The PlayStation Store Won’t Go Live Today, PSN Maintenance Scheduled

Last week it was rumored that Sony had sent out a message to developers informing them the PlayStation Store would reopen today, however the rumor was false, as the firm’s confirmed there’ll be no store reopening today, even as the network on a whole undergoes maintenance.

“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),” the Sony via the US PS Blog.

“The latest information I have on PlayStation Store is that we are aiming to have it live by the end of May. Contrary to popular rumours, it will not be reopening tomorrow but we will let you know here as soon as the date is confirmed.”

We’ll keep you posted.

    Well the Playstation Store won’t return today or tomorrow but i think this is not a normal maintenance, something big is coming or it’s just a preparation for the launch of Playstation Store.

    they should know better, sony BMG is a FREAKING MUSIC COMPANY!
    WTF does that have to do with PSN?
    sony BMG in greace and JP got hacked and there site was down for a while, but in no way will that effect PSN.
    does make you wander what sony has done with there security if there STILL getting hacked!
