PlayStation users are experiencing an error message stating “You need PS Plus to play online” although their subscription has not lapsed.

Many UK gamers are receiving the message which is particularly troublesome on the PlayStation 4 as it is required for online gaming. Chris Owen, PlayStation Europe Community Manager, went on Twitter making users aware that the problem is known and they are looking into a fix.

 

 

However, the official Killzone Twitter page not only reiterates this issue, but also states that it could be affecting users outside of the UK, specifically US gamers.

 

 

PlayStation is scheduled to undergo maintenance today, but not to (currently) fix this issue. Instead, the maintenance will allow three portable PlayStation devices on one account whereas only two were allowed previously.

 

UPDATE: The PlayStation Europe Twitter account has updated they are looking into “connectivity issues” that some users are receiving.

Isn't it because of the scheduled maintenance? They obviously never built a Message into the PS4 yet that simply tells you this. The PS Store is inaccessible too.

From what I understand, it is not because of scheduled maintenance as the error was occurring before the maintenance had started. Unless of course them prepping for it caused the issues people are having, but from what I've seen, these particular problems shouldn't have been happening.
