Sony Entertainment Network Busy

Ghosts PlayStation 4

So I have been trying for the last hour to play online and it keeps saying that the Sony Entertainment Network is currently busy.  (CE-33743-0)  Is there anything I can do besides keep trying?  Also does anyone know why this seems to be happening more often?  I'm getting sick of spending money and half the time I can't even enjoy the things I've purchased.  I wish someone would stand behind their product and take responsibility for what they are putting out there.

Its Sony maintenance I just logged out and back into my PSN account a few times and it worked eventually. It should all be over soon though.

Yeah I agree, it's getting really annoying. Especially if you don't got all the time in the world to play, then you want it to work when you got time over to play.

If you bothered to follow PlayStation on, FB, Twitter or even there official Forums you would have known/received information regarding there maintenance schedule. The maintenance has been advertised (for want of a better word) for over a week!!!

This maintenance is in preparation for Firmware update 1.70

I don't go on Facebook or Twitter very often maybe once a month.  Maybe they should have something that tells you the maintenance schedule on the PlayStation home screen not on social media.
