PS4 Update 8.00 dropped earlier this month and whilst this latest patch may have paved the way for new system-wide improvements.
However, in the last hour players have been once again hit by the same ws-44369-6 Error Code that first presented itself when the system software update originally released.
For the most part, this update causes an inability to access the console's friends list.
No doubt a major issue for any kid lucky enough to be on half term this week.
So far there's been no word from PlayStation Support or the @AskPS_UK Twitter account on the issues, despite a flurry of users messaging the support accounts for help in the last hour.
This could just be a blip, at least that's what we're hoping. We imagine that PlayStation support will respond to the issue soon enough.
