PSN, Steam Are Down Along With Big Chunks Of The Internet
Tons of websites and games–including Fortnite, the PlayStation Network, Steam, and Warframe–are experiencing a Domain Name System (DNS) failure, resulting in pages that won’t load and titles that can’t be played.
It’s not just Fortnite, the PSN, Steam, and Warframe. Other parts of the internet, like Home Depot and Newegg, have also been affected. Even wholesaler Costco has been hit, as well as Call of Duty, HBO Max, and certain parts of both Amazon Web Services and Google, according to Down Detector.
The DNS failure is a result of a widespread outage affecting the Content Delivery Network (CDN) Akamai, which alone handles approximately 15-30% of the world’s web traffic. Most of the issues seem to be server-side, with Down Detector reporting 58% of the problems occurring there.
