PSN Goes Offline Again Today, Store Tomorrow?

The PlayStation Network will be offline from 4pm today until midnight, suggesting that the Store will be back up and running tomorrow, as previously rumoured.

“PlayStation Network [will be] offline for scheduled maintenance,” says an update from Sony today, which also states that that gamers will be unable to access the following services:

  • PlayStation Network Account Management.
  • PlayStation Network Account Registration.

“In addition,” says the bulletin, “you will not be able to sign in to PlayStation Network from eu.playstation.com.”

“If you wish to play online during the maintenance, please ensure you sign in to PSN before 16:00 on Tuesday 24 May 2011.”

“During this maintenance, you can continue to collect in-game trophies and these will be updated on your profile once PlayStation Network is back up and running.”

Thanks, GAF.

      I hope publishers etc will think twice about having to input a PSN ‘shop code’ for online play after this, probably not!

    • Getting (PSN) down and Dirt3……..ba dum….tish

  2. Damn, I had hoped it would be today. Oh well, not long left now! *Fidgets impatiently*

    • same here, really want to download my plus update and a few bits of DLC!!!

  3. No problem, I’ll just be carrying on with my bioshock playthrough this evening then. Free games for all tomorrow then :-)

  4. Is this maintenance worldwide or just for the Eu?

    • Well, the 24th May date would be met for the US if it is worldwide, given the time difference, so I’d imagine it is worldwide.

      • Asia’s servers still aren’t online at all.

  6. Good news hopefully ;) feel a little sorry for those at work this week as they won’t be able to sign in!

  7. The rumour was for 24th not 25th. AAAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHH! I’m ok I’m ok I’m ok I’m ok I’m ok I’m ok I’m ok. Bollocks. I was looking forward to coming home from work and starting the downloads which I know will take years to complete thanks to everyone hitting the store at the same time. Christ.

    • I just assumed they went with the 24th for the USA and it would be 25th for EU.

      • Well, if that’s true, I’ll have my fun over there.

  8. Just checked my PS+ subscription and the extra 2 months has already been added.

    Looks like everything is getting set fot the store going live.

    • Yea me too, is mines some kind of joke, 21/12/2012 ??? LOL

  9. So my copy of L.A.Noire hasn’t arrived in the post and now I have to wit til tommorow for the store to return. Although I’m annoyed by this, I must admit it is good that I’m not distracted from revision…

    • The fact I didn’t have the game would distract me from revision more so than having the game because I would be just sat there knowingly doing nothing in annoyance at why the game hasn’t arrived ><
