PSN STATUS = ONLINE
(Last Update: January 24, 2013)
***[UPDATE JANUARY 24, 2013]*** If you were logged in to PSN, you just got signed out. If you’re trying to log in, you’re getting error code 80710092. This just happened, so there’s no info from Sony about what’s going on and how long it may be done. It’s possible it has something to do with the SEN Webstore they just launched in North America today here. UPDATE: It’s back up now, hopefully it stays that way.
***[UPDATE JANUARY 18, 2013]*** Sony announced a few days ago that would begin maintenance on PSN on January 17th. The maintenance was scheduled to last the entire day. Since then, the maintenance has been taking longer than expected. As a result, some people are still having issues logging onto PSN and/or accessing certain features. Sony announced today that the maintenance should be completed by roughly 4am CST on Saturday, January 19th. So hang in there, only a few more hours. If it goes longer than that, we’ll update again.
***[UPDATE OCTOBER 1, 2012]*** It has come to our attention that PSN is apparently down for some people. There are quite a few of you experiencing 8071053D and NP-2239-6 error codes. I’ve just logged in to PSN myself, so this isn’t an issue that is affecting everyone. At the moment, Sony hasn’t said anything (and I’m following both Playstation US and Europe on Twitter. If they release a statement, we’ll update once again. I know this isn’t exactly helpful and what you were looking for, but it’s all we’ve got at the moment until Sony comments. If it’s down for you, let us know in the comments. Likewise, let us know if you’re able to get on PSN and where you’re at.
***[UPDATE MARCH 4, 2012]*** For those searching for why you can’t get on to PSN, do note that the below pertains to an issue back in September 2011. The issue today is simply scheduled maintenance, which you can read all about here. In the meantime, expect the Playstation Network to be back online around Monday at 4am CST.
If you’re trying to log in to the Playstation Network right now, you are most likely being hit with error code 8002A548 and thus unable to log in. You are not alone; this is an issue almost every PSN user is experiencing at the moment.
Don’t worry about it though, Sony is aware of the problem and actively working to address the situation, as mentioned on the official Playstation Twitter:
We're aware that some of you are having issues trying to log into PSN. We're working to resolve the issue, and we'll update you here.—

UPDATE: The official Playstation Europe Twitter has provided an update claiming Sony hopes to have the problem resolved in approximately two hours:
Current indications are that we'll be restoring PlayStation Network services in approx. two hours. We appreciate your patience.—
