PSA: PSN Maintenance On Thursday

Better time to be gone!

At the risk of being called a Microsoft shill again, here’s some news about the PlayStation Network having another outage for maintenance.

They’ve just tweeted that the service will be down between the hours of 02:00 and 08:00 UK time on Thursday (that’s after midnight tonight).

Apparently PlayStation Network services will be intermittent for some users. Some would joke that the PSN is constantly intermittent but not me. No, I’m not nearly amusing enough to try to make a well-meaning, lighthearted joke out of a subject that so many people get so worked up about.

So, there you go. Nice that this bout of maintenance is in the middle of the night, so less inconvenient than their usual scheduled outages. It will be even nicer if these mysterious maintenance periods do something noticeable to the service. I mean, all the extra security and server tweaking is probably invaluable but I’d like it if they even just changed the font every now and then. Just to mix things up. Keep us on our toes.

Not that it will matter to me, my entire network is having a sulk for the past two weeks. Oooh, I wonder if Sony will nip round and do some maintenance for me?!

    Glad its early hours. Won’t affect any BF3 play time for me.
    Now CB, all you need to do now is report this maintenance 3 or 4 more times ;) to get the desired result ;)

    At least it’s a little later (or earlier, whichever way you want to look at it) in the day this time.

      As the tweet was from ‘@PlayStationEU’ it may just be Europe.

      I think we may all be finally over that idea, then again wait for the next Firmware update.

      Yeah, this is a maintenance, not a firmware update. Sony just need to release a memory expansion pak like the N64 had and XGC is a reality.
