Why is Digital Ocean showing in my router, connecting to a PS4?

I was looking in my router logs, trying to figure out why certain services are effected while others are not. I have no idea what DigitalOcean is, let alone why it is now starting to connect to a PS4 on my network. One thing I have noticed is that I have a lot of logs showing:

52430, Monday, March 13, 2017 17:49:08 [LAN access from remote] from to, Monday, March 13, 2017 17:24:15

The IP address it is connected to is my PS4. These appear to all come from:

Web Host Digital Ocean, Inc. Domain Name IP Address IP Location Frankfurt am Main (Westend-Süd), Hesse (DE)

My question is, why? The PS4 was not even on when this occurred.

Check out This customer has many VPS. It could be someone has created a VPN service on Digital Ocean.

DigitalOcean is a virtual server hosting company.

So if someone has setup a virtual server and using it as a VPN-server, then their IP-address is will show up as DigitalOcean. But it could also be that someone has setup a server that scans the internet for active services.

There can be many reasons why you’re seeing a DigitalOcean IP-address, but it’s not coming directly from the company.

Does that makes sense? If not, just reply with your questions.
