PSN Is Down Today, “Maintenance” To Blame

PSN Maintenance

Yes, beginning at 8:00 AM PT (11:00 AM ET) today the PSN will be down for maintenance for four hours. You want to know why too?  Jeez, ok in lieu of the new 3.0 Firmware update, Sony will be preparing it’s network for the upgrade.  But there’s somewhat of good news that can come out of this.  If you’re logged in before-hand you will not be kicked off PSN and will continue to play online.  For those attempting to join online after 8 AM PT (11 AM ET), sorry… you won’t be able to play online games, download from store or anything else that requires you to login.

Also, you’ll be interested to know that this may be the last big PS Firmware update this year. Right Sony? Network operations director Eric Lempel said “You know, I wouldn’t say that or sure just yet because we are working on some things. But this is a big and significant update, so you would be correct to assume that [it’s the last major update for 2009].”

    When it comes to network down time, you should learn by now never to go by the exact time that is suggested the network will be down for. I would say keep yourself busy with another console (if you’ve got it) or just go outside and stare at some hot ladies for a bit.
