Scheduled PSN Maintenance To Last About 13 Hours Today

Sony intends to "keep you better informed" about the PlayStation Network and as such, here's a friendly PSA.

If you check the PlayStation Blog, Matthew Harper of the "recently-formed PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Management Team" has alerted us to the PSN maintenance scheduled for Monday, April 16.

It's just routine maintenance, apparently, but it will last approximately 13 hours; running between 6:00 a.m. PDT / 9:00 a.m. EDT and 7:00 p.m. PDT / 10:00 p.m. EDT. During this span of time, users won't be able to access the Store, Home, Account Management, or play games online, and PSN enabled websites won't service users, either (that includes the Blog). For updates and the notice that will tell you when everything is back up and running at full capacity, reference the PlayStation Twitter feed.

So if you've got any online-related stuff penciled in for the day, you're going to have to postpone. Not that we think gamers "pencil in" time to spend on the Network but hey, what do we know? Maybe some people are just that organized. Or anal. Whatever.

I've been on a gaming break for the past couple days. Pouring hours upon hours of gaming takes its toll on you. Before my break, I was playing some Dark Souls. I'm cursed right now, but I'll get that sorted out whenever I get back to it.

Sometimes that down time is absolutely vital. Then you come back all fresh and excited.

Hey,
I'll often leave a game when I'm stuck in the same spot for a few hours.

And it always seems that I come away with a different perspective of it when I come back to it & quickly get past my "stuck spot".

Just one of those "Damn, I couldn't see the forest through the trees" moments I guess

Good to know just so I don't think it's my network all farked up. Though I don't think Netflix plays when the network is down anymore (it did during the massive outage) so that sucks but I'll survive.

By sheer coincidence (I assure you), I won't be accepting any multiplayer invitations on that day anyway.

That's fine, I'm near the end (I think) of Skyrim. Just have the main quest and the civil war quests to do now. I'm working on getting my smithing up and killing dragons. So no worries here.

I'll be asleep when the maintenance starts and I'll be awake shortly before it ends. I got back into Skyrim anyway. xD

I'll be working most of that anyways. Then I'll be with the wife and baby. By the time they go to bed and I play games, it will be online for over an hour anyways.

No bother for me, at all.

Cue the panic on the Intenet as many gamers who don't bother reading news, or other sources discover no PSN and go ballistic.

Won't effect me as I'm not only a SP mode player, I usually don't start my gaming marathons until late night anyway.
