If you're trying to play games online on your PlayStation 3 or 4, you're not going to be able to. PSN is down thanks to Lizard Squad, the notorious hacker/DDoS group who lives to ruin the lives of gamers. The weekend or big holiday where everyone is off or a big game release rolls around, and they take down PSN.
According to PlayStation, they're experiencing problems. I noticed that I couldn't connect to PSN when I was trying to get on about 15 minutes ago at 7:45pm ET. Sony confirmed that the PSN Store, PSN, PlayStation Now, PlayStation Video, PlayStation Vue, PlayStation everything you could think of is not working.
Lizard Squad, who last reared their ugly head around the holidays, went to Twitter to take credit in a series of tweets and insults at gamers, going as far as saying "I really missed all the butthurt gamers, how you guys been? I'm sure you missed us just as much."
Sometimes I wish I had Xbox ONE, they don't seem to get hacked as much as Sony

Lizard squad are hackers haha, please don't glorify these kids, They send packets of information thru a program they use, this is far from hacking and anyone can do it, but why would you.
I do feel sorry for Xbox live users, they pay for a premium network that they can't use.
