The PlayStation Network is About to go Down for a Day

Illustration for article titled The PlayStation Network is About to go Down for a Day

The PlayStation Network undergoes maintenance all the time. Usually, though, it only lasts for 2-4 hours. On Thursday, the network is undergoing some serious maintenance, because it'll be down for most of the American day.


Starting at 8am Pacific and running until an estimated 10pm Pacific, almost everything PlayStation-related that uses the internet will be going offline. That means the PlayStation Store, online multiplayer, signing into accounts, editing accounts and PlayStation Home. If you're signed in once the maintenance starts, you'll be booted out.

You won't even be able to visit the PlayStation Blog for updates, because it'll be down as well. In fact about the only thing running will be Sony's PlayStation Twitter account, so maybe you can play with your friends on that...

Bubbleman! Will buy a PS Vita for NHL 13 or Gundam Extreme VS, so make it reality!

EXTREMELY Late PSN updates ( like, a day late every fucking week..GRACE CHEN!!! )

SLOW PSN gaming speeds ( Playing 2 copies of UFC 3 over the weekend, one on 360 and one on PS3. The 360 version finds an opponent and loads right away, the PS3 version takes 2-3 just to see a freaking load screen! Its not just this game either. PSN must throttle speeds, because everything is so slow compared to xbox)

Constant maintenance and updates...that don't bring new features 99% of the time.

I'm getting tired of this shit, Sony. Its worse that I bought the PS3 mainly as a media hub, and now it doesn't even do that NEARLY as well as the 360 does. Tell me, do you plan on fixing Youtube, Crackle, and supporting MKV like the 360 will with its next update?

Last Guardian is going to be tainted by shitty Sony Santa Monica, what the hell reason do I have for contnuing to support this company? Everything that matters is 3rd party these days anyways..

Damnit Japan, support Steam!
