UPDATED: PlayStation Network Scheduled Maintenance Today

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on May 24, 2011 // Sr. Social Media Manager

UPDATE: The maintenance has been completed, and Account Management and other affected functions are once again accessible. Thanks, as always, for your patience.

PlayStation Network is scheduled to undergo maintenance today, from about 8am until approximately 5pm Pacific time. During this time, registration and Account Management will be inaccessible, including the password reset process. While some users may experience difficulty signing in to PSN, the majority of consumers will be able to play online as well as sign in to external sites that require PSN authentication (like this one).

For those asking about the PlayStation Store, we’re still targeting restoration of all services by the end of this month. Contrary to reports, the Store will not be publishing today.

Stay tuned to the PlayStation Twitter feed for updates and a notice when maintenance has concluded.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Funny they said the store won’t be up today, but they started adding the free psn+ time to accounts already. Either they screwed up and will have to add another week or it’s coming back today.

However Sony, you fail. With all the money and ressources you have, how the hell is it taking this long? A small group of college graduate could have done it in a week, but you guys are just plain terrible at handling the whole thing.

All the people saying they will switch to the rival console wont really do it! They are just looking for attention!!!

Take your time with the store Sony, I don’t want none of this to happen again in the near future!

This time next week is the end of the month so hopefully then, then;)

+ I am 100% sure SONY wouldn’t want the PSN Store down at E3 time which is not that far away.

Sony came out shortly after it was reported that the store would be up May 24 and said that it would be up by the end of the month (and any date prior to that is speculative). I believe I saw it on Gamspot.com. They are not going to set a date after all of the PR hits they have been taking, be patient, it will be back up!!!!!!

Next weekend I’ll be really busy with all the new games I bought. I’m going to have Burnout Paradise , Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 and Lego Star Wars III : The Clone Wars to keep me busy. So take your time sony on getting the store up hopefully by May 31st but if it’s a few days after it’s still fine for me.

+ Gpz1100 on May 24th, 2011 at 7:55 am said:

Last week an article was written and it said the store would be up today. With no updates, sony let us think it was possible. I can take the network being down, I can take the store being down, and I can take living with the embarassment of being a sony fan. What I can take no longer, is the lack of communication from sony. Imma go play on LIVE now, call me when u grow up sony!

What a shame, I come back from a 5 day trip with no PSN, then I come back and find out I miss double xp for Black Ops, and THEN it turned out I can’t log on anyways to get in the last hour or so of double, and now I an’t even log in.

Sigh. Oh well, I’ve hardly had any PSN this month or the half of last month. I guess it’ll do me some good, I understand though, gotta do what you gotta do. I’m still supporting ya, Sony.

@69 sony is already giving us free stuff be glad that thay are doing that much for us.

+ SmilingTurtle on May 24th, 2011 at 7:59 am said:

I really dont understand the idiots that are complaining… are you guys blatant morons or something? Seriously?

Its like you’ve got no life other than your online PS3… you make Sony PS3 fans look like little premature moronic boys.

You cant wait a few hours for them to do maintenance on the PSN to MAKE IT BETTER~?
And also freaking read ~~ ” the majority of consumers will be able to play online as well as sign in to external sites that require PSN authentication (like this one).”

jeez.
The ones saying im sick of sony~ or im done are idiots.

Well my examinations will be over by the end of the month!! :D

+ surgesnugs on May 24th, 2011 at 8:00 am said:

If this is really going to take another week, why couldn’t you have set it up so people could at least download free game content? I received Mass Effect 2 for my birthday two weeks ago, and haven’t played it because I need to access the store to download the free DLC that lets me play the interactive comic with the story of ME1 first.

O.o hope the store goes up soon

Ok! Black ops better not be down!!!!

+ DuoMaxwell007 on May 24th, 2011 at 8:02 am said:

I honestly think you guys should release ALL the stuff we missed when the Store was down all at the same time when the store comes up.. because after waiting since april 20th (its may 24th now sony do the math)… i dont wanna have to wait close to another week for the store to be back up (yes thats right another week, you said the end of the month… the 31st is next tuesday) PLUS another 3-7 days AFTER the store is back to get a game that was supposed to come out on may 3rd (under siege)… so yeah just throw all the stuff we missed while the store was down on the same day it comes back up.

WTH? Stop giving out false info of when it’s going to be up, if you are just going to let it pass with nothing.

@26 ~ remanutd5

I also would like some pre-E3 news. I wanna know more about the NGP or what they’re gonna announce at least~ I’m so excited for it!!! Really want to know the price~ I think that $250 would be a killer price cuz it’ll directly compete with the 3DS then. Otherwise I’m fine paying $350 for it.

AR so far on the ngp looks sooooooo gooooood~~~~

I’d love for METAL GEAR SOLID PEACE WALKER to be one of the PS3 remastered games! Its my all time favorite psp game. ^_^

Great So I stay stuck sitting on DLC content that came with motorstorm and LA NOire. HURRY THE FRICK up sony.

+ ChrisHighwind on May 24th, 2011 at 8:06 am said:

I’m afraid I’ll have to echo the complaints about you guys not debunking the rumor about the store returning until the day it’s rumored to return. Sure you guys want to go back to doing game news again, but wouldn’t it hurt to have told us that the store will not be returning today as rumored before you announced the maintenance? If you’ll excuse me, I’ll be going back to cynical mode now.

+ MythicJWOP on May 24th, 2011 at 8:06 am said:

So, um, you knew there were false rumors about the Store’s return… yet you wait until the fake date arrives to debunk it?

Wow. I am legitimately angry right now. After all of this, I hope there’s a massive riot at your E3 conference. :|
