It’s never a good sign when troubleshooting advice is “try again later,” but that’s exactly the statement Playstation support has issued via Twitter:
If you are having issues connecting to PSN, please try again later. Thanks for your patience as we look into it.

As some twitter users have pointed out, this perfectly coincides with launch of the Destiny Beta for Playstation preorders. Ask Playstation confirmed that there are intermittent connectivity issues due to high traffic. So no one is saying Destiny, but what else could it be?
Playstation’s tweet went up an hour after the launch of the beta, so if you’re popping on your PS3 or PS4 with high hopes, prepare to lower your expectations for connectivity.
