PSN Back up, times around the world

By Jamie Pert - Mar 5, 2012

PlayStation 3 gamers are currently enduring some frustrating PlayStation Network down time while Sony carries out scheduled maintenance, if all goes to plan in total the outage will last 14 hours – so what time will it be back up for you? That’s the question which we hope to answer in this brief post.

Sony has said that the PlayStation Network should be up and running at 2am PST, therefore we thought we would tell you the times which this equates to around the world, however all the times which we mention are completely reliant on whether Sony manage to stick to the plans which they’ve pledged. So let’s get started:

If you live in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver or anywhere else which comes under the PST (Pacific Standard Time) time zone the PSN should be back up and running at 2:00am, if you’re located somewhere which falls into the Eastern Standard Time zone (places such as New York, Miami and Detroit etc) it should be once again live at 5.00am.

So that’s you folks’ in North America sorted, but what about Europe? Well London residents and everyone else in the UK should be able to access the PSN at 10.00am, carrying on east French and Spanish residents should be online at around 11.00am. Other areas which many of our readers come from include Hong Kong and Sydney, the PSN should go live in these areas at 18.00 and 21.00 respectively.

If you check out this link you can see a complete list of locations around the world and when the PSN should go live – we guess time will tell whether these turn out to be accurate, they should be as long as Sony’s work goes as smoothly as planned.

When did the PlayStation Network come back online for you? (Please remember to state where in the world you signed in from)
