UPDATED: PlayStation Network Scheduled Maintenance Today

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.

  • Well ok! I can’t wait for when the store will be up!

  • Thanks for the heads up. It’s nice to be prepared for downtime.

  • My Modnation Racers Sackboy kart code expires tomorrow (March 25, 2011, as does everyone else’s). If the PSN Store comes back up after that, does that mean I’m SOL?

  • this has been the longest month EVER!!! C_C

  • Looks like PS-Store might be back this week! Can’t wait to finally buy my brother his B-Day gift!

  • I sooooo Need to download OUTLAND. ( DROOLING )

  • Wow, really? Nobody’s going to be happy.

  • Thanks for the update, at least we will still be able to play online.

  • Talk about favouritism.

    17:00 – 00:00 BST = EU Maintenance
    08:00 – 17:00 PST = NA Maintenance

    So completely destroys EU’s night but completely fine for NA. Always is the case, getting sick of it Sony. Treat EU with more respect or we will revolt.

  • I can’t wait for the free games, Wipeout is gonna be so exiting.

  • what about an update on the Playstation Blog E3 meet-up?

  • When can I redeem the all of L.A. Noire DLC I have? Hurry up and get the store back.

  • ultimate_weapon1

    Now the Store will be Open Tomorrow, or not ?

  • The thing that bothers me (and I’m sure most of you) is that Sony didn’t do anything to stop the rumor of a May 24th return. We all know that you can’t believe everything you read on the web, but a short blog entry would have gone a long way to make it’s users less un-happy today. Damage control is Sony’s glaring weakness here. The store is important to some (if not all) of us. I have DCUO and have had it since the day before the outtage. I’m really kicking myself for not running strait home and getting started…. Ahhhh… Live and learn… Thanks for the heads up Sony… Better late than never.

  • my download list is all i want

  • Thanks for the info Jeff, although I sure was hoping the store would be up today…got a bunch of vouchers for exclusive content and DLC that I can’t access, and there were quite a few games I was going to buy (Fancy Pants Adventures, Outland) that I can’t until then. Could they maybe at least fix the voucher thing so those who are stuck with them, like the poor people who can’t access their online Mortal Kombat because they need to redeem their “ombat Kode”, can actually get to do this? Thanks again, you da man Jeff!

  • I want the store. Hurry up! Please?

  • Sony can take their ps3 and shove it. I’m done! I’ve been a loyal fan from day one.i can remember getting hooked on the ps1 . But its bye,bye!

  • Oh can i ask i question IS sony giving us 50$???? haha OR only GAMES (SORRY BADEnglish)

  • What?!

    No, this is horrible. I had a release while you guys were repairing my PS3. I got it back after the PSN went down. I waited a long time for this. And you say wait more? When is it coming? Huh?!

  • can anyone tell me why its taking the store so long to come back?

  • Thanks for the heads up. But it is ridiculous what Sony is doing to Brazil customers. Latin America PS Store is not a welcome back program, it’s a obligation towards us. And by the way, Latin America main languague is spanish. We speak portuguese. PORTUGUESE.

  • Btw,Sony said the store won’t be up until the end of may :(

  • Thanks for the report Jeff. I would love to know how much material will we see for the next Playstation Store update. All I know is that Playstation Network has been one for about 10 days here. Look like the sources that I read the past few days got it wrong. hmmm. However still looking forward to the PS Store opening within the next week or so.

    Thanks again.

  • *sigh* :/

  • thanks for the heads up , hopefully some kids dont complaint too much now , hey Jeff any Pre E3 playstation meet up blog news ? i want to reserve my LA tickets now , dont want to wait till last minute like last year ( even though was worth it ) , any Pre E3 NGP news ? any other PSP games added to the playstation remastered list besides Monster Hunters ? Metal Gear Peace Walker would be fantastic !!! anyways good to see posting on the blog

  • lol, some of the meltdowns in here.

  • Thanks for all the information, and thanks for all your hard work this past two months. I also appreciate the generosity of you giving out free games, even though a lot of us are way too greedy and unappreciative to deserve such an apology gift.

    Anyhow, keep it up! Thanks again.

  • i feel sarry for all the ppl that have DLC to redeam if sony dont get the store up before it expires. my simpathy goes out to you if that does happen.

  • Oh damn no PS Store! Oh well might as well wait until next week :) I REALLY HOPE YOU WILL FULLY RESTORE PSN BY THE END OF MAY—– NOT June.. -_____-‘

  • That notice is making me raging at Sony now. :l

  • @26: seriously, right? It’s funny.

  • but isnt it end of the month?

  • Sad news, but at least we know when it will go down and be back.

  • thanks for the update

  • man they better get the store up during this.

  • So does this mean we can expect a PSN store update tonight after you do the “maintenance”?

  • Give me Store, plz

  • well that’s good because we don’t want it to get hacked again

  • It only does maintenance.

  • wow thanks for the heart break sony.

    @36 doubtful they just said the store would not be up today.

  • Wow tahts my psn bcard expired becuase it gose out in 2 days Thanks Alot Sony!

  • Im glad there has been progress, but what i DO NOT get, is why the PS+ subscription was given like 5 days ago, and yet we can’t even do anything with it until May 31st (maybe?) so we get screwed out of almost 2 weeks of the service?

  • You got a multi billion dollar company ,with a two cent security system ,what a joke!!!!

  • Tsk, Tsk, Tsk…

  • I appreciate the updates but they are so vague. I understand a time-line is impossible but I am seeing alot of people switching over. I got an xbox 360 for my birthday, the weekend PlayStaion network went down. I just can’t wait to have the store back. I understand that it is one of the main causes of credit card issues because that is where the credit card is used. I hope you guys can fix it soon. I love my PS3 and my xbox 360 is just a shiny netflix player.

  • OK, sooo the last time we heard that the PSN was down for some time, it last for like a month, hope it never happens again XD

  • This maintenance is for the store. Account management is involved with store functions. Sony did something similar to this when they redesigned the store a couple of years ago.

    I’m calling it now, the store will be up by this Friday!

  • I was really hoping we’d see the store today. I’ve got two cards to add to my account and use…. Waiting…..

  • loser sony and its fake workforce of lazy fools.
