If you are an avid gamer on the PlayStation Network (PSN for short), then surely you would have remembered the rather bitter experiences of the PSN being hacked sometime in 2011. Well, all of that is said and done now, although I am quite sure the hacking and downtime did leave the impression in some gamers’ minds that a downtime in PSN could be due to another breach in security. Guess Sony has learned well from history, and launch “pre-emptive” strikes so to speak by announcing the scheduled maintenance times for PSN. The latest scheduled maintenance would be held on Thursday, March 1st, from 16:00 until 07:00 hours. During that blackout period, the following services will be made unavailable – PlayStation Store (PC and Console), Customer Account Management, and Account Registration. Those who were signed into their account on PlayStation Network before the start of the maintenance are unable to remain signed in to their online session, and the moment the downtime period kicks off, they will be signed out. PS HOME, too, will also be unavailable throughout the duration of the maintenance. Gamers, you have been warned.
