[Updated] PSN Goes Down for Maintenance on March 1st

Update #1: Sony announced, via the official PlayStation Twitter account, that tomorrow’s maintenance has been pushed back. The statement reads, “update: Tomorrow’s scheduled PSN maintenance has been postponed. We’ll update everyone once it’s rescheduled. Until then, game on.”

Original Story: Sony revealed that the PlayStation Network will undergo a lengthy maintenance period on March 1st.

While the maintenance is ongoing, you won’t have access to:

  • PlayStation Store
  • PlayStation Home
  • Account Management
  • Play online.

Sony explained, “unlike typical maintenance events, consumers who are already signed-in to PSN will be signed-out, and consumers will be unable to sign in for the duration of the maintenance window.” Also, the PlayStation Blog won’t be accessible, as “PSN enabled websites will not be able to service users.”
