May 27, 2011 Written by Zak Islam

Sony recently carried out maintenance on the PlayStation Network, but to gamers dismay it wasn’t due to the PlayStation Store’s return. However, more maintenance for the PSN is incoming and this time hints at the Store’s return.

Sony has issued the following statement on the scheduled maintenance via its EU forums:

PSN Network Maintenance has been scheduled to take places from Tuesday 31st May at 19.00 GMT until Wednesday 1st June 01.00 GMT.

If you attempt to log in during this period you will receive the site maintenance notification page.

If you are already signed in during this period you should be able to stay connected and you will not lose your gaming session (however the above services will still be unavailable).

Sony said that during the maintenance the following services will be unavailable:

  • PC Registration
  • Console Storefront
  • PS3 Account Management
  • PS3 Network Account Registration
  • PSP Network Account Registration
  • Qriocity Account Management

Sony’s decision to date the latest PlayStation Network maintenance for May 31st hints at the PlayStation Store’s return due to its similarity of Sony’s recent statement: when the company updated PS3 owners on the PSN’s last maintenance, they also confirmed that the Store is readying for a return within this month.
