The PlayStation Network will be undergoing maintenance this Thursday as a result of which the network will be down for nearly an entire day. The downtime is expected to kick in at 8:00 am Pacific and will last all the way till 10:00 pm Pacific. Not too bad for us Indian folk since that translates to roughly 9.00 pm, Thursday night for us.
It's going down
Here's Sony's statement from their official PlayStation Blog:
Unlike typical maintenance events, consumers who are already signed-in to PSN will be signed-out, and consumers will be unable to sign in for the duration of the maintenance window. During this time, users won’t be able to access the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, Account Management or play online.
PSN enabled websites will not be able to service users, including this one. Please stay tuned to the PlayStation Twitter feed for a notice when PSN is fully back online.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
