across social media are reporting problems logging onto Sony’s online service. The official Playstation Network status page currently lists Playstation Store as having issues, but I’ve been unable to access any online services at all, and many across the Internet appear to be experiencing the same problem.
Sony has updated the PSN Status Page to say that every aspect of the PSN – Account Management, Gaming and Social, PlayStation Now, PlayStation Video, PlayStation Vue, PlayStation Store, and PlayStation Music – is down across all platforms.
The latest from the PlayStation support team: “You may have some difficulty launching games, applications or online features. Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience.”

The Ask PlayStation Twitter has yet to comment on this whole PSN down issue for now, and checking the official status page shows a maintenance schedule reminder that we all know is happening on October 26 (not today). Logging in to PSN and checking my internet connection via the PS4’s test feature brings up error code “CE-33987-0,” and an “Authentication Failed” message.
Why playstation network down today?
There are five main reasons why this may happen:
1) The link you clicked on was not generated for you, but was intended only for someone else’s use to perform an action on their account. If the other person pasted such a link into a message body or you were re-directed to such a link from another link you clicked on, the authentication will fail and you will arrive here instead.
2) The link was valid for you, but your authentication ticket has expired. If this is the case, hit the back button in your browser and refresh the page containing the link. You will then get a fresh ticket and when you click on the link again it will work.
3) Your browser session may have expired. If so, hit the back button in your browser, then refresh the page containing the link you clicked on. You will get a fresh ticket and if you click on the link again it will work.
4) Your browser may be set to not accept session cookies (or the cookie may have been deleted, or you may have been prompted and refused the cookie), in this case you should modify your browser settings to accept session cookies, and/or accept the session cookie if you are prompted, in order to use this site.

PSN Maintanence Schedules:
Routine maintenance and improvements for PlayStation™Network will be performed for approximately 1 hour between 10/26/2016, 11:00 AM and 10/26/2016, 12:00 PM . Anyone who already has an account can still sign in to their PlayStation™Network profile, play games and use most applications while this maintenance is carried out. You will not be able to access Account Management, PlayStation Video, and PlayStation Store during this maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience. We recommend activating your PS4™ as your primary console before maintenance begins so you can continue to play most games and use 3rd party services during maintenance. To activate your console, sign in to your PlayStation™Network profile and select [Settings] > [PlayStation™Network/Account Management] > [Activate as Your Primary PS4] > [Activate]. You only need to do this once. We strive to ensure that PlayStation™Network services are available at all times, but occasionally we must take PlayStation™Network offline to perform essential maintenance and implement feature enhancements. We are working hard to reduce the duration of each maintenance operation.
