PlayStation Network seems to be down.
Just earlier today, at 09.00 PT / 12 ET / 17 BST, users noticed that PlayStation Network was inactive. GamesRadar + has confirmed this, and the PS5 error code given for those trying to connect is CE-109506-1.

It would be interesting to know why both of these servers have been taken offline on apparently at the same time, but we do not think Sony or Valve would be too eager to reveal why.
