PlayStation Network Offline During Sony Conference

It has been announced that the PlayStation Network will be offline for ‘maintenance’ today from 9AM to 11AM PST (that is 5PM to 7PM to us UK folk). This also seems to be the period that the Sony Conference is being held at this year’s Gamescom.

During this time you may:

  • Not be able to access the PlayStation Store
  • Not be able to play online games
  • See a maintenance page when attempting to access the PlayStation Network

Pleaseclick hereto checkthe status of the PlayStation Network. Please note when you log into the PlayStation Network,a message indicating the PlayStation Network has been suspended may appear. This doesnot mean that your account has been suspended, it simply means the PlayStation Network has been taken offline. Please wait until the maintenance has been completed before attempting to connect to the PlayStation Network.

So there you have it, will we be seeing a drastic update to the PlayStation Network or just new Gamescom content on the Store. It has been a while since the last major Firmware update for the PS3, so there is no better time than now to roll out fresh new features to the network in order to compete, or at least match, its competitors.

Let your thoughts and theories commence in our comments below.
