We wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that there is a minor maintenance planned for PlayStation Network today (Thursday, September 5) starting at 1PM Pacific Time (4PM Eastern). During this maintenance you will be able to play online as usual, if you have logged on to PSN within the past 5 days. The maintenance will take place between the hours of 1PM Pacific and 3PM Pacific.
Thanks for your patience during this minor maintenance timeframe, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thanks again for your patience during this time and we apologize for the delay.
Wow thanks for shutting it down during the 2-3 hour window of time I and most of the people I see online play during when we get home from work. Please tell me it was somehow related to a true fix for CUTTHROATS BATTLE FOR BLACK POWDER COVE. That'd be sweet.
