Hi everyone,

We know that you’re all very excited to hear all of the exciting PlayStation news coming out of Gamescom. Be sure to keep your eyes to this blog all week for all of the stories, pictures and videos that will be coming to you directly from Europe.

In order to continue bringing you the best online games experience on PSN, we will perform routine maintenance beginning Thursday, August 22nd. This maintenance will start at approximately 12:00 Noon PT (1:00PM MT / 2:00PM CT / 3:00PM ET) and last until around 6:30PM PT (7:30PM MT / 8:30PM CT / 9:30PM ET). During the maintenance period, you may receive a maintenance notification when attempting to access PSN.

The PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home and Account Management will not be available during the maintenance period but you WILL be able to access online play and apps provided that you have signed in to the Network at some point between now and the time of the maintenance. So please be sure to sign in now if you wish to access the Network during Thursday’s maintenance window.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your support.

  • pandainthebush

    so its 22:13 here and still no Playstation Store … how much longer? (btw im in the uk)

  • and how do I do to buy Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (if the PS Store is down) ? I want to play in the early access.

  • nightmarebrolen

    hold up i was logged in last night around 2:30 am central i still cant access online play

    Jesus, i still cannot believe people are complaining about backwards capability. The PS3 is reaching the end of it’s days, sure it’ll be supported but with PS4 releasing in november it’s days are numbered. So just stop, sony isn’t just going to patch in BC nor can PS3 do cross game chat. It’s just not possible on a hardware level.

    With the PS2 games being put up on the store and most PS2 games having re-released in HD remasterings, most of the note worthy games has been taken care of. The only game i would like to see updated onto the store is Champions of Norrath and Return to Arms but sadly you can’t do coop so it’s a moot point unless they make a remastered version of those games with PSN online coop capability which would be awesome.

    Anyway i log on daily so this never affects me but good to know you guys gave people the heads up several days earlier :)

  • antichristreborn

    Why so many ppl complaining about maintenance? i’d rather have maintenance if it keeps psn free

  • Anime_Boxer

    Is anybody else still seeing the maintenance page? I tried checking a few moments ago and its still going and it said it would only be going in till 6:30pm. So I’m just wondering if anybody else still sees it or are they still in maintenance?

Seriously?! Well, as long as it sorts out before tuesday… This sucks though -.- if its important I understand, but this shouldn’t be taking any longer:/

  • iiMagicStick

  • mike-defpak

  • GidDeviluke-US-

    Delete the PS Store App on your PS3, and download it again. this will resolve the issue regarding the maintenance message.

  • El_Matador_CRZ

    Has anybody been able to get into the PSN? I am still getting the maintenance message and I just wanted to know if its still under maintenance or is my PS3 just weirding out on me? I would really appreciate a response so I know if its back and my PS3 is just acting up or if its still in maintenance.

  • AirForceChalk

    It’s wierd…. I can access the PSN store no pronlem. I’ve been able to download my games with no worries.

  • Dark-Chaos-87

    WTH!?!?!? I can’t even sign in to PSN whatsoever. I’ve done everything that needed to be done (Subnetted my network throughout the house…. reset both routers to Factory Default… Even did Port-Fowarding) and absolutely nothing. What are you guys [Sony] doing to the Network? I want to play Battlefield 3 and/or get the Battlefield 4 trial.

  • Dark-Chaos-87

    ok, nevermind Sony… I’m back to loving you guys… Network problem was my fault :(

  • What are you guys doing to bring y’all network back up? Cause I’m still not able to sign in or use psn store. I can use the internet on my ps3 though, just can’t sign in or anything. :/. A little help would be nice.

  • Hello,

    my Playstation Store still undergoing maintenance. What can I do to fix it?

  • Okay,

    to solve reinstall Playstation Store.

    1) Delete Playstation Store;
    2) Click on Playstation Store again;
    3) Download and Install Playstation Store again (32 MB);

    It worked for me.

  • I’m still showing as the maintenance is still going on here when I try to access the store. Was the maintenance extended? (1:39AM CT Saturday, 9/14)

  • I posted before seeing searleus’ post. What he posted worked for me. Thanks!

  • ChilledSock
