PSN Maintenance Extended, Down Until 18:30 Tonight

It's over-run.

The PSN maintenance, which was scheduled to be completed by 8 AM this morning, has over-run, according to official PlayStation channels.

The downtime is now expected to remain until this evening, with SCEE stating 18:30 GMT is the time you should be back up and running.

The maintenance window was for unspecified (although scheduled) reasons, with Sony stating that online play wouldn’t be affected if users signed in before the servers were tinkered with.

There was no reason given for the extended downtime.

Update: It seems like the network will remain down until approximately 22:00 GMT tonight, according to a reply on the PlayStation forums.

    That really sucks, just turned the PS3 hoping to do a little Mass Effect 3 co-op, seeing as you know, I decided not to drive to work because of the snow.
    Now I’m going to have to play offline, I knew I should have bought Retro City Rampage yesterday.
    I have a 50+ game backlog to pick from, where to start….

        I can’t sign in that’s usually the case for me if there’s maintenance due I have to make sure I’m signed in and during maintenance can see people on my friends list happily signing in and out but 9 times out of 10 if I sign out during maintenance I can’t sign back in.

    As usual my online play wasn’t affected last night, and I only signed in after work, at about 630pm.
