PlayStation Network Scheduled Maintenance Today

I’m sure that this is just absolutely going to shock you, but there’s maintenance happening for PSN. Starting….now. It is scheduled, so try not to be to upset about it. You should expect it to go from “approximately 8:00 am PDT / 10:00 am EDT and concluding around 11:00pm PDT / 2:00am EDT.”

If you’re wondering what to expect, the PlayStation blog has got you covered:

During this maintenance period, you may receive a message that states “PlayStation Network is undergoing maintenance” when attempting to access the PlayStation Store or PlayStation Home. Online play will not be affected and you will be able to enjoy apps such as Netflix and Amazon Instant Video during this maintenance as well, provided that you have signed into the network within 5 days prior to the start of the maintenance period.

It’s not going to matter whether they have prompted people or not, there’s still going to be a flurry of angry emails coming into their HQ. You almost can’t help but feel sorry for the customer service people. If you want to know when they’re all finished up with maintenance, you should follow this Twitter account.

    Granted I don’t use the online functions often, and I’ll admit that it not being there when i want it is a bit of a pissoff. But lets look at the other side of the coin, the system had a near perfect uptime record before the hacking attack. There’s a good reason for that, THERE WASN’T ANYTHING ON THERE TO MAINTAIN. Before the hacking attack they just threw on new content and let it lie, as long as it was running they didn’t care. Fast forward to now, they’re forced to be more responsible because they got caught with their pants down. I’ll take downtimes if it means what little personal information I have on my account is safe.
