Important PlayStation Network Maintenance Today

Starting soon, the PlayStation Network will be inaccessible for several hours for maintenance. The server maintenance performed at this time represents a crucial step in the full restoration for PSN, including the PlayStation Store.

During this maintenance period, users will be unable to sign in to PSN, though those that are already logged in should be able to remain online.

Resumption of full PlayStation Network service is still on track for this week in most regions.

Thank you once again for your patience as we work to return PSN to the highest level of service.

Did you enjoy this?

Well this can only be good news, another step towards total restoration. Not really happy about the long wait though.

‘Starting soon’ and for ‘several hours’ eh.
Well done on the incredibly vague and incredibly short notice message Sony. Still at work for another hour, and I will probably get home to no PSN, thank you very much, you seem to be learning fast about what exactly to say to your customers, and when. Or not… Atall…

Snowd25 1 June, 2011 @ 3:41 pm   9

“By the end of the week” in other words. by the weekend…. Sunday! If its back before you will all be happier, I can’t take any more moaning about what poor service about psn that sony have given, we are all in the same boat! Just be patient!


Nick, there’s no rush.

My cable modem died last night, so I’m back to my own personal version of “How we Used to Live: 1994” :-/

WiseBear53 1 June, 2011 @ 3:44 pm   11

It went down last night 4 about half an hour

stargateheaven 1 June, 2011 @ 3:45 pm   12

“starting soon”
“for several hours”

Why are you always so vague?

Boycey83 1 June, 2011 @ 3:46 pm   13

“Resumption of full PlayStation Network service is still on track for this week in most regions.”

Congrats on still being on track for a target date only announced one day ago! *Round of applause*

almighty-slayer 1 June, 2011 @ 3:54 pm   28

Good. I has money to spend in the store.

grimbarian 1 June, 2011 @ 3:56 pm   29

Let’s hope that the ‘crucial step’ is making sure that the PSN doesn’t crash when 77 million people all start trying to download their reward vouchers at the same time.

shaolinsword 1 June, 2011 @ 3:56 pm   30

Thanks for the update

Exportforce 1 June, 2011 @ 3:57 pm   31

Can’t wait. Already signed in, since it will be down in about 30 minutes from this post on.
Hope tomorrow we will have our store back.

Still also hoping, that this [DELETED] is just making bad jokes.

DARREN200COOK 1 June, 2011 @ 3:57 pm   32

I has Playstation + waiting for me. With Sackboy and inFAMOUS

TroubleMaker411 1 June, 2011 @ 3:58 pm   33


Jeez! The guys tell you it’s going down, they tell you it’s a step towards the full restoration. we already know it’s up by the end of the week, that’s 2/3 days away.

Just let them get on with it and quit whining!

We’re all annoyed at how long it’s taken, we all want our store back. But what we aint all doing, is bashing on Sony on every single blog post.

MaDDogZ67 1 June, 2011 @ 3:59 pm   34

I’m confused now! is it off at 4-30pm or 5-30pm.

Tridentmorph 1 June, 2011 @ 4:00 pm   35

Thanks for another vague update, fingers crossed nothing else goes wrong and you can actually hit the end of week target. good luck.

DARREN200COOK 1 June, 2011 @ 4:00 pm   36


Exportforce 1 June, 2011 @ 4:01 pm   37

Damn… used the bad F word for those damn hackers and my post got into moderation ^^

@35 it’s off in about 30 minutes, so hurry to log on.

Focalpoint 1 June, 2011 @ 4:01 pm   38

now its changed from ‘up by the end of the week’


‘up by the end of the week in MOST regions’

lets hope the UK is one of those regions otherwise i can see a lot of complaining.

LimeyLemons 1 June, 2011 @ 4:02 pm   39

Glad to hear some good news! I really hope for the PS Store by the end of the week. 😀

I’ll just continue playing through my Mass Effect 2 Insanity run. The outage has made me pick up old, awesome single player games! 🙂

Exportforce 1 June, 2011 @ 4:03 pm   40

@39 don’t cry.
Most regions was until today always: USA, Gayada and Europe 🙂

PunjabKin 1 June, 2011 @ 4:06 pm   41

Thanks for the update

LOLiFAIL 1 June, 2011 @ 4:17 pm   42

@33 Why should we stop complaining? So they can treat us like crap more often? They need to sort their PR team out. Tell the truth from the beginning and more importantly admit this is entirely their fault.

We the consumer have put them on top. If they with to remain on top they need to fix their support. They should crumble after this ball up but it’s because of ignorant fans like you they don’t feel the need to fix their ways.

ShoaibO 1 June, 2011 @ 4:17 pm   43

After such a long maintenance, will we have the store back?

LOLiFAIL 1 June, 2011 @ 4:17 pm   44


Hawkboi 1 June, 2011 @ 4:18 pm   45

Let there be store!

AndyBeans 1 June, 2011 @ 4:24 pm   46

Well done to the tech guys, it’s just a pity the “Head of Communications” lets the side down by releasing such a meaningless, vague and uninformative post.

Opt1mus76 1 June, 2011 @ 4:24 pm   47

I read on one site PSN down from 1630 till 0700! That’s a lot of time for maint so here’s hoping store back very soon after network back up.

Szamal 1 June, 2011 @ 4:24 pm   48

please re-store:)

bj2411 1 June, 2011 @ 4:24 pm   49

come on sony you must know when PSN is planned to return
just tell us and we all be happy

DBcoopmore 1 June, 2011 @ 4:25 pm   50

I’m highly doubting this will mean the store will be back after the maintenance. It does say this is a ‘STEP’ in getting the store and such fully up and running, but that could just be prep. Since it says back up in ‘MOST’ regions by the end of the week I doubt that they’ll start the store back up in any regions this early in the week. Let’s not get our hopes up and all expect the store on the coming tuesday.
