The next round of scheduled PSN maintenance will kick off later today (September 25th), Sony has announced.
The maintenance window extends for around 12 hours from 2pm GMT (4pm South African time) this afternoon until 2am tomorrow morning.
The following services will be inaccessible during the maintenance window:
- PlayStation Store
- PlayStation Home
- Account Management
- Account Registration
- Transactions via the console
- sonyentertainmentnetwork.com website
Users may still be able to sign into their PSN account during the maintenance window provided they have previously done so in the five days prior to the maintenance.
Additionally, users can sign into PSN before the maintenance begins later today at 2pm GMT if they want to play online during the downtime.
This latest round of maintenance comes at an inopportune time since today is when the European PlayStation Store updates and 5 new games are added to the EU PS Plus Instant Game Collection.
