I’m not too sure what to write here, normally I waffle on about how Sony never take it to account that Europe is their strongest market and yet we always get whacked with maintenance in the evening, when we’re all online.
The next scheduled PSN maintenance will start at 2.30 next Tuesday and last for nine and half hours.
But wait, that’s not 2.30 pm, it’s 2.30 am! At last, they have listened and scheduled the maintenance for when their most loyal customers are fast asleep. As usual, if you have recently signed into your account on it (within past 24 hours for PS4) then you should be able to play online whilst the work occurs. However, the store, account management and the usual gubbins will be offline.
