PlayStation Network Regular Scheduled Maintenance

Patrick Seybold's Avatar Posted by

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.

Add Your Own

Yeah, I also noticed that HV bowling has a disc-based option on the 21st…but I already own it via PSN. I hope they add some other options in the single player mode for the PSN version…I already beat everything except for Hiro.

New content tonight O.O that’s awesome! Very considerate of you guys.

What about games that were supposed to be getting patched for Move Support? will they be affected as well?

I appreciate the early warning and the PS Store update a day early. The only real drawback to a Tuesday system update is that customers will be purchasing new releases on Tuesday and won’t be able to log into PSN.

I was wondering if the Maintenance will affect the release of the Heavy Rain Move patch? I’d love to get it earlier than later.

P.S. Sony Please patch HV Bowling for NA. Move and bowling seem so fun.

Enhance the ps3 trophy system. dont tell me post it on blog.share as we all know thats useless.

If this is a scheduled maintenance, why wasn’t it scheduled for today or Wednesday or Thursday? Why not schedule the next one to avoid the PS Store update?

Over 50 responses and many questions that will not get any answers.

Thanks for the heads up….

Now I have plenty of time to play “All Points Bulletin” Frisbee golf with the disc… :(

I know this isn’t on your list of priorities, but those of us who bought Marvel Ultimate Alliance have been left out in the cold for months without a patch to fix the sound issues that the 3.40 Firmware update caused. There has been no fix thus far, and it really takes away a great aspect of the game.

Please help correct this, because Activision is blaming it on you!

September 20th, 10:32 am

You guys better give us the rest of the Move demos!!!!

Kirkpad said:

September 20th, 10:33 am

The reason it was likely made for tomorrow is because Heavy Rain is updated on Wednesday.

Frulond said:

September 20th, 10:48 am

ahm… what does the “PSN Beta” in the drop down menu does? =p

TomHoang said:

September 20th, 10:55 am

So we get the Enslaved demo tonight?

Chuckbait said:

September 20th, 11:10 am

Thank you for letting us know. And updating the store a day early is a nice touch :)

Reule said:

September 20th, 11:11 am

So, when the PSN Store update goes live later this evening can we expect all of the content that would have been released tomorrow? To be more specific, the new BlazBlue character Valkenhayn and the Liars and Cheats pack for Red Dead Redemption. Been really waiting for those and I don’t want to wait another week. :(


September 20th, 11:15 am

What happen to THE DROP? LOL THE WHOLE SCEA IS A JOKE. Bunch of SLACKERS , i dont want to hear excuses why you couldn’t do your job because seriously it takes a whole week to do something that takes a few hours. ” i was snapping shots at TGS so i didn’t have time” LOL WHAT A JOKE . BUT like they say california is full of h0m0s
In a REAL work environment the behavior of slacking off is not tolerated . The best thing for SCEA to do is DROP “THE DROP ” since it is such a hard job to multi task. And stop partying so much that way you dont have a
hangover the next day and cant function doing your job . and i can’t wait for nov. 2 , 2010 when the judge tells

Thanks for the warning. Looking forward to tonight’s PS Store update :)

mybro92 said:

September 20th, 11:33 am

Ah man, well thanks for the update. One question though (if your able to tell us), whats the update for? Is it for just updating old things or is their some kind of problem that you guys found and will take a long time to fix?

RyuuFox said:

September 20th, 11:49 am

I couldn’t get log in in like 3 days :/

September 20th, 11:49 am

Just got a move controller, unfortunately, GameStop messed up my order of the sports bundle and gave me an x-box controller. Don’t have bundle yet, so all I can do is navigate xmb with my second controller. Did that for an hour though!

vcotson said:

September 20th, 11:54 am

@27 i think they fixed that with the resent update 2 weeks ago

SupaGokuMan said:

hush404 said:

September 20th, 12:34 pm

… I havn’t been able to access PSN for 2 days now… I keep getting the 80710B23 error.. :( Should I be worried?

jlmc1978 said:

It’s hilarious to see all these people who have the negative comments for Sony and the PSN service & it’s updates. Thankfully, Sony doesn’t judge the whole community based on the actions of a few little kids who get mad and want to pitch a little temper tantrum. If someone was giving me something free, and keeping it secure for me for free, then I don’t think I’d have the audacity or GALL to complain like some of the above comments.
Not to mention these people probably can’t use the interweb for research, or they’d know already that the morons who call themselves hackers are pushing Sony’s hand at security and causing some of these updates..blame the idiots, not Sony. Thank a hacker (I mean theif).

What a joke some folks are …they should be transported back to the day where NOTHING on a game console was free and there was no online play or firmware updates..and they could just be stuck with their 16-bit system and have no choice but BUY everything for it if they wanted to play a game. No appreciation..geez.

Then what about the new RDR DLC coming out tomorrow? Perfect timing!

survivorof911 said:

September 20th, 12:40 pm

When will you give us the details about firmware 3.50 for ps3?, you said you would give details about it today.

Thrasher20 said:

September 20th, 12:44 pm

Hey Jeff, since not everyone who logs in to PSN goes on the PSB, you guys should consider doing like a message prompt as soon as the person logs in to PSN so that way they know about some very important news like this for instance

Gigidy17 said:

September 20th, 12:45 pm

Off topic……how long does it take for a idea to gain approval on blog share? cause in the past 4 months ive posted 5 and im still waiting for approval.

survivorof911 said:

September 20th, 12:50 pm

all ive heard was a bunch of rumors about firmware 3.50, time to know the facts!


September 20th, 1:07 pm

@jlmc1978  you’re pathetic , you’re just another fanboy who likes getting ripped OPEN lol clown . im glad ps3 is getting ripped OPEN . i got 2 ps3 so you know what that means.keep believing everything sony tells you . maybe 1 day you will grow up and grow balls. i bet you have a gaping hole which likes getting fisted . im done with sony clownboys

fester420 said:

September 20th, 1:07 pm

when is PAIN getting the Move update? And why would you put planet minigolf as a move demo when you need to purchase the game to use the move controls?

GreyPliskin said:

September 20th, 1:15 pm

So we get store update early? Does anybody know if the BlazBlue DLC will be available today also.I’m talking about the new character for the game.

TwinDad said:

September 20th, 1:19 pm


I missed “The drop” this week and wondered what happened. Then I recall Jeff posting about Sid and Rey coming back from TGS. I assume that they didn’t do a Drop this week due to travel to/from TGS 2010.

xXSksIXx said:

September 20th, 1:25 pm

I heard that the Valkenhayn DLC for BlazBlue was going to be released on the 21st. Kinda surprised nobody’s brought that up yet.

xXSksIXx said:

September 20th, 1:26 pm


Sorry; didn’t see you there.

@NURADEEN: Mommy doesn’t hug you enough, does she? Or does she hug you too much? I don’t have to ask what level of idiot you are, it’s already blatantly obvious by your use of adjective in place of posting factual statement and constructively speaking in a manner consistent with that of the other intelligent people who precede yours. I know they give out those special awards to persons of your intellect (woops, big word)..your uhm..2+2’ism..and apparently you’re shooting for the special “moron of the month” club. Go get your hero cookie now, and let mommy hug you/your root.

GreyPliskin said:

September 20th, 2:04 pm

@xXSksIXx Thanks for the info man.So I guess we get it today instead of tomorrow.

September 20th, 2:10 pm

I’m sorry. You may have already posted a response to this, but as I looked, I couldn’t see anything. Uh… If everything is going to be down for maintenance tomorrow and it seems Red Dead Redemption is getting an early release I suppose a day early, well, logically I’d assume that’s the case for ‘Heavy Rain.’ So, since Heavy Rain was scheduled to get a patch tomorrow for Move support, does that mean we’ll be getting that patch early as well, or is it still on for tomorrow evening it will be available or will we be waiting until the 23rd to get this patch update for Heavy Rain. Or did I misunderstand everything, and it only means that Heavy Rain Move Edition DEMO would be released tomorrow. Can you give us some information on what we can expect exactly from Heavy Rain Move Edition? Thanks man! This must really suck for you having to cater to all these questions of everyone trying to squeeze information and possibly info you can’t really talk about. i.e. the Netflix.

Is Sonic Adventure coming to the PS Store tonight or Wednesday? I was looking online and came across websites that said the 22nd, but I don’t see why they would delay this game by a day, instead of just adding it with the PS Store update…


September 20th, 2:50 pm

@jlmc1978 i hope psn gets shut down soon so lil h0m0s like you start crying and come on the blog so i can laugh at you some more. like i said grow some balls . its not my fault u r a loser in life and the only time you win something is when its a ps trophy . lol pathetic

Wheels86 said:

September 20th, 3:02 pm

Just curious I keep getting Error Code 80710B23 is this because the PSN is down and being worked on or is this a problem with my wireless connection

jlmc1978 said:

September 20th, 3:03 pm

It’s truly amazing to me that all these little idiots have to do is call people names and tear up the English language with their grammatical raping of it…and actually think their little insignificant ramblings amount to anything.

@NURADEEN: Keep hiding behind your keyboard & mouse, pretending to be some l33t nerd. You’re really making headway at putting fear in the hearts of millions.
