PSN Maintenance Scheduled for June 22, 2016
In order to do the usual “routine maintenance and improvements,” Sony has announced that the PlayStation Network will be undergoing maintenance on Wednesday, June 22 for roughly two hours.
With PlayStation 4 listed as the only affected platform, the maintenance will begin at 10:30pm PT on June 22/1:30am ET on June 23 and end at 12:30am PT/3:30am ET on June 23.
If you already have a PSN account, you’ll still be able to sign in to your profile, play games, and use most applications during the maintenance. However, Account Management, PlayStation Video, and the PlayStation Store won’t be available during the maintenance.
To activate your PS4 as your primary console “so you can continue to play most games and use 3rd party services during maintenance,” follow these steps: sign in to your PlayStation Network profile and select [Settings] > [PlayStation Network/Account Management] > [Activate as Your Primary PS4] > [Activate].
“We strive to ensure that PlayStation Network services are available at all times, but occasionally we must take PlayStation Network offline to perform essential maintenance and implement feature enhancements,” Sony adds. “We are working hard to reduce the duration of each maintenance.”
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the newest PlayStation Store sales in North America. There’s also a very good chance we’ll see a new PSN Flash Sale starting this Friday.
