The European PlayStation Network will undergo another round of scheduled maintenance next Thursday, meaning that all online services related to PSN will be unavailable for a 15-hour period.
From 4pm GMT on March 1st until 7am GMT on March 2nd the following PSN services will be unavailable:
- PlayStation Store (PC and Console)
- Customer Account Management
- Account Registration
- PlayStation Home
A forum post announcing the maintenance says:
“Users who are already signed into their account on PlayStation Network before the start of the maintenance will not be able to stay signed in to their online session and will be signed out at the start of the downtime period.”
“Users who attempt to log into their account after the maintenance begin will be presented with the site maintenance notification page.”
I wonder what Sony’s engineers will be working on during the 15 hours of downtime? Will there be new firmware updates to download for PS3 and PS Vita when the service resumes? All shall be revealed next week!
