Sony Disables PS4 Vouchers To Ease Pressure On Servers
In an effort to enhance the smoothness of the PlayStation 4 launch in Europe, Sony opted to disable a few PSN features.
Unfortunately, that hasn't totally eased the strain being exerted upon the PlayStation servers, as a whole lot of new owners are attempting to log in. Initially, Sony delivered the following Twitter message:
"We are aware some users are experiencing issues logging into PSN on PS4 due to the heavy traffic we are receiving, we're investigating."
Since then, Sony issued another update saying that they've temporarily suspended the Redeem Voucher functionality, which may help. However, other features, such as multiplayer gaming, the free PlayStation Plus trial, the Store (excluding any use of vouchers, of course), Trophies, and Friends lists are all intact. It's obvious that the initial impact of lots of new users is putting a serious hurt on the servers, so you'll have to bear with Sony for a little while. Don't worry, the new users have to go outside sometime.
Gamers were plenty enthusiastic about this launch and in some cases, they were way too excited.
