PS4 PSN features temporarily disabled to cope with ‘unprecedented influx’ of players

A pair of PlayStation Network features are to be temporarily disabled across Europe to handle the “record number of people” expected to log into the service on PlayStation 4 tomorrow.

PS4’s ‘What’s New’ and ‘Content Information Screen’ services will both be taken offline “for a few days”, Sony says, to ease pressure on the network and “make sure that your online experience is positive”.

“Following the successful launch of PS4 in North America on the 15th November, we have seen an unprecedented influx of players onto PSN,” SCEE blog manager Fred Dutton said onPS Blog. “When we launch in Europe on Friday, once again, we are expecting record sales and record numbers of people logging onto PSN at similar times, alongside the North American players already on PSN.
