The PlayStation Network story of the week seems to be an extended period of maintenance that, while initially planned for a 12-hour period on Thursday, extended into Friday and will now continue to plague some users into Saturday.
The news comes courtesy of the PlayStation Knowledge Center, where you can monitor PSN's official status. The Knowledge Center claims that the maintenance period, which is designed to upgrade PSN software in some fashion, will run until 2:00 AM Pacific on Saturday, January 19. The outage affects PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, and online gaming, though the post notes that some users may still be able to play games online, particularly if they had signed into PSN in the five days prior to maintenance.
Of course, some users are reporting that they're still unable to play online despite having signed in during the five-day grace period. The outage is affecting staff members here at PSU differently, so be sure to let us know in the comments below if you're able to play online.
Keep it glued to PSU.com for further updates as the situation develops.

i got kicked off during the maintenance, some of my friends asked me yesterday 1/17 why i wasnt on because they were able to get back on that day around 8pm est. so i guess i gotta suffer through this with those who are still offline.

I was online with GT5 earlier, and didn't have any problems. I haven't checked since then though.

#9: It just proves that kids these days are to spolied and can't live without beening online 24/7. Offline play or watching a movie won't kill you for a change even if its for a couple of day. At least you can still use netflix when it was down for maintenance.

@10 I can't use netflix or anything related to logging in.. But I agree. Read a book, work out, watch a movie, go outside. At least for the next couple days.

PSN in maintenance doesn't bother me a bit, just as long they make PSN better!
