PSN down for several hours, PlayStation Store back up soon – official

By Jamie Pert - Jun 1, 2011

A recent post on the PlayStation Blog has confirmed that sometime soon (definitely today) Sony will begin maintenance on the PlayStation Network, this will result in the PSN being down, however it is essential for full PSN restoration including the PlayStation Store coming back online. This confirms that what we was telling you about earlier was pretty much spot on.

The maintenance will result in the PlayStation Network going down and this will means the PSN will be inaccessible for several hours, however if you are already logged in you should remain online. This is an essential step which will allow Sony to fully restore all PSN services and the PlayStation Store.

If you do not want to be affected by the downtime you may want to sign in to the PSN on your PS3 asap, if not it could be quite a while until you will be able to get online. You can find out a little more about the scheduled maintenance on the PlayStation Blog, no exact timeframe has been given, however the maintenance will last “several hours” and full PlayStation Network services will resume in most regions this week. The news could also potentially mean that the PlayStation Store could be accessible at some point tonight.

Hopefully this will be the last time we have to mention PSN downtime this year, it has been a bumpy ride since April 19th, however it finally looks like the end is near.

Is the PSN down for you yet?

  • Nope not all day

  • Finally got a PS3…and the PSN is down…fml.

  • Just signed in to stay connected and went through just fine.  Knock on wood that the store is put back up.  It’s summer break and I’ve been waiting the entire semester to get some heavy duty gaming in. I heard that the store was already up in Europe but not too sure if that’s true or not.
