The PlayStation Network will be going down later today, 10/30. This is due to scheduled PSN maintenance that was revealed within the last few hours, which is aimed at helping the online servers deliver the best experience possible.
Sony revealed the PSN maintenance will start at 9pm on Thursday, October 30 2014. This is for Pacific time, so in the UK that would be more like 4am on Friday, October 31st. It will last only 2 hours, so you’ll see PSN back up and running from 11PM PST and 6am UK.
Sony Entertainment Network is undergoing maintenance – this is the message you will likely see later today in the US, or early morning tomorrow in the UK. When you try to access the PS Store, or sign-in to PSN you might see an “undergoing maintenance” error message.
If this schedule is changed, then we’ll update Product Reviews readers. You can see the official statement above, which is found on the PSN status page and explains when the maintenance will take place today.
How do you feel about PSN going down today, especially considering the 7 hours maintenance not long ago? Other error codes you might see on PS3 and PS4 include E8200013A, NW-31201-7, NP-35000-8, and many others depending on what parts of your console you are trying to access.
