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.

when you say “the Store will not be publishing today.” Does that mean that the store will be up today without new stuff?

dont mind waiting for store only need my socom4 dlc is all. luckly i got my mk stuff before it went down my biggest concern is the free stuff ur giving us free games i think u should have just gave us 500-1000 bucks in are wallets so we could get what we want when the store is up and in the future if we see somthing we’d like instead of being limitted to a time period of junk or somthing we allready have. allso if u did that it wouldn’t matter cause the funds are non-refundible so u still would see the money back. eather way thanks for all ur hard work and keep it up ill stand beside u all the way

What does Sony have to say about Dirt 3 coming out today, and nobody being able to play online because of the Online Pass withing the game?

That kind of stinks, eeh?

What say you, Sony?

@newf_31 This is an update they do them all the time it has nothing to do with you it’s most likely some kind of internal PSN store fix. The problem with that is if Sony said were are doing a store update you and thousands of others would just assume it would be up today. This would be assumed even if you they wrote in the article in bold that the store would not be up. you do know what you do when you ASSUME don’t you!!!

You guys feel like updating asia.playstation.com on what’s going on? Ever? Do you even know that people in Asia have PS3s and play online? It sure doesn’t seem like it.

Sony should at least put a place somewhere where you could at least activate your games… I bought DCUO when the playstation network came back online to later find out that I cant play until I redeem the activation code in the playstation store… All the free stuff is great and all but, I just want to activate my game…

+ agranos on May 24th, 2011 at 8:31 am said:

All you people whining and moaning about how they didn’t debunk a rumor about when the Store will be restored need to shut up. YOU GUYS were the ones believing that rumor that Sony didn’t even start? I realize that Sony isn’t the best at communicating to people. But they’ve been keeping people up to date as best they can to when things will be restored. Don’t you think they’d have put it on the blog when the store would be brought back up? Quit your whining and go back to your crib, kthxbai

How about a refund program where we give you are crappy not fully functional ps3 and you give us our money back . Oh and congrats on those ” Top security firms” you hired to help that let the registration page be hacked .I am not a happy customer Sony I have owned a Playstations since the first one and this outage is now getting unacceptable. I am not an online gamer I have just been waiting for the store to get back so i can buy some new games So thank you again Sony for letting the rumors fly and springing maintenance on us .

See!!! All of you guys started saying that the Playstation store was gonna be open today and saying that the information was “leaked” and because that person “leaked” it Sony thought it cool to prove that guy wrong by prolonging the Playstation store date. Good going!

I am still waiting on my password reset email so waiting a few hours more won’t really kill me. I hope this down time means the store will be back this week.

Wow. Sony screws up again. I already returned my psp go and have been having a blast with portal 2 on xbox. I once crono cross comes out I am done being a Sony customer.

I can see why nintendo parted ways with them in 93.

Has PS3 made Sony any money?

QUOTE “Open to everyone, but don’t be a jerk.”

Comments are the lifeblood of the PlayStation.Blog, and we encourage you to keep the conversation going in a relevant, constructive way. Remember: no swearing, fighting, or using the comments section of this blog to be “first!” Think about what you’re saying before you press “Submit.” .All i got to say bout sony haters and their prestine way of not handeling situations well. This is a very good thing sony has posted yet i see some of you still whining about the store not being up. Sony has gone thru some issues and yet you ppl whining take them for granted. This is not how you should behave here so with that being said learn to have pacients sony again is tryng hard to fullfill the needs of all its gamers and hard core gamers out there. Dont take it out on SONY fully blame the person who caused this to happen in the first place. And if you hate sony so much and cant be pacient there is a thing called a world out there go enjoy it youd be surprised what your missing in the outside world.

How much would you like to bet that the store wont be up for the 31st? Or the 1st… OR the “Coming days” when they tell us so, OR “Within the next week” when they tell us THAT too?

Ive come to leanr that NOTHING Sony tells you will EVER be true, not even a little… Ive also come to learn that if you DO decide to beleive them, youre only setting yourself up to be hurt…

Well Sony that is all well and good, just as long as when the store is avaliable THE LEGEND OF THE DRAGOON will be avaliable as well. And it better be avaliable.

+ johnny_toastburn on May 24th, 2011 at 8:43 am said:

I, for one, appreciate the updates, even if it’s a “we don’t know exactly when.” Just putting SOMETHING online shows that the problem isn’t being ignored. I’m a new PS3 owner (purchased WHILE the Network was down) and I don’t regret my purchase for one second. Sony is providing much better customer service than a lot of companies out there!
