PSN Maintenance Today, But No PlayStation Store

Sony announced via its PlayStation Blog today that the network will go down for scheduled maintenance from 1:00 AM – 5:00 PM ET. Obviously, during that time users will not be able access the registration and account management system or the password reset process. But the real story is that the rumored restart of PlayStation Store will not happen today. Sony did say that it should be back online "this month." Considering that t"this month" ends next Tuesday it is likely that the PS Store will be back up by at least week’s end. Full message below:

"PlayStation Network is scheduled to undergo maintenance today, from about 8am until approximately 5pm Pacific time. During this time, registration and Account Management will be inaccessible, including the password reset process. While some users may experience difficulty signing in to PSN, the majority of consumers will be able to play online as well as sign in to external sites that require PSN authentication (like this one).

For those asking about the PlayStation Store, we’re still targeting restoration of all services by the end of this month. Contrary to reports, the Store will not be publishing today.

Stay tuned to the PlayStation Twitter feed for updates and a notice when maintenance has concluded.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. "

We will continue to follow this story as it develops. On a related note, a new PSP firmware has been released. Details on that can be found here. According to Sony, this new update will guide users through the process of changing their passwords.

    The bigger the target, the better. I mean, not even the LAPD can miss a target if it gets large enough, right? XD

    Meh, probably Anonymous. They’re just whining about the store not being back up because they’re anxious to take it back down again.

    Edit: Was supposed to be a reply to Hellfire’s comment. Silly GP glitches. ; ;
