The PlayStation Network will be down for maintenance tomorrow from 11am to 7pm Eastern Standard Time. If you’re planning to download the latest free PS Plus Games during this time you’re out of luck. Sony says that the online gameplay will still be functional, so your planned 7 hour marathon of Call of Duty: Ghosts can still go ahead.
I wonder if this will be the last scheduled maintenance before Sony releases the PlayStation 4 next Friday, November 15th.
Sony wrote the following on the PlayStation forums, outlining the scheduled maintenance:
We wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that there is a planned maintenance for PlayStation Network scheduled for Thursday, November 7thfrom 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.
