[MAINTENANCE] Thursday, November 7th, 2013

29 replies 17965 views Edited Nov 5, 2013

Hi everyone,

 

We wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that there is a planned maintenance for PlayStation Network scheduled for Thursday, November 7th from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM Pacific Time (11 AM to 7:00 PM Eastern). To clarify, this is a 7 hour maintenance.

 

If you’ve signed onto PSN over the past few days, you’ll still be able to play online and access apps during this period, but you may receive a maintenance notification when attempting to access the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, and Account Management as these services will be unavailable. Be sure to sign in now if you wish to access the Network during this maintenance window.

 

Thanks for your patience during this maintenance timeframe, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

You need to start doing this maintenance at nite during off peak hours when people are asleep instead of during the day!' It's not being fair to us customers by doing this during the day!

As long as you sign in or have signed in the past few days you won't notice anything.

 

Thanks for the heads up!

Somewhere in the world there are people awake and gaming when you're asleep.

Remember that there are different timezones for different countries.

Xbox tweets about upcoming maintenance to their servers. Is there a simple more easily accessible way for PSN gamers to inform themselves about upcoming maintenance than this blog? I googled like crazy and couldn't find any mention of this new maintenence, only through a link someone passed around on twitter. Just afriendly suggestion.

Cheers!

This isn't a blog. It's a forum. Check the EU or US PS blog for notifications.

You're an idiot.  There is no such thing as fair or unfair when it comes to completing necessary server maintenance on a mostly free service.  You are also egotistical enough to not realize that not only are there other time zones than your own, but that for people who aren't sitting around at home all day, this IS the off peak time period.  The next time you feel like you need to reply to a post make sure you ask yourself the following questions first:  "does this contribute to the community in any way" and "will this make me look like an idiot?"

This time frame would be off peak for those working during the day, but not for insight workers on second shift. This is our peak time. But maintenance must be done. Also the service is free why complain if they are making it better.
