As much as I hate breaking it to you, a PSN Maintenance has been scheduled to take place tomorrow, Thursday 2nd of February, starting at 6:00 a.m. PST (2:00 p.m. GMT) until 11:00 pm. PST (7:00 a.m. GMT) on Friday February 3rd. During the 18 hours downtime the usual services (Store, Account management, registration) are inaccessible.
If you can’t log in to PSN to play Barbie adventures, or whatever game tickles your fluffy hearts, please don’t panic. PSN will be down for maintenance today from 8am until 9pm PST. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to access the usual services (PS Store, PS Home, Account management and Music unlimited).
The PlayStation Network will be down for maintenance tomorrow, Thursday Nov. 17th, from 8 AM until 10 PM Pacific time. You won’t be able to access the PlayStation network during the scheduled 10 hours maintenance, but if you sign in before down time then you might still have a chance to save your Thursday night online gaming session. Sony will be using this time to introduce the new game sharing restrictions, which will limit your purchased content from the PlayStation Store to two PS3 systems or two PSPs. Fore more information on the new Sharing restrictions, refer to Eddie’s post.
Heads up for our European PS3 owners. PSN will be down for maintainance tomorrow November 3rd between 4PM and 9PM. You won’t be able to sign into PSN unless you already signed in before it starts, in that case you should still be able to game online.
So be honest: Did you actually read the new Terms of Service agreement that was posted in advance of Firmware update 3.72 several days ago? I’ll admit it—I didn’t! I scroll right through those things like a chump. The faster I can get to the “Accept” button, the faster I can reconnect to PSN and regain access to online gaming, the PSN store, Netflix streaming, etc. Perhaps I was overhasty on this occasion, as Sony included a rather surprising clause in the latest TOS, acceptance of which waives my right ever to join a class action lawsuit against the corporation. More details—and information about how to reclaim the aforementioned right, should you wish to do so—after the jump.
