Many of us were expecting the PSN to be up sometime yesterday but it looks like things are taking a bit longer. As of this post, Sony has changed their maintenance window several times and it now looks like the Playstation Network will be down until tomorrow (January, 19th) until about 2:00am PDT (5:00am Eastern).
Here is what Sony posted earlier today:
“We are currently performing maintenance to upgrade the software for the PlayStation Network from January 17-19th. This maintenance is scheduled to end around 2:00am PDT (5:00am Eastern) Saturday January 19th.”
“During this maintenance period, you may receive a message that states “Sony Entertainment Network is undergoing maintenance” when attempting to access the PlayStation Network, PlayStation Store, or PlayStation Home.”
“If you have signed in to PSN within 5 days prior to the start of maintenance (meaning: any time since January 12), you maybe able to play games online and enjoy apps such as Netflix, HULU Plus and Music Unlimited during this maintenance period.”
“Note: During our current maintenance some authenticated users may have lost access. We apologize for this inconvenience and are working hard to restore access as soon as possible.”
