PSN Gets More Downtime: Maintenance Soon

Just in case you’ve got a TSA Meet lined up, or you just want to know when the PSN service will be disrupted, here’s when the next two PSN Maintenance windows will be:  the 21st of January and the 26th of January.  It’s not clear whether this will be a global downtime or whether it’s just limited to Eastern regions, but hopefully somebody at SCEE will clear this one up for us nearer the time, as is normal.

21st January 2010 (08:00 – 12:00)


Affected services:

  • Create a new PlayStation®Network account
  • Modify existing PlayStation®Network account information

26th January 2010 (09.00 – 11.00)

Affected services:

  • PlayStation®Network online gaming service
  • PlayStation®Home
  • PlayStation®Store (PS3™, Media go, PSP®)
  • PlayStation®Network account registration and log-in

The times are Hong Kong time (which makes me wonder whether it is just limited to one territory) which are 8 hours ahead of GMT.  Still, some of our readers might be based in Hong Kong – hi!
