The PlayStation Network will be going offline later today for scheduled maintenance, between 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM PST (that’s 5:00PM – 7:00PM BST). Note that this is around the same time as Sony’s Press Conference at GamesCom. Could Sony be prepping the PlayStation Network for something major? Could it be that Sony is prepping the European Video Store we reported last week? During the downtime, you will not be able to access the PSN or the PlayStation Store.
During this time you may:
- Not be able to access the PlayStation®Store
- Not be able to play online games
- See a maintenance page when attempting to access the PlayStation Network
You can check the status of the PlayStation Network on the side-bar on the right (scroll down to see the PSN Status widget).
