Here we go once more. Sony has the PSN down for maintenance, this time until possibly 3 a.m. Eastern time. The “scheduled maintenance” kick started early this morning around 9 a.m. and is going to affect the PS Store, the Music Unlimited, Video Unlimited, Account Maintenance and Registration. Same things that were affected last time, that last period that happened just a couple weeks. Online play is slated to still run for those that were up bright and early fragging fools. I know it isn’t affecting Netflix streaming, I’ve been watching Chappelle’s Show in the background for awhile now.
What is Sony working on? Two extended periods of downtime for “maintenance” in less than a month? Really haven’t seen anything different, downloads are just as slow as ever. Sony hasn’t divulged any info other than it is a scheduled outage. Any geeks notice anything? If so, let us know!
PlayStation Store Might Finally Be Back This Week.

If you don’t reside in Japan, Hong Kong or South Korea, you may possibly have access to the PlayStation Store and the rest Qriocity by week’s end. Sony announced that numerous security efforts were made to fully protect the infrastructure as well as the purchasing options. The first part of the restoration was the implementation of the PlayStation Network, which was customers ability to play online and access the social side of the network. Now, over two weeks later, the Store hopefully will be fully functional. If the Store does come back this week, it means gamers can finally redeem codes and start downloading the freebies from the Customer Appreciation Program, if available.
Personally, I wouldn’t hold your breath. We’ve heard many a promise from the mighty Sony regarding the return of the PSN and the PS Store. It took almost a month to get the partial return that we have and the latest rumor had the PS Store back by May 24th. I’ve been jonesing for the return so I can finally delve into the inFamous 2 beta before the game releases in a week. Many people would love to just have some sense of normalcy back to their gaming. I guess we’ll find out in a few short, painful days.
