Sony PSN Down Today: US & UK Times Longer than usual
If you’re trying to use the PlayStation Network service today you may not be able to get on and wonder why it’s down. It seems that Sony has scheduled today for maintenance work on the PSN system and that the service will be down for quite a few hours.
In the US the Sony PlayStation blog details downtime between 8am until 10pm PST on November 17. During this time users will be unable to access the PlayStation Store for PS3 and PSP, as well as PlayStation Network account management and PlayStation Network account registrations. According to Sony, any in-game Trophies can still be collected whilst the maintenance is ongoing and once the PSN is back up they will be credited to your profile.
Sony also adds that users will be unable to sign into the PlayStation network via us.playstation.com although some users may be able to play online during the maintenance. You can tune into the PlayStation Twitter feed here for further updates as things progress. Or check out the Sony PlayStation Facebook page here.
The eu.PlayStation.com blog gives equivalent information with UK PSN downtimes from 4pm on November 17 to 6am November 18 and also says you will be unable to sign into the PlayStation network via eu.playstation.com. However the advice is slightly different when it says that if you signed in to PSN before 4pm today you may still be able to play online. If you were one of the fortunate ones to do so, let us know if you still managed to play.
There’s no word yet on what exact ‘maintenance’ is being carried out but the extra-long downtime today is rather unusual. What do you think about the latest PSN down time? Also did you manage to be able to play online by signing in before the maintenance work began? Let us know with your comments.
