PSN Network Maintenance *Update*
PSN will be down for scheduled maintenance on April 14th from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. PST. You will not be able to access the store during the maintenance. Once the maintenance is complete, Firmware 2.30 will be released. There has not been any announcement regarding the status of online play during this time.
In small print it is stated that “It is not anticipated that this will affect other PLAYSTATION Network services”. However, until something more explicit is stated, stay tuned.
Thanks for reading.
The Official Blog has cleared up any confusion regarding the PSN maintenance. Only the store will be down during this 15 hour period. The new store will be available after you download the update 2.30. Also, the store will receive new content, including GT 5 Prologue, on Thursday. If any more news is released, we’ll post it here asap.
Noel Silva’s response regarding online play:
“The maintenance should only effect the PlayStation Store, and you should be fine playing all of your online games via the PLAYSTATION Network.
Hope this helped to answer your question!”
