Sony is giving PlayStation owners a heads up today so that they’re not caught unaware when PlayStation Network only provides limited access. That’s because the company needs to make some back-end improvements to the network which is why it has scheduled a PSN maintenance. During this time Account Management, PlayStation Store and PlayStation Home will not be available.
The PlayStation Network maintenance has been scheduled for Monday, November 17th, 2014. It will start around 10:00am Pacific and last for approximately six hours until 4:00pm Pacific. It shouldn’t take more than six hours that Sony has already set aside, obviously any unforeseen issues can increase the time required to get things up and running once again, but there’s a slim chance of that happening.
Don’t worry though, you will be able to play games online, on one condition. Anyone who has signed into the network since November 13th will be able to play games online during the time PSN is under maintenance. They will also be able to access partner applications like Netflix during this period. However PS Home, PS Store and Account Management will be down for all.
Those who haven’t signed into the network recently can just log on today so that they’re able to play games online come November 17th. Or they can just choose to wait six hours on that day, its not like they’ll have to wait for an eternity.
