PlayStation Network was supposed to go down for maintenance this past Thursday but for some reason Sony announced that they would delay until some point in the future and that time is tomorrow. PlayStation Network will go down for significant maintenance tomorrow, Sunday March 4th.
This significant PSN maintenance period is expected to start at just after noon Pacific and will last for several hours, until approximately 2am Pacific on Monday, March 5. Unlike typical maintenance events, gamers who are already signed-in to PSN will be signed-out, and players will be unable to sign in for the duration of the maintenance window. During this time, users won’t be able to access the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, Account Management or play online. PSN enabled websites will not be able to service users, including this one.
To take PSN down this early on a weekend is a bold move and one that I can’t say I agree with. Personally, I don’t think you should ever take a gaming network down on the weekend when everyone is home. If you are going to do something like this, you tend to want to do it late at night and run through early morning so there is as little disruption as possible. If you are in the Eastern timezone like me then you will have to find something else to do after 3pm tomorrow, no Call Of Duty for you. For this much downtime they better be doing something that’s noticeable. So get your gaming in tonight because tomorrow is going to be pretty dry on that front, at least if your a PS3 gamer.
