Hi guys,

 

Mondays PSN Maintenance has been rescheduled for tomorrow, Thursday 28th August from 16:00 until Friday 29th August 05:00 BST
 
For the duration of the maintenance you will be unable to login to Account Management and the PS Store. PS Home will also be unavailable.
 
If you have successfully signed in to your account on a device before the maintenance on a PS4 or within the past 5 days on any other PlayStation device, you should be able to stay connected and not lose your online session.
 
Users who do not have their details cached, will not be able to sign-in to their account or begin an online gaming session.

 

There may be some additional downtime after the maintenance period for testing purposes.
 
Any questions please ask.

Timing has to always favor the US even though the largest community is the EU I suppose it's where the main master servers are.

 

Can't believe it's a bloomin bank holiday again like maintenence in may,I know it won't affect online play but many are off work may want access to the store and account management.

Yeah, it's done during the working hours of those in the Pacific Time zone. Which is why it always lands at 4pm here.

Y'know, it's been far too long since we've had a long ranting thread in the PS4 GD section about PSN downtime. Wonderful. I'll get the popcorn ready.

As long as you sign in before the maintenance you will still be able to play online.

Not all of us can sign in before the maintenance... I'm working at the office right now for example, tha'ts not the solution.

The logical thing to do is to schedule maintenances at late night hours, not at peak hours when the most gamers are online (evenings, weekend nights, etc). That's the way it's done in any computer system with any kind of user services. I'm a computer engineer, I know what I'm talking about.

But at least this time the maintenance does not coincide with a weekend like others in the past...If the reason for this is, as someone commented, that the maintenances are done by US workers under pacific time... I don't mind, simply get a group of them ready to work at night and pay them accordingly in order to do the maintenance for the european servers.

Lies, I can't play online even though I signed in before the maintenance. PSN has always been terrible and they never keep their promises. Why tell us that we will be able to play online when we clearly can't? Useless morons, the servers should be safe enough to avoid hackers anyway, then there would be no need for this maintenance. Sony have failed us yet again.

This may be off topic but will the dark souls 2 dlc (iron king) be downloadable using the season pass by the time that the maintenance comes?

Will that solve the DLC purchase problem for the Season Pass holders of Dark Souls 2 by any chance? Or do we have to wait until DLC3 comes out?

Hi guys, 

 

Just to clarify if you sign in on the morning of the maintenance you should be able to sign in during the maintenance window. 

 

There may be a few exceptions as during maintenance you may get signed out but this should be rare.

So, having not logged in since last night (and currently being out at work and not getting home until 6pm) I may not be able to use my PS3 for anything I actually use tonight?

 

Seeing that services with their own loging and own fees (that I am paying in addition to having PSPlus) suddenly becoming unaccessible if I'm not actively logged into PSN. So no Crunchyroll. no FF14.

 

How about one day you absolutely but your foot down and insist that, evne just once, a maintenance window not actually start until 8pm at the latest.

Also seeking confirmation to jim-shanie's question. So if I log on tomorrow morning, turn off the PS3, go to work, come back home, will I still be able to log in tomorrow evening? Or do I need to keep my PS3 powered on for the duration of my absence?
