Postponed PlayStation Network maintenance rescheduled for today

Posted on August 28, 2014 AT 03:56am

Monday’s postponed PlayStation Network maintenance will now take place later today, August 28, Sony has announced.

The maintenance is scheduled for 9:40 a.m. until 4:50 p.m. Pacific Time (12:40 p.m. until 7:50 p.m. Eastern Time). During the downtime Sony will “deploy a series of back-end improvements to the network.”

If players have signed into the PlayStation Network at any point since August 23 then they will be able to continue playing online and accessing apps during the downtime. However, the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, and Account Management will be unavailable.

The original maintenance window was postponed following recovery from a distributed denial of service attack over the weekend that took the whole PlayStation Network down.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
