Sony has announced that PSN will be down for scheduled network maintenance this Thursday the 15th from 12:00 Pm to 4:00 Pm Eastern Time, so approximately 4 hours. Sony is set to “deploy a series of back-end improvements to the network”. The maintenance could be due to the last string of hacking and DDoS attacks that have affected PSN since this past December. So hopefully this will strengthen the network a bit and make it less prone to outages in the future.
Here is Sony’s notice on the upcoming PSN maintenance:
“We wanted to take a moment to inform you of a network maintenance, currently scheduled for Thursday the 15th, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM Pacific Time.
If you’ve signed in to the network any time prior to October 8th, you will be able to play games online and access partner apps such as Netflix during this maintenance period. The PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home and Account Management will not be available during this time, and users may receive a maintenance notification when attempting to access these services.”
So players who have been on the PSN network this past year will have no problems accessing their games and Netflix during the downtime. The network should be up and running after four hours.
