Despite rumors last week, the PlayStation Store will not be returning this week. In fact, the PSN is unavailable again due to scheduled maintenance. The maintenance window will run until 5pm Pacific Time, as Sony aim to restore all PSN services by the end of the month.
A post on the PlayStation.Blog by Sony’s social media manager, Jeff Rubinstein, reads:
“For those asking about the PlayStation Store, we’re still targeting restoration of all services by the end of this month. Contrary to reports, the Store will not be publishing today.”
