PlayStation Network Regular Scheduled Maintenance

Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on Sep 20, 2010 // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

PlayStation Network will undergo maintenance tomorrow, September 21st. Maintenance is expected to start at just after 8 am Pacific and will last for several hours, until approximately 5 pm Pacific. During this time, users won’t be able to access the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home or Account Management, and may encounter difficulty while signing in to PSN.

Because this maintenance window overlaps the normal PlayStation Store publish, we’ll be making new content available tonight. Grace Chen will post the store content as normal when the content is live.

Please stay tuned to the PlayStation Twitter feed for updates on tonight’s store publish and for a notice when PSN is fully back online.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Awesome! Thanks for pushing the PSN Store update 1 day ahead for this week. This is great to hear! I hope the maintenance tomorrow is testing how a new firmware will act. :)

Why on earth do maintenance, during the day, on a TUESDAY when new games come out? Especially Multiplayer DLC for one of the hottest games right now, RDR? So i can download the DLC and then what? I cant play it tomorrow from 8-5, so glad i took the day off…..

Sony, sometimes people plan around games and game release dates……you should know that…..way to put customer #1

AndyReidIsNotFat…

first of all, yes he is.

Second, how did you propose to “plan” around this game or your DLC? If the schedule was normal…the store wouldn’t update until tomorrow…sometime after 4pm Pacific time. So if you took tomorrow off, you wouldn’t be able to download and play it anyway. Nice troll attempt, too bad you failed.

Also who plans around for RDR dlc? Its extra content for a bad game. LOL!

Also, the update most likely won’t happen till late tonight. Expect it around midnight pacific time. So for us on the East Coast…probably 3am.

I have a few questions for you…
What are the extra features on the 3.50 fw update?
We were told that today the extra details would be released.

What is the maintenance for exactly?
And what the heck happened to the drop on sunday?
I know he was supposed to goto tgs, but it is over and should work from there.
He is technically at work while he is there..

That us all

Edit: That is all… lol

+ CHRISRHODE2004 on September 20th, 2010 at 4:52 pm said:

Just FYI – kudos for getting in the early update….but if you wait until late tonight to post the update it will be kind of pointless because im guessing some of those files are huge and the downloads might conflict with the maintence schedule so we will have to wait either way. Just saying.

So, want to explain what *psnbeta.us.playstation.com* is about?

If you have playstation plus, do you have access to the new dlc earlier than anybody else?

+ toasty_hoodie on September 20th, 2010 at 5:48 pm said:

Rofl…as usual, nothing yet.

No word on the 3.50 update, and no PSN update yet.

Expect this to be a LATE night tonight.

Anyone know if the Valkyria Chronicles II dlc comes out today too or is that next week

is it true this update is for fw 3.50 adding full 3D support and an import section for japanese games in the ps store?


122

+ etur0 on September 20th, 2010 at 7:33 pm said:

dang it, it looks like it won’t be until like 2hours after I get home from college tomorrow and the store won’t be updated until after I have went to bed oh well what can you do complaining about it doesn’t change nothing they are doing their best to update the store has fast as possible


123

+ Zantagor on September 20th, 2010 at 7:35 pm said:

the store update is supposedly scheduled for 9PM PST… meaning 12AM EST… that’s bull :/ As if only people on the pacific side matter. This is ridiculous. EST people won’t be able to get to the store until MUCH later than the rest in the end. Quite nice, very professional. What’s the point in updating “early” if in the end half of the country won’t be able to take advantage of it.


124

+ PhillyTheCat on September 20th, 2010 at 7:36 pm said:

@hardknock55~oh it’s true. it may even have something else nice to go with that. @all of the anxious japanese imports fans~ are you ready for “Gaia Seed”…or how about “Cho Aniki” yeah I bet you are excited about that one…go on give it a google and see all of those muscles lmao!


125

+ riclucas on September 20th, 2010 at 7:45 pm said:

12AM EST is too late… Oh well, the maintenance isn’t scheduled to begin before 11am EST so I’m going to bed now and will probably just get up earlier tomorrow so I can download everything before the maintenance begins.

P.S. I do hope the Heavy Rain PS Move update is added tonight… I can’t wait to replay it with new controls!


126

+ hardknock55 on September 20th, 2010 at 8:13 pm said:

i think alot of stuff is being move patched with this update and the japanese import section is going to be a nice addition to psn

soooo…”the updates a lie”? I am heading to bed and will download my DLC tomorrow after the maintenance

Interesting that on the day new items are supposed to be released, which I’d assume is the busiest weekday of PSN, that maintenance would be scheduled? Who plans these things man? lol.


135

+ FormerPSfan on September 21st, 2010 at 8:39 am said:

A couple of hints from someone with some knowledge of both Electronics and Networking. Maintenance that happens suddenly with little of no notice is not “regular” or “Scheduled”. Such “maintenence” would be carried out in off peak hours which as you obviously haven’t heard is not all day on a weekday, it is in fact when the network is NOT being used the most!!

Is it normal during maintenance, that my accounts are telling me my passwords or email is invalid, I can’t log in anywhere online that requuires PSN IDs, yet mysteriously I am signed in on the blog here. I hope this is part of maintenance and not something more serious going on.

Are we EVER getting something like opening someones gamer card directly from a game? For example, if I am playing MW2 and want to send a message to someone in my team, instead of having to open the XMB, scroll all the way to friends, let it load, then scroll to players met, let it load, then uneasily find who you are looking for, then send them a message. Instead, when we want to send a message, we simply open the game scoreboard and choose who you want to send a message to, then press some button that takes us directly to their gamecard. This is how it is on Xbox, this is how it should be on PS3. This would be SERIOUSLY cool. And cross game chat. And voice messages. And be able to report users directly from the PS3, without having to go to that outdated webpage that barely asks any information. And a new XMB. And… lots of stuff. These are the ones people want the most, not 3D, not some stupid little update. A BIG update, with all these features.
