Looks like there’s going to be about seven hours of PSN maintenance today, starting at midnight on the 3rd, Japan time, according to Sony.
We get that to be from 4pm today onwards, UK time, and thus affects our WipEout 2048 meet and will mean today’s Store Update won’t be immediately browsable – please see update below.
The Japanese PSN state tends to be updated more often and with more notice than anywhere else, so it might be worth keeping an eye on this page in future.
This particular downtime was listed there two days ago.
The maintenance will definitely affect the PS Store, and possibly Account Management and Account Registration. We’ll update with confirmation if any is forthcoming.
Sony Europe seem to think it’s next week.
Update: Sony have confirmed today’s maintenance but highlighted that it’s little more than a Store thing, so everything else will be unaffected. The information above will carry over to next week’s update though.
