Have to point out tho, both games were played on Xbox. Big disadvantage

While this downtime has obviously affected anyone who wants to play a PlayStation 4 game online, PSNs recent wobble also impacted a big official FIFA tournament.

The tournament structure saw Xbox One players go up against each other, and PS4 players go up against each other, culminating in two console finalists (one from each console pool) facing off in a two-leg grand final (one leg on Xbox One and one leg on PS4). But PSNs problems on Sunday meant all the post-quarter finals matches were played on Xbox One - a development that did not go unnoticed by one sassy Xbox executive.

Why did FIFA 18 need to be online for this live tournament? EA stipulates all FUT Champions Cups are played using the FIFA Ultimate Team Friendly Seasons mode with accounts provided by EA. This meant competitors were provided with limited log-in details for the accounts for use at the tournament only.

While Sony said PSNs problems sorted themselves out late on Sunday, FIFAs online issues continued into Monday evening. Yesterday, EA Sports temporarily disabled match creation across the entire FUT mode, which meant I was unable to play Squad Battles - FUTs single-player portion.

Follow the games youre interested in and well send you an email the instant we publish new articles about them.

FUTmatch creation has been temporarily disabled. Apologies for the inconvenience.

The upshot of all this is that PSN - a premium service all PS4 owners must pay for in order to play online - is once again in the spotlight for its unreliability. Sony and EA will be hoping PSN doesnt have another wobble when the FUT Champions Cup returns in April.
